The Contrast Coat is a long elegant coat with a seam on the waistline and a flared skirt. It is made of a soft medium weight herringbone beige wool felt trimmed in brown cotton velvet on the top collar, cuff bands, back belt and pocket flaps. It has a long vent which adds to the flare of the skirt and also small belt on the back waist.
The mid-calf length coat had been shortened to above the knee for the first official engagement of Catherine Middleton after her engagement to Prince William. It is by Wiltshire-based designer Katherine Hooker.
I prefer the shorter version of the coat. I think that this really colour suits the Duchess.

Italian-made sheer floral lace knee-length design with a detachable silk-blend slip and scalloped trim, long sheer sleeves, nips at the waist and a zip fastening along the back. By the Italian designers Dolce & Gabbana.
This is a lovely lace dress in a style very much favoured by the Duchess.
1- The Duchess of Cambridge wore this dress on 7th November 2015 to attend the British Legion’s Festival of Remembrance with the Duke of Cambridge at the Royal Albert Hall in London.
This is the “Addison” multi azure printed silk dress with its jewel-toned print, sheer long sleeves and ankle grazing length. By the British brand L.K. Bennett.
I partly like this dress and I partly dislike it. I like the material, the length, the effect it gives when it is worn. But I am not too keen on the print, and it looks a bit old-fashioned when it is worn by the Duchess.
1- Kate wore this dress on 22nd April 2016 for a dinner with Michelle and Barack Obama at the home of the Duke and the Duchess of Cambridge in Kensington Palace, London.
