Months after celebrating her 40th birthday, Kate Middleton continues to shine. From the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee to polo matches with Prince William, Kate has shown off her classic yet effortless style throughout the summer season.
As Meghan Markle made stylish appearances throughout the U.S. with husband Prince Harry, across the pond, the Duchess of Cambridge turned heads at U.K. events like Wimbledon, where the “Kate Effect” was in full swing. Sporting a series of bright and colorful center court dresses by some of her favorite designers like Alessandra Rich and Emilia Wickstead, the Duchess showcased the masterful art of rocking a chic summer dress.
In addition to dresses, Kate has accessorized her stylish summer looks with everything from sleek Gianvito Rossi pumps to the perfect polo match flats and her go-to Castañer canvas wedges — which the Duchess recently proved can be worn for fashion or fun during her recent visit to the Cambridgeshire Newmarket Racecourse, where she displayed her kickball skills while wearing the popular shoes.
And in classic “Kate Effect” fashion, a lot of the Duchess’s summer pieces sold out almost instantly after the royal stepped out in a certain look. But lucky for you — whether you missed out on nabbing some of Kate’s springy pieces from her Caribbean tour back in March or trying to snag her coveted Vampire’s Wife official portrait dress — we’ve rounded up a selection of pieces that the Duchess has donned this summer for you to add to your wardrobe.
Below, shop some of Kate’s standout summer staples, so you too can add some royal flair to your summer stylings. But don’t wait too long or the “Kate Effect” will take hold on these items, too.
