Dressing for the Races: Did the Duchess Get it Right at Epsom?
Fit for a Duchess but is Kate’s Outfit for the Races fit for the Rest of Us?
The Duchess of Cambridge’s outfit for the races choice couldn’t have been better. Albeit she looked, well, like the usual Kate: beautiful but with a touch of the ‘frump’ about her dress for the races. Colour-wise however, Kate’s Reiss Peacock dress and matching white Joseph jacket looked sublime on the Duchess, accentuating her (‘naturally’, spray-tan sporting among us take note ) tanned complexion.
We love how Kate’s embracing the trend for white dresses currently having a summer moment. Let’s face it, unlike some of her royal family counterparts (we won’t mention names!) Kate has the natural beauty to carry off anything. What’s more, the Duchess has no need whatsoever to let her flesh do the talking.
Although, we have to say that we’re with the Telegraph on the Duchess wearing tights with her outfit for the races- take them off Kate, you’ve got pins to die for and summer is well and truly upon us!
Dressing for the Races: Kate Shuns Designer Once Again
While the Duchess could have gone for a designer dress when it came to dressing for the the races, there’s something great about her choosing to keep her fashion choices local-i.e. going for British brands. And we love that Kate hasn’t abandoned her love for the high street just because she’s joined the FIRM. With such an eye for quality and craftsmanship at reasonable prices, the Duchess would no doubt delight at the thought of being able to hire a designer dress. We wonder if, in dressing for the races, Kate would approve of the following dresses? Rent dresses for the races like these directly from us. And we’ll even take care of your accessories!
