Want To Dress Like A Royal? Here Are 13 Outfits Inspired From Kate Middleton’s Closet

The British Royal Family has been making style statements for over a century now. From Queen Elizabeth to little Princess Charlotte of Cambridge- each one of them is a style icon in their own light. And while talking about fashion that stems from the royals, how can we forget the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton? Kate has been giving us major fashion inspiration from the very day she became a part of the British Royal family. We all remember her blue Issa engagement dress and of course, her breathtakingly beautiful show-stopping Alexander McQueen wedding gown. Kate Middleton and her dresses are what we all wish to have in our closet- whether it is her penchant for gorgeous green get-ups or the occasional patterned frock. So here’s an affordable catalogue of Duchess Kate’s closet for you, you are going to love this one, we promise!

Workwear & Daywear Dresses

Kate Middleton’s daywear dresses are simply classic. Now, who wouldn’t want to dress with a modernly regal twist while going to work, right?

The famous ‘Kate Dress’


Let us start with a dress that has been popularly called the ‘Kate Dress’. Duchess Kate’s boat-neck dresses have gained popularity in the fashion universe as well as in our wardrobes. This one’s an A-line wool-crepe dress which features a boat neck, long sleeves as well as a detachable belt at the waist. It has a fit-and-flare skirt and is a must-have, in our opinion.

Checkered Patterns


Winter calls for checks and plaid and what’s better than wearing a gorgeous checkered dress to work? Duchess Kate definitely aces the look. Contrasting black check-work on a base hue of different shades- from green to white to red- Duchess has given us enough inspiration to style our wardrobe with checkered patterns that can be donned to the office or to an important meeting during the day.

Mid-length Skirts


Heading for a meeting but don’t want to dress too formally? This comfy dress gets Kate’s seal of approval. A flirty but modest A-line skirt dress will flatter every body type and leave enough room in it for you to be comfortable. 

Bespoke Coat Dresses


The perfect amalgamation of a blazer and a dress, Kate Middleton’s coat dresses are the perfect pick in case you have to make a presentation or head out for a formal meeting. These are usually full-sleeved and solid coloured dresses with no pattern. It’s the hue that does the talking here.

Collar Dress


Collars are a strong symbol of commitment and if you’re a hard-core professional, wearing a collar-dress like Duchess Kate’s will make you stand out in your place of work. 

Casual, Off-Duty Style

The Duchess also has her days off, and on those days, her personal style is rather casual. And, we must say, she aces the casual looks just as well! A tip we learnt from the Duchess, to look elegant even on an off day is to look for either floral prints or pastel hues. 

Floral Patterns


Crafted from lightweight crepe, this poppy-printed dress worn by Kate on a visit to the white garden has a distinct vintage vibe to it. Wish to replicate? You can check out a similar dress by Anita Dongre (AND)

Pastel Hues


Kate Middleton is quite fond of pastels. From powder blue to lavender and mint green, the Duchess has worn them all. The one we’ve picked up here is her pale pink blush Lela Rose dress which she paired with Monsoon beige wedges. Don’t miss the smooth fabric and piping detailing! Check out our in-budget version of this.

Brighter Than Sunshine


Isn’t yellow a colour that all of us would love to wear for a casual Sunday brunch? For all those who love to stand out from the crowd and break the monotony, opt for a yellow dress just like the Duchess. Don’t shy away from making a statement, pick a sunshine yellow! 

In Red: Christmas Brunch Inspiration


In the snap above, the 37-year old can be seen dressed in a ruby red frock by Alessandra Rich. What seems to be a perfect Christmas brunch dress, this one is emblazoned with white detail along with a statement shoulder detail and tailored cuffs. So, take some inspiration from the Duchess and paint the town red!

Pretty In Pink!


In a fun, sporty mood? Well, you can opt for pink just like Kate did. She wore a vibrant pink dress to watch Prince William play polo and looks effortlessly chic. 

Polka-Dot Love


A trend that took off after Julia Robert’s breathtaking makeover in Pretty Woman, polka dresses seem to be dominating the entire globe- right from the British Royal Family to us regular folk. Duchess Kate quite often wears polka-dot mid-length dresses of different colours- green, brown, burgundy, white, navy blue and black. This one here is a $645 silk dress by L.K. Bennett with long-sleeved design and a pussy-bow detail at the neck. But don’t worry, we’ve found you an equally adorable one, on a budget!

Evening Gowns & Cocktail Dresses

Cocktail dresses are most suitable for semi-formal occasions, evening gowns too will never go out of style. Here are three of our favourite evening gowns and cocktail dresses we spotted the Duchess of Cambridge wearing.

The Not-So Little Black Maxi Dress


Just like any of us, Duchess Kate also believes that black can never go wrong. Whether it is the belle of the ball in a strapless black velvet dress or a stunning Jenny Packham gown, Kate Middleton rocks all versions of black dresses. 

Elegant Glittery Gowns


Jenny Packham seems to be one of Kate’s favourite designers. This statement green glitter georgia dress worn by the Duchess of Cambridge is proof. So, if you are looking for that perfect showstopping Christmas outfit, draw inspiration from the Duchess herself and add this piece to your cart, immediately! 

Vintage Vibe In White!


Last but not the least, Kate Middleton’s white crochet maxi dress is a stunning staple indeed. Elegant and beautiful, this gown is the perfect dress to don for a cocktail party or an evening function. This one crafted out of geometric lace and features a sheer crochet bodice and a pleated crepe skirt with sexy high side slit. Now, who wouldn’t want to look regal by wearing something like this?
