As I reviewed the photos of the recent tour of Bhutan and India, I realized, with some surprise, that my favorite outfit of Kate’s was actually her least elegant. Don’t get me wrong—she still looked elegant—but the pants-and-vest getup she wore hiking in Bhutan was decidedly her most casual outfit of the trip. Which got me thinking…why was I so drawn to this outfit? Is it because it’s more rare to see the Princess dressed down and casual? Or because it reminded me that she’s a regular person who wears jeans like I do? Probably some of each. Since it’s so nice to see a casual Kate, we’re going to look back at some of her best laid-back looks.
The Bhutan Hiking Outfit
I love the mix of casual and fashionable in this outfit. It’s not the leggings and hoodie many of us would opt for when hiking, but it looks comfortable, rugged, and perfect for the surroundings. It’s also always nice to see Kate wearing tried-and-true favorites we’ve seen her in before, like the vest and boots.

I agree with you! I loved her hiking outfit and seem to gravitate a little more to her casual looks. I dress the same way many days and maybe that very well is the reason.
