Whilst straight leg, low-rise and super baggy styles have all had their moment in 2023, the oft-forgotten bootcut jean seems to have fallen off the fashion radar. Once a mainstay in every It girl’s wardrobe in the nineties and noughties, who would have thought it would be Catherine, Princess of Wales bringing the style back on to our radar in 2023 with a very royal twist.
Styling her dark-wash cropped bootcut denim with a quintessentially British quilted coat from UK heritage brand, Burberry, Kate Middleton also layered a thick navy turtleneck underneath her plaid-printed jacket. As Middleton was attending an event in Moray, Scotland, she called upon a reliable chunky Chelsea boot to protect her from the Scottish elements. Proving she’s a devoted fan, just two days ago the Princess was spotted styling the same pair of Chelsea boots from British brand Reiss. Styling a look reminiscent of Princess Anne circa 1978, the Princess completed her outfit with a poppy badge as a nod to the forthcoming Remembrance Day.
