Kate Middleton Is Champion of the Match Game

Aug 17 2014 - 10:00am

What goes better with a pretty dress than a posh royal? How about shoes and heels to match. Kate Middleton has already conquered the coat [1] and hat game, but true to her family's lineage [2], she's mastered yet another skill that's made us take notice: the art of coordination.

Once put down for being too rigid, the matchy-matchy [3] aesthetic has gotten a major vote of confidence from the Duchess, who has worn shoes to match her dress, bags to match her heels, and everything in between (can you say coat-and-fascinator set? She sure did). So we're bowing to Kate's most excellent wardrobe harmony and awarding her a medal of coordination for the following looks.

Kate was in the navy when she paired her nautical ensemble with deep blue pumps and a clutch.

Take that poppies! A red field of ceramic buds was no match for the dynamism of this well-coordinated outfit.

Yes, she matched her scarlet hat to her coat, but did you notice she also paired her heels and bag?

Once again, Kate taught us that some is good, but more is better when she coordinated her beloved Stuart Weitzman wedges [4] to her clutch and her graphic print.

Still, more subtle combinations have no less impact, as Kate proved with her nude accessories and poppy sheath.

Call it a coincidence, but even the ball matched this blue look.

And while William may be her finest accessory, his rich suiting was no match for the loveliness of Kate's neutral ensemble.
