When Kate Middleton was photographed earlier this week arriving at London’s St. Pancras station in a checked grey coat from Zara, it immediately sold out. It’s hardly surprising – we all know the powers of the Kate Middleton effect. 

Plaid, and featuring a lapel collar and an oversized button it’s totally on-trend. Plus as Kate proved, is the type of coat that goes with everything. In her case, she decided to pair it with a grey roll-neck, slim-fit black jeans, black boots and a Polly Push Lock handbag from Mulberry. Simple and chic, no wonder it sold out within hours.

However, if you’re still hankering after it we’ve found a similar version and it’s even cheaper.

Say hello to this checked tailored version from River Island.

River Island

Priced at only £75 it’s of a similar style with neat lapels and a button placket.

We need this in our lives. NOW.
