One must never underestimate the power of a white shirt or blouse, for that matter. It all depends on how you manipulate it, as the Duchess of Sussex has shown us many times. This is one of the simplest fashion hacks but a very effective one. Markle simply rolls up her sleeves in a symmetrical manner, and the outfit instantly looks classier.
For the 2019 Wimbledon Championship, Markle wore a white blouse with rolled-up sleeves and a cream-colored skirt. It’s effortless but very chic and perfect for a tennis match. So, girls, make sure you have a nice white shirt hanging in your closet, and if you don’t, now is the time to go out and get one.
Gin Is the Perfect Diamond Cleaner
They say diamonds are a girl’s best friend, and the late Queen Elizabeth II had a lot of best friends, and they were all very loyal to her until her last days. The collection of diamonds at Buckingham Palace is astonishing, and so her team of dressers had to figure out a way to make them sparkle.
Keeping diamonds clean is no easy job, especially when each piece of jewelry has that many, but luckily, the Queen’s aides discovered that a combination of water and gin keeps the precious stone shining bright. Above, the Queen is wearing an astounding diamond and pearl crown, earrings, and necklace in 1980.
Look for Smudge-Proof Eyeliner
Leave it to Kate to have a great fashion hack when it comes to eye makeup. She is often seen wearing very dark eyeliner, but it’s never overbearing or too opaque. The secret? Use a gel formula eyeliner instead of the regular pencil format. The gel seals in better with the skin, helping it to stay in place for longer.
The trick is proven to work since Kate has never been caught with runny makeup, no matter how many hours she’s been at an event. Above, we see the Duchess at the Royal Academy of the Arts in London, wearing a flawless face.
A Coat Is a Must
Kate Middleton’s status as a fashion icon is indisputable. Every outfit is on point, from the dress and accessories to the fashionable coats we love dearly. Besides fashion envy, Kate’s coats always spark conversation when she's photographed wearing one. British royal protocol considers it unladylike for senior female royals to remove a coat in public, so Middleton is lucky her fashion statement has turned into a palace obligation.
You can be sure the weather calls for a coat. The coat must stay on for public engagements, no matter the circumstance. This coat regulation is all about tradition. It's part of their attire, and this is what's expected from them, and boy does she look good in it.
Wearing a Tiara
For most of us, tiaras are whimsical accessories. Most royals nowadays wear their first tiara on their wedding day, which wasn't the case a few decades ago. Princess Margaret rocked tiaras everywhere, from dinner parties to theater shows, and turned them into a real fashion symbol. Now, we know we cannot just get our hands on one, but if we could, wouldn't it make a great accessory?
Whether one is a born royal or marrying into the family, the women wait until their wedding to wear one. It is a tradition, and the bride, being blood-related or marrying into the family, would never dare to go through her wedding without one.
