Kate Middleton, aka the Duchess of Cambridge, has always been as chic as anyone can get. She’s been a style inspiration for several years now. Naturally, 2019 wasn’t an exception to this rule. In fact, some might tell you that it’s been her best year so far!
Supporting An Ethical Fashion House
Kate made her first public appearance of the year in this dark green, long-sleeved dress that was made by one of her favorite brands. Designed by an ethical brand named Beulah London, the brand donates a tenth of its profits to human trafficking victims. Previously, Kate has worn items made by the brand. She wore this $770 dress when she was visiting Family Action, a United Kingdom charity that is giving underprivileged families financial and emotional support.
The Duchess Wears Alexander McQueen
If you’ve seen photos of Kate wearing white, you’d immediately know that’s her color. She looks so incredible wearing white. Just look at this Alexander McQueen gown she wore to the 2019 British Academy Film Awards in London. The royal wore her hair up in a bun and accessorized with a diamond bracelet, pearl and diamond earrings, and a white clutch. There’s no doubt she and her husband stole the show when they arrived.
Just Like A Disney Princess
It turned out to be a subtle year for Kate in terms of her style as it was on the casual. All the same, she looked like a Disney princess when she went to the 100 Women in Finance Gala. We love the multi-tone rose tulle gown she wore. Completing the look, she paired the Gucci gown with a velvet Prada clutch and a sparkling pair of white heels designed by Oscar de la Renta. This isn’t the first time she’s worn something inspired by a Disney princess.
Not Just A Lady But A Rebel Too
When Kate Middleton went to a party held in honor of exceptional people in Northern Ireland, she wore this $2,480 dress made by Missoni. The guests of honor we shocked to see her and Prince William there. The dress is a stunning sea-foam color, but the Duchess made headlines for more than her dress. People saw the way she went to the bar and poured herself a pint!
Boasting True Royal Finesse
On the second day of her Northern Ireland visit, the Duchess wore a baby blue Mulberry coat. It seems she’s a big fan of the brand. She wore the coat while attending a Cinemagic charity event in Ballymena. The belted, button-down coat was nothing but elegant, adding flair to the whole look!
The Perfect Outfit For Autumn
Here we have a more casual look Kate wore. She wore this to her October surprise visit to the National History Museum. The burgundy neck has a defined neck and sleeved and was paired with olive green wide-leg pants. This is the perfect look for autumn. The colors compliment each- other effortlessly and the whole outfit it elegant and classic. Kate completed this look with a Chanel handbag, gold Asprey hoops, and matching burgundy heels.
An Elegant Beauty
Wearing a pale blue outfit, Kate attended a reception at Buckingham Palace last March. Looking incredible, we adore the quirky details of the dress like the buttons running down the front and the high collar. It all adds elegance and class to the dress. Somehow, the Duchess makes the most vintage pieces look modern and chic. This dress was paired with cream-colored heels and a stunning blue clutch.
Kate Middleton Is Radiant In Ruby Red
Kate seems to be fond of pastel colors. That’s why people spoke more about the Catherine Walker coatdress she wore in this photo. The red coatdress was adorned with big gold buttons, which is, of course, a classic color combination. To top it off, she paired it with a matching bow fascinator. The bold outfit was her attire for the Commonwealth Service which was held at Westminster Abbey. You might remember that the duchess wore the same coat to a New Zealand visit in 2014.
Caps And Loose Hair
Take a look at these pictures below and you’ll see that they were taken at different events. This is an example of Kate wearing the same dress but with a twist. She later added cap sleeves to the Alexander McQueen gown. The first time she wore it was to the 2017 BAFTAs and then again when she attended the Portrait Gala in March last year. The dress has off-the-shoulder straps originally, but it’s been altered to look less formal since. Both versions are gorgeous in our opinions!
The Duchess Of Cambridge And The Queen
You’d be surprised to hear this, but their visit to King’s College in London was the first solo outing of the Queen and Kate. Unlike previous affairs, they weren’t joined by other members of the royal family. The Duchess wore a more subdue outfit to allow Her Majesty to shine. Kate wore a gray coat-dress designed by Catherine Walker while the Queen wore a baby pink outfit. To complete her outfit, the Duchess wore a black fascinator, heels and held a black clutch.
Her Daughter’s First Day Of School
This was Princess Charlotte’s first day of school. Kate went with a simple floral dress when she brought her daughter to Thomas’s Battersea. It was a $180 dress from Michael Kors! This isn’t the first time Kate was seen in this floral outfit since she wore it for Harry and Meghan’s wedding rehearsal in 2018.
