Style Icon: Kate Middleton
HOW TO DRESS LIKE KATE MIDDLETON
Kate Middleton is known for her elegant and timeless style. What makes Kate Middleton’s style so covetable and achievable, is that she is very classically stylish. She flatters her figure and integrates trendy pieces in a very subtle way. She is known for including a mix of high and low designers to create her looks. Kate is also never afraid to wear her favorite looks more than once by either reinventing them in new ways or repeating them. We are sharing easy tips to recreate these royal worthy looks.
1. Sharp Suiting
While Kate is most well known for her feminine dresses and skirts, in recent years she has added structured blazers and suiting into her wardrobe styling. The structured styles add a polished touch and define her body shape well. For day-to-day looks, she is often seen sporting a blazer with skinny or straight jeans. Take inspiration from these looks for your business casual attire and style with sneakers or loafers for a comfy office look.
For official royal outings, she swaps her jeans for slim fitting neutral trousers or matching suiting. This look will be easily attainable because suiting is a big trend coming up in 2023!
2. Classic and Tailored
Kate is a great example of showing us how we can maximize our wardrobe. She tends to follow a standard approach to her wardrobe separates, by investing in high-quality basic pieces that can be mixed and matched with endless outfit options. She opts for classic prints or solids for her tops and simple, tailored pants, and outerwear for easy pairing. Regardless of which pant width is currently in style, she selects pants with a structured, tailored appearance to flatter her figure. She adds personality to her looks by selecting styles with feminine detailing.
3. Country Chic
Kate never fails to look chic, whether she is dressing up for a formal engagement or stepping out in more casual attire. Time and time again, Kate has turned one of her most humble looks- a printed sweater layered with a stylish and warm jacket into an instantly effortless look. Middleton proves that a warm jacket and great fitting denim make a perfect combo for outdoor events, running errands, or grabbing coffee. Complete this timeless look with stylish, comfortable sneakers and simple hoops, link earrings, or studs.
4. Elegant Event Style
Event dressing is Kate’s time to shine. It’s her dress style that first caught the attention of the fashion world, from her sapphire blue engagement dress, then her wedding dress, and more recently the gold stunner she wore to a James Bond premiere. Regardless of the type of event, she tends to select styles with defined waistlines (achieved by tailoring or stylish belts), elegant fashionable details, longer hemlines, and in beautiful colors. While she will occasionally wear column-style dresses, she is most often in a fit and flare, which flatters almost every body type! Pair your dresses with a clutch, statement sparkle jewelry, and classic neutral wedges or nude pumps and you’ll look like royalty at your next event.
