Over in the UK, we’re always super excited when it’s that time of year again: tennis season. And of course, the highlight of summer sports has got to be Wimbledon.
This year, a host of well-dressed stars attended the tournament, including Grace Jones, Victoria Beckham, and the beautiful Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton.
For me, Kate’s outfit choices always encapsulate summer style, and her Wimbledon wardrobe was no exception. She was seen in a number of stunning ensembles by designers including Temperley London, Joseph, and Alexander McQueen.
In fact, she’s pictured below wearing a gorgeous Alexander McQueen cable-knit dress from one year ago, which she re-wore at this year’s Wimbledon. You see? She’s clearly an ‘Inexpensive Chic’ girl at heart- even a Princess repeats outfits like the rest of us!
Here are my choices on how to recreate Kate’s classic look:
Kate is known for keeping her silhouette very sleek, so this cute cardigan from House of Fraser will give your outfit a chic and streamlined effect, balancing out the slightly more voluminous skirt from Danish label, Monki. While Kate’s chosen a dress, the style is broken up by the striped pattern, so that’s why a skirt and pullover work equally as well for recreating her look.
The Duchess usually favours a classic court shoe or wedge in nude or black. Nude offers a flattering leg lengthening effect, but you can never go wrong with black. Kate’s pair match her outfit perfectly, and luckily, there are so many great high street replicas like this fab Dorothy Perkins pair.
Finally, to add a little glamour to the outfit, a silk scarf like this one from French Connection is perfect for added texture and detail come summer. Like Kate’s nautical tie, this one will lift your outfit and provide that extra interesting feature.
In this outfit, you’re sure to channel a classic ‘Kate’ look. And who wouldn’t want to look like Royalty?!
