On the third day of Kate Middleton and Prince William’s Boston tour, the Princess of Wales gave to me…a new obsession with houndstooth.
On December 2, the Princess of Wales stepped away from her husband—and their coordinated outfits—to make a solo visit to Harvard University. Meeting with leading experts at the school’s prestigious Center on the Developing Child, Middleton wore a blue and black Emilia Wickstead dress that, while simple, was anything but boring. The houndstooth check, which spread to the collar and built-in belt details, gave the dress’s basic silhouette a bold upgrade.
Middleton wore her hair down and kept jewelry to a minimum, opting for subtle gold hoops by Liv Thurlwell, her sapphire engagement ring, and a tiny blue purse with gold hardware. She finished off the look with a pair of suede black pumps by Gianvito Rossi.
“Advances in science are at the heart of The Center on the Developing Child at Harvard,” a spokesperson for the princess shared in an Instagram post. “Great to see how international collaboration with The Centre for Early Childhood is facilitating the sharing of best practice on the early years across the Atlantic.”
