Fall really is in swing if one is to go by Kate Middleton's latest outfit. The Duchess of Cambridge stepped out for an engagement today in shades of khaki green and plum, apropos for the cooling October weather.

She looked equal parts chic and cozy in a knit sweater by Warehouse (opens in new tab), which was accented with a scalloped neckline and sleeves; wide-leg culottes by the British brand Jigsaw (opens in new tab), one of the labels that collaborated with Meghan Markle on The Smart Set (opens in new tab); fringed, leather eggplant pumps from Tod's (opens in new tab); and a quilted Chanel logo handbag—the cherry on top.

The burgundy Chanel accessory isn't new to Kate's wardrobe. The royal has previously worn it (with those same Tod's heels) during her trip to Paris in 2017 and during an appearance in Sweden in January 2018. Albeit rare, the handbag is a chic touch to the duchess's outfits whenever she wears it.
