This is part 2 of our polls on Kate Middleton‘s 2015 fashion: coats, gowns, and hats (go here for part 1). Several of you mentioned the dresses/separates not having anything that stood out, but I think this group has higher highs and lower lows than the dresses/separates categories. Both my favorite looks and least favorite looks of the year come from these categories. As with yesterday’s, the categories are organized by color with two polls at the bottom of each category.
1) Alexander McQueen custom pink coat with peter pan collar – Kate first wore this coat while pregnant with Prince George in 2013, repeating it while pregnant with Princess Charlotte at the Commonwealth Service on March 9.
2) Mulberry Cerise Wool Silk Double Crepe Coat – Kate caused a slight ruckus when she debuted this coat while visiting the September 11 Memorial in NYC in December 2014, but her repeat on March 27 for three visits in South London made much more sense.
6) Beulah London Chiara Wool Navy Trapeze Overcoat – Kate wore this coat twice in one month, debuting it on March 13 at the Service of Commemoration and repeating it on March 26 at a memorial at Bath Abbey.
8) Reiss “Emile Sharply Tailored Coat” – I’m running out of things to say about Kate’s blue coat additions. Kate added this one to her ever growing blue coat collection on September 18 at the Rugby World Cup opening.
9) Christopher Kane bespoke blue coat – Another blue coat. This one debuted on October 23 for Kate’s trip to Scotland with Prince William.
11) Jojo Maman Bebe “Cream Princess Line Maternity Coat” – If Kate’s Seraphine Maternity “Natasha” coat and her Max Mara Studio “Villar” coat had a baby, it would be this Jojo Maman Bebe coat she debuted on March 12 at the Downton Abbey set.
12) Alexander McQueen bespoke white coatdress – Kate went to her go-to designer for big events, Alexander McQueen, for her coat for Princess Charlotte’s Christening on July 5. After months of constricting necklines, it was nice to see Kate wear something a bit more open.
13) Reiss “Angel” coat – Kate three-peated this coat for her November 20 visit to North Wales.
14) Catherine Walker bespoke brown coat – Kate bucked her tradition of wearing green coats on St. Patrick’s Day and debuted this brown coat on March 17 for St. Patrick’s Day 2015.
15) “Private dressmaker” black coat – This black coat dates from 2012 and is not a maternity coat, but Kate wore it paired with a maternity dress on March 18 for her Home-Start visit.
16) Alexander McQueen bespoke double-breasted black coat with velvet patchwork – Kate was feeling the velvet, but only patches of it, on November 8 for Remembrance Sunday.
18) Reiss “Rubik Houndstooth Wrap Coat” – In another example of Kate debuting a coat and repeating it in the same month, Kate debuted this houndstooth coat on December 10 during her Action on Addiction center visit before wearing it a second time while out shopping on December 11.
1) Jenny Packham bespoke red tulle gown – Kate went red for China in this beaded tulle gown on October 20 at the State Banquet.
3) Jenny Packham bespoke duck egg gown – The day before rocking the 70s flair, Kate dared to go braless in this sheer gown to the Spectre premiere on October 26.
4) Alexander McQueen bespoke blue lace gown – I may as well not even include this one since we barely got any sort of look at it, but it’s on the list anyway. Kate repeated this lace gown to the Diplomatic Reception on December 8 (she previously wore this gown to the Diplomatic Reception in 2013).
**Kate wore a navy hat to a memorial at Bath Abbey on March 26 but since we only got a fan photo from the side and can barely see it, I’m not including it in the poll.
1) Jane Taylor pink hat – Kate debuted a new pink hat to go with her repeated pink coat for the Commonwealth Service on March 9.
2) Lock & Company green flower hat – It looks like a flying saucer is trying to mate with a poinsettia in this green hat Kate wore on December 25 for Christmas church service.
3) Jane Taylor navy hat with bow – This hat may be the least “flying saucer” of the flying saucer hats but it’s the one that tried to fly away the most. Kate had to hold on to it to keep it from flying off her head in the wind when she wore it on March 13 to the Service of Commemoration.
4) Sylvia Fletcher for Lock & Company “Fairy Tale” hat with flower detail – This must be Kate’s favorite hat since she’s worn it six times since it’s debut in 2012. Number six on the list came on December 27 when she wore it to Sunday after Christmas church service.
5) Lock & Company “Marisabel” white hat – Kate stuck a diaphragm on her head for Trooping the Color on June 13.
6) Jane Taylor bespoke white hat – Kate chose this new white hat with floral detailing for Princess Charlotte’s Christening on July 5.
7) Lock & Company “Betty Boop” brown pillbox hat – If the “Fairy Tale” hat is Kate’s favorite, then this “Betty Boop” hat is a close second. Kate has worn this one five times since it’s debut in 2012 – the fifth being St. Patrick’s Day 2015 on March 17.
8) Black “butterfly” hat – Kate went with this flying saucer/butterfly/veil concoction on November 8 for Remembrance Sunday.
