Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Erdem – Poland State Visit Day 2

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were out attending engagements in Gdansk, a port city on the Baltic coast of Poland, on the second day of the royal tour today (18 July).

Looking every inch an English rose, Catherine wore a top and matching skirt by Erdem, which is one of her go-to brands during royal tours.

If Catherine was a celebrity, I would be wondering if she’d switched stylists, as the – very subtle changes – in her style since Wimbledon have certainly put a spring in her step.

Not only is she looking much younger (with the glosser, shorter tresses), but much less frumpy and by her standards – more adventurous with her styling opting for Stuart Weitzman ‘NearlyNude’ patent-leather sandals and a clutch by Polish brand Etui.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Alexander McQueen & Gosia Baczyńska – Poland Official Visit

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge has been on an official visit in Poland, where her new lease on style has followed her from England to Warsaw.

Warsaw Rising Museum: Arriving on Monday (July 17), she visited the Warsaw Rising Museum in an Alexander McQueen peplum suit that was lovely on its own accord. But, can we take a moment and appreciate the candy-apple-red Jenny Packham clutch and the sassier rendition of Gianvito Rossi nude pumps, each of which enhanced the fresh appeal of this classic look.

Queen’s Birthday Garden Party: I love how Catherine paid homage to her hosts with this bespoke dress from Polish designer Gosia Baczyńska. Perfect for a modern garden party, it had timeless appeal in its black-and-white palette and ladylike tea length whilst also offering an artistic edge. Pearls and a Prada clutch, not to mention yet another variation on Gianvito Rossi (ankle-strap!) heels completed the look with classic flourish.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Preen – Hintze Hall Launch Event

Having been camera shy for the State Banquet at Buckingham Palace, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge attended the reopening of Hintze Hall at the Natural History Museum on Thursday (July 13) in London.

She wore a Preen by Thornton Bregazzi dress which possessed a classic silhouette and was super flattering.

I was starting to feel very ho-hum about the light-blue hue until I scanned to her shoes.

That’s two outings sans L.K. Bennett or Gianvito Rossi suede pumps in a row.

I had to do a double check that night-time fatigue wasn’t playing tricks on me and Catherine was really wearing the same Prada scalloped sandals we recently saw in red on Gemma Arteton and countless other celebs.

What’s next? Louboutins? Now that would send me over the edge with shock.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Dolce & Gabbana – Wimbledon Tennis Championships

Andy Murray starts the defence of his Wimbledon championship, with Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge watching on this afternoon (July 3).

As you know it’s rare for me to get excited about any look donned by the Duchess, but this Dolce & Gabbana dress swept me off my feet.

I love the relaxed feel and how the simple design recalls classic retro silhouettes.

It’s formal enough for the occasion without stripping away any of the fun and personality imbued by the polka dots.

Even the styling feels chic, and dare I say modern.

I can’t remember a time I didn’t see Kate without a clutch or a pair of L.K. Bennett nude, black or navy pumps, so this is refreshing on so many levels.

It looks like the new shorter hairstyle has put a new spring in the duchess’s step. Long may it continue.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge Visits The New V&A In Gucci

As chicly sophisticated as always, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge paid a visit to the new V&A Exhibition Road Quarter in London on Thursday (June 29).

Proving that tweed can actually cut a charming spring profile, she wore a Gucci Pre-Fall 2017 dress enlivened by its bold red piping detail.

While we’ve now come to expect some manner of her favourite LK Bennett pumps, these being the ‘Art’ navy variety, the red clutch is what really enhanced the dress here.

Kiki McDonough diamond earrings rounded out the look with an elegant finish.
