Preppy Style Icon #3

The next recipient of the esteemed Preppy Style Icon award is the future Queen of England, Kate Middleton. She has fabulous personal style - even her name screams prep! Whether attending a royal wedding in an amazing hat or rocking a tweed blazer on her way to work, she always looks put-together and classically stylish.



Have I mentioned that I am obsessed with this look? I am....




Have I mentioned that I love this coat? I do....





I think all ladies should band together and make fabulous hats mandatory for American weddings. Who's with me?

I adore her style! She always looks so put-together and chic. That jacket is to die for, too.

I really like her style casual yet totally chic! She manages to look elegant in knee high boots and jeans which I love.

Just love her style. Classic but relaxed in a sort of way. She seems so down to earth.

Agreed! Kate is great! Also, I am right there with you in terms of fab hats for weddings. How much more fun would that make the experience for everyone? (Imagine the pictures!)

I agree, I am obsessed.

Plus, she dresses chic, even for a "new money" kind of gal!

You are so right! Everytime I see her in the press she just looks so casually fabulous! And I agree about the hats ... I used to look forward to my sorority Polo event every year to rock a great hat. My last year the Polo event didn't happen and I had brought back an insane hate from England in preparation ... tres depressing! But I have already decided for the next bridal shower I throw it is going to incorporate great hats!!
