Despite her rather conservative style, Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, was a picture of grace and sophistication during the second royal tour of Canada. Throughout the eight-day trip, her outfits were impeccable and tastefully curated for every occasion, effortlessly blending high-end designer pieces with high-street staples. It’s no wonder that the Duchess remains a fashion icon for the millennial generation. To bring you a dose of regal yet hip sartorial inspiration straight from Kate’s travel wardrobe, Savoir Flair is taking a closer look at her chicest ensembles.

1

The Royal Treatment

Without a doubt, Kate’s dressy and formal looks are everyone’s favorites, with a strong color palette and eclectic designer pieces taking center stage. Besides color coordinating with the Canadian flag, the Duchess accessorized her looks with a diamond maple-leaf brooch borrowed from the Queen herself, thereby acknowledging the host country through her fashion choices.

Middle Ground

For her semi-formal looks, Kate opted for neutral tones and monochrome pairings. Blazers and similar silhouettes courtesy of high-street labels flattered her slim physique while proving practical for outdoor functions and activity-filled events.

Casual Cool

In an effort to showcase the accessible side of her signature style, Kate opted for comfortable looks in mostly earthy tones with a punch of red thrown in for good measure. The hero pieces in her casual looks, however, were her footwear choices. Whether it’s the brown-suede cowboy variety or the Penelope Chilvers tasseled style, her boots did all the talking.
