The Duchess of Cambridge's style evolution: recreate Kate's top looks

The Duchess of Cambridge, formerly known as Kate Middleton, has remained a British style icon for over a decade.

Although the 38-year-old’s style has evolved since she entered the Royal Family in 2011, her signature wardrobe staples have stayed much the same.

The mother-of-three has continued to champion British high street brands such as L.K. Bennett, Warehouse, and Accessorize - making many of the duchess’ looks affordable to purchase, that is, if they don’t sell out in record time.

The duchess also has a list of go-to designers, including Jenny Packham, Alexander McQueen and Erdem.

The luxury labels often create bespoke gowns for the duchess for royal occasions such as state dinners around the world, charitable receptions at Buckingham Palace and glamorous red carpet events.

From Kate’s iconic engagement look, to one of her best high street ensembles, here’s how to recreate a few of our favourite Duchess of Cambridge looks.
