It’s only been a few days since Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, arrived wearing that luscious blue lace dress by Canada’s own Erdem. But since stepping foot on Canadian soil, Middleton has paired her snap-worthy looks with a few closet favourites. Who would have thought that Kate would be a (gasp) fashion repeater! We take a look at Kate’s favourite go-to pieces that make up her wardrobe essentials.
In a matter of only a few day in Canada, Middleton has already been spotted wearing two easy jersey dresses by Issa London. First, a bird-printed frock for a casual dinner on the first day of her trip and a second while watching the fireworks display on July 1. The minimal styles nod to Middleton’s favour towards light, airy dresses that have more print and design detail over embellishment and jewels.
Kate was spotted pairing her neutral-hued ‘Andie’ pumps by LK Bennett with two Erdem dresses during the first few days of her trip. The heels added a sophisticated quality to the outfits, making them the perfect versatile staple in the Duchess’s suitcase. The taupe colour of the shoes allows them to be easily lent to a variety of different looks, making them a covetable staple for any closet.
This sleek clutch by Anya Hindmarch was first seen when the Duchess met the Obama’s at the White House in May. The fashion accessory made a return appearance at an evening event on Parliament Hill while the couple celebrated Canada Day. The noir clutch was flawlessly paired with her Issa London violet dress and classic black heels by Prada.
One of Kate’s most beloved possessions is a beautiful gold pendent gifted to her from Camilla Parker Bowles, Duchess of Cornwall. The beautiful bijoux acts as the perfect finish to all of Kate’s ensembles. Engraved with the letter C for Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge is often seen switching the charm from a necklace to a bracelet.
Links of London is a go-to for Kate as she is often seen wearing one of two pairs from the brand: the ‘Effervescence Bubble Stiletto’ or the ‘Hope’ white topaz earrings. The delicacy and lavishness of both add to their appeal, making them a stunning option for the Duchess who often wears traditional frocks with a soft splash of bling.
