RepliKate the Middleton Look
Wednesday - 09 September 2015
Catherine Duchess of Cambridge has a particular style which we all adore. Subtle, elegant and timeless – a little like the earrings that she adorns. The Royal Family member continues to impress us with her courage to brave the elements when out and about without the need for any professional makeup artists or fashion gurus to be by her side. Yes, Kate Middleton is certainly a “do it yourself” kind of girl. Her unique look as flawless as it always remains, makes us girls feel a little more human when it comes to taking pride in our appearance. We don’t have to shovel 3 inches of makeup onto our wonderfully natural complexions, or accidentally glue our eyelids together with a set of ridiculously long false lashes to achieve beauty. To embrace a natural allure we need to go simplistic – it really is as simplistic as that! Currently Kate Middleton has a huge worldwide audience who follow her every move, shop where she shops, even read about the very essentials that she would pack in her hospital baby bag! But one element that people find difficult to replicate is Kate’s gorgeous choice in jewellery. It’s not that the information isn’t out there.... her choice in £3400 Kiki McDonough Classics or 15k Robinson Pelham pear-shaped diamond set drops are not difficult to find. But whilst we can but ogle at her exquisite taste in the most beautiful of jewellery pieces, finding ways to imitate the elegance and sophistication found within these creations is a challenge in itself. That’s why we have come up with a guide of our own affordable substitutes to make cloning her sensational look effortless!
Let’s start with these dainty pink and white cubic Zirconia Ti Sento cushion earrings. http://www.cwsellors.co.uk/products/ti-sento-silver-with-pink-and-white-cz-cushion-drop-earrings-7555op.
The Duchess has been seen styling three pairs of Kiki McDonough Classic Cushion drop earrings in the past, the design which has evidentially become one of her favourites. These alternatives recreate the same clarity and straightforwardness which reflects her very presence when out in public. The pair can be purchased for £90 a considerable drop in price from the originals which Kate wears so beautifully.
Although Middleton enjoys incorporating colour into her jewellery pieces to compliment her vibrant outfits, she does carry the diamond looks exceptionally well. Simple again and encased within a delicate setting, we suggest these Hot Diamonds silver Stargazer Circle earrings for a reasonable £59.95 http://www.cwsellors.co.uk/collections/earrings/products/hot-diamonds-stargazer-circle-earrings.
The elegant five pave set signature diamonds represent everything that the future King’s wife stands for – low-key and tastefully understated.
Just recently Kate has been spotted styling a set of pear-shaped faceted Tanzanite stone earrings at the Solemn service held in St Paul’s Cathedral in Beulah, London to commemorate and honour those who served in Afghanistan. These alternative hand designed Tanzanite and diamond stud earrings feature a central trilliant cut claw set by pave diamonds inside an 18ct white gold frame. http://www.cwsellors.co.uk/products/tivon-tanzanite-and-diamond-earrings.
At £2095, the pair of elegant earrings hark back to one of William and Kate’s most favourite places – Africa.
Finally we finish with Kate’s admiration for Annoushka pearls! The striking beauty of her favoured pair set on their Eclipse 18ct yellow gold and diamond Poroupine hoop earrings can be worn in a similar style to this pair of Yoko Pearl and diamond earrings for £1410 http://www.cwsellors.co.uk/products/europearls-diamond-and-pearl-earrings-e146926-d12x80.
Transcending both time and fashion, pearls are the most effective way to replicate Kate Middleton’s style and beauty as they are lightweight and universally appealing. Traditionally classic, pearl earrings can be worn as Kate herself wears them, with minimal intervention and stark clarity.
