Kate Middleton's Capsule Shoe Wardrobe Is The Perfect Spring Collection
If there's one royal who you can rely on for fashion inspo that will never go out of style, it's the famously chic Duchess of Cambridge. At the root of her elegant aesthetic are a few timeless staples that she wears over and over again (haven't you noticed?). Kate Middleton's capsule spring shoe wardrobe is something you really should start paying attention to, for your own good.
When this duchess finds something she likes, she sticks to it. She keeps her style classic, never too risky (probably so she doesn't get into trouble with the Queen), and yet she somehow still manages to surprise even the most royal-savvy with her trendy looks.
Because being a duchess requires her to get into all kinds of diverse activities — from pouring pints in Ireland to playing soccer with a bunch of kids in Belfast — Middleton needs her shoe collection to be up for anything.
Wedges for picnicking in the park with Prince George and Princess Charlotte, statement pumps for the standard public appearance, and durable boots on the occasion that she has to get her hands dirty — there's a different shoe for every version of the duchess.
To help you emulate the royal's shoe game, ahead, the footwear Kate Middleton relies on the most.
There's hardly anything the duchess loves more than a pair of wedges on a hot summer day. She's been spotted picnicking with the family in adorable dresses and heeled espadrilles and, just recently, she repeatedly wore a pair by Castañer to the Chelsea Flower Show.
Middleton's favorite Superga sneakers have become a famous staple in her casual wardrobe. Anytime she has an outdoorsy obligation — cheering on runners at the London Marathon and walking around the streets of Heidelberg, Germany, to name a few — these canvas trainers are her secret weapon.
Suede Pumps In Statement Colors
When it comes time to get dressed up, the royal rarely leaves her palace without a pair of suede, pointed-toe pumps in bright colors. She owns these Emmy London Rebecca heels in a slew of hues, for instance. Typically opting for monochrome but occasionally mixing and matching (or going for a bedazzled version), these wear-with-anything pumps are a must-have for Middleton's impeccable style.
The key to keeping chic while she's out trekking along the beach or visiting parks and gardens around Britain is a good pair of riding boots. The duchess' favorites are a pair by Penelope Chilvers that she's kept in rotation for more than 13 years.