Perfection In Powder Blue
Kate probably curates her wardrobe exactly now. By looking at the colors and patterns of her clothing, she seems to have figured out her style. This $2,000 dress was one she wore to a visit in the Back to Nature garden in September. We already know she loves powder blue, but this dress had a floral pattern and a matching belt.
Paying A Lovely Tribute
Prince William and Kate met Prince Shah Karim Al-Husseini or Aga Khan IV when they were visiting the Aga Khan Centre in October. The Duchess sported a teal ARoss Girl x Soler dress which she paired with a green belt. She accessorized the outfit with Zeen earrings. It turns out that she wanted to wear these earrings as a tribute to the Pakistani designer.
Chic During A Christening
Taken when Archie, Prince Harry, and Meghan’s son, was christened in the private chapel of Windsor Castle. Of course, Kate was as chic as ever. She wore this blush pink Stella McCartney dress and paired it with pumps. It’s no secret that accessories are crucial to the royal family, so it makes sense she made the right choice by wearing simple drop earrings and a headband.
An English Summer Event
For a long time now, Kate has been a big fan of tennis. She loved watching a few Wimbledon games each year. This picture was taken when she was at the Center Court’s Royal Box. This Suzannah dress was accessorized with an Alexander McQueen belt.
Beautiful In Black And White
Wearing a gorgeous black and white outfit, Kate attended the Order of the Garter last June. She wore a Catherine Walker coat dress that had black piping and a white collar. Topping it off with pearl earrings, black pumps, and a black hat, this look is definitely iconic!
Royalty And Hollywood Stars
Another iconic look worn by the Duchess is this Erdem dress. With an asymmetric neckline, mismatched buttons, and vintage detailing, it was a killer look. The timeless piece was accessorized with a purple belt.
The Duchess Wears Elie Saab
Just look at this stunning Elie Saab dress worn by Kate! The light blue piece had lovely details from sheer sleeves to tiny polka dots. On top of that, we adore the matching powder blue Philip Treacy hat.
Middleton Is Memorable In Magenta
Despite the fact that Kate is a royal family member, she has no problem repeating outfits and we salute her for that! She’s been seen wearing this magenta suit twice in the past. The first time was in January 2017. While this Oscar de la Renta piece if from the 2015 fall collection, it’s definitely timeless. This time, she wore it to the Nook Children’s Hospice for a visit in 2019.
She Is A True Fashion Recycler
The Duchess’ habit of outfit recycling is pretty amazing if you ask us. Another example is this stunning Barbara Casasola off-the-shoulder dress. It’s the second time she’s worn the cream-colored number. Wearing it to the first Addiction Awareness Week gala, she accessorized it with glittery pumps and a satin clutch.
A Nod To Her In-Laws
When she went to the Trooping the Color parade, Kate wore a beautiful pastel yellow Alexander McQueen dress. Her matching yellow fascinator was designed by Philip Treacy. This event was a rare joint appearance of her and Meghan together since Meghan had just gotten out of maternity leave at the time.
Using Fashion To Show Respect
Sporting matching green outfits as a nod to the official Pakistani color, Prince William and Kate looked incredible. The Duchess of Cambridge wore a shimmery floor-length Jenny Packham dress along with a dupatta scarf. Prince William also is the first male royal family member to wear a knee-length sherwani.
She Is A Style Legend
We’re about to show you even older pictures to show you just how stylish Kate is. This sequined and studded gown is from the 2011 Jenny Packham collection. This was one of the first outfits the Duchess recycled. This is also one dress that cemented her status as a fashion icon! Taken in 2016, this picture is when Kate attended a charity gala dinner held at Houghton Hall in King’s Lynn.
Blue And Beautiful
While on the royal tour of Pakistan, Kate had several iconic looks. On the first day of the tour, she donned a traditional Pakistani garment called shalwar kameez. This one was designed by Catherine Walker. The teal color reminded others of the shalwar kameez Princess Diana wore when she visited Pakistan in 1996.
Royals Wear Zara As Well
Only Kate Middleton would be able to make a Zara outfit look royal. The Duchess was seen wearing black culottes and a black-and-white polka-dotted top to match. Simple but elegant, this outfit was worn to an event hosted by the Sunshine House Children and Young People’s Health Development Center in September.
