Kate Middleton has been serving up monochrome magic all week long. First, it was a pink-on-pink look that consisted of a bubblegum pink coat and a matching Boden sweater that made a convincing case for tonal dressing, and now, it's her all-camel look that proves that the traditional fall hue is very much here to stay for spring.

On March 18, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited an ambulance station in Newham, east London, where they showed their support for the emergency staffers working the COVID-19 frontlines. Prince William wore an all-blue look, including a longline blue trench layered over a blue sweater-and-button-up combo. Middleton, who's been playing favorites with one-tone dressing, opted for a calf-grazing camel coat from Massimo Dutti and a matching turtleneck from one of her go-to brands, Reiss. Suede camel Jimmy Choo pumps grounded the look.

The fact that the duchess has yet again worn monochrome is one noteworthy thing about her latest outfit of choice, but the real kicker is that the gorgeous knit that was peeking out from underneath her camel coat is actually still in stock at Nordstrom. Gasp, we know! 

If you follow Middleton's style, you'll know that she regularly wears pieces from British fashion brand Reiss, like this white coat or this blue dress — but the catch is that they're usually pieces from years past that are no longer being sold by the label. That's why we were so surprised to see the $180 turtleneck still fully in stock at Nordstrom, and at the time of writing, 79 people were viewing it. Once word gets out though and more eyes land on it, it's sure to fly off the shelves.

Middleton's camel turtleneck is the ideal transition piece for spring. Made from a yarn-blend, the Reiss knit is warm enough to withstand the morning chill, but not so warm that you'll sweat once it heats up in the afternoon. It's also incredibly sleek, which means it can be worn on its own or underneath a coat á la Middleton.
