6 Times Kate Middleton Served Us Complete Canadian Open #OutfitGoals

Tuesday, July 26, 2016

While most of us spend our weekends shoreside in a white tee and cutoffs, or eclectically dancing to the vibrant sound of Piknic Electronik at Parc Jean-Drapeau, tennis adorers will be seen strolling around the Uniprix Stadium these next couple of days, sporting their classiest style courtside at Rogers Cup. And although the Canadian Open hasn't quite mastered yet the perennial put-together chic of Wimbledon's royalty, or the big winner’s well-suited fashion moment at Roland-Garros, there is a certain je-ne-sais-quoi about Canadian tennis style… If you have no idea of what I am talking about, but somehow have managed to score an invite to the Central Court this year, here's a go-to playbook for the best fashion moments of the ultimate tennis tournament style queen(!), Kate Middleton, and how you can get her looks right on time for Rogers Cup.

The Dutchess of Cambridge was the image of summer chic back in 2014 when she donned a superb Zimmermann white eyelet frock as she soaked up the action at Wimbledon. She accessorized her knee-length broderie anglaise frock with a red and neutral Anya Hindmarch 'Fan' bag, which she also previously carried on Canada Day in 2011, when she, along with Prince William, were on their first tour. She teamed this with her trusty nude Sledge pumps from LK Bennett and her Cartier 'Ballon de Bleu' wristwatch, which has barely left her wrist ever since she got it. Such a cute, refreshing style for an afternoon match!


Middleton is no stranger to going out in standout outfits but when she was spotted in a yellow Roksanda number, a few months back, the whole world felt the urge to clap! Paired with drop earrings and beige heels, this was quite the daring look for the duchess, who often prefers pastel and neutral coat dresses, but since considering yellow is often associated with Summer, we can see why she broke it out; it's the perfect colour for the season!


In the Summer of 2012, Kate wore a suitably Wimbledon-esque cream Joseph dress with a cream Joseph jacket, which she cleverly paired with her leopard-print Diane von Fürstenberg clutch and Givenchy sunglasses. Far from new, style recycling star Kate's clothes have all been seen before; the jacket at the Epsom Derby and the dress during her royal visit to Canada, back in 2011.


The Duchess of Cambridge‘s look, back in 2014, a recycled blue-and-green Jonathan Saunders design, was the perfect frock to wear to the Gentlemen’s Finals at Wimbledon. It was breezy, the fun pattern photographed well and she looks stunning in those colours. On the accessories front, Kate carried her Avona clutch from LK Bennett and added some glam with Givenchy sunglasses. The Cartier wristwatch also made a reappearance that day.

For her first Wimbledon trip as a married woman, Middleton was accompanied by Prince William as she wore her take on a tennis dress by Temperley London, teamed with a Stuart Weitzman clutch, a blow dry, and the charm bracelet she'd received from Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, as a wedding present. You really can't go wrong, sporting your freshest whites at a tennis tournament. On top of looking very polished and classic, your sense of style will be kindly noted and appreciated by the tennis etiquette purists among the crowned ;)

Only a few weeks back, Kate made an eye-catching appearance at SW19 in a short-sleeved Alexander McQueen number that certainly was no ordinary royal dress... It was decorated with images of lipstick, butterflies, and even skulls; a secretly daring choice for the Dutchess. True to herself, Kate reproduced three features in the form of her accessories from her recent tour wardrobe on her visit to India and Bhutan with William in April: her versatile LK Bennett Natalie box clutch, Brora Gold Charm earrings and her Ray Ban Wayfarer sunglasses.
