These Kate Middleton-Inspired Shoe Staples Are Perfect For Warm Weather

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.

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.
