When we're flipping pancakes, it's usually a Sunday morning, and we're wearing a pair of super soft pajamas. But when Kate Middleton does it? Well, she looks much more chic than we do.

Earlier this week, the Princess broke out a pair of wide-leg pants as she flipped pancakes and talked with residents at the Oxford House Nursing Home. And while her pancake skills might need some work, her outfit was a different story. She wore navy pants with a matching long-sleeve turtleneck shirt, block-heel pumps, a chunky buckle belt, and a camel coat.

Kate's love for certain styles runs strong — turtleneck dresses and Superga sneakers, to name a few — and certainly, wide-leg pants, probably because you can wear them any day of the week.

Shop Navy Wide-Leg Pants Inspired by Kate Middleton:

Kate isn't the latest celeb to axe skinny styles: Jennifer Lopez has worn baggy pants to brunch with stilettos and Sarah Jessica Parker's character Carrie Bradshaw has worn them on set in NYC and paired them with a floor-length coat. Clearly, they're a very versatile piece.

For all we know, Kate's pants might have been custom tailored, but these Perfect Pants from Spanx are a super close dupe with their relaxed silhouette and rich navy color. They have shaping technology and stretchy fabric that's both smoothing and comfy, and they have a barely-there gray pinstripe that's perfect for a meeting with your boss. Oh, and Oprah Winfrey once called The Perfect Pants her "favorite." Convinced yet?
