Kate Middleton just sported our favorite holiday hair trend

This winter, we're taking major style cues from the royals (dainty rings and mustard dresses and pleated skirts, oh my!). Add to the list: Kate Middleton's chic velvet bow, which she wore around her ponytail on a visit to a Neuroscience Lab in London last week. 

Yep, Middleton ditched her signature voluminous blowout in order to pair the accessory with her matching burgundy skirt and blazer with black turtleneck, tights and pumps—the latest in a spree of fun accessory choices for Middleton.
