The Middleton sisters tend to lean on a small number of British high-street brands again and again, including Whistles, Reiss and L.K.Bennett. However, there's an American label that they couldn't stop wearing this year—Kate Spade. On Pippa Middleton's honeymoon in the summer, she was photographed wearing a striped beach dress and a blue-and-white sundress by Kate Spade, and wore several of its tweed coats and jackets in the lead up to her wedding.
Her sister, the Duchess of Cambridge, is also a fan of Kate Spade, as this year she has worn a printed midi dress by the brand and a pair of statement red tassel earrings. It's a natural pairing, given you'll find plenty of pearl accessories, nude pumps, pretty dresses and tweed—all the makings of a very Middleton outfit.
