I have been on a lookout for smart and well-cut dresses to expand my “corporate” wardrobe. And since Kate Middleton has been wearing a number of sophisticated dresses (most of them are with three-quarter sleeves), I thought we could all take a leaf out of her book.

Two different grey dresses: Amanda Wakeley dress with Alexander McQueen belt, Orla Keily dress with Episode shoes.

I love these two Alexander McQueen dresses, especially the monochrome military styled dress on the left. The lace dress is a classy piece which we can easily find similar ones from the high street brands.

For casual Friday. Breezy dresses from Jenny Peckham (left) and Libelula (right) paired with nude shoes.

Few points that I noted:

1. A pair of classic black pumps take you everywhere. I guess that is one more reason for us to buy that pair of Christian Louboutin?

2. It is fine to wear sombre colours (such as grey), but try to inject some pizzazz with accessories, such as a statement belt, big necklace or even a simple brooch.

3. I noticed that Duchess Kate wore beige stockings to official events. I hardly wear beige stockings, only those in brighter colours or with simple patterns. But I think I’m going to start following Kate Middleton to adopt the more “ladylike approach”. What about you – are beige stockings yay or nay?

Given that it’s still the sale season – both online and offline – this is the perfect time to start procuring essential items for our wardrobes! There were so much frocks on sale at Dorothy Perkins, Topshop, Warehouse and the likes…

美丽的事物看得太多,往往造成太大的诱惑,购买之后又发现没有机会或场合派上用场。因此,本人认为,应该根据自己的需要购买适当的物品,以理性的思维承托内心的欲望。最近,我觉得自己上班服饰好像一些单调。Kate Middleton 出席公众场合的服饰非常典雅高贵,适合我们这些上班族。借此分享一些她所选择的服饰,让大家有些购物灵感。除了需要注意连衣裙的剪裁以及布料, 本人发现经典黑色高跟鞋的配搭是不可或缺的。还有,Kate Middleton颇喜欢配搭肤色丝袜,我也想跃跃一试,效仿她。
