Kate Middleton’s style is scrutinised on a regular basis, dresses she wears sell out in minutes and she is the epitome of a modern princess. Of course, Kate isn’t old but as part of the royal family she dresses much more formally than the average reader of my blog, so I’ve decided to re-create several looks that encapsulate the ‘Kate Middleton’ look, but that are tailored for someone a little younger.
A lot of the clothes on my Get the Look posts are by Topshop, this isn’t because I’m sponsored by them (I wish!) but it’s simply because they have the widest range of clothes that relate to the posts, at reasonable prices and that show clear pictures which are easy to use in my posts!
Here is a classic example of Kate’s ‘blue and nude’ look. Although you won’t be able to find an exact copy of her dress ANYWHERE, as it is well and truly sold out – you could re-create her look using a topshop alternative. This blue ‘skater’ style dress gives the same effect as Kate’s ruched navy number, but makes it a little less formal. This can be teamed with nude nail polish and lipstick, a navy ‘pearl’ ring (with a twist) and some black platforms. You might also want to try the HD brows palette (available online) as it will help you to define your brows and get one step closer to achieving Kate’s polished brows that she is so well-known for.
There are lots of velvet black fishtail dresses that you can buy online, however I thought I would jazz up Kate’s outfit a little by adding metallics in. Kate has teamed her beautiful dress with simple plain silver accessories, but since the dress I chose has gold in – why not include both. The sequined ‘fan’ shaped purse adds an elegant touch to a lovely outfit!

What do you think about Kate’s look? Do you think I’ve re-created her looks well? What would you dress Kate in if you were her stylist?
