The Duchess turned 30 re­cently, so we thought it’d be the right time to re­veal her se­crets to look­ing like a princess...

LOVE LACE Pretty and fem­i­nine, lace is the per­fect look for Kate. At­ten­tion to del­i­cate de­tail is what makes a dif­fer­ence and can make an out­fit trans­form from medi­ocre to per­fect. She of­ten wears dresses with a lace over­lay and, of course, her fa­mous Sarah Bur­ton wed­ding dress fea­tured a

lot of lace too.

IN THE NAVY Kate wears a lot

of navy blue. Dresses, blaz­ers, skirts and shirts—s— Kate knows it is a colour that suits her, looks smart

and can be dressed up or down, de­pend­ing on the oc­ca­sion. GET THE SKINNY Kate loves to wear her

skinny jeans—of­ten with a blazer so she stays sm­mart enough for a royal but still


BUY WISELY Clas­sics are al­ways worth in­vest­ing in, and a trench coat is no ex­cep­tion. Kate’s Burberry trench coat will last a life­time. On a bud­get? A qual­ity high street al­ter­na­tive will work

just as well.

HAT UP Kate knows the power of a great hat and is equally at home with small, del­i­cate styles or larger

show-stop­pers. In or­der to make sure your hat makes just as much of a state­ment, keep your hair loose and sim­ply styled, and match the

colour to your out­fit.

IN THE NUDE An avid Kate fol­lower will know that she of­ten wears her nude pumps with a lot of out­fits. Kate chose a pair from LK Ben­nett, but many stores have now copied

the style. The nude colour and heel height give the il­lu­sion of

end­less legs. PRINTED DRESS Wear­ing dresses with del­i­cate prints make a look more in­ter­est­ing than just

blocks of colour.

AC­CES­SORISE Kate loves hand­bags, favour­ing Longchamp and Bric’s, af­ford­able al­ter­na­tives to lux­ury brands. To get Kate’s style at a slice of the

price, go for any over­sized, neu­tral-coloured bag—it looks

per­fect with any out­fit.
