Kate Middleton and Alice Temperley

If you’d have told me a few years ago that I would be quoting a member of the Royal family as a fashion inspiration, I would most likely have scoffed in your face! I believe that Kate and Will’s wedding has greatly increased the Royal’s popularity over recent years; it has certainly changed my view.  …Also, as we share the same name, I like to think that I now have a justified excuse to call myself Princess Catherine!

I’ve come to really admire Kate’s personal style and how she represents modern British based designers such as Alice Temperley (as pictured above), Erdem, Jenny Packham, and Catherine Walker (a favourite of Diana). Her preference for lace and flattering three quarter sleeves and a-line shapes compliment her femininity and elegance.  She has found what styles work for her and wears them well.  

The Temperley white lace dress on the left is perhaps one of my favourite outfits that I’ve seen Kate wear and it prompted me to take a look at Alice Temperley’s Somerset collection.  I was really impressed by the dresses and accessories that the collection has to offer and have picked out my favourite items below.  The dress is gorgeous and would be a fantastic choice for the upcoming party season.  The rest of the items I’ve picked are pieces that can really change an outfit.  I love the ruffle detail on the shirt and I’d pair it with some super-skinny black jeans and sparkly flats, a la Alexa.

Will you be treating yourself to anything from the Somerset collection?

  1. She always looks so well groomed and elegant. I love lace and find it suits her well! Liking the items you've placed together to – I agree, skinny jeans all the way with the top!
