Kate Middleton Looks Picture Perfect In This Affordable Dress She Recycled For A Recent Event

Kate Middleton, the future queen of England, recycled a stylish and affordable dress during her appearance at University College London's Centre for Longitudinal Studies, according to a Daily Mail report. She made the appearance as part of the Children of the 2020s project. The cohort study will follow holistic development of children ages 5 months through 5 years old. 

The research lines up with Kate's public work focused on childhood development. Per People, she said, "our early childhoods shape our adult lives, and knowing more about what impacts this critical time is fundamental to understanding what we as a society can do to improve our future health and happiness."

During the outing, the Duchess of Cambridge revealed that she's researching her family tree, learning more about both the Middleton and Goldsmith sides of her family (via Daily Mail). The duchess was all smiles in her stylish outfit, which was a part of a previous season's wardrobe, Hello reported. Read on to find out all the details of the houndstooth dress and where Kate wore it previously.

Here are the details of Kate Middleton's Zara dress

In January 2020, Kate Middleton wore the gray houndstooth Zara dress, which cost a mere £16 on sale from £89.99 to a royal engagement in Bradford, the Daily Mail reported. The dress, which hit the duchess at mid-calf, featured long, puffy sleeves, and a pussybow neckline with a pleated skirt and matching belted waist. Kate paired it with Hugo Boss court heels in gray and "Empress" earrings by Mappin & Webb. Unfortunately, if you're looking for the dress, it sold out quickly after she debuted it 21 months ago. 

Kate kept her gorgeous brunette locks loose around her shoulders in stylish, big curls, and she wore simple makeup that showed off her skin with a lovely glow that highlighted her features perfectly, according to Hello!. While indoors at the event, Kate wore a neutral black face mask to protect COVID-19 that went well with her affordable, recycled dress. In all, Kate looked effortlessly stylish and comfortable during her outing.
