Kate Middleton has perfectly bridged the gap of her signature fashion sense with royal dressing rules as she prepares to become queen.
Anthony McGrath, a celebrity stylist, and lecturer at the Fashion Retail Academy in London, explained in Harper’s Bazaar how Kate’s style has changed over the years and how she’s expertly integrated her personal style with the fashion rules she’s expected to follow as a member of the royal family.
On her pre-royal style, McGrath says, “Since Kate has been in the limelight she has always been somewhat of a conservative dresser, whether that was because she wanted to prove herself to the Royal Family or was her own personal style, who knows, but she was rarely seen in anything too risqué.”
However, since marrying Prince William and officially becoming a member of the Royal Family, her outfits have certainly become more modest. “She had to leave behind the flirty and floaty dress, thigh-skimming minis and low-cut evening gowns.”
For her signature look, which is the look she is most known for, he says that skirt suits and coat dresses have become staples and go-to items for public engagements. “She also introduced an array of A-lines dresses in various different colors, decorative hats for formal events and closed-toe shoes,” he shared.
McGrath emphasized that she should be given credit for staying true to who she has and not molding herself into something else entirely.
“Slowly, but surely, she has finessed her style over the years and her style is without a doubt, suitable for a future queen.”
