Kate Middleton Has Been Wearing These Brown Boots For Over a Decade — and Now We Know Why
One thing we know to be true: Kate Middleton is a thrify shopper. Beyond loving her favourite high street stores like Zara and Topshop, the savvy duchess also saves her old items, waiting for the perfect moment to bring pieces back out.
Even during her well-documented tour in India and Bhutan, Kate wore a number of her favourite items, from royal-approved Ray-Bans to trusty Sebago loafers. But the one item we were thrilled to see she packed? A pair of tasselled boots from Penelope Chilvers.
The knee-high, embellished Long Tassel Boots were perfectly on-trend for 2016, but the shocker is she's owned them for years. Kate was sporting those babies as far back as August 2005 for the Festival of British Eventing at Gatcombe Park in England, and perhaps the key to why they've lasted so long lies in how they're made. Watch a video from the designer, who talks about the process and all that goes into a single pair. Then, check out how Kate's worn these boots throughout the years.
