In lieu of in-person public appearances, Kate Middleton has been “out and about” on Zoom, lending support to students, teachers, health care workers, and the like.

Over the weekend, Middleton and husband, Prince William, took to a video conference during Volunteer Week to thank all who have been helping the country (and the world) during the COVID-19 pandemic. The pair have been nailing it when it comes to casual at-home style that’s still appropriate for work (read: Zoom calls) and this last look was no exception to the rule.

For the occasion, Prince William chose a classic blue button-down shirt and Middleton slipped into a bright white eyelet button-down from M.i.h Jeans and gold hoop earrings from Accessorize that retail for only $7 on the brand's website. She has actually been spotted in that very shirt before, choosing to wear it back in May of 2019 for an event at the Chelsea Flower Show.

While Middleton’s bottom half is not visible on screen this time around, last time she stepped out in the shirt, she styled it with a pair of Massimo Dutti khaki culottes and low-top white Supergas. The earrings, as well, have been sported in a previous outing, first viewed in March 2020 when Middleton and Prince William visited the Museum of Literature during their royal tour of Ireland.

While a classic button-down is a perfect go-to for all your Zoom call needs as you adjust to working from home, there’s something perfectly seasonal about Middleton’s eyelet choice. It’s simply made for transitional weather, with a Spring floral pattern, breezy embroidered weave, but covers up more than a summery tank might instead.

Ahead, shop Middleton’s exact eyelet top as well as other alternatives, just in time for summer.
