Kate Middleton doesn’t wear sneakers for public appearances all that often, but when she does, it’s noteworthy. Her sneaker outfits are a reliably good source of styling inspiration, as they’re always polished. If your style is classic, you can’t go wrong with copying Kate Middleton.
While visiting a school today in the UK, Middleton wore an outfit that, in addition to being classic, had a French girl twist. That’s thanks to the tweed blazer she opted to wear with it (p.s. It’s from Zara!). Middleton wore the white blazer over a white T-shirt, paired with cropped blue trousers and sneakers by one of her (and French girls’) favorite brands—Veja.
If I had to guess I’d say that at least 50% of French women own some sort of tweed blazer or jacket, as they make everything look chicer (sneakers included) and they give off that Chanel vibe we all know and love. With that, scroll to shop Middleton’s French girl-inspired look, as well as tweed blazers and jackets for your own sneaker outfits.
