This week saw Kate Middleton visiting school children in Bath and Bristol who benefit from the Dame Kelly Holmes Trust, a charity set up by the athlete in 2008. The trust uses sports stars as mentors to support young people to find the skills and confidence they need to succeed in education, work and life.
The Princess wore a bright mustard yellow LK Bennett blazer with classic tailoring paired with a white t-shirt, matching trousers and belt giving her an effortlessly elegant look, as she always does.
With a competitive game of giant noughts and crosses on the agenda, Kate paired her chic look with VEJA trainers, giving the summery look a sporty edge.
Her fabulous look is a must-have in your wardrobe. Perfect for swapping from the office to getting your day-to-day jobs done in comfort and style. The white trainers are versatile and go well with jeans or trousers, providing a sporty, casual spin to any outfit. The clean whites and sunny yellow palette will provide a bold, bright summer look.
To recreate Kate Middleton’s style, you will first need her VEJA Esplar trainers. You can purchase these Kate Middleton trainers at Daniel Footwear from our women’s VEJA Esplar collection. The particular model that Kate wears features a bold metallic gold V on the side which matches well with the yellow blazer.
Or, for similar VEJA trainer options, discover our rose gold VEJA Campo trainers, designed using chrome-free leather and organic cotton lining. Browse our VEJA collection to find your new favourite summer fashion trainers.
Another pair of shoes you need for your summer style is a pair of Birkenstock sandals. Their ergonomic soles mould to the shape of your feet as you wear them, making them comfortable and unique to you. The thick cork soles also offer shock-absorbing properties, allowing you to wear them all day during the busy summer.
Various celebrities are sporting the classic Birkenstock sandals already this summer, including Kendall Jenner and Gwenyth Paltrow.
Birkenstocks are the perfect addition to your summer wardrobe because of their versatility. Wear them with jeans, trousers, skirts or dresses and add a cool, relaxed style to your summer outfits.
Whether planning on travelling, exploring new cities or chilling at home this summer, Birkenstocks will support your feet while you keep cool. Effortlessly slip these on and off whether you need to pop to the shops or on your summer holiday. We also have a stunning range of Birkenstock Arizona EVAs that are 100% waterproof, perfect for trips to the beach or days by the pool.
Fly London Sandals
Another stylish option to complement your summer wardrobe is Fly London sandals. These sandals follow the returning 90s trend of chunky-heeled sandals, adding a cool, edgy vibe to your summer outfits. These bold and block colour chunky sandals from FLY London make a statement all on their own.
Chunky sandals are sometimes lovingly referred to as “ugly shoes” and feature a platform heel, lug sole, puffed silhouette, oversized buckles and wide straps. Our collection includes a variety of styles, from slab sandals and mules to low and mid-wedge sandals to suit your taste.
Chunky soled sandals also help protect and support your soles as you walk with their thick and comfy rubber soles, so you don’t have to compromise on comfort for style. All our Fly London sandals pair well with your everyday wardrobe, but you can also dress them up for going out in the evening.
Marc Jacob bags
Complete your summer looks with a stylish and practical bag from Marc Jacobs. Our Marc Jacobs bags are excellent for summer as you can swiftly change from a practical cross-body bag to a chic clutch for a night out with a detachable strap.
Hold all your belongings for a day trip or excursion to a beach in the classic Marc Jacobs tote bag. Or, keep everything you need to hand while jetting off to a luxurious location in a Marc Jacobs traveller tote.
Our collection of Marc Jacobs includes a fantastic range of tote bags in block summery colours like orange, yellow and pink to create a bold statement with your purse. Or, opt for a calming light beige bag to complement your light and airy fabrics.
