Always perfectly polished, we decode the Duchess of Cambridge’s flawless maternity style
Floral prints are perennially chic. Take inspiration from the Duchess and pick an abstract pattern for a modern take on a classically feminine look. Prabal Gurung’s elastic-waist, chiffon dress comes stamped with a graphic flower motif – team it with sharp black heels for an edgy finish.
Pregnancy is the ideal excuse to have fun with fashion. Kate’s nautical print shift is a witty wink to the fact that she was attending a sailing charity engagement. Be inspired by her playful style in Joseph’s paisley-print design.
Pale pink and powder blue are hues Kate Middleton favours during pregnancy. These soft tones convey ladylike elegance. Look to designer 3.1 Phillip Lim’s smocked trousers and guipure lace top for timeless sophistication.
Maternity wear doesn’t have to be demure. Three months pregnant, the Duchess wore one of her most daring outfits to date, a sheer, panelled dress by Temperley London. Shake up your expectant look with peek-a-boo detailing. Alexander Wang’s perforated pencil skirt is both sexy and cool.
A floor-sweeping dress always makes an impression, something the Duchess knows well. Take the sky-blue Jenny Packham gown she wore to her first evening event after announcing she was expecting. For a show-stopping maternity look turn to Marni’s colour-block maxi.
