Kate Middleton has pulled her recycled style trick again, reworking the same Emilia Wickstead coat that she wore for last year's St Patrick's Day festivities for an official military parade in Aldershot yesterday. And why not? The chic topper is the perfect shade of emerald to celebrate the luck of the Irish, and it snugly accommodates her just-visible baby bump. Kate made it fresh by switching her base colour from chocolate to black, layered her trusty overcoat over opaques, a fine-knit turtleneck, gloves and topped off the look with a chic felt headpiece and festive lapel sprig. Step inside to see it now, and then.
We've missed you Kate! It's been a little since we've seen the Duchess out and about, but she's made up for her absence in spades — appearing twice in as many days. Yesterday we saw her in this nifty little burgundy Paule Ka skirt suit for an appearance with Will in central London, and his morning we've been treated to yet another chic ensemble from HRH, with Kate stepping out for the official launch of the National Football Centre in Burton-upon-Trent in this super-sophisticated khaki Reiss coat. Both are classically tailored pieces, but it's her on-trend palette that really impressed us. Ox-blood red and olive make a fabulous, new-season colour combo — and whilst it might feel cold-weather appropriate in Kate's heavy woolens, we think this is still well worth keeping on file for A/W 2013.

While Prince William and Kate Middleton's Diamond Jubilee tour has come to an end, it certainly provided us with nine days of fun, flirty fashion. We're looking at you, Kate. The royal couple first made stops in Singapore and Kuala Lumpur, but it was the last leg of the trip (read: the Solomon Islands and Tuvalu) that brought on some serious island style. And today's parting look — a floral number from Dannii Minogue's Project D label — proved, once more, that the Duchess of Cambridge fully embraced breezy tropical prints, bright hues, and a general laid-back dressing M.O. As we await our next Kate Middleton sighting, let's recap the best (and most colourful) ensembles of the bunch. Inside, you'll find a sweet lemon eyelet dress, a locally made pink batik-print strapless dress, a ladylike geometric-print Jonathan Saunders number, and a bold yellow button-front Jaeger dress to start. These, plus more, when you click through for an all-angles look at Kate's style tour de force.

It's only day one of Prince William and Kate Middleton's nine-day Diamond Jubilee tour, and we're already loving what we see from the Duchess of Cambridge. Spotted in Singapore, our favourite royal next door delivered two refreshing — and easy to emulate — ways to wear floral prints. Kate first stepped out in a bespoke kimono-inspired Jenny Packham creation, which featured sweet hand-painted orchids along the bodice and skirt. Then, she punched up the vibrancy factor tenfold with one of Prabal Gurung's seriously cool Spring '12 sheaths. Sure, the purple-and-cream Rorschach pattern may be a little bit louder, but her minimalist approach on the accessory front (read: black Prada pumps and a black clutch) kept the ensemble sleek and sophisticated. We're certainly in for another tour de force in Kate Middleton styling, so click through for an all-angles look now. Then, be sure to check back soon for more outfits.
In what we can safely say is the most sophisticated play on the slit-dress trend, Kate Middleton lit up Claridge’s hotel in London for the Thirty Club dinner last night. If like us you were caught up in the world of Met Gala fashion, then you might have missed the Duchess of Cambridge's showstopping arrival in the creamy Roland Mouret gown from the A/W '09 line. Flashing just a little leg, Kate played off the gown's skin-revealing slit with ease and confidence, and accessorised its creamy white hue with her shimmering clutch and metallic Jimmy Choos. It may just be one of our favourite to date looks from the Duchess. Click on to see her utterly chic arrival from every angle.
After checking out the birthday girl's top 30 looks yesterday, we're newly inspired by Kate Middleton's unique mix of everyday sophistication and princess-perfect polish. If you want to add some royally approved additons to your wardrobe we've got Kate's hit-list: a cap-sleeved frock, a beautiful box clutch, and a festive fascinator. So, as our royal duty to our faithful fashion constituents (you!), we've come up with a few quick tips on how to get Kate's regal-ready style.
Today is quite the day for stylish celebrations! Not only are we celebrating news of Beyoncé giving birth to baby girl Blue Ivy Carter, but it's also Kate Middleton's 30th birthday. The Duchess of Cambridge has won the world over with her elegant sense of style, breathing fresh life into the British high street and high end designers along the way. Whether she's going glam for the red carpet in gowns by Alexander McQueen, Amanda Wakeley, Jenny Packham or (most recently) Alice Temperley, or donning chain store bargains from Topshop, Zara or Whistles, Kate maintains her understated and ladylike style signature. Oh, and it doesn't hurt that she'll go down in history at the decade's best-dressed bride. In honour of HRH's reliably chic, always elegant and perfectly put-together style CV, we've collated Kate's 30 best looks. Fashion royalty, indeed.
If it were possible, Kate Middleton's locks are looking more lustrous and glossy than ever. She and Prince William attended a Gary Barlow Concert at the Royal Albert Hall where she sported her signature bouncy blow-dry teamed with a natural makeup look with a hint of pink blush. Even if you feel like you may lack in length or thickness, you can still emulate her high-shine hair with our top five glossing serums. Check out her look from all angles, then get shopping!
Kate Middleton's after-hours wardrobe continually impresses us. HRH's liking for full length, glamorous gowns in simple and elegant silhouettes means she never puts a foot wrong when it comes to black tie events. Kate stepped out last night with Prince William for a dinner in aid of the National Memorial Arboretum Appeal at St James's Palace in London, opting for an asymmetrical number from her current designer of choice Jenny Packham. Whilst we appreciate the Grecian appeal of this glam gown, it's really Kate's Art Deco diamond jewellery that caught our eye. The modern-yet-romantic drop earrings and coordinating bracelet set off her oyster hued dress perfectly. Don't have a stash of royal jewels to raid like Kate? Don't worry! We've found some beautiful bling that echo the Duchess' dazzlers via ShopStyle!
