Kate Middleton dons her trusty Orla Kiely dress once again on a charity outing with the Prince on Tuesday 19th November.

The Royal couple were visiting the offices of the Only Connect charity which provides training and support to help ex offenders and prisoners realize their value in society.

The Duchess previously wore the dress in question in February 2012 when visiting a school art class in Oxford. The brown bird print dress, which was bought for a mere £162.50 during a sales period, was not the only feature to make a repeat appearance. Once again Kate accessorized with a black clutch, brown tights and brown ankle boots.
Orla Kiely, a London based 46-year-old fashion designer, is best known for her graphic prints and kitsch patterns in her ready to wear collections, homeware, luggage and furnishings. Popular amongst the fashionable stars, Kirsten Dunst and Alexa Chung have also been seen wearing creations from the talented designer.
Kate does not hesitate to bring back old favourites from her wardrobe. She has previously repeated outfits such as a cream Roskanda Ilincic lavender dress, wearing it firstly during her North American Royal Tour in Beverly Hills in July 2011 and then again in July 2012 to an arts reception during the London Olympics.

Kate and William are expected to attend the UK premier of Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom in December. Will she bring us a new look or an outfit without surprise?

One thought

  1. Although repeating outfits is a good way of showing she can economize, I’m really not a fan of this dress – it looks dull and isn’t her colour. Suspect it’ll be a new dress for the Mandela premiere though – she doesn’t tend to reuse her evening gowns. Would be great to see a Jenny Packham!
