29 Days of Kate Middleton Day 4

Day 4

So Kate isn't one for all over prints, especially floral, but she pulls it off well. Now many people have said, she dresses to matronly or she looks like a grandmother and should show more skin. But what if she isn't into showing skin? What if showing legs and arms is just enough for her? And it's easy to floral prints if done the right way. For spring and summer you have to be on your toes not to go over board, or else you'll blend right in with the print on your dress! Wearing short sleeve or sleeveless dresses go well with floral prints, for the neckline having a V-neck, boat neck, or a scoop neck also works. You don't want to have the dress length ankle length, unless it's a maxi dress, for floral print it should at least be right below the knee or right above the knee or 1-1 1/2inches above the knee. Having a mini floral print dress just doesn't work. As seen above, Kate has worked this look well in the first picture, wearing a cute light colored cardigan with that dress goes well. This is wear the complaints of matronly come in, but what if it was chilly outside? And from the second picture, it's obvious that wearing a cardigan to a friend's wedding party is appropriate, as to not show too much skin. I'm not one for kitten heels but if you don't want to wear flats and you're not a heel person, then kitten flats work, they're 1 1/2-2inches high and they give you a little bit of height, even if you're tall this can work, because you're wearing a heel but not a tall one. Simple hair, like Kate's will do, her favorite white bag works as well. Once again, casual but chic.

*Day 4 Princess Wedding-Princess Margaret May 6, 1960

Princess Margaret, the sister of Queen Elizabeth II (Prince William's grandmother) wore this beautiful silk wedding gown designed by Norman Hartnell. She looked ever so beautiful in it. I have to say this wedding dress fit the time of 1960, and the look Dior's "New Look" with a full bust, cinched waist, and full hips. This is one of my favorite dresses, right up there with Princess Diana and Princess Grace.
