Kate Middleton showed off how to power-dress this week, attending a roundtable at the Royal Institution wearing a candy pink trouser suit.
The two-piece is by Alexander McQueen, rumoured to be the Duchess of Cambridge’s favourite designer, and featured a single breasted blazer and tailored trousers.
The royal paired the suit with Emmy London pumps in a complimentary pink suede, alongside jewellery from Mappin and Webb and pared-back makeup.
The general rule is; if Kate wears something, it means it’s in style. So we imagine pastel suiting is about to have a major moment.
The exact one worn is still available to buy, but those of us without a regal bank account may struggle, as the blazer costs £1,370 and the trousers come in at £640.
That said, there’s a wealth of similar options for different budgets, with shades of pistachio and baby blue complimenting soft lilac, pink, and lemon yellow.
Kate went for a peg leg style trouser, but if you want to offset the muted colours of a suit you can give your ‘fit an edge with a wide-leg style or a military-inspired blazer.
The clash of stereotypically ‘girly’ colours mixed with crisp tailored shapes will offset any worries you have about dressing too feminine. Plus, a pastel suit will see you through weddings, work events, and parties for years to come.
