Apologies in advance for the royal pun here, but Kate Middleton is undoubtedly the queen of colour. We can probably assume that she's following in the footsteps of Queen Elizabeth, who always wears bright colours so that she can be spotted in a crowd. Or maybe Middleton just likes her brights (and has brushed up on her spring/summer 2022 fashion trends via our bumper report). Either way, she's been known to wear trendy colours right as they're gaining steam, and that was certainly the case today at the annual Commonwealth Day Service at Westminster Abbey.

This time, the buzzy colour trend we're referring to (which happens to be quite pretty and flattering on everyone) is cobalt blue. It's a hue we spotted all over the A/W 22 runways of Dion Lee, Stella McCartney, Isabel Marant, and Off-White, to name a few. And lo and behold, we couldn't help but notice that both Zara and COS are brimming with new cobalt pieces, as per usual when there's a new colour trend brewing.

With that, scroll to channel Middleton and shop the best cobalt pieces from Zara, COS, and some of our other go-to brands.

Make like the model, and try wearing cobalt top to toe. 

This will dress up leather trousers in a flash. 

Our obsession with wide-leg trousers continues at COS. 

Lapel-less blazers are trending hard right now. 

This will become one of your most-worn pieces this spring. 

A welcome change from basic white and black tees. 

Skorts? They’re officially back for 2022. 

Wear this without anything underneath for a modern take on the going-out top. 

Give your denim an update with a cobalt shade. 

This dress looks so much more expensive than it is. 

Pleated skirts are so easy to style with everything from racer vests to lightweight knits all the way to oversize shirts.
