Holly Willoughby channels Princess Kate in stunning bouclé blazer

·4-min read

It’s no secret Princess Kate loves a tweed blazer. From the white bouclé Zara jacket she wore in February to classic tweed styles from the likes of Catherine Walker, they’re a staple in her wardrobe.

Often inspired by the Princess of Wales, we weren’t surprised to see a tweed blazer appear in Holly Willoughby’s new spring collection for Marks & Spencer. From ethereal midi dresses to designer-look sandals, the TV star has been showcasing her favourite pieces on Instagram and the latest is a stunning tweed short suit in an icy blue hue.

Designed in a tailored fit, the boucle blazer is fully lined and features welt pockets. The trending piece retails for £79 and is available to shop in sizes 6-24.

Holly dressed down her preppy outfit with a pair of trainers and completed the look with natural glowy makeup and her blonde bob worn in beachy waves. We also love the blazer styled with chic strappy sandals á la M&S - an amazing new season office outfit.

'Soft tailoring is a must-have in my spring wardrobe. Plus, this formal look can be dressed down with trainers, making it perfect for any occasion,' Holly wrote on Instagram.

To shop the full ensemble, the shorts are also still available and cost just £29.50. Cut with the same luxe bouclé fabric in a high-waisted style, they’re finished with a button and zip fastening at the side.
