Princess Kate is having another retro moment.

First, she surprised us with her plastic headband. And she had us doing double takes with her nude pantyhose. Then she floored us with her Topsy Tail-inspired ‘do.

Now, she’s bringing back the ultimate ’80s fashion trend: shoulder pads!

The delicate Venetian wool coat dress boasts dramatic shoulders and features hand appliqué corded lace spreading up from the hem and cuff.
