Style Me Monday: Royal Style Inspiration

To anyone who knows me (or follows me on pinterest) it comes as no surprise that I love most of Catharine's (Duchess of Cambridge) style. And this week I have another example of her style and how to create a similar style.
I love, love, LOVE this outfit! I love the clean, crispness of an all white ensemble with a little black (or other colours) in the accessories for some contrast. I will admit that I am not the first to be seen wearing an all white ensemble. How do I put it together? How do I accessorize without pulling all the attention away? How do I avoid making myself look bigger?
Well, now the answers are here!
1. Remember to balance your body shape in the shape of the outfit as Kate has here with a fitted top that emphasizes her slim waist and draws the eye upwards with the slit neckline without showing too much. On the bottom half, Kate has balanced the fitted top with a fuller A-Line Skirt that gives more grace and movement
2. Keep the accessories small and simple! If I layer on huge black pumps, an oversized handbag, and layers of necklaces the whole look will become heavy, however, no colour or accessories at all leaves the outfit too monotone and bland.
3. While we all think of black as being the slimming colour, white can be just as slimming. Any monochromatic look automatically lengthens the body visually, and by balancing the shape of your body shape you'll look fabulous!
This has given me inspiration...will you be wearing white soon?
