Royal Summer: Kate Middleton Tropical-Inspired Fashion, Dresses and Looks [PHOTOS]
The always fashionable Duchess of Cambridge has shown her share in wearing summer-friendly dresses during her public appearances. To inspire women to dress like a princess, here are some Duchess-worthy dresses fit for the warm and hot season, as well as for tropical getaways.
Kate Middleton made a splash during her overseas tour in North America and Southeast Asia with the outfits she chose to wear. Consisting mostly of summer dresses, the Duchess inspired many women around the world to dress simple, while not forgetting the essentials that make an outfit elegant and inspiring.
One of her most famous summer dresses is the bright and yellow Jaeger Pleated dress the Duchess wore during a visit in the tropical islands. Catherine paired it with her signature LK Bennett pumps-an outfit just right for the summer breeze.
Another hit summer outfit the Duchess sported is the Project D Penelope flower-printed dress Catherine wore during one of her official visits. It has a simple loose silhouette with a belt detail to bring out her curves. Another beach-suitable Duchess outfit is the Topshop front gathered blue and white dress she frequently wears during the time when she was just Prince William's girlfriend.
Who could forget the Tav Pacific strapless tropical dress Catherine wore during her stay in the Solomon Islands? The flowery prints and pink and plum color scheme make it perfect for any beach getaway. Pair it with sandals or even flip flops for a care fee-but-elegant paradise vacation.
The Duchess is also known to be a big fan of the brand, Erdem, and is constantly seen wearing its creations. The pleated floral dress with sheer, loose sleeves Kate sported in an appearance in the UK will be just right for a summer night out, especially with the simple color tones of cream, lavender, and light blue and orange details that just screams out "summer" when worn.
Just because it is summer, it doesn't mean Kate Middleton fashion followers will limit their color choices to vibrant hues. In an appearance, Catherine wore a dark blue Mulberry Nightshade dress that comes with a belt that can be perfect for a summer night out. Replace the pumps with strappy sandals, colorful accessories, and a "party summer outfit" is complete.
