When it comes to Royal fashion icons, countless unforgettable style moments come to mind from the past couple of years alone! Therefore, to celebrate the most iconic of these fashionable triumphs, we’ve put together a list of the must-see looks from the trendiest Royals around the world. We’ve also made sure to include some affordable alternatives to re-create their closets for yourself!
Her Royal Highness The Duchess Of Cambridge’s Polka Dot Maxi Dress
Top of our list just had to be the one and only, Kate Middleton! A style icon for the modern Royal age, Duchess Kate continually delivers an endless stream of the most classically beautiful outfits. We’re eternally in awe of her closet which is a brilliant mix of both designer and lesser know, non-designer brands.
If you’re looking for Royal style inspiration that includes pieces you can actually get your hands on at a reasonable price, Kate should definitely be your new style crush. You’ll have to act quickly though as every time she is photographed in a ‘high street’ brand, the item is sure to be snapped up by like-minded fashion lovers in a matter of minutes!
Now, we know that Kate has a love of designer brands such as Emilia Wickstead, Alexander McQueen, and Jenny Packham. However, the duchess also loves to include more affordable pieces in her rotation from the likes of & Other Stories, Reiss, and Topshop!
Though unsurprisingly, the majority of Kates’s past looks have now sold out online, we’ve found some remarkably similar alternatives you’ll want to add to your closet immediately! To style your look on this stunning polka dot maxi dress look, we suggest the shirred waist polka dot maxi dress by New Look!
Additionally, try the Ditsy floral print ruffle trim maxi dress by Shein to replicate Kate’s & Other Stories dress she wore at an appearance in London earlier this year. Alternatively, try the Reclaimed Vintage inspired smock maxi dress from Asos for those must-have vintage vibes!
Lady Amelia Windsor’s Over-Sized Shirt Dress
Lady Amelia Windsor is 39th in line for the British throne, but many know her more for her incredible sense of style and inspiring Instagram Feed! In addition to her social media efforts, Lady Amelia is also a professional model signed to Storm Models, the same agency as Kate Moss and Cara Delevingne! Since signing, she has gone onto work with brands such as Bvlgari, and Dolce & Gabanna.
Whether you’re an avid fan of Lady Amelia’s closet or this is your first introduction, we guarantee you’re about to fall in love with every single item she wears! Just take a look at this stunning, over-sized floral shirt dress that she’s expertly styled with a pair of heeled, pastel pink clogs!
We’ve made it a priority to put a form of this outfit together as soon as possible! And, the stunning Cleo tiered floral fil-coupe shirt dress by Cecile Bahnsen is an excellent near match. For something more affordable, however, we’re starting out with the Polka dot midi shirt dress by Fashion Union!
Next, we plan on pairing it up with these chic Leather Mules from Nordstrom. They’ll look absolutely perfect with this look and will also be a staple addition to your shoe rotation thanks to their elegantly neutral shade. Now to find the perfect box bag…
Her Royal Highness Princess Sirivannavari Nariratana Of Thailand’s White Midi Dress
To say that Princess Sirivannavari is as talented as she is stylish would be the understatement of the century! In fact, her fashion line, Sirivannavari, was so incredibly successful that Balmain asked her to present the label’s debut collection at Paris Fashion Week back in 2007. The princess has also featured in Elle Thailand and Vogue Thailand, she’s an award-winning equestrian, a badminton player, and a poet!
It goes without saying that we’re as in awe of Princess Sirivannavari’s clothing designs as we are with her personal fashion choices. This stunning white dress, for example, couldn’t be more perfect for an evening event or dinner date! If you’re hoping to try the look for yourself, take a look at the Prairie on white long sleeve midi dress by Lulu’s! This stunning dress is a fraction of the cost but is sure to fulfill all of your floaty white midi dress dreams! You’re sure to feel like a princess the moment you slip it on.
Lady Kitty Spencer’s Perfect Floral Mini Dress
You’ll probably know Lady Kitty Spencer best for being the niece of Princess Diana and first cousin to Prince Harry and Prince William. That said, Lady Kitty has also made a name for herself as a hugely successful model in the high fashion industry. She’s walked the runway for Dolce & Gabbana at both their Christmas show (2017) and Milan Fashion week (2018). She even featured as the face of jewelry brand, Bvlgari in 2018.
Pictured here in one of her many enviable dress looks, Lady Kitty stuns in a Zimmermann mini whilst on vacation in Capri last year. Though this dress is, unfortunately, no longer available on the brand’s website, we did manage to find this stunning High Neck Floral mini dress by Nasty Gal that’s sure to fill that feminine floral void in your closet!
We also suggest following Lady Kitty on Instagram for even more high fashion tips and style inspirations!
Charlotte Casiraghi Of Monaco’s Floral Embroidered Gown (Daughter Of Princess Caroline Of Hanover)
Though Charlotte holds no official royal title, she is eleventh in line for the throne as the daughter of Stefano Casiraghi and Caroline Marie Pomeline Casiraghi, Princess Of Hanover. Some may actually know Charlotte better as the granddaughter of screen star and fashion icon, Grace Kelly, and she’s certainly inherited her flawless sense of classic style.
