Duchess of Cambridge: Practicing sensible fashion trends with class in monarchy

See also

HRH Catherine Duchess of Cambridge, the former Kate Middleton, has made it clear she doesn't wear a trending or classic outfit only one time. In days gone by, royalty would never even consider wearing an article of formal or classic clothing; however Duchess Catherine has decided to toss this tradition rather than the beautiful, but barely worn, clothing in her wardrobe.

The former Kate Middleton has held on to this commoner trait of wearing classic fashion trends more than once. Her reasons for recycling clothes may cross the gamut; such as she really likes the outfit, she doesn't want to appear old fashion, values the clothing she has or it may come from her roots.

The Duchess was not raised to only wear an outfit only once; therefore Catherine is once again a trailblazer for monarchy fashion trends. How about the other fashion trends that the Duchess of Cambridge has followed since her fairy-tale wedding on April 29, 201 at Westminster Abbey?

  • Pantyhose- Catherine doesn't make a move without her classic trusty nylons (that most of the time we can barely see)
  • Modesty- Unlike some high profile celebs in the US, Catherine is very reserved in her fashion style (no cleavage or midriff styles)
  • Classic- Catherine sticks with beautiful choices that are not outrageous or daring (a classic style that will lead her to a best dressed winner every year)

We have seen several gowns and outfits that Catherine Duchess of Cambridge has recycled and there are plenty of examples in the slide show. What is your favorite outfit that we've seen Catherine wearing? Leave a comment below and let’s see which royal outfit tops the cake!
