She is the girl we would all love to be. Known for her sense of style, she wore ‘that’ dress by Roland Mouret, she wore Alexander McQueen to her wedding. This girl has one of the most flattering wardrobes in the world… Oh and of course she is married to the future King of England!
The Duchess of Cambridge is pretty much an ambassador for British Fashion Designers, with some of her favourite looks coming from Jenny Packham, Alice Temperley, Alexander McQueen, and Amanda Wakeley, to name but a few. She is no stranger to the High Street either, often pictured in Reiss, Hobbs, and Whistles.
This also goes for her footwear. She may have some of the world’s best fashion designers falling over themselves (we’ll not mention the Kardashians) to dress her but she is also very humble with her footwear choices. Over the summer season Kate was spotted in her £195 L.K. Bennett Sledge Court Shoe Pumps on many an occasion, she also fond of her knee high boots that she is often pictured in by Weitzman from Russell & Bromley as are her favourite navy blue wedges. If you want to copy Kate’s shoe style but find the £195 a bit too pricey then try this similar pair from Fabio Rusconi at Miinto.
Her sister Pippa shares a lot of her style choices too, often wearing outfits from some of Kate’s favourite designers. But you don’t need to be a Princess or Lady in Waiting to capture Kate and Pippa’s style, just by teaming up a few staple pieces you will soon find it is very easy style to wear. Recent surveys show that everybody is desperate to get a piece of Kate Middleton’s wardrobe, one example was in summer 2012 she was pictured in a pair of coral skinny jeans, sales of a similar pair by George at Asda, rose by 88%.
She obviously knows her own style and her own fashion sense. More often than not she is spotted mixing high street with a high profile designer piece.Kate allegedly doesn’t use a stylist and chooses her own outfits instead, she uses accessories well and always follows the Golden Rule of less is more. One style trick she uses is by securing a plain coat by wrapping a large belt around the middle, giving the outfit a new dimension.
So without a stylist and managing to avoid any major fashion faux pas on the way, this is why in our eyes Kate Middleton is the definitely the ultimate British fashion icon, we can’t wait to watch her journey from style Princess to Fashion Queen.
