Kate Middleton

By Rose Munday

In the world of fashion, it’s all about bright electric blue. Set to be a big colour for the upcoming season, male and female celebs alike have been snapped in the shade. Kate Middleton is a big fan and brings a new meaning to the term ‘royal blue’. To get Kate’s look, add this colour to your outfit and beat the winter blues…

Here are a couple of our favourite pre-loved pieces from ASOS Marketplace for guilt-free fashion indulgence. It’s really important with this shade that you wash at 30 degrees or less to avoid your items fading and becoming a pale, washed-out blue (totally not hot right now!).


This vintage sequin dress (above left) is a real statement piece and one of our favourite things at the moment! With a ziz zag hem and padded shoulders, it’s got a proper retro-classic feel and we love the glitz and glamour it’s got going on. Because it’s so detailed, you don’t need any accessories to wear with it – just some black tights and plain pumps. Don’t forget bright red lippie for a striking look!

Our next fave item is this cute ruffle skirt in electrifying blue (above centre). Great for semi-formal wear like dinner out or drinks at a bar, we recommend you pop on a black top and team with gold or wooden jewellery to carry on the quirky vibe.

We also love these bright blue shorts which are really fun and retro. You might need to wear them with tights and a woolly jumper to fight off the winter winds though! Bright blue is a great excuse to colour block – try wearing with a mustard coloured top or orange shoes for a head-turning look.

Check out the video below for more advice on how to wear bright blue and how to colour block to perfection. You’ll soon be a fashion queen – just like Kate!
