Kate Middleton Is Major on Polished, Professional Fashion Style

Kate Middleton Is Major on Polished, Professional Fashion Style. I'll Have What She's Having: Timeless & ageless elegance that's neither stuffy nor trendy. For me, looking professional and chic always involves a bit of timeless elegance… the kind of style that looks great in photos that are a few years old, or from just last week.KATE MIDDLETON embodies that kind of fresh, timeless chic that is always appropriate, yet still full of verve and modern style.I cannot think of anyone else at the moment that embodies the perfect office chic and professional fashion style than the Princess-to-be. Her style is so simple and easy, that as a stylist you wonder how so many women just miss the the boat and veer on the side of stodgy or sleazy when wearing more classic, professional clothes.The look of classic clothes may appear to be straightforward, but it's all in the cut of the suiting that makes them interesting! And, in Kate's case, both also timeless and ageless.And, when it comes to cut and understanding her body shape, she is a master! Let's take a look at Kate Middleton's fashion style…

Supermodel Style- Claudia Schiffer and Yasmin Le Bon Get Casual Chic Right

I’ll Have What She’s Having: Age-appropriate fashion. We get so caught up in red carpet fashion, but it’s everyday style that most of us need!SSure, it’s fun to ogle red carpet fashion and photos of today’s young crop of models, but what’s supposed to inspire a real woman over 30ish?Really, when was the last time you wore a ballgown or a pair of cut-off shorts and thigh high boots? Not too recently, I’ll bet. We need grown-up ageless style that we can wear everyday of our life, not in some fantasy. We are old enough to see trivial trends come and go and savvy enough to know what works on our body… what we want is realistic fashion without an expiration date!So how about considering the everyday timeless style of Nineties supermodels Claudia Schiffer and Yasmin Le Bon? Women and not girls, the two supes still have it going on and then some. And, when I say timeless, I also mean ageless so that these looks are right whether you are 25 or 55… that’s what age-appropriate fashion is about.
