Lessons from the Duchess

Kathy Cambridge may or may not have a "real" job, but her outfit choices can teach us all a few things. The Duchess consistently nails proportions, classic looks, and perfect tailoring. 

The perfect jacket is like a cherry on top of an outfit sundae. Pick a belted coat for a feminine shape. Don't be afraid to add your own belt for a custom look! Picking a coat that can be worn to the office and to the grocery store is budget friendly and expands your outfit choices. If the Duchess can repeat outfits, so can you!

We may all not be royalty, but that doesn't mean that our appearances aren't scrutinized. Hem length can make or break an outfit.  However, mastering hem length doesn't come easily. Too long = stubby legs. Too short = getting attention for all the wrong reasons. 
Kate learned early on that short skirts wouldn't fly with Grandma Elizabeth.Take a cue from grown-up Kate and embrace sleek, modest styles that cover your legs but still accentuate your waist. 
Get the Duchess's Look: 


High enough heel to keep your legs looking good, yet short enough to be comfortable and look daytime appropriate.... easier said than done. Yet, the Duchess seems to master this look with nearly every public appearance.
Duchess Pick: LK Bennet Sledge Pump $345
Closed toe, small platform, moderate heel... Well done Kathy. Well done.  


Wearing heeled boots to work may seem risque. However, with tights and a modest hem, they will look downright chic.  

Duchess Pick: Aquatalia Rhumba Boot  $418

The chunky heel and suede material keep this boot out of hooker territory and solidly in the comfortable, cool weather category.
