Kate Middleton looked ready to set sail when she showed up in the city of Plymouth to support the 1851 Trust, a charity that uses sailing and the maritime industry to inspire children in sports, education and technology.

The Duchess of Cambridge stepped out in a navy and white striped jumper paired with flattering crisp white shorts with elegant gold button details. While bright white shorts aren’t always easy to put on, leave it up to Kate to mold a silhouette that looked perfect for the occasion. She completed her daytime look with simple gold earrings and her favorite Superga sneakers — two styling choices that scored big in our book.
