Some designers credit her style to her taste in well established fashion brands. This essentially underscores the point that you have got to spend few bucks to get noticed. Her black coat dress from Libelula managed to create big hoopla. This is because some designers were not comfortable with what future British queen is wearing. Nevertheless, she looked amazing and graceful in that outfit as well.

Quite amusingly, she was recently spotted along with her mother while she was busy bargaining for her dresses. Some designers are particularly interested in her strategy after getting married. Too much is being said already about her comparison with Lady Diana, who happened to be paparazzi favorite before her tragic death.

And, sales of souvenirs of her engagement, such as t-shirts, dolls and even baseball caps, has picked up already. These items are in demand, both at nearby shops and online stores.

Military coats inspired by fashion of 60s, feminine and soft laces, short skirts and long maxis are every where to be seen. Curvy, feminine and classic: every sort of cloth is being worn by women these days.

Leggings remain popular and break some set rules of fashion. These are comfortable and fashion forecasters can’t make the mistake of ignoring this impeccable garment. Leggings make a comeback and that too, with a bang. Animal prints, bolds, stripes and graphics are printed over them in all sorts of shades like dull and bright ones. These are available in plenty of options including Lycra, nylon, net and woolen.

The leggings need to be combined with a loose top and contrasting silhouette. Military coats, belted sweaters and flower print tops can make great combination with them. Add to the sexiness by wearing a short skirt over them. Flat footwear is to be avoided with them, but you can go for high heeled sandals.

Avoid wearing leggings along with tight tops regardless of the type of your figure. This can make you look dowdy.

Knits are the fancier avatar of sweaters, but were not considered cool enough few years back. Knitted dresses like coats, skirts, leggings and so on are increasingly being worn by everyone. Numerous shades have hit the markets and ought to be checked out. One may find knitwear in all colors of the rainbow.

These need to be worn casually and knits can be paired with knits. One may look too casual with combination of knits, but OK if at times. Some women don’t prefer wearing knits with knits. They can go for combination of knits and non-knits. These blend too well with denim-wear.

Beige, blue, white and grey are the most preferred options for skirts, coats and sweaters. Colorful combinations are best for knit tops.
