Girls, let's talk. Here's the thing, we're fans of Kate's penchant for coat dresses, but sometimes we think the style might veer into Camilla territory (not good when you're 29). The dove grey coat and matching silk dress that the Duchess of Cambridge sported at the Order of the Garter ceremony is evidence of this. Yes, the colour is understated and pretty, the embroidery is delicate, but it's all so...boring. So we've-seen-it-all-before.

Both Kate's grey dress and coat are by Katherine Hooker. According to the designer the Buxton Dress is "cut on the bias in Mercury crepe silk satin" and the Buxton Coat is made of Ash Simla silk.
Kate Middleton's grey suede pumps are the Malone by Rupert Sanderson. (Confirmed on the designer's Facebook). She also wore a cross necklace we've seen her sporting for many years now.
Kate's hat is by Rachel Trevor-Morgan and she's wearing the Kiki Mcdonough Grace Topaz and Diamond Stud Earrings.

Kate's suede clutch at the Order of the Garter
ceremony is the Carole by Emmy Custom.
It's the same bag that mum Carole sported at the royal wedding, along with shoes and a coat-and-dress combo very similar to what her daughter was wearing at the Order of the Garter Service. We like that the Middleton ladies swap clothing and accessories. Refreshingly normal.
But, when you're barely 30 and already dressing like your mom we'd definitely say your look is a little...dated. Too old Kate! The look is elegant but just too old. When it comes to coat dresses we love you looking fresh faced and chic in McQueen!
