Kate Middleton should start her own personal style blog in between mommy and princess duties because whether she slips into skinny jeans or an evening gown; the fashion world pays attention. I couldn’t help but notice after having baby George, she emerged from the hospital in a light blue polka dot sundress and I suddenly had an urge for the trend myself.
From her bouncy bold locks to her crisp tailored blazers, Kate knows how to add a royal dose of glam without going too far. Here’s my top 4 tips to channel your inner princess with pops of red and polka dots under the baby blue skies in Frankfurt, Germany…
1. Noble Red Lips ~ I’ve mentioned before Russian Red by MAC is my fave on occasion, but red lipstick is tricky. Buy a drugstore brand red lipliner and apply it first to make the lipstick last longer and look even.
2. Treat Your Crown to a Blowout ~ Prices in Frankfurt are surprisingly low for a blowout which got me thinking. Instead of splurging at a blowdry bar or high-end salon, check your neighborhood for a lower priced salon which is more convenient for last minute occasions. See if they offer blowouts and bring a pic of exactly what you want. You can still get your hair colored and cut at your main salon later.
3. A Royal Mix ~ Kate Middlton takes mini fashion risks. Try a striped top with a polka dot skirt or a patterned clutch in the same color family.
4. Stately Toes ~ Closed toe heels are common for fall, so find a comfortable pair you can wear in all weather conditions. It’s hard to ignore a classic red heel with any outfit, especially jeans, and I also love these statement floral print pumps.
