If you’re a regular reader of Who What Wear, you’re probably well acquainted with Kate Middleton’s wardrobe. She dresses pretty classically, but occasionally she’ll surprise us with something a bit different. The list of the designers she often turns to is pretty definite: often Alexander McQueen and Jenny Packham and occasionally Erdem, Emilia Wickstead, and Roksanda. But it’s not just the more expensive end of the spectrum she’s a fan of. She regularly wears high-street pieces from a range of brands, from Superga sneakers to & Other Stories dresses. But, and I’m going to put my stake in the ground here, her favorite store has to be Zara.
For years she’s worn pieces from the high-street brand and always makes them look super expensive. She recently attended a Euros game with Prince William and Prince George and she wore a red tweed Zara jacket—her version of a football shirt.
This made me wonder about all the other times that she’s worn the Spanish mega-brand and the pieces she always wears over all the others. My theory is that she always shops for the basics so they look more expensive. But then when it comes to accessories, she’ll always go a bit more left-field and experiment. Keep scrolling for your guide to shopping at Zara like Kate Middleton.
