It's always good to give a nod to your hosts and the Duchess of Cambridge has been a most considerate guest on her second tour of Canada. We've had two appearances from the Maple Leaf brooch already with days still to go before home time and now we've got a hat trick of red outfits as Kate makes the most of Canada's national colour in her tour wardrobe. Here's day five of Royal Wardrobe, Canada.
Kate began day five in Whitehorse, Yukon where the temperatures are rather chilly right now and coats are a must. For this set of engagements, the Duchess of Cambridge chose a red CH Carolina Herrera coat that is new for her but has all the Kate trademarks in it.
There's the high collar that fastens at the neck and big buttons and the coat has a double breasted design, a firm favourite with Kate.
There's a fitted waist that flares out into a knee length finish while the long sleeves are simple but chic.
Kate wore a pair of burgundy heeled loafers, another new look for her and one that worked well. Add in a sleek updo and you have wintry winner that's all about warmth as well as style.
The second set of engagements on day five saw Kate head to Carcross and get into that dressdown vibe again. It was an active afternoon for the Duchess of Cambridge so as all well versed royals know, the heels and the hems have to go and the skinny jeans need to come out.
The trousers were paired with a very warm and cosy looking coat jacket - or was it a thick cardigan - by the Canadian brand Sentaler. The debut piece is a nice nod to her host country (again) and in a colour that always works on Kate, pale dove grey.
It features a shawl collar, a statement belt and can't miss them even looking in the other direction ribbed sleeves which add to the warmth of the piece and make it look even cosier.
Add in some cowboy boots and very subtle earrings and you have the duchess doing dress down with a regal twist. Day five was all about mixing it up.
