Kate teamed the top with a pair of baroque pearl drops from British jeweler Annoushka Jewelery and diamond earrings from Kiki McDonough, which she is believed to have worn before.
The mother-of-three, who debuted a lighter hazel hair color in September, opted for a luscious blow-dry, letting her tresses cascade past her shoulders.
She wore shimmery casual makeup, pairing sculpted brows with black eyeliner and a light base for foundation.

She finished off her makeup with a rosy pink lipstick and a touch of peach blush that complemented her rosy complexion.
The Princess of Wales, who is patron of addiction recovery charity The Forward Trust, said addiction is a “serious health condition” and “is not a choice”.
Her message of support for the Taking Action on Addiction campaign comes in the form of a video on the first day of Addiction Awareness Week.
In the video, Kate, 40, appears to be speaking from home as she sits on a couch with framed family photos visible behind her.
She says: “Addiction is a serious mental health condition that can happen to anyone, regardless of age, gender, race or nationality.
The Taking Action on Addiction campaign aims to reframe existing perceptions of addiction, build awareness of the causes and nature of addiction, improve understanding, reduce prejudice and enable more people to get help.

“As a patron of The Forward Trust, I have met many people who have suffered the effects of addiction. Attitudes towards addiction are changing.
“But we are not there yet, we have to get there. Yet the shame of addiction stops people and families from seeking help, and people continue to tragically lose their lives.
Kate, who is mum to George, Charlotte and Louis, said society needed to recognize that “the only way we can help sufferers is to try to understand what led them to addiction”.
She said others should “sympathize with them” and be “compassionate”.
The Princess of Wales added: “So today, during Addiction Awareness Week, I want to share a message of support to those who continue to suffer.
“Please know that addiction is not a choice. No one chooses to become an addict.
“I want you to know that this is also a serious health condition. Please don’t let shame stop you from getting the help you so desperately need.
“The charities leading the Campaign to Take Action Against Addiction, along with others, are working across the country doing life-changing work to help people recover and move on.
“They are here for you. So please ask for help. I know it wasn’t a choice. Recovery is possible.

Mike Trace, chief executive of The Forward Trust, said: “Addiction Awareness Week speaks directly to people affected by addiction, offering support and understanding so more people ask for and get help.”
