Unless you live under a rock, you are aware of the devastating news: Prince William is officially off the market. This makes his fiance, Kate Middleton, the luckiest girl in the entire world. (While you cry yourself to sleep at night because your chances of being a princess are over, don’t forget about Prince Harry…there is still some hope).
The moment Princess Diana’s diamond and sapphire ring was planted on Kate’s finger, she not only became a princess-to-be, but also an international style icon. The latter was indicated by how fast the Issa blue wrap dress, the one she wore to announce her engagement, flew off the shelves of retailers.
We aren’t going to lie. We have definitely jumped on the Kate Middleton bandwagon! We love the ease and wear-ability of her clothing choices. She somehow manages to maintain that girl next door charm, while becoming royalty.
The best part of Kate Middleton’s style is, regardless of your body type- petite or plus size- you can get inspired by her. She mostly sticks to classic, solid colored pieces. Kate adds an elegant sophistication to the most plain items: jeans, cardigans, wrap dresses, blazers, and pea coats. Proving the cliche: style is not about what you wear, but how you wear it. Everything looks better when worn with confidence.
The A-line silhouettes that she prefers also add to the simplicity of her appearance. Right, I know what you are thinking…I can’t wear an A-line…it will make me look pregnant. Wrong! As long as the A-line isn’t too poofy, it will look great, and accent your bust (depending on the situation…this could be a good thing)!
I also personally love that Kate rarely wears heels. I hate celebrities who act like their 7 inch stilettos aren’t killing their feet. Kate shows us that wearing ballet flats or simple boots can be graceful and feminine.
