Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge (or as we formerly knew her, Kate Middleton), was spotted playing field hockey with the GB Hockey Team at Riverside Arena in Olympic Park in London earlier this morning. While we're rarely disappointed in the future queen's fashion choices, we were extremely psyched (and a little surprised) that she opted for a pair of faded red skinny jeans to play a game of pickup.
We're no stranger to the fact that colored denim is the must-have mainstream wardrobe staple of the season but if you were hesitant to the trend before, we suggest investing in a pair in chic Nantucket red. Middleton styled her ankle-grazing jeans with a tailored navy school boy blazer and a gray hooded sweatshirt and sneakers. Both were safe choices and both looked awesome.
Don't know where to find the perfect pair? Here are some of our suggestions:
