Copy Kate Middleton’s lockdown look

If there's one person who’s got the ‘waist-up-dressing’ trend nailed during lockdown, it’s the Duchess of Cambridge. From bold and bright colours to statement prints and patterns, Kate Middleton has given us all a lesson in how to dress to impress during her various Zoom interviews and video calls over the last few weeks.

Similar to the rainbow motifs that have been used as symbols of support for the NHS, Kate has been dressing in a whole spectrum of colourful shades.

We’ve rounded up five of the Duchess' most memorable Zoom looks to date and the styling tips and tricks she’s taught us along the way…

Add a splash of colour…

One way to wow your work colleagues or friends on-screen is with a chic knit in a standout shade. Kate wore this colourful past-season Zara jumper whilst paying a virtual visit to staff and children at Castleton Primary Academy.

Jumper, £9, Very.co.uk

Kate’s top is no longer available to buy, however you can still steal her style with this similar balloon-sleeved mustard knit from V by Very. Why not follow her lead and accessorize with a pair of gold floral earrings to finish off the look?

Go dotty for statement prints…

Go dotty for statement prints…

Loud and proud prints are the perfect way to add interest, especially when your backdrop is a plain white wall. Kate’s spotty dress is a welcome reminder that you can’t go wrong with polka dots; a classic pattern that never dates and will work whatever the season.

Kate’s pick of colour is also well considered; not only is cornflour blue the shade of the season, it’s also the main hue found in a UK nurse’s uniform so was an apt wardrobe choice for a video call on International Nurses Day.

Throw on a do-it-all dress…

Duchess of Cambridge

We’ve already mentioned in previous fashion features how an easy breezy dress is the ideal item for quarantine and it seems as if the memo reached Kensington Palace. For a virtual appearance on This Morning, Kate wore a whimsical yellow maxi by designer label, Raey.

Think pink!

Duchess of Cambridge

Kate’s latest looks have had a fruity feel to them as she’s donned dresses in raspberry red and strawberry pink shades, elevating a sophisticated feminine style that she’s become well renowned for.

From the romantic rosebud prints on her Beulah silk dress to the speckled pink patterns featured on her L.K. Bennett frock, these pretty summer pieces are perfect whether you’re picnicking in the park or getting dressed up for a lockdown date night.

Never under estimate a classic…

Duchess of Cambridge

We think it’s fair to say the Duchess of Cambridge is a big Breton fan; over the years she has been snapped wearing pretty much every style of stripe and colour combo going and her obsession with this classic wardrobe staple hasn’t stopped since lockdown. During a Zoom interview with the BBC, Kate kept her look simple yet stylish with a navy and white stripy knit.
