The Princess of Wales may not have stepped out in a pair of Ugg boots like tons of other celebrities, but she did raise the suede boot standard.
On December 25, Kate Middleton, along with her husband and kids, attended the Christmas Day service at the Church of St. Mary Magdalene in Norfolk. As usual, the Princess looked festive in an olive green coat dress and hat, along with coordinating accessories. She matched her brown clutch to her brown gloves, which of course, matched her (drumroll, please!) chocolate brown suede boots.

Suede boots aren’t out of the norm this time of year. In fact, celebrities are wearing them non-stop these days. Ugg boots have been one of the hottest shoes this season and have been seen on Gigi Hadid, Elsa Hosk, and Keke Palmer, just to name a few. Other celebrities, though, have been in favor of wearing suede in a different way. Chrissy Teigen and Anne Hathaway were both recently spotted wearing slouchy heeled boots in the soft-looking material.
Reasons why you should grab a pair like Kate’s instead? They’re the perfect sweet spot between high heel boots and Uggs. The block heels add a little bit of height and dress up the entire look and the natural shape is a bit more structured, giving the boots a more formal vibe. Plus, the color is a timeless neutral that will never go out of style.
We can always count on Kate for new style inspo, and after seeing her wear these suede ones, we’re finally ready to give the boot (pun intended) to our old shoes and grab a similar pair.
