Loving Kate Middleton’s military look? The Duchess of Cambridge is a big fan of classic military detailing and timeless shapes – so much so that she’s just been snapped in the same Reiss coat that she first wore two years ago. Want to steal her style? Here are 7 tips for stealing Kate Middleton’s military style …
1 Keep It Classic
2 Pick up Accessories
Accessories are the perfect way to keep your look modern and on trend, even with the most classic outfits. Steal Kate’s style by opting for a modern belt around a trench – she opted for a thick, black snakeskin belt with a large buckle – or add a cute hair accessory, brightly painted nails or eye-catching jewelry. The great thing about accessories is the cheap price, making updating your outfits effortless. I’ve got a collection of cheap scarfs that I love for this very reason!
3 Don’t Forget Shifts!
Okay, so dresses might be a tad impractical for the military – but that doesn’t mean they don’t rock the trend! Kate’s military look is based on statement pieces and classic shapes, and a shift dress can easily capture both. Opt for something with long sleeves and button or buckle detailing to draw the eye, and finish the look with nude shoes or ankle boots.
4 It’s All in the Shoes
5 Break the Rules
Don’t feel that you have to stick to monochrome colors to keep the look realistic. Light green, for example, is a great wardrobe choice that is almost certain to last forever. Short designs with small fold-ups look great worn with a white t-shirt and a detailed military blazer.
6 Mix up Your Materials
7 Avoid Fancy Dress Shops
So this one sounds obvious, but some people seem to really love these naff accessories… Remember to keep your military look more chic than fancy dress by avoiding play swords, pirate eye patches and anything else that makes you look like a children’s TV presenter.
Kate rocks her military look all the time – whether she’s on official engagements or just snapped about town with Pippa, she always looks glam. Steal her style by investing in a few classic pieces and adding a modern touch with accessories – and don’t forget to share your best buys here. I’d love to know what makes your look perfect!
