The Duchess of Cambridge is inspiring our summer dressing for the second time this week, this time with the perfect seasonal suit.

Kate made an appearance at Sandwell Aquatics Centre to watch the Commonwealth Games, accompanied by her husband the Duke of Cambridge and their daughter Princess Charlotte, wearing an elegant Alexander McQueen suit with a white tank top and Camilla Elphick pumps.

Kate has always been an advocate for re-wearing and this outing was no different; she previously wore the pumps to the polo earlier this summer, while the Alexander McQueen suit made an appearance during her royal tour of Jamaica in March, and then again on Windrush Day in June.

It's also not the first time we've seen that particular jewellery: she first wore the Mappin & Webb 'Empress' earrings and necklace at Princess Charlotte's Christening – a fitting tribute for her daughter's first solo public engagement with her parents.

Over the weekend the royal inspired our summer daywear wardrobes, in a nautical-inspired look for a visit to Sail Grand Prix in Plymouth.

Kate opted for a classic Breton striped top, worn with tailored white Holland Cooper shorts, gold hoops, and her favourite white Superga trainers. Her style is a constant reminder of how relying on capsule classics and finding your own signature style is key to achieving a chic wardrobe.

It's little wonder she opts to rewear pieces from her wardrobe so regularly: timeless classics never go out of style.
