In England in April 2011 this is going to come true for one young woman. It has been over 300 years since a commoner married an heir to the throne. Anne Hyde was the last commoner and she was married to future king James II. Kate Middleton is bringing back the sparkle that has been missing from the royal family since Princess Diana died.
She has what it takes to become a fashion style setter. Kate is polished and likeable. Woman everywhere are looking for someone who they can imitate without going over the top. Not everyone can pull off a Lady Gaga look. Kate’s look is sophisticated chic and yet styles like her Issa wrap dresses are a style that flatter almost everyone. Here are a few of her looks that can easily and affordably be adapted into your life.
One style that Kate has been seen wearing often is a classic style that is casual and chic. She wears blue jeans with riding boots and a variety of hats. She often wears a fedora style hat but recently has jumped onto the current fashion trend for faux fur hats. There are a variety of blazers that work with this look from a tweed classic style to a trendy velvet or velour one.
Kate has made a long skirt either plaid or solid color a fashion statement. She has been seen with fashionable sweaters over the skirt and for this season adding one with a faux fur collar is very fashion forward. One piece of headwear that adds a great touch to this look is a beret. It can be perched to the side or worn more to the back. For your look, play with it to find out what look works the best.
When it comes to dress up, Kate has made the simple wrap dress or the flowy style that Issa London is known for a very hot fashion look. Kate isn’t the only one who loves Issa, Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie are also great fans and attend her runway shows.
Kate has done wonders for the hat industry in Great Britain. Her head pieces ladylike and polished. She has taken to wearing what are called a fascinator, a little wispy mini hat that brings attention to the head and are interesting little accessories. People tend to forget that kate was an accessory buyer at one point in her working career and she has a very good feel for what makes a great accessory.
