The Duchess of Cambridge can sell...anything she wears! She showed off her sense of style - and sporting skills - yesterday in a visit to the Olympic Park in Stratford, East London, the site of the London Olympics to be held this summer.
Middleton arrived at the site looking fashionable in skin-tight coral jeans, dressed up by a blazer and Olympic scarf. She quickly changed into a hoodie and Adidas tennis shoes, leaving on her coral jeans, to pick up a hockey stick and take a few swings. The duchess sent the ball straight into the net. Score on two fronts! She impressed fellow field hockey players, and the world watching last night's newscasts, with her athletic skills. She also sparked the sale of coral jeans in England.
The Huffington Post reported (with information supplied by the Daily Express) that sales of 14-pound colored denim jeans at Asda, a British clothing store, rose by a whopping 88 percent in one day. Fiona Lambert, a brand director for Asda's George clothing line, projects the trend will continue to soar. “Wearing bright colours lifts us all, and now that we have the royal seal of approval for colored denim from Kate Middleton, we know this is going to be the hot trend this summer.”
If you want to nab the real deal, Middleton's jeans were made by JBrand and cost $169. Will you be on the hunt for skinny jeans in the "color of the season"?
