Top 12 Kate Middleton looks

Ever since Kate Middleton (or, more correctly, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge) came onto the scene, she has garnered a following among her doting public for her fresh, modern fashion sense, injecting new life into the traditional British Royal Family dress code. She always appears chic and immaculate, from slickly tailored tweed skirt suits and head turning hats to dramatic floor sweeping gowns. If you aspire to recreate Kate's style, here are our top 12 Kate Middleton looks.

A whiter shade of pale

There's not many people that can pull off head-to-toe white tastefully but Kate looks a paragon of virtue in this pure white ensemble with a flirty above the knee skirt that shows off her shapely pins and an edgy piece of headgear.

Pretty pastels

Pastels have made a come back this season and Kate wears the trend effortlessly in a neatly tailored dress with subtle embroidered detailing (while perfectly matching her mother-in-law Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall).

Nod to nudes

This feminine lace dress in nude with fascinator to match perfectly defines Kate's flawless figure and strikes the perfect balance between demure and fashion forward.

Pretty in pink

From baby blue to pastel pink, we dig Kate's choice of angled hat and no frills fitted pink dress with a pleated skirt.

In the country

Even when she's out in the countryside, her choice of outfit is carefully thought out in earthy tones. And she somehow succeeds in making a pair of wellington boots look dainty and feminine when worn with svelte skinny jeans.

Lady in red

To mark the Golden Jubilee celebrations, the duchess stepped out to greet her royal subjects in a dramatic red ensemble with an eye catching sculptural hat embellished with flowers that scored highly in the fashion stakes.

Ethnic chic

Kate pays close attention to the details in her wardrobe and we like the ethnic-style turquoise, gold and yellow beading on the neck that adds a playful pop of colour and detail to an otherwise understated dress.

Midnight glamour

From day time chic to sultry after hours, Kate takes it up a notch for the evening in a strapless all black floor length gown and a heavy dose of sparkle.

The dress coat

This structured wool dress coat with a big 50s style skirt packs a punch especially when worn with a boxy hat and a killer pair of spiky black stilettos.

Grecian goddess

Kate opts for a more romantic, feminine look in this dreamy, Grecian-style silk gown cinched at the waist with a ribbon. The one shoulder style shows off her enviable razor sharp collar bones.

Nautical lines

Kate plays the dutiful role as wife to the Duke of Cambridge in this no nonsense nautical inspired blouse and pencil skirt with a military edge.

The wedding dress

And last but not least, who can forget the fabulous wedding gown she wore to march down the aisle in Westminster Abbey, designed by fashion genius Sarah Burton. The long train and structured lace bodice were nothing short of exquisite.
