Lady in Red: Duchess Kate Rocks OxbloodKate Middleton looks ravishing (and o-so-royal) in a perfectly tailored skirt suit blazing with the trend-right hue of the season. Who designed it and where did Kate wear it? Read on…
We don't know if it's the skill of the designer or that patented Middleton "effortless chic" vibe, but the ensemble she wore in early October to launch a scholarship at London's Middle Temple looks chic, cute and timelessly classic all at once. From French design house Paule Ka, the set pairs a double-breasted (yet trim and cropped) jacket with a trendy skater skirt that's just short enough to be subtly flirty.

Kate's nailing at least four fall trends at once here - the deep, rich wine color, the cropped length of the jacket,
the flowy A-line of the skirt, and to anchor it all, jet black opaque tights and matching suede heels. It also doesn't hurt that she accessorizes with her flowing, glowing chestnut mane. (Yep, we're jealous.)
