Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge colour choices have turned her into a fashion icon.

Elegant in Silver:  The Duchess wore this subtle shade for the UK's Creative Industries Reception at the Royal Academy of Arts London in 2012 a 'winning colour on Kate'

Kate in Roksanda Illincic silver shift dress: Emerging from the plane at LAX airport on her first overseas tour in July 2011  ‘This soft cool silver is subtle but striking on Kate.’


Dove grey Alexander McQueen coat and Jane Taylor hat: Easter Sunday service at St Andrew’s Cathedral in Sydney 2014  ‘Soft grey looks sophisticated on Kate and evens out her skin tone.’

Blue Erdem Jacquenta dress: Freedom of the City Ceremony in Quebec in July 2011.  ‘A perfect cool soft summer blue that is completely in harmony with Kate. First you see the beautiful Kate and then you notice the gorgeous dress’

Issa blue silk Forever wrap dress Where : Her engagement photocall in November 2010. ‘The perfect choice for a moment in time: this French navy is a cool mid-tone blue but with just the right amount of depth to give Kate a glow.’

Kate also wore burgundy when leaving Grimsby Fishing Heritage Centre in 2013

Beautiful in Burgundy: Kate chose this wine coloured coat and matching Jane Corbett hat for her first Christmas Day at Sandringham in 2011. ‘Dark pink berry tones compliment Kate’s natural colouring and are sensational for Kate.’

Kate wore this Missoni blue tweed M dress and Rachel Trevor Morgan hat when she joined the Queen and Prince Philip during the Diamond Jubilee tour . ‘The tone-tone effect of the tweed creates a softer look and compliments Kate beautifully.’

This dress that Kate wore to the ARK 10th Anniversary Gala Dinner at Kensington Palace, in 2011 worked well. Melissa says: 'Soft, delicate and sheer also works well for Kate'

Sarah Burton at Alexander McQueen lavender bespoke gown at Gala in Los Angeles at end of first overseas tour July 2011  ‘Soft lilac is a sophisticated alternative to white.’

The Duchess of Cambridge looks her best in the cool soft tones of 'summer colours', like the baby blue gown she wore for the Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2014 Awards Ceremony

whilst harsh black, like the Temperley cocktail dress she wore during an Action on Addiction gala dinner fashion watchers described her as looked rather more washed out.
Roland Mouret cream dress Where : Meeting of the Thirty Club at Claridges in May 2012. ‘Soft white is preferable to optic white although we feel Kate needs a little more colour to look her best.’

'Shell Pink is a stylish Neutral on Kate; light shades of colour complement Kate when soft and cool.'

Kate wore this  Alexander McQueen white broderie anglaise suit when visiting the Rolls Royce jet engine factory in Singapore in September 2012. ‘Swap optic white for a soft white or soft grey and this outfit would be a winner.’

Candy Can Colours: This Reiss £159 white Nanette engagement dress and Sylvia Fletcher at Lock & Co red hat with maple leaf which Kate wore for Canada Day celebrations July 2011. ‘You see the hat first! Red and white is too contrasting for Kate.’

Mint green Burberry coat Where: National Review of the Queen’s Scouts at Windsor Castle What the experts say: ‘An uncomfortable combination of both colour and style. A grey taupe hat with an airforce blue jacket would be a better combination for Kate.’

Ralph Lauren £350 olive green wool and cashmere turtle-neck dress Where : During a visit to Centrepoint's Camberwell Foyer in December 2011

Beautiful in Berry: Kate chose a brighter shade when she visited her new portrait, hung at the National Portrait Gallery London by artist Paul Emsley in 2013 and the expert says 'Soft berry reds are better than vibrant orange reds'

This green Emilia Wickstead coat dress with Lock & Co £245 brown ‘Betty Boop’ hat were worn by Kate  at St Patrick’s Day 2013.  ‘The combination of brown and green are too earthy and detract from her natural style.’

This Emilia Wickstead bespoke coat in yellow silk was worn to the Buckingham Palace Garden Party in May 2013.  ‘Acid yellow is harsh, bright and overbearing on Kate.’
