Breaking fashion news out of Buckingham Palace: Kate Middleton is wearing a NEW floral dress. You read that right…Kate is wearing prints — AGAIN! While this wouldn’t be all that exciting if it were anyone else, this is big news for the royal recycler, who has been all about experimenting with her sense of style lately — and we can’t get enough of it.
Another day, another fresh, fashionable look on Kate Middleton! While we’ve always been obsessed with the Duchess, 34, and her chic sense of style, it seems like this year she has totally stepped it up. Not only is the royal recycler debuting a slew of new outfits, but she’s also experimenting with new trends and taking fun fashion risks — and so far they’re all totally paying off!
The Duchess looked divine when she stepped out in a long-sleeved floral dress at Buckingham Palace on Oct. 18 for a reception which welcomed Olympic athletes from Great Britain. For the occasion Kate relied on one of her favorite high-fashion labels: Alexander McQueen. She looked amazing in her pretty, printed dress which featured a red flower print, which she matched with red pumps.
Fall florals are everywhere we look this season, and Kate has an affinity for the new trend — and we’re totally here for it. Her latest look comes right after Kate stepped out in a pale pink floral Kate Spade dress which featured a pleated skirt and a pussy bow. She first started switching it up and throwing some prints into the mix while on the royal tour to India, and it looks like she’s really having more fun with her fashion ever since. Considering she’ll one day be the queen of England, Kate obviously can’t experiment with her style on Kardashian proportions, so corsets as tops and t-shirt dresses are clearly out of the question for Kate — but that doesn’t mean she can’t push the royal envelope on her own terms! That’s just what she appears to be doing, one mid-calf grazing dress at a time.
