Using outfits that cinch the waist is always a good option for a flattering figure, like the one Kate Middleton is wearing below during the royal Australia and New Zealand tour of 2014. This does not mean you have to have a fuller body to enjoy this beauty tip. Even petite women like Middleton herself prove that just because you are slim doesn’t mean you are in perfect shape.
Designed by the famous Diane Von Furstenberg, this Ikat wrap dress with a cinch at the waist is casual and elegant at the same time. The navy blue and white patterns go lovely with Kate’s hairdo and smile.
Don’t Forget to Curl Your Eyelashes
This next beauty tip is one that we believe all women should adopt. When your eyelashes are in perfect state, the whole face lights up, and you don't have to be royal to have a glamorous look. Even when you don’t have a drop of makeup on, the right eyelashes can make a huge difference. To enhance a royal lady's lashes, the curler is the best way to go.
Meghan Markle always seems to have beautiful big eyelashes, like in the photo above where she attended the Invictus Games at The Hague in 2022. Markle uses the Shu Uemura eyelash curler and Dior Show mascara. For the rest of us mortals, any mascara by Maybelline will do the trick!
The Coat and Dress Match
For those who didn’t know, it is frowned upon for royals to remove coats in public. If you leave the house (or palace) with it, it will stay on until you return. So, what does one do to combine fashion and functionality? One goes for the coatdress hybrid. Aside from being incredibly regal and elegant, the coatdress keeps skirts from flying up in the wind. It’s a win-win.
Above we see the Duchess of Cambridge wearing a plaid blue and green coatdress with a chic belt while visiting Scotland. She looks super classy and is probably warm and cozy in that long coat.
Avoiding Hair Dents
Here is another great hair tip suited for simple people like us, too. We’ve all had that annoying moment when we think we’ve tied the perfect high ponytail, and suddenly, we see an ugly bump of hair on the top of our head. This is precisely why you see Meghan Markle wearing so many loose, low buns.
The Duchess of Sussex avoids annoying hair dents by wearing a bun during the day and letting it down in the evening. By nighttime, her bun has created natural, gorgeous waves. Markle is seen above at a polo match in Windsor in 2018, wearing her signature bun hairstyle.
Create Iconic Fashion Looks
Fashion is often a means of making a statement when it comes to the royal family. Since they are not known for being too vocal, one of the best ways to communicate is through their outfit. What they choose to wear can reflect not only the event they are attending but also the mood they are in and their overall feeling. Unlike in the past, these days, the royal can give their say as to what they are going to wear.
Above, the Duchess of Cambridge looks stunning in a Prada dress covered in poppy prints. A very subtle detail, as the poppy is the flower of remembrance, and the Duchess wore this to her mother-in-law’s 20th anniversary memorial service in the White Garden at Kensington Palace.
