Style Lessons from the British Royal Family

The Royal Family continues to inspire our wardrobes all the way from across the pond!

The British style icons we love so much never cease to put together stylish ensembles. With Wimbledon just wrapping up, all eyes are focused across the pond! We recently blogged about how to dress like royalty for any occasion, and we’ve put together another style guide featuring looks from the Laura Ashley collection. Whether you prefer the countryside casual styles or formal attire seen at dinners and events, our style guide checks all the boxes!

The newly appointed Duchess of Sussex looks effortlessly chic in navy outerwear. Though it’s too warm for a heavy coat until cold weather arrives, a navy blazer is a great alternative that still reflects this trend.

A good pair of jeans makes for an obvious wardrobe staple, but consider a colourful pair of skinnies to replace the usual shades of denim seen all the time. A radiant red pair like Middleton appeared in is a unique take on a classic piece. Our version is a breathable cropped length so it works with sandals and espadrilles for the summer!

Watercolour florals are right on trend and add a feel of romance and femininity to your closet. Our take on this style features a sophisticated blue and white floral print in a flattering style that will stand out at garden parties or other summer events.

Speaking of patterns, plaid makes many appearances in the royal family. Princess Diana often donned a similar style of plaid that both Markle and Middleton have worn recently. A chic staple to any wardrobe, and a clear sign that plaid never goes out of style.

As elegant as always, Kate Middleton stepped out in a figure flattering fit and flare dress for an event with husband Prince William. We drew our inspiration from the brightness in her outfit as well as the silhouette, which resembles the Red Broderie Fit and Flare Dress.

Don’t worry – we didn’t forget about dreamy Prince Harry and Prince William! Their tailored suits and tasteful use of patterns is what helps their looks stand out. Our collection of menswear is classic and features a wide range of prints that are perfect for mixing and matching.
