Sure, Kate’s been known to sport a great dress, and understandably we’re often inspired by these stylish choices, but her recent penchant for shorts is a new aesthetic for the Duchess—one you could say feels comparatively “un-royal” when you consider her usual penchant for coat frocks. Regardless, one thing we can rely on is that any outfit that Kate wears, it’s usually comprised with easy to replicate elements that can be combined in various ways to create endless outfits. Take her latest look, the striped top is a wardrobe staple that often appears in our own capsule wardrobes and has a cool French-Girl feel. The tailored shorts are the simplest way to keep cool and still look put together whilst summer days continue. For work, a sleek pair of mules will take these from day to office wear, but for downtime or running errands, a simple pair of trainers are the perfect finishing touch.
