From structured coats to tailored dresses and casual looks, the duchess of Cambridge is the epitome of effortless elegance. The future queen has always been the center of attention, followed by paparazzi to know what she’s wearing. Whatever she chooses for her royal look, it would be sold out immediately. 

It is common that Royals must follow certain rules and protocols regarding their behavior and their dress code.

Kate Middleton is committed to royal protocols, however sometimes she’s a rule breaker in her outfits. For example, it is prohibited to wear short dresses or skirts that show your knees. Also, it is not acceptable as a Royal to show some skin like off-shoulders, scoop necks… however, Kate was seen in both. Let’s have a look at how Kate Middleton chooses her looks, and what are her favorite pieces?



The Flared Classy Dress

No doubt that the classic and feminine flared dress is one essential piece in every Royal lady wardrobe. Kate Middleton often chooses a classical formal knee-length dress with structured shoulders or modest vintage dresses with a high neck and midi flare skirt. She often pairs any Royal look with stiletto pointed pumps, and a clutch matching the shoes. For a more daring look, she would opt for a printed dress with a waist belt.

The Suit

Kate Middleton would go for the suit skirt more than suit pants. It is actually a typical look for Royals including Queen Elizabeth ll.  The Duchess of Cambridge chooses often blue or red suit skirts, with a peplum design or with long blazer and a classic skirt. Kate may add the royal hat to the suit skirt for a Royal event. It is crucial that Royal ladies wear a pillbox hat, according to Royal protocol.
