When she’s not dressed in bedazzled and beaded ballgowns, lacy long dresses or cape creations, the Princess of Wales is often spotted in cozy and casual crewneck sweaters. Perfect for pairing with smart suit jackets or basic blazers, these informal jumpers give Kate’s wardrobe plenty of polish. Rather than wear a basic camisole or undershirt, the mom of three craves the look of a classic cashmere crew for informal royal duties and daytime engagements.

Here are 9 of Kate Middleton’s Best Casual Crewneck Sweaters:

  1. Massimo Dutti Crewneck Sweater in Aquamarine

A perfect pullover for wet and stormy British weather, this 100% cashmere sweater was worn by the princess for a visit to the University of Derby in October 2020. The sumptuously soft knit has a ribbed crewneck and rolled trim sleeves.

2. Boden Cashmere Crewneck Sweater in Black

First debuted in February 2022 and paired with a Catherine Walker Glen check blazer, the princess has repeated this 100% cashmere sweater with a ribbed crewneck and  hem on two occasions since. Later, she wore the softly textured winter weather must-have with a bright red ‘Spencer’ coat from LK Bennett for a visit to Wales in September 2022. Recently, the 41-year-old paired the layering piece with a sunshine yellow LK Bennett ‘Mya’ tailored jacket in honor of World Mental Health Day.

3. Jonathan Saunders Waffle Knit Sweater

In April 2014 in New Zealand, the princess had some fun with a few local rugby players outfitted in this jumper with an oval print in the colors white, pink and aqua blue. The 100% cotton ‘Deborah’ crewneck sweater was seen on the princess only once thereafter when she wore the sweater with skinny black jeans and Superga sneakers for a visit to sister Pippa Middleton’s house in April 2017.

4. Kitlane Cashmere Crewneck Sweater in Off-White

Constructed of 100% pure cashmere, this super soft sweater from Scottish brand Kitlane first appeared on Her Royal Highness in February 2023. Kate stepped out in the classic knit for a college visit and a tire pulling session. The princess paired the pullover with a textured double-breasted ecru white blazer from Zara. So far, the princess has yet to repeat the cloud colored seasonal staple.

5. JCrew Italian Cashmere Sweater in Heather Midnight

This semifitted 14-gauge heather navy knit was Kate’s sweater of choice for a farm visit in early summer 2017. The then-duchess layered the pullover with a Gap gingham boyfriend shirt and Zara mid-rise biker trousers in khaki. Around the same time, she appeared in the sweater for a black and white family photograph published in May 2017 by British GQ Magazine for a special interview with Prince William.

6. Massimo Dutti Cashmere Crewneck Sweater in Rose Pink

A pale pink sweater was the perfect confectionery contrast with Kate’s moody dark green hued Massimo Dutti wool flannel blazer for a Five Big Questions survey video in November 2020. For the special recording, Kate wore the ultra soft 100% cashmere sweater from the Spanish premium clothing retailer in her apartment home at Kensington Palace.

This cozy and contemporary bright green knit was perfect for an Earthshot event at Kew Gardens in October 2021. For the outing, Kate donned this kelly green short sleeve sweater and paired it with an old throwback — the Erdem Allie coat in grass green. The budget friendly sweater cost less than $30 and featured a classic crewneck, short sleeves and ribbed trim.

8. Jigsaw Cloud Cashmere Crew Jumper in Airforce Blue

For the Royal Tour of Canada in September 2016, the princess wore this fine-gauge 100% cashmere sweater featuring a reverse centreback panel and contrast ottoman-stitch cuffs. Lightweight, cozy and semi-sheer, this top paired perfectly with Kate’s Topshop gingham print button down shirt made in lightweight chiffon.

9. Ralph Lauren Cashmere Knit Crewneck Sweater in Tan

Proving she’s got the art of stealth wealth down to a science, Kate didn’t overtly broadcast her beautiful luxe new sweater last month. Rather, the princess quietly wore her new chic camel top paired with a budget friendly red Zara boucle blazer for a school visit in September 2023. The Italian made semi-fitted sweater costs just under $1000 and has a crew neckline, long sleeves and ribbed trim.
