Style Inspiration: Kate Middleton

What’s in the Duchess’ Closet?

The Duchess of Cambridge has become a style icon of our generation. People scrutinize every outfit she wears. Why? Because there hasn’t been one that doesn’t look amazing on her! She’s classy, sophisticated, stylish, and wears clothing that doesn’t go out of style. She’s becoming a ‘classic’ icon similar to Audrey Hepburn or Grace Kelly. Despite having a personal stylist and shopper, she has always had taste in clothing in before marrying Prince William. What influences her amazing wardrobe? More importantly, how can we dress in a similar way? I’ve found a few key pieces that the Duchess seems to go for time and again. 

1. Navy Blazer

2. Fitted Jeans

Jeans are a staple in anyone’s wardrobe. But do we see a lot of denim in the Duchess’? kate-jeans--zActually, we do. However, she has taken a trend and made it her own by adopting fitted, colored jeans into her wardrobe. This is her small nod to current trends mixed with her very classic style. 

3. Nude Heels

4. A Cocktail Dress

Kate knows a good dress! We see her in dresses more often than anything else. Having a Kate+Middleton+Dresses+Skirts+Cocktail+Dress+XRI-kvyX3oUlcocktail dress that can be used multiple times and is neutral in color is nice a addition to any closet. Each time you wear it change up the accessories for a fresh look! 

5. A Striped Shirt

Stripes can be problematic for some people, but not for Kate. Her slender figure allows her to wear almost anything she wants to. 

6. A Button Up

Classic oxford button ups are just that- classic! They come back every season and people fall in love all Kate_Middletonover again. And apparently Kate does too!

  1. She wears lace a lot (wedding dress, nude Alexander McQueen dress with her LK Bennet pumps in the photo you have above, navy Erdem dress during the Canadian tour, white dress during the Australian tour), she’s a fan of tall wedges, and she has lots of fit-and-flare dresscoats.

    Yeah, I guess it’s kind of obvious that I follow her fashion pretty closely. haha. She just has such a phenomenal sense of style!
