Even with the bold colors, rich fabrics and ornate designs that made up the London Olympics Opening Ceremony, Kate Middleton scored major style points (as far as I’m concerned) when she stepped out in an icey blue Christopher Kane coatdress. The belted ensemble, with its classy blue hue, was conservative-chic meets contemporary. I need one in my closet stat.
As a lover of narrow cuts and cinched waists (designs which are popular with the Duchess), I love incorporating elements from Kate’s classic look into my daily fashion rotation. My selections may not always be designer (for the most part they’re not), but I make a conscious effort to work with pieces that make sense and can capture that Kate Middleton “je ne sais quoi.”
Whether she is fancying a fashion remix or sporting a never-seen-before trend, Kate Middleton is the epitome of a style icon. She has even brought sexy back by way of long sleeve dresses. A coatdress is next on my “must have” list.
