The Duchess of Cambridge is setting a good example for us all this festive season, by wearing past party looks rather than opting for something new.

For her latest royal engagement, an evening at the Royal Variety Performance held at London’s Royal Albert Hall, Kate went all out in shimmering sequins.

She wore an emerald gown by Jenny Packham, a designer that’s a firm favourite of the royal's and which regularly features in her wardrobe. Kate wore her hair in loose, glossy curls, and finished her ensemble with gold Missoma earrings and a matching green box clutch.

The duchess has previously been pictured wearing the dress before, during her 2019 royal tour of Pakistan.

As Kate well knows, rewearing old favourites is one of the best ways to be more sustainable with your wardrobe - increasing the cost per wear of items you already own, instead of constantly buying new.

The duchess is regularly seen doing so; just last week the royal attended a Remembrance Day service in a military-style Alexander McQueen coat, which she previously wore to the same ceremony in 2018. Kate accessorised her ensemble with a black drop-trim hat and a Royal British Legion crystal flower brooch worn over a trio of traditional red poppies, as well as a special pair of pearl drop earrings that previously belonged to Princess Diana.

This year’s Royal Variety Performance marks 100 years of patronage from the reigning monarch, from King George V in 1921 to Queen Elizabeth II today. For the occasion, the Duke of Cambridge also dressed up in a classic velvet tuxedo.
