Now that we’ve all stopped hyperventilating over the royal wedding, can we discuss Kate Middleton (other known aliases: Princess Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge)? Because I have serious girl crush on her.
When it comes to classic style, Kate Middleton can throw down. She’s got this uber-polished, yet effortless thing going on, doesn’t she? It’s very tight, very controlled (homegirl is not going boho on us), but it’s still all “Oh this? I just threw this on.”
Want to dress like the Princess? Check out how she rolls:
Kate does lots of classic blazers, cardigans and jackets. Trench coats are a staple. Everything has really clean lines, and very tailored to her body. She doesn’t do over-sized; everything is pulled in, but not overstuffed.
Dresses have a bit of swing, but are typically very fitted through the bodice and usually demure in length. She doesn’t do super-short or even remotely mini. Very Royal of her.
Her penchant is to choose a simple, elegant shoe. A low wedge here, a black pump there. Nothing clunky or overly strappy. Almost business-like.
Kate is never over-accessorized; I doubt we’ll ever see her with an armful of bangles. Her choices are dainty and lady-like. When it comes to the hat department, she splurges a little. She doesn’t shy away from a bold hat or fascinator; but that’s standard Brit dress code. (On another note: why can’t we be hat people, Americans?! C’mon; I want to break out my panama hat.)
I love Kate’s style. She always looks elegant and timeless, but it still feels fresh. What do you think? Would you shop her closet?
