HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Kate Middleton!
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.
