When in doubt for what to wear to a winter wedding, look to Kate Middleton. The bride-to-be and future Queen was chic and elegant at the wedding of friends Harry Aubrey-Fletcher and Louise Stourton in a top-to-toe black ensemble, with her plum accessories as the only splash of colour.
Black is perhaps not the most traditional shade to wear to a wedding but these days it’s increasingly more accepted and, quite frankly, Kate looks divine. From her pillbox hat (SO Jackie O) to her velvet frock coat (by Libelula) and bow-festooned courts, this is the image of a modern-day princess all dressed up.
We can’t wait to find out who will be commissioned to make the bridal gown for her 29 April nuptials to Prince William. Watch this space.
