We were all waiting to see what the Duchess of Cambridge would wear to Wimbledon Championship and as usual, she did not let us down; on her first appearance at the 2019 tournament, Kate Middleton wore the perfect summer dress; the Flippy Wiggle Dress by Suzannah, and here is why we loved her outfit:
The right colours
Of all tennis championships, Wimbledon has the strictest rules; the players must wear all white clothes even down to their underwears! Of course, there’s no such dress code for the royal spectator. Nevertheless, the Duchess choose a white dress that matched the players’ outfits, and that looks very summery, although science tells us the best summer colour is black.
The right cut
The shirt dress made in Italian silk crepe that the Duchess wore to Day Two of the tournament is a button-up dress by British label Suzannah. The designer Suzannah Crabb is known for making chic dresses with a vintage feel and classic silhouettes. The cut of this dress is utterly flattering; the midi length is elegant and elongates her legs. The trendy puffy sleeves add newness to the otherwise classic model, and Coco Chanel would have approved of the contrasting black buttons. The belt and plaids on the sides of the waist accentuate the enviable figure of the mother-of-three.
The right accessories
The cut the all-white look, the Duchess of Cambridge paired it with a thin black Alexander McQueen belt with a bow and a matching black and purple bow brooch. She finished her outfit with an Alexandre McQueen “Wicca” straw clutch and black pumps with block heels to walk with comfort on the grass. The result was a chic black and white ensemble that was very elegant and polished, yet casual enough for a day at Wimbledon.
