A Year In Fashion

2014 was a huge year for William and Kate. They celebrated Prince George’s first birthday, took a two-week tour of New Zealand and Australia, announced that royal baby #2 is on the way, and wound up the year with a trip to NYC!

Of course, we cannot talk about Kate Middleton without talking about her wardrobe! As the new year begins, I want to look back at Kate’s best looks from 2014. Since she always looks ahh-mazing, you can imagine how hard it was to narrow down.

I chose 16 of my favorite outfits that the Duchess wore in 2014 and ranked them.

Enjoy!

16-Beulah London--1616. Beulah London “Amara” dress

Kate made her way to a private reception in NYC wearing this gorgeous dress. She paired the dress with black, suede Stuart Weitzman heels.

15-Catherine Walker (Macarons and Bubbly)--1515. Catherine Walker Coat Dress

This was the very first outfit we saw Kate in as she arrived to start her tour in New Zealand. Looks like Kate stole a play from the Jackie O playbook with that pillbox hat. Classic!

14-Séraphine (Who What Wear)--14
14. Séraphine Turtleneck Dress

As a girl who loves turtlenecks, I absolutely love this dress. Simple but sophisticated. Also, what better way to jazz up a $99 dress than with an $80,000 Cartier necklace? That’s right— $80,000!

13-Jaeger (Daily Mail)--13
13. Jaeger dress

Kate definitely knows how to find a bargain. She snagged this dress for only £99. That is one (of the many) things I admire about her. She wears high-end pieces as well as affordable pieces as well.

12-Emilia Wickstead (Macarons and Bubbly)--1212. Emilia Wickstead teal coat dress

Kate rocks this beautiful pleated coat dress on one of her stops during her New Zealand/Australia tour. Also, that fascinator goes perfectly with her ensemble! Can you say regal?

11-Mulberry (NY Post)--1111. Mulberry coat

Kate brightened up the big apple in this gorgeous pink Mulberry coat during December. You can’t even tell she is pregnant!

10-Goat (BIAF)--1010. Goat coat

This classic coat by Goat was also worn while the Duke and Duchess were in NYC. You can never go wrong with all black!

9-Jenny Packham (NY Post)--99. Jenny Packham Ink Blue Dress

So this is the third time we have seen Kate in this dress…and she looks better every time! This dress is absolutely gorgeous! She truly looks like royalty here!

8-DVF (Entertainment Wise)
8. Diane von Furstenburg Wrap Dress

When looking at this picture, I have serious fashion and hair envy. This dress is so versatile and looks amazing!

7-Tory Burch (The Dishh)--77. Tory Burch “Bettina” coat

This coat is a classic. As you can see, Kate dressed the coat down with a pair of black skinny jeans and black pumps, but could have easily dressed it up as well. She wore this coat while meeting Chelsea and Hillary Clinton as well as Jay-Z and Beyonce.

6-Zimmerman (InStyle)--6
6. Zimmerman dress

This dress screams summertime! The beautiful white lace looks stunning on the Duchess. Her cork wedges by Stuart Weitzman go perfectly with this ensemble.

5-Lela Rose--55. Lela Rose dress

Okay, so…I think we all can agree that the Duchess can rock the color white. Here is Kate on the last day of her NZ/Australia tour in a white Lela Rose dress.

4-Alexander McQueen (Macarons and Bubbly)--44. Alexander McQueen ensemble

This is one of my fave outfits that Kate has ever worn. I just love the light pink color and the peplum top! Kate paired this outfit with her infamous LK Bennett “Sledge” pumps.

3-Alexander McQueen (cream, InStyle)--3
3. Alexander McQueen Coat

Here is Kate in an ivory Alexander McQueen coat. First of all, I love Peter Pan collars, so I was automatically drawn to this coat. Second of all, I love peplum, and (although it is hard to see) this coat has peplum detailing at the waist. Also, the pleats are great too. All around, this coat is a winner!

2-DVF --2
2. Diane von Furstenburg “Zarita” dress

So this dress is another one of my all-time favorites! The lace detailing is simply stunning. The Duchess screams royalty in this beautiful DVF dress. Can I please have one??

Royal Tour of New Zealand and Australia-Day 14
1. Alexander McQueen dress and coat

I think we can all agree that Alexander McQueen can do no wrong! All of his creations that the Duchess wears are absolutely classic and regal. This might be my favorite Alexander McQueen outfit that she has ever worn (apart from her wedding dress). This ensemble was worn while attending an Easter service in New Zealand. I love how clean this outfit looks. Kate looks just like a future Queen here— classy and regal.

Thanks for reading! Hope you enjoyed my blog and will visit again! 🙂
