You know the summer is over when Kate Middleton trades her trusty nude LK Bennett pumps and nude tights for their black counterparts.

The Duchess of Cambridge attended the Middle Temple Treasury in London yesterday, looking regal and gorgeous in a very autumnal berry coloured skirt suit by French brand Paule Ka.

We would have thought that she’d wear a British designer for her first public appearance since her and William’s tour of South East Asia, but we have no complaints with this look.

We’re looking forward to seeing how her style translates into the autumn/winter season and hope there will be some sartorial surprises in there along with the predictable choices too.
