How to Dress Like Kate Middleton - Top 10 Tips to Catch a Prince

Updated on February 18, 2015

How Cool is Kate Middleton?

When she's not busy marrying royalty on international TV or delivering speeches with grace, Kate's borrowing mummy's dresses and making them look just gaspworthy. Kate digs holes and plants trees in fierce frocks wearing killer heels! It's all in a day for Kate.

Prior to her recent pregnancies Kate was last seen cavorting on a London field showcasing the snuggest, coral hued jeans on the planet. The Duchess of Cambridge put her effortless style on display once again. She even scores a goal. Of course she does. Irresistible and fashion flawless, Kate possesses superpowers unattainable for we commoners.

But we all wanna be as cool as Kate.

Hang on a minute! Kate Middleton was a commoner! So the real question is, how can you dress like a Duchess minus the budget? Sure, you could try wearing your mother's dresses but unless you accessorize with a prince on your arm that might not work.

Never fear! Help is at hand. Right here is your very own piece of fierce fashion advice to get started on a Kate Middleton style of your very own to brighten up your days.

I've put together a bunch of "gotta have it" Kate Middleton coats, shoes, boots and reading material along with heavenly hair product advice from London hair stylist Michael Von Clarke. You too can achieve that luxuriant hair toss, for work, play or just simply rocking the look.

Who knows? With a bit of luck and the right advice, maybe you'll find a prince of your very own.

Congratulations Kate

Congratulations Kate & Wills on the birth of baby Prince George of Cambridge.

Welcome Back Kate!

Kate Steps Out Post Baby George

We were all glad to see Kate return to public life today, even if only briefly, dressed in Pied a Terre Imperia wedges, Zara blouse, black skinnies and a recycled Ralph Lauren blazer, Kate appeared looking relaxed and as fabulously slim as ever.

Fashion fabulous Kate presented new baby Prince George wearing Jenny Packham, reminiscent of Dianna on these same steps with Prince William all those years ago.

The silky, crepe de chine, dusty blue easy fit dress was a bespoke piece designed for the event. You can't buy it. Nonetheless the website crashed almost immediately after Kate's appearance on the hospital steps.

Top 10 Tips to Catch a Prince

Kate Middleton Style

  1. Identify your neighbourhood prince. Usually found captaining everything from the football to the debate team. Submit Facebook friend request. Commence stalking.
  2. Greet him with an "Err hair lair." This is Sloane Ranger speak. To translate, say 3 times quickly.
  3. Lose some weight. Chill girls. I just said some. It can't hurt. You know I'm right.
  4. Make sure he harbors aspirations of obtaining a helicopter license.

    Keen to impress Kate, Prince William once notoriously "borrowed" a helicopter from the Royal Air Force landing it in the Middleton's backyard, whilst the family watched on with delight.

  5. Buy a Burberry jacket. Fake is fine. Refer "How to Spot a Sloane" section. Anyway, have you seen those prices?
  6. Understand the "Importance of Navy Blue".
  7. Refer to self as "one". Practice saying, "One shall" and "one shan't".
  8. Practice, practice, practice, the luxuriant hair toss.
  9. Read a few of those book thingies.
  10. Do nothing; I say NOTHING, like Snookie. We all love her, but don't go there. No fake tans please.

The Landing Spot

The Middleton family home is 16 miles away from RAF Odiham. Prince William landed the helicopter just yards from the garden. Rather dashing don't you think?.

Kate Middleton Trench Coats - Kate Middleton in Burberry Trench Coat.

Don't you just love this coat? I do. It's my all time favourite, flirty, fun and timeless. I tried a $1600 Burberry trench coat on once, years ago. A sublime moment I've never forgotten. I want one before I die. The delicate stitching combined with an amazing cut. Yesss! I instantly appeared six inches taller and five kilos lighter. How do they do that?

Don't want to spend the big bucks? Me either. High Street brands do a fab, affordable type as well.

Buy a genuine item at an affordable price on ebay.

You can't go wrong with a navy blue or black trench or military style coat. The silhouette is classic, creating a chic and elegant image no matter what's underneath. Teamed with jeans or dresses, flats or boots, this style of coat makes life easy.

Try a lightweight fabric for Spring or rainy days and a wool blend for chilly Winter days.

Once this item is in your wardrobe it's hardly ever on the hook. A good quality coat in this style will simply last forever. And you can't ask for more than that.

Understanding the Importance of Navy Blue

All time favourite blazer wearing Sloane Ranger style icons:

Dianna :Princess of Wales (obviously)

Sienna Miller

Trinny & Susannah

Jennifer Saunders of "Ab Fab" fame

Jemima Khan

From Princess Dianna to Jemima Khan and now the Middleton sisters, navy blue blazers are a staple item in any functioning wardrobe.

Don't have one? Here are some great choices for those occasions when too many blazers are hardly enough.

Well known for re-cycling her clothes, Kate fills her wardrobe with classic, staple items such as blazers . Designer items are often paired with High Street brand, affordable fashions like Zara and Whistles for versatility and individual style.

How to Spot a Sloane Ranger

Sloane Ranger: A term coined in the Eighties to describe the posh crowd that generally hang out on Chelsea's King's Road, which begins at Sloane Square.

They were typically known for a rather fussy, preppy style such as pashmina shawls, pearls and Alice bands (pre-marriage Princess Di), but today's "Sloanes" are more Prada than Peter Jones (middle-of-the-road department store on Sloane Square).

Kate Middleton Shoes


Kate wears simple pumps, usually in black or nude shades. It's great idea to team with almost any outfit. Classic, timeless and oh so chic.

These boots are made for walking !

Grab your knee high boots and pair them with a dress or three quarter length evening coat and you simply can't go wrong! Kate often glams up her uber chic style on a chilly day with this simple combo.

Kate Middleton Jeans - Kate usually wears Zara or J Brand Jeans

So your running late. Again! End the madness today. Throw on a pair of pretty as a picture, Kate style sorbet jeans, white tee, important navy blue blazer and make a dash for it.

Never fear. Miami Vice has not returned. But take your inspiration where you can young woman! Cool as ice, yet smokin' hot, Don Johnson's 80's colour palette was rather smashing.

Skinny jeans suit every occasion. Dress them up or down with heels, flats or ankle boots. Add a blazer for a day out or sequinned top for evenings. Throw on shirt and loose cardigan for shopping. Dress up with a trench coat. The possibilties are endless for this must have item.

International style icon Kate wore a sophisticated teal ensemble by one of her favorite designers L.K. Bennett, cinching the suit jacket at the waist with a belt to create a flattering peplum effect.

The royal couple, who celebrate their first wedding anniversary on Sunday, stepped from their chauffeur-driven car and walked the short distance to the BFI Southbank in London as banks of photographers shouted for their attention.

      I'd love to have my fittings from her very own designer. I could find similar clothing anywhere, but the fitting is simply not the same. Or maybe, it's just her impeccable figure and poise. I really like her.
