Celebrating One Year of Kate Middleton Fashion

As of this Sunday, Kate Middleton has graced us with her classy royal presence for an entire year. Ever since the April 29th royal wedding (and honestly, even before that), we’ve been obsessed with her carefully crafted, sophisticated fashion choices. And it’s not just her pretty outfits; her willingness to re-use items she’s already worn (shocker!) has us standing in awe over her and her “commoner” ways.

In honor of their one-year anniversary, here are the Kate Middleton looks we loved this year.

The detail on the coat is stunning, but what about that hat? Nothing accessorizes an outfit quite like a big, extravagant British hat.

In June, Kate dressed the part while attending a military event with her hubby. Another Alexander McQueen creation (noticing a trend?), this sophisticated double-breasted dress perfectly complements yet another great hat.

Kate doesn’t wear a lot of bright colors, but when she does, she wears them well. This regal purple dress, which she wore in July, proves she can pull off sophisticated-sexy.

Cowboy hats are rarely classified as stylish, but Kate made them look cool with a classy white lace top and a chunky (yet not tacky) belt buckle.

Always on trend, Kate wears this navy blue dress and peplum jacket while supporting the Queen on her Diamond Jubilee tour. The Queen—decked out in hot pink—doesn’t look too bad herself!

Despite its dark grey color, this dress looks perfectly feminine with its fitted top, subtle bow, and flowy skirt.
