Purple may be the color of royalty, but what's more noble than the hue of Duchess Catherine
's sweater? The fact that she's already been photographed wearing it.
On a shopping trip to a Wilkinson home goods store Monday, Kate (once again
) recycled the regal sweater, pairing it with a patterned scarf and black flats.
And it was déjá vu: She was spotted
wearing a nearly identical ensemble Aug. 1, when she was leaving a Tesco supermarket in North Wales. The only difference: The color of her skinny jeans, which were a darker denim the second time around.
This low-key look wasn't the first time she recycled one of her favorite fashions from her wardrobe. Just last month
, she re-wore a green silk Diane von Furstenberg dress for a yacht party – the same number she rocked at an event in L.A.
The next day, she once again kept her look low-maintenance when she stepped out in a cream-colored coat for Zara Phillips's wedding
– the same outerwear she sported to Laura Parker Bowles's wedding in 2006.
