She knows she looks good.

Kate Middleton has a real eye for a classic fashion look. As the Duchess of Cambridge and future Queen Consort, she tends to wear lots of solid colors and clean lines with her hair left down, timeless dresses and coats and low heels to make her royal duties a bit easier on her feet. And she is really passing her stylish eye on to her one and only daughter, 6-year-old Princess Charlotte, whose dresses over the years are a master class in timeless comfort. Also she tends to accessorize with little bows in her hair, cute shoes, tights, and cardigans. What is cuter than that?

Ever since Princess Charlotte’s arrival in May 2015, she has been charming royal watchers all over the world. The only daughter of Prince William and Kate Middleton, the younger sister of future King of England, 8-year-old Prince George and older sister of 3-year-old Prince Louis, she has managed to hold her own as a real personality. And a teeny tiny fashion icon, particularly when it comes to her dresses. Pastels in summer, rich jewel tones in winter, plaids and gingham and bows abound. She knows how to wear a dress for every occasion.
