Kate has been known for her love of mixing high-street fashion with designers over the years and has recently worn many casual jumpers while on video calls to key workers during the coronavirus lockdown. Casual jumpers are a staple in many women’s wardrobes and the Duchess is a big fan.
Since the lockdown began, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have made appearances via video link from their Norfolk home.
In a recent call about homeschooling, William and Kate were seen in more casual clothing.
The Duchess was seen wearing a crew neck navy and white horizontal striped jumper which had long sleeves.
Susie Hasler, who is an award winning stylist and runs Styled By Susie told the Express.co.uk: “Kate chose a breton top which is a classic staple in every woman’s wardrobe.

“It’s a nod to her simple, chic, Parisian style and shows how she dresses when she’s off duty, at home with the children.”
Kate opted for her relaxed wavy hair style which she wears very often.
Susie added: “Again, it’s perhaps an insight into her more relaxed, casual style at home.”
In the call, Kate opened up about homeschooling her children was challenging and even explained how they homeschooled through the Easter holidays.

Celebrity stylist, Lalla Bronshtein told the Express.co.uk: “Kate always nails that casual chic style. When she’s not wearing designer gowns for formal evening wear, you can find her keeping her everyday looks more comfortable and accessible.
“You can get style inspiration from her casual timeless style looks and her everyday versatile and easy-to-wear outfit ideas.”
“Kate was pictured wearing an elegant striped jumper in her BBC interview. It’s thought to be a “Joostricot jumper”, which is a recycled piece from the King’s Cup launch in May 2019.”
Stepping out at Cutty Sark in Greenwich last May to launch the King’s Cup Regatta, Kate styled the jumper with tailored trousers, heels and a red clutch.

Her navy block heels were from Josie by Emmie London.
When it comes to accessories, the Duchess likes to keep it minimal and wears her hair in her iconic wavy blow dry.
The exact jumper is no longer on sale but there are some new colours and designs available.
Her top in the Joostricot Striped Cotton Blend Sweater retails at around £320.
Lalla added: “Prints are huge right now, but what makes stripes so great is that they’re the most classic prints of all and make a great statement piece on their own.
“Stripy pieces never go out of style and should be a staple in any woman’s wardrobe. Being such timeless pieces, they suit Kate’s simple yet elegant style.”
In other recent video calls Kate has been seen wearing jumpers from Zara.
One plain bright bold orange jumper was a Zara number and she paired it with Catherine Zoraida Fern Leaf Earrings which cost £165.
In another Zoom chat about mental health, Kate was pictured in a green jumper.
Susie says: “Green is a very calming colour in colour psychology and is a wise choice given the topic they were discussing.
“Red or black would have been too aggressive or intimidating, so a green jumper was a great smart/casual and bright choice.”
The Duchess always remains elegant even on casual and relaxed days.
“Kate Middleton remains a firm favourite for women all around the world as a style icon,” said Susie.
