Oh, the many footwear tips we can grasp via her highness from the Royal Tour that swept Canada last week! For starters, this princess isn’t afraid of wearing a pretty nude patent pump more than once. Why? Because they’re extremely versatile, make ones legs look miles-high (thanks to both the color and slight platform!) & of course, it doesn’t hurt that they’re ever-so-trendy this season, either…
Want to get your pair of LK Bennett as modelled by Kate Middleton? Sadly, this brand’s style is completely sold out, but let me suggest a few alternatives!
Top to Bottom – Tahari $69.95, Aldo $29.98, Jimmy Choo $665
Want to wear the ever-so trendy espadrille wedges but not so keen on looking like a stripper? Keeping it classy as usual, Kate takes on the wedge sling-back espadrille that’s fit for a princess, not a streetwalker! So If you’re into the espadrille/wedge trend this summer, but need to keep it subtle and workplace friendly,
what appears to be a LK Bennett style is a sure bet.
Although there aren’t many identical styles out there, here are my top finds:
Top to Bottom – Jimmy Choo $399, Dolce Vita $118, LK Bennett $266, Dorothy Perkins $50
Ah, the Princess wears Prada! Almond-toed & beautifully shaped, Kate gets dons her version of the blue suede shoe in two separate occasions during her 2011 Canadian Tour. A great alternative to the basic black pump, it adds a (subtle) flash of color without going over-the-top.
Need suggestions in various shades of blue suede? My top picks are:
1- Rupert Sanderson $595, 2- By Larin $239.25, 3- Replay $115, 4- Dune $120, 5- Sebastian, $295

1 – If you’ve got great shoes, don’t be afraid to wear ‘em out
2 - You can be trendy & keep it classy by taking a subtle approach to footwear trends
3 – If you haven’t already, invest in nude platformed pumps for their versatility and leg lengthening qualities!
