Ascot attire

Kate Middleton Ascot 2016

Every year we swoon over the royal family’s ascot outfits. The hats, the dresses, the jewels, what’s not to love about this wonderful family affair? One of my favourite looks from the Kate Middleton style archives is the outfit she wore on her royal ascot debut. Dressed head-to-toe in lace sporting a Dolce & Gabbana gown, the Duchess of Cambridge was a vision in white. She styled her ascot look with a dainty pair of drop pearl earrings for a crisp and bright summer look.

Meghan Markle Ascot 2016
Meghan’s ascot debut also took the form of a shining white outfit. Opting for a striking white Givenchy gown with contrasting black details, Meghan showcased a contemporary and fashion-forward ensemble during this traditional event. Meghan accessorised her look using understated diamond details such as a dainty pair of earrings and her not-so-dainty engagement ring. Inspired by Meghan’s favourite combination of yellow gold and diamonds, shop Rosey West’s elegant earrings.

Summer formals

Kate Middleton

When those formal garden party invites start flooding your inbox, you’ll want to be prepared for the occasion. Meghan and Kate seem to have the summer formal look down to a tee. Kate radiates feminine grace through her wardrobe. Opting for feminine materials and silhouettes, she makes the ideal style icon for those whose style leans towards gentle and soft aesthetics. Wearing a nude sequin colour dress adorned in gemstones, the Duchess is the epitome of sophistication. She accessorises simply with a pair of chandelier earrings for a royal look that radiates charm.

Meghan Markle Summer

Meghan, who tends to go for more structured ensembles over feminine pieces, puts together a classic summer look with this denim dress. The formal cut paired with the modern denim material creates a smart-casual look that emanates elegance. She dresses her look up with a pair of aquamarine stud earrings wearing her hair in a delicate up do. XISSJEWELLERY’s aquamarine studs offer an affordable way to recreate Meghan’s look this summer.

Borrowing the jewellery of the late Princess Diana, Meghan Markle radiates charm wearing a yellow gold sapphire cuff.
