Kate Has 5 New Favorite Accessories, and They're So Fashion

Some watch planes and others train-spot, but our pastime of choice is patiently waiting to see which delights Kate Middleton will serve up next. Of course, we've always been fans of her polished style, but there's no denying she's had her strongest string of looks over the last few months. 

From the on-trend Western boots she wore with skinny jeans to the very forward Alessandra Rich dress she wore in the royal family portraits, we can't find fault with any of her latest ensembles. However, the thing that's taken Kate's outfits to the next level is undoubtedly her new, more trend-forward accessories. 

Kate often finds comfort in minimal clutch bags, nude pumps, and simple jewels, but recently she's been experimenting with more directional extras, all of which just so happen to be perfect for party season, too.

Style Notes: Considering she normally wears simple studs, when Kate chose to don a pair of It girl–approved gold hoops, it was a subtle switch that made a big style impact.

Style Notes: As well as experimenting with bows, Kate took a bold sartorial step when she made her Alice band debut. Opting for a super-padded style, she's helped put headbands back on the map

Style Notes: Kate's love of classic pumps is well documented, though it seems, for party season, she's swapped her trademark neutrals in favor of Jimmy Choo's rich velvet iterations.
