Kate Middleton Shines in Gap Pants

DesignTighe Flatley, Gap Inc. bloggerComment

What adds a jolt of sunshine to a rainy day of travel? Patterned pants.

At least that's what fashion icon Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, seems to think. She recently appeared wearing Gap Bi-stretch Skinny Ankle Pants to a public appearance at a UK "undercover rainforest", after a trip to the Isles of Sicily was postponed due to weather. (It's clear she was still channeling those Mediterranean vibes with the pattern choice here.) 

The mid-rise pants (with a similar U.S. version available here) are not the first time that the Duchess of Cambridge has worn a Gap Inc. brand to a public appearance. Earlier this year, Kate Middleton wore a printed Banana Republic skirt and swoons ensued.

See how HRH the Duchess of Cambridge styled the pattern-happy pants below:
