Cathy’s out here doing the work of winning hearts and minds and for once, she’s getting a bit cheekily literal about it in her style.
It’s no surprise to see her in a naval-inspired coat here. She has a preference for lightly military-esque outerwear in any case, but she’s known to lean into the look when she’s making an appearance where the style feels appropriate. The heart scarf is a cute little pop of the unexpected; little shot of Valentine’s Day-adjacent style from a Duchess who seems to be getting a bit more comfortable with looks that feel more curated and thoughtfully deployed rather than simply sticking rigidly to one color, one style, one dress all the time. The low-heeled boots are another welcome change of pace. It’s a cute look with more personality than she normally allows.
Also worth noting: She and hubs don’t dress to match anymore. Not worth reading anything into that except a possible loosening up of their image.
