Duchess Kate is so sophisticated in red blazer for North Wales visit

The royal dressed sharply in the trouser-blazer combo

Fresh from her visit to London's Cutty Sark on Tuesday with Prince William, the Duchess of Cambridge stepped out in another stylish outfit alongside her husband on Wednesday. Kate opted for a very chic outfit of a red double-breasted blazer by the label Philosophy with a black polo-neck, skinny jeans and black boots for the royal couples' trip to North Wales, during which they met people in the region who are working together to protect the natural local environment. The crimson shade was so flattering on the Duchess and her outfit was certainly practical for the day's events. The royal accessorised with some pretty drop earrings and the Midi Mayfair bag by Aspinal of London in black croc, which retails at £495. 

During the couples' visit to North Wales they visited the Caernarfon Coastguard Search and Rescue Helicopter Base and viewed the Coastguard’s new Sikorsky S92 helicopters, meeting members of the search and rescue team. The royals then joined a discussion with crewmembers about the mental health challenges that come from working as first responders. William and Kate also visited local business Halen Môn Anglesey Sea Salt and Newborough Beach.

The mum-of-three went for a pretty-yet-natural beauty look, wearing her hair in a simple ponytail. Makeup-wise, the Duchess accentuated her eyes with a bold sweep of eyeliner and mascara, with a touch of blush on her cheeks and a natural lip shade.

Later, Kate changed her jacket from the red blazer to a more practical coat for a walk on the beach. She also swapped her black boots for some brown flat boots.

The Duchess looked to be having a great time as she met locals on the visit and she definitely chose the right outfits for the occasion. We're still obsessing over her cool nautical look from the previous day, where she wore some sailor-inspired trousers by L.K Bennett and a navy and white Breton long-sleeved top. Wonder what the royal will wear next?
