The greatest recycled outfits from the Duchess of Cambridge

Ever since we saw Kate Middleton walk down that catwalk in a skimpy tube top and a sheer dress back in 2002, we've been obsessed with her style. Maybe it's because that frock was what caught the eye of Prince William. Either way, it's clear that she knew how to hold herself and wear her clothes with pride. 

And over the years, we've seen her grow into a bona fide fashion icon. Her status as such was announced the moment she stepped out of her bridal car in a full Alexander McQueen gown for her wedding to Prince William in April 2011. 

Not only does the 32-year-old make smart choices with her clothes, which include lots of structured, clean dresses in block colours with minimal detailing, she also knows how to recycle a decent outfit. 

From her recent re-wearing of an elegant dark green Jenny Packham gown in New York, which is on its third outing, to her favourite dressed down ensemble of a blazer, jeans and Breton top, we've taken a look at the Duchess of Cambridge's greatest recycle fashion hits.
