So when she arrived yesterday at The Royal Charity Polo Cup to support Prince William from the sidelines (cute family dog in tow), we expected no less than the perfect summer event outfit— and of course, she delivered. The Duchess donned an effortless white Emilia Wickstead midi dress and, instead of her classic nude court heels, opted for an expensive-looking shoe style that we Who What Wear editors have recently been seeing all over the high street. Her cap-toe slingback flats were from Camilla Elphick, but affordable brands from M&S to ASOS have been selling out this polished style all summer.
Made famous, of course, by Chanel, the two-tone footwear has become a modern classic that every shoe collection can benefit from. In my particular experience as a stylist, it’s a style that can elevate a look in an instant. Whether paired with a simple white summer dress à la Kate, or on the bottom of a simple white T-shirt and cropped jeans outfit, this french-girl approved footwear choice basically makes any outfit look chic.
No doubt now that Kate has also given it her stamp of approval stock will be even harder to come by, but below I’ve managed to find some of the best options still available for you to browse and shop, as well as links to get Kate’s timeless summer look. Keep scrolling to see for yourself.
