Now that both Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle have resumed working following a summer break, you can expect to see a lot of stellar autumn outfits very soon. However, stellar doesn't have to translate as brand new. Since the Duchess of Cambridge tends to stick to her signature personal style and rely upon classic wardrobe staples she already owns, we have a feeling she'll be bringing back all of her favourite trends from seasons past. In fact, today she stepped out in a checked pleated midi dress that we've seen before.
Another good example? She already resurrected an old, reliable pair of See by Chloé lace-up boots for a function this month—further proof that decent footwear choices do last. She also brings back one specific jacket style every autumn as well as a functional, sporty piece that's very versatile for literally anyone's winter wardrobe, royal or not. Scroll down to shop Middleton's go-to autumnal pieces.
1. Lace-Up Boots
Middleton clearly enjoys the See by Chloé lace-up boots that she has worn for several years now. She almost always styles hers with skinny jeans and a blazer or jacket. These hiking boots have their moments where they are more fashionable, but in general, they've become a kind of staple.

Middleton is a creature of habit when it comes to one specific outfit formula. She loves wearing army-green utility jackets with her flat Penelope Chilvers boots that she has worn for over a decade. It doesn't get any more British than this outfit.
