Keep it casual like Kate in a track jacket by PlayBrave
The Duchess of Cambridge arrived at the National Tennis Centre in London this week which is of course part of her role as patron of the Lawn Tennis Association.
It might be a sporting event, but the usual dressy Duchess still took us by surprise in her unusual jogger/leggings by Monreal London and very quirky Nike Air VaporMax trainers.
Her jacket however was a more subtle affair, being all black with a subtle logo which she'd actually covered up with a poppy. It's by PlayBrave and it was created to be the perfect piece whether you're playing competitively or just lounging around.

Founded in 1869, rules state that non-members may only play on the court if directly invited ?by another member - something that William and Kate appear to have bypassed.?
The source added: 'Unfortunately some patrons feel Charlotte shouldn't be allowed to play there.?
'Club rules are usually very rigid, and they don't see why exceptions should be made, even if they happen to be royal.'
MailOnline has contacted Kensington Palace for a comment.
Charlotte's interest in the sport comes as no surprise with her mother being?a keen tennis fan and patron of the London Tennis Association, having taken over the post from the Queen.
