I’m not sure whether Kate Middleton’s style is getting trendier lately or if the current products on offer all happen to be inspired by the duchess. Either way, the royal’s fashion sense has never been more current and I can’t help but get giddy thinking about at all the winter trends she’s participating in (or setting, depending on how you look at it). Since royal style skews conservative, there’s a plentiful list of items Middleton, Meghan Markle, and every other British royal can’t wear, and consequently, the list rules out a number of trends.
So, you can imagine my surprise and delight to discover Middleton getting behind five of the biggest winter trends right now. From styling a cropped cardigan just like all the fashion girls to accessorizing with pretty headgear that mirrors everything we’re seeing on Instagram, the duchess officially just became our winter trend style muse. Naturally, she pulled off them all off with the polished style she’s known for. Keep reading to see the winter trends Kate Middleton nailed and then shop our picks of each royalty-approved style.
