Kate Middleton’s Style for Less!

Tuesday, April 26th, 2011

kate middleton's style for less

Kate Middleton is in the spotlight now, but she’s been dressing fabulously even before everyone knew her name (like Cheers!)

I’ve taken three of her outfits and broken them down in ways you can get Kate Middleton’s style for less – much less!

First up is a preppy, pretty look for spring. Pair a light blue and white blouse with blue jeans, and accent the look with white! She used a white shoulder bag and white sandals to complete her look.

The second Kate Middleton style look is a pink dress. Now, you probably don’t have many occasions to wear super long dresses, but I found a similar pink pop of color in a Calvin Klein dress. There’s not cleavage and it’s paired nicely with any black clutch – especially one with a little ruching and rosette, don’t you think?

Thirdly, we have an outfit that’s very grown up and mature. It’s great for “meeting the parents at brunch” or something. Pair a soft, flowy dress of chiffon under a white blazer. Then, wear some navy pumps. I used an all blue drapey dress because when I saw it, it had the same tailored look we’re going for.

How to get Kate Middleton’s Style: Daniella Helayel ISSA LONDON Dresses

how to get kate middleton's style

Posh as a princess? You bet you can be! Kate Middleton’s style is classic and feminine, so why wouldn’t plenty of us want to steal her style?

Well, one way to do it is focus on dresses with flattering cuts. Middleton favors the designer Daniella Helayel’s line, ISSA LONDON, whose dresses have flattering cuts in solid colors. We’re talking about lots of draping in all the right places.

Daniella Halayel Dresses by ISSA London are just flat-out fabulous. These Issa London dresses are all very stately. I tried to pick only pieces that I could see Kate Middleton wearing. That last dress is especially regal, don’t you think? I don’t think you could wear it if you weren’t royal! (It’s very Grace Kelly, even.)

I’m sharing some pictures of the beautiful Chinese actress and Mandopop singer Fan Bing Bing. Half of everything about her is written in Chinese, but her sheer beauty translates pretty well. Isn’t she stunning? Her English wiki page says that she’s often called the “China Monica Bellucci”.

I think these are just all beautiful pictures for a style inspiration blog post:

What Would Alice in Wonderland Wear? Modern Spin

what would alice wear

This is the Mackenzie Mode Coco dress which is Chanel inspired. You can wear a tutu under the skirt for more fun. What a lovely frock!

The other style of dress I’m highlighting is actually called the Alice in Wonderland dress. I love both of these styles so much. If I were Alice Liddell, or in my own personal fairytale, I’d love to be wearing one of these.

how to dress like anne hathaway

Anne Hathaway is likable, relatable, and damn stylish. After the Oscars Anne went casual as she moved around LAX, deflecting the paparazzi with her killer sunglasses. I bet she just wanted to soak in a tub and sleep for three days. Mmm…I wish I could do that right now. Anywaaaay, you can steal her style with items from Sears.com (I know, right?), voila:

GLEE Fashion: Mercedes

So, you wanna dress like Mercedes from Glee? Hello, it’s Rachel, everyone. This is a plus sized post about Glee fashion. Specifically it will cover Mercedes fashion look. You may want to dress like Rachel Berry (or Quinn Fabray), and are plus size, so I’ll think about doing a post like that in the future. (Please leave a comment to let me know if that’s of interest.)

Mercedes is girly, powerful, talent and also insecure sometimes. She dresses in bright colors, and the pieces are sporty with a feminine, fun sense about them. Least that is how I see it.

    What would Rachel Berry wear? Well, it’s fun to think about that, isn’t it?

    Here’s my idea of what she’d wear for St. Patrick’s Day. I gave her a really cute denim purse, and used purple as a color to accent the green. I mean, how do you pass up purple kitten heels? Especially if you plan to wear them with sheer white polka-dotted socks!

    what would quinn fabray wear

    What Would Quinn Fabray wear? Well, here’s an idea…

    This spring-inspired look focuses on on Quinn doesn’t like to show a lot of skin, and always looks polished, likes dresses, florals, and flats. Purple looks great with yellow, so take this look from “standard” to fun with some shimmery organic  purple polish. I could see Quinn wearing this to church on Easter Sunday. Glee fashion with Quinn is always girly and pulled-together.
