Elegance First: 5 Style Lessons Kate Middleton Has Left Us With

Kate Middleton is an epitome of grace and elegance. Through her various meetings with prominent dignitaries during her India visit, Kate was always occasion and picture perfect. If you wanna know how to impress with royal elegance, here are some things you can learn from Kate’s sense of style:

Lesson 1:

You need to have some jewel tones in your wardrobe, and boat necks are essential. Also, one style element must stand out in your outfit; whether it is lace or peplum.

Lesson 2:

A Peter Pan collar and a well fitted basic white dress is always a sure hit. Stick to simple A-line silhouettes and there’s no way you’ll go wrong with this age old, tried-and-tested formula.

Lesson 3:

Matching separates (not necessarily showing off your midriff) are perfect for summer outings. They’re classy, trendy and a visual delight.

Lesson 4:

Dresses in ethnic prints spell out your love for summer. Natural, breathing fabrics and attractive paisley prints are stunning to look at and so comfortable to be in. Isn’t that just splendid?

Lesson 5:

A classic gown, some shimmer and midnight blue can never get old. What’s to pick up here though is the smart addition of a cape to add a refreshing, new look. Think smart, ladies!
