This week marked two official U.K. appearances for Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, first for the UK-Africa Investment Summit on Monday (January 20) followed by the Ely and Caerau Children’s Centre Visit on Wednesday (January 22).

First up, Prince William, Duke of Cambridge and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge attended a reception to mark the UK-Africa Investment Summit at Buckingham Palace in London.

This is her first time wearing the British brand Needle & Thread, and if it’s any indication of future looks, it is quite a successful entrée to the label.

With vintage-modern elegance and a sophisticated yet statement crimson hue, scintillating with embellishment, the dress from the Needle & Thread Resort 2020 collection is striking.

Accessories in the form of a Jenny Packham clutch, Gianvito Rossi suede pumps, and Soru ruby earrings — yet, despite all the matchy-ness, there was still plenty of dimension to the look.

For Catherine’s Ely and Caerau Children’s Centre visit in Cardiff, south Wales, she merged conservative with a bit more playful style in an accessibly chic look.

Her classic coat was from Massimo Dutti, as was her perfect black turtleneck.

It was the Zara pleated, leopard-print skirt that really sold the look to me, though. It was subtle animal print, yes, but it had a spirited sensibility that still maintained her level of expected elegance.

If you’re wondering about her necklace, it is by Daniella Draper featuring the initials ‘G,’ ‘C,’ and ‘L’ for the Duchess’s three children: Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis.