In addition to her grandmother’s timeless beauty, Charlotte has also inherited her work ethic! A published writer and successful magazine editor, Charlotte is frequently seen on the world’s most prestigious red carpets wearing pieces by Stella McCartney, Karl Lagerfeld, Chanel, and more.
We’re in awe of this gorgeous silk tulle Gucci dress that Charlotte wore to the Women In Motion awards back in 2017. That’s why we fully intend on re-creating this unforgettable style moment in the beautiful (and considerably more affordable!) Summer Floral embroidered maxi dress by Asos Edition. Slip this on with a colorful pair of heels to seamlessly emphasize the details within the dress.
Pauline Ducruet’s Denim Shirt And Shorts Combination
It seems the style gene most certainly runs in the family as the next lady on our list is also the granddaughter of screen legend, Grace Kelly! Cousin to Charlotte Casiraghi, Pauline is fast becoming one of our favorite Royal family members when it comes to style inspiration.
We’re quite frankly obsessed with this particular outfit and are sure you will be too! If so, you can call off the search for the perfect denim shirt to tuck into every pair of shorts, every pair of jeans, and every skirt that you own because we’ve already found it for you! The super-simple yet stylish Blue denim shirt by Only is about to become a wardrobe staple that you’ll reach for again and again. Better yet, it’ll work perfectly throughout every season as it’s so versatile and can be layered both over and under other pieces!
We adore its classic western style, point collar, and flattering chest pockets with press-stud fastenings. Once it’s in your closet, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without it! Desperate for those shorts too? Treat yourself to a gorgeous pair of khaki Sterling Shorts by Reformation to complete the look!
Queen Rania Of Jordon’s Graphic Tee And Midi Skirt
Any round-up of most fashion royals around the world is likely to include the ultra-fashionable Queen Rania Of Jordan. Queen Rania is always chic and forever making us feel as though we need to throw out any and every casual clothing piece we own in place of sleeker ones!
This rare yet stunning image of the Queen wearing a printed graphic tee is most definitely one of our all-time favorites. The print featured on the t-shirt is of her husband King Abdullah II and their son, Crown Prince Al Hussein. We also so adore how she has paired it with a chic and colorful midi skirt.
Take inspiration from Queen Rania and get your hands on the Audrey Hepburn & Marilyn Monroe graphic Tee by Shein. Though it may not feature actual royalty, this pair is certainly fashion royalty in our eyes! To complete the look, why not opt for a blue midi skirt to tuck your shirt in to? We’re opting for the stunning Slipped My Mind Satin Midi by Nasty Girl for sure!
Princess Sofia, Duchess Of Varmland’s Floaty Floral Dress
She was once a model and reality television star but these days, Princess Sofia of Sweden is one of the world’s classiest and most stylish royals! Sofia is often spotted wearing florals and this particular snap is one of our faves. From its classic summery print and V-neckline to the long sleeves and statement flared cuffs, it has everything we need in a warm-weather dress.
Follow Princess Sofia’s lead and update your summer closet with some long-sleeved floral dress like the Carolita magenta long sleeve maxi dress by Lulu’s! We adore its vibrant print and long sleeves that are very similar to Sofia’s. Alternatively, if it’s those statement cuffs and print that you just can’t get enough of, opt for the stunning floral-print midi dress by Michael Kors. It’s a pretty close match for Sofia’s actual dress and is perfect for summer and even fall when styled with boots!
Her Royal Highness The Duchess Of Cambridge’s Belted White Midi Dress
We all love those classic staple dresses we can quickly throw on and make ourselves feel instantly elegant and it seems Duchess Kate feels the same! Who could forget this incredible belted midi dress she wore to Wimbledon a few years back? Not us! We’ve admired it all this time and have finally found a dress that we think fits the bill. The White puff sleeve button through midi dress by Missguided!
This stunning white dress has a contrasting button through front, a defined waistline, and a midi-length skirt. Everything we love about Kate’s flawless dress. Not to mention, it’s a fraction of the cost. Simply add a thin waist belt into the mix, give your hair those signature soft curls, and you’ll be getting mistaken for the Duchess herself!
Lady Amelia Windsor’s Boho-Chic Midi Dress And Boots
As with Duchess Kate, we just couldn’t resist including another entry for Lady Amelia. This gorgeous outfit is screaming out to be re-created for fall and we intend to deliver the goods for you to make it your own!
The Metallic thread midi dress by Mango is ideal for re-creating Lady Amelia’s must-have look! Not only does it offer that perfect midi length, but also the V-neckline, cuffed long sleeves, and a dreamy shade of deep purple! Style this with a simple pair of black Chelsea boots like this gorgeous pair by H&M, and you’re all set!
That said, we can’t forget about the finishing touch! With that in mind, we think the Bolo soft leather crossbody bag by Target is absolutely perfect to top of your new (borrowed) look! Also, as handbags go, it’s one of our top picks for versatility throughout the seasons.
