The Duchess of Cambridge is the queen of dressing for fashion and function.
Since the early days of their relationship, Will and Kate have been spotted in a slew of snowy situations, whether that be bundling up for public appearances or hitting the slopes during one of their royal tours — and no matter the scenario, Kate proves time and time again that she’s got style and warmth down to a science.
For one, she’s a hat girl, almost always opting for a beanie or other fashionable headwear. She’s also consistently on-trend, whether she’s wearing a puffer coat, tartan accessories, or her beloved fair-isle sweaters.
Her ski style is particularly notable, especially now that après ski is having a moment on the runways and IRL. Everyone, it seems, wants to dress the part — even if it’s just to sip hot cocoa in the lodge. (Who wouldn’t, after all, want to feel as cozy as possible at all times?)
Here, Kate’s best ski and winter fashion moments to inspire your next trip to the mountains ... or, you know, to brunch.

For a funkier fashion moment on that same trip in 2018, Kate opted for a gray knit beanie with a fur pom on top, which she wore to a Bandy hockey match in Stockholm, Sweden.
Back in 2008, Kate was spotted hitting the slopes wearing a chic white puffer jacket with a high neck.
Fair Isle Fashionable
Kate has worn her beloved fair-isle sweater many times over the years, most recently to read a bedtime story for the BBC in honor of Children’s Mental Health Week.
Kate always has statement-making accessories, and this long red tartan scarf is no exception. Although she paired it here with a red coat and black gloves, it would also go seamlessly with a ski outfit.
Kate clearly loves her headwear, like this massive fur hat she paired with fur-adorned gloves and a blue coat in Oslo in 2018.
Sure, Kate wore this red cable-knit sweater to be the most stylish person of all time to play sports, but this sweater is a perfect layering piece for a day on the mountains, too.
