When it comes to the Royals and fashion, we like to watch every step of Duchess Kate and obsess about the outfits she wears. If you like Kate’s casual style, then you’ll love what Princess Charlotte of Monaco wears day-to-day.
Charlotte Casiraghi is the granddaughter of Grace Kelly and Prince Rainier and currently eights in line to the throne of Monaco. She has starred in many campaigns for Gucci, regularly graces the covers of fashion magazines in Europe, and her casual style can be summed up as the epitome of preppiness.
Pulling off the preppy look doesn’t mean you’ll have to stick to polo shirts and chinos, it’s more about keeping it simple and sticking to classics instead of trends. Take a hint from Princess Charlotte:
Good quality denim
Denim plays a huge role in preppy styles, but it is important to wear good quality denim that fits well and doesn’t look too washed out. And don’t just focus on jeans; a button up denim dress can become your best friend as it doesn’t need much else; combine with a leather bag and a hat to instantly look chic.
White pants can be a bit daunting, but when you find the right pair, they can instantly lift any outfit. Do like Charlotte and pair with a tucked-in shirt and a dark leather belt to emphasise your waist.
Another classic and a preppy-style-staple, cashmere sweaters aren’t only comfortable, but chic and versatile at the same time. You can’t go wrong with a camel-coloured round neck sweater like Princess Charlotte’s. She makes it look modern by combining with black leather pants.
A black turtle neck sweater oozes elegance when combined with a pencil skirt, but it looks just as amazing paired with jeans and suede boots. Again, the preppy style is all about focusing on classics and keeping it simple. In this outfit, the black turtle neck acts as the base for Charlotte’s red statement jacket while at the same time making the jeans look sophisticated.
