It's Official: Kate Middleton Has Mastered All of Winter's Top Trends

I'm not sure whether Kate Middleton's style is getting trendier lately or if the current products on offer all happen to be inspired by the duchess. Either way, the royal's fashion sense has never been more current and I can't help but feel impressed at her willingness to try all of winter's top trends. Since royal style skews conservative, there's a plentiful list of items Middleton, Meghan Markle and every other British royal can't wear, and consequently, the list rules out a number of trends.

So, you can imagine my surprise and delight to discover Middleton's getting behind five of the biggest winter trends. From styling a cropped cardigan just like all the fashion girls to accessorising with pretty headgear that mirrors everything we're seeing on Instagram, Kate officially just became our winter trend style muse. Naturally, she pulled off them all off with the polished style she's known for. Keep reading to see the winter trends Kate Middleton has nailed, and then shop our royalty-approved picks...
