Kate Middleton’s Best Summer Fashion Looks

Aug 10, 2023Aug 10, 2023

Kate Middleton, like every royal, is something of a fashion maven. Over the years, the newly minted Princess of Wales has redefined elegance with her effortlessly chic ensembles, particularly when it comes to her summer style.

From glamorous garden parties to high-profile royal engagements, Kate Middleton's fashion choices have consistently dazzled the world. And even though she is still bound by royal duties (and fashion rules), Kate still has her breezy summer style moments that allow royal fans to see her in a new light.

For Kate's summer wardrobes, soft pastels and vibrant florals take center stage, channeling the spirit of sun-drenched days and balmy evenings. She also seems to be a fan of green and sports it often, be it with a flowy dress or a more form-fitting ensemble.

But it's not just the colors that make her outfits unforgettable—it's the moments they accompanied. From her unforgettable Wimbledon appearances in breathtaking white dresses to her effortlessly chic beachside looks that set social media ablaze, each ensemble tells a story of its own. Check out some of Kate Middleton's best summer fashion moments below:

Just because Kate is a royal doesn't mean she can't get in on the Barbiecore trend! At the end of May, she sported a soft pink, fitted suit with a white belt adorned with pearls and white pumps.

The royals love to attend Wimbledon, and in 2022, Kate rocked a navy blue, white polka dot dress complete with a bow at the front for the men's finals.

For the women's finals at Wimbledon 2022, Kate went in the opposite direction of her ‘fit for the men's finals with a bright, attention-grabbing yellow dress.

Nothing says royal summer more than nautical stripes! During her visit to the 1851 Trust and the Great Britain SailGP Team on July 31, 2022 in Plymouth, England, Kate paired a long-sleeved navy-blue-and-white striped sweater with bright white, mid-length shorts — perfect for sailing!

Kate looked cozy but chic in this cap-sleeved, breezy white dress with black line detailing at the Royal Charity Polo Cup at Guards Polo Club, Flemish Farm on July 6, 2022 in Windsor, England.

No, Kate Middleton isn't at a summer music festival, even though this breezy outfit might suggest otherwise! She wore the sweet purple dress while attending Cambridgeshire County Day at Newmarket Racecourse during an official visit to Cambridgeshire on June 23, 2022.

During her June 2021 visit to the ‘Urban Nature Project’ at The Natural History Museum in London, Kate wore a salmon-hued, structured jacket over a white tee tucked into jeans. Perfect chilly summer morning look.

We love this playful umbrella paired with a structured, soft periwinkle dress! Kate rocked this look when she attended the launch of the Royal Foundation Centre for Early Childhood at Kensington Palace on June 18, 2021 in London, England.

In a powder blue, mid-length dress, Kate quietly commanded attention during Men's Finals Day of the Wimbledon Tennis Championships at All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club on July 14, 2019, in London, England.

In July 2019, Kate visited the RHS Hampton Court Palace Garden Festival to view the RHS ‘Back to Nature Garden’ which she co-designed at Hampton Court Palace.

Kate kept it casual and chic in this flowy dress and neutral wedges when she joined a photography workshop with her patronage Action for Children, run by the Royal Photographic Society at Warren Park Children's Centre in June 2019.

When Kate arrived to visit to the 2019 RHS Chelsea Flower Show in London on May 20, 2019, she was ready to move and help out in the garden in wide-legged, cropped trousers with a breezy long-sleeved white blouse.

Kate has attended her fair share of Wimbledon Tennis Championships! In 2018, she paired a playful polka dot dress with drop pearl earrings.

Everything about this look from summer 2018, from the soft blue, pin-striped summer dress to the pastel-hued slinky, screams summer. Who says adults can't take a litttle play break during the Maserati Royal Charity Polo Trophy?

Back in July 2017, Kate got to race against her husband Prince William (a friendly race, of course!) during their visit to Germany. We love the nautical stripes for the ocassion!

In July 2017, Kate and Prince William also visited Poland, where they stopped by the Gdansk Shakespeare Theatre. Kate went full floral for the occasion.

Kate had some fun during her 2017 summer visit to Poland, where she rocked this structured, minimalist black and white dress perfectly with a pair of black pumps.

When the Princess of Wales attended the Chelsea Flower Show, she had to rock her own take on florals, of course. Green seems to be a favorite for Kate, too, and this forest green dress patterned with white flowers is perfect for the occasion.

Who else is obsessed with this white eyelet dress Kate Middleton wore for the Simone Halep v Sabine Lisicki match during day nine of the Wimbledon Championships at Wimbledon on July 2, 2014?

Who says you can't combine summer fashion with business? In July 2014, Kate sported a simple blazerr dress combo with some playful wedges during a visit to the Commonwealth Games Village in Glasgow, Scotland.

In 2014, Kate's Wimbledon attire was the definition of summer casual. The blue and green plaid dress paired with shades and a simple watch is a big yes for us.

During a summer 2012 visit Bacon's College with Prince Harry and Prince William, Kate took some time to play some table tennis in a belted plaid dress.

To watch the torch relay for the 2012 Olympics held in London, Kate Middleton put on a bit of a sporty look herself. She paired blue skinny pants with a simple Adidas polo (and some wedges, of course!)

On July 4, 2011, Kate and Prince William visited the States. Of course, Middleton had to channel Jackie O for the occasion with a nautical knit dress and navy blue pumps.
