It started with a wedding dress that all the fashion gurus said was the perfect gown for Kate Middleton. From that moment, all eyes have been on her. Now a royal, Catherine the Duchess of Cambridge is always scrutinized and her fashion sense critiqued.
As a royal, the Duchess opts for conservative attire, all of which I think is modest and attractive. Take a look at the outfits I’ve selected for various occasions and see why I feel they’re appropriate for Christian teen girls.
Let’s start with some summer dresses. The Duchess selects simple styles that are either tailored to her figure or flair out for a more relaxed feel. She often accessorizes with a simple clutch purse and plain pumps. As you can see, a modest look doesn’t mean boring, but rather elegant and sophisticated.
I love the following outfit. The Duchess is wearing an adorable crocheted top over a white pleated skirt. Again, it’s simple, but very fun, elegant, and modest.
When she has the chance to dress down, the Duchess chooses to relax in a pair of jeans with a leather belt. She typically pairs her jeans with a sweater, or a little top under a jacket, shawl, or shrug. She also dresses up her jeans with dress shirts.
Below I included a fun cowboy outfit she wore during her trip to North America.
The sweater dress below is one of my favorites. She adds a leather belt and her signature black nylons with high boots.
When it comes to accessorizing, it’s easy to see that the Duchess is a big fan of hats, scarves, opaque tights, and tall boots. She also enhances her ensembles with small earrings.
Now it’s time for the fun part. Even though you may not get many opportunities to wear an evening gown, I still wanted to share these dresses with you. Look more to the style of the dress rather than the length. You could opt for similar dresses that are knee length or a little above so that you can wear them for a less formal occasion.
The following is my favorite evening gown.
The Duchess of Cambridge’s fashion style has proven to be pretty diverse. At times she dresses in military style, which is definitely not something that I’d copy. However, the examples I’ve given above are so chic and modest, and because of this, I feel that her style is worthy of emulating if you are looking to dress well and with modesty.
Do you like the Duchess’ fashion style? Which ensemble do you like the best?
