You can never go wrong with floral, as Kate proved here when she was pictured in a Jenny Packham dress at a match at the Santa Barbara Polo and Racquet Club. We love the contrast in light, summery colours between the dress and the L.K. Bennett shoes.

Royal blue: Kate debuted this lace Erdem dress and L. K. Bennett shoes at a morning service aboard the HMCS Montreal in Champlain Harbor in Quebec. The bold blue is a very flattering color for The Duchess, and she is quite clearly fond of it as she wears it rather often!

British vs. American Style

by

As a British girl who has visited The States a number of times, I’ve noticed just how different American style compares to ours. From overalls to plaid shirts, leather jackets to brogues, here’s my lowdown on how British style contrasts to our friends across the pond.
British Casual:

  • Overalls

05P10FBLC_large      topshop-blue-moto-short-dungarees-product-1-17922860-1-746540881-normal_large_flex
I don’t know about other Brits, but I LOVE dungarees (overalls). When I visited America, my friends were surprised to see me wear them. What isn’t to love about overalls?! They’re comfy, cute, and they go with just about anything! Band t-shirts in particular are my favourite item to pair them with. You can find these on topshop.com.

  •    Pinafores

Similar to overalls, pinafores are another popular trend among Britons. Especially cute with knee high socks, pinafores are eligible to wear all year round, particularly floral patterned ones in Spring! www.lyst.com

  • Brogues

Brogues are my all time favourite shoe. Not only can you wear them during the day with a cute smock dress or the overalls I mentioned earlier, but you could rock a pair of T-bar flats with a smart/casual dress for a night out on the town or a fancy meal! topshop.com

  • Peter Pan collars

26D08JYLW_large topshop-contrast-dress-2
A favourite of mine, peter pan collars on t shirts, dresses or playsuits automatically make any outfit look adorable. Adding an element of class, collar dresses are perfect to wear during the summer to achieve that cute ‘girl next door’ look. misselfridge.com
American Casual:

  • Denim

image1xl  river-island-denim-denim-jacket-product-1-8108589-387484719
This is probably the fashion item I saw people wear the most, especially jackets! Denim is a great fashion accessory any can make any statement look casual. asos.com

  • Plaid Shirts

00137027-02  topshop-pink-oversize-check-shirt-product-1-16548240-0-050918481-normal_large_flex
 
Plaid checkered shirts teamed with denim shorts was a very popular choice of outfit I soon discovered when I visited the states. topshop.com

  • Leather jackets

11P01GBLK_2_large 11P34EBLK_large
 
Another popular fashion choice in the USA, especially to parties, the leather jacket can be combined with a pair of skinny jeans or denim shorts to create that edgy biker look. topshop.com

  • College Sweaters

31011602 img-thing
This may be stereotypical, but the amount of people I saw wearing university pullovers was unbelievable! In the UK, we don’t very often sell jumpers (sweatshirts) for our university’s, so it is rare to see someone wearing one. As a Brit, I love it! I think they give off the coolest vintage vibe. It’s great to be able to represent your university and be proud of it! polyvore.com
