Kate Middleton wore a pair of navy blue sailor pants by J.Crew to a nautical-themed event in 2019.
The Princess of Wales wore the sailor pants to the 1851 Trust’s final Roadshow at the Docklands Sailing and Watersports Centre in London.
To date, it’s the only time we’ve seen the Princess wear the blue cropped trousers—surely she’ll bring them back for a water-adjacent activity in the future?
About Kate’s J.Crew Sailor Pants:
Crafted in a deep navy hue, the ‘sailor pants’ offer a sophisticated alternative to the classic black. The slight ‘kick flare’ cut is universally flattering.
The Sailor Pants’ standout feature is the gold button detailing at the waist, adding a touch of military-inspired flair.
The front slit pockets, enhanced by the buttoned tabs, merge functionality with fashion.
The ‘sailor pants’ are crafted from a stretch-wool blend fabric, which is specially designed so the trousers will keep their shape.
Where to buy the Sailor Pants:
Sadly, J.Crew no longer stock the trousers. They were sold out prior to Kate wearing them. I suggest trying eBay.
