Steal Her Style: Pippa Middleton

The day Kate Middleton married Prince William, a new style icon popped onto our radar… Kate’s younger sister, Pippa Middleton.

The beauty of Pippa’s style is the simplicity. Her clothing is always unfussy, tailored and structured. Her colour choices are rather limited; however she avoids looking bland, often choosing different hues of one colour for each piece of her outfit, with a contrasting solid block of colour as punctuation for her look.

Pippa favours high street stores, albeit the higher end of high street, such as French Connection, Reiss, Whistles and Warehouse. Her uncomplicated choices make her style very easy to emulate.

Pippa does love a blazer. Much has talked about her figure and that bottom, but she actually has an athletic boyish frame. Wearing a tailored blazer with a structured shoulder and nipped in waist, gives the effect of a curvier silhouette than she actually has.

When not in her favourite skinnies and ballet flats, Pippa will sometimes wear a dress, but always with a defined waist and straightforward block colours, or a simple pattern in similar hues. With a blazer of course.

Look 1: Pippa Middleton steps to it in London, sporting a colorblocked Zara sundress, oversized navy cardigan and an L.K. Bennett handbag. Pippa keeps her laptop under wraps in a case from Knomo.

Look 2: Emerging from the Goring Hotel in London the day after her sister’s wedding, Pippa wore simple white skinny jeans, a cream button down shirt with ivory and gold loafers. This was punctuated wonderfully by the (now sold out) Zara blazer in royal (how apt!) blue.

Her favourite accessory is a large leather holdall – her one is from Modalu – so frequently worn on her arm, the company have renamed this style after her!

Look 3: Showing she dresses down as well as she spiffs up, Pippa paired a sheer chambray top with light denim skinny 7 For All Mankind jeans, classy cream flats and an L.K. Bennett “Annina” bag.

Look 4: For a day of post-wedding shopping in west London, Pippa swapped her Alexander McQueen dress for a printed style from French Connection worn with beige wedges.

Pippa’s Accessories

This girl really does like it uncomplicated. Pippa generally favours just one or two pieces of simple gold jewellery, and often wears long earrings.

Little sisters are sometimes outshone by their older ones, but in this case, Pippa wears the crown.

Have your say. Do you like Pippa Middleton’s style?
