How Kate Middleton has jazzed up her shoe collection

Out with the nude heels and in with the new! Kate Middleton has jazzed up her shoe collection with bold colours and dazzling pieces to ‘inject personality, fun and flirtatiousness to her personal style brand’, says celebrity stylist

  • Kate has delighted royal fans in recent weeks with updated jazzy heel collection
  • Most recently, she impressed with stylish Alessandra Rich £540 strappy heels
  • The royal also debuted a stunning pair of blue Aquazzura shoes last month 

Her fashionable clothing choices can often lead to garments selling out in minutes – but the same attention is not often paid to Kate Middleton’s shoes. 

But the Duchess of Cambridge, 40, has a stunning collection of heels that has recently been updated with eye-catching styles, ranging from bold colours to sparkling editions.

Most recently, the mother-of-three impressed fashionistas with her stylish cream and black Alessandra Rich £540 strappy heels she sported to Wimbledon this week, pairing them with a blue polka dot number.

TV & Celebrity Fashion Expert and Feel Good Fashion Coach Miranda Holder told FEMAIL how Kate’s new footwear is an ‘injection of fun, flirtatiousness and personality to her personal style brand’.

Miranda said: ‘There’s nothing quite like a nude heel to go with any outfit in your wardrobe; they make accessorising a dream and serve to cleverly lengthen your silhouette, but on occasions, only a statement heel will do. 

‘And with Kate Middleton’s looks of late, it’s definitely been a case of out with the nude, in with the new!

‘Kate’s slim legs would look fabulous in any kind of shoe, but she has recently become even more confident with her fashion choices and opted for more eye-catching footwear that still perfectly compliments her look, but are more ostentatious. 

‘This is a sure sign that Kate is growing even more comfortable in her own skin and in the public eye – indeed she conducts every public appearance with a signature style that almost looks effortless – she carries every look with panache and enviable self-assurance.’

The fashion expert also suggested that Kate’s new shoe collection is a sign she is ‘maturing into a confident future Queen’.

‘Kate’s heels of late might spell “statement”, but they still tone with the rest of her outfit. Shoes are like the punctuation mark in that they set the tone for the whole look,’ said Miranda. 

‘When opting for more flamboyant footwear, you are adding an injection of fun, flirtatiousness and personality to your personal style brand – a sure fire sign that Kate is maturing into the confident and iconic future Queen she is meant to be.’

Meanwhile, celebrity stylist Rochelle White agreed that the Duchess’ fashion choices have ‘grown and evolved as she has become more comfortable in her looks’.

‘Nude shoes are great for most looks and outfits, but to make a visual impact, having statement shoes that match an ensemble can say a lot,’ added the fashion expert.
