While hats and fascinators are a huge part of any royal wardrobe, the Duchess of Cambridge has been mixing it up lately with some stylish new headwear.
In recent months, Catherine has been favouring headbands a lot more, over the traditional wide-brim hats and eccentric fascinators.
The Duchess has been trying out her regal take on the headband trend with a range of different styles.
She kicked things off with a super-chic, and elegant white pick by Jane Taylor at the christening of her third child, Prince Louis, and was seen most recently in a red plaited headband at baby Archie’s christening.
Catherine has also worn a few different headband styles to church services at Sandringham, and formal occasions at Westminster Abbey, proving that the accessory really does work anywhere.
But never fear – if you’re not heading off to tea with the Queen any time soon, rest assured that headbands work equally brilliantly for normal, everyday life too; whether you’re going to work or to a wedding.
So if you’re wanting to try out Kate’s favourite accessory for yourself, see our pick of the most stylish headbands out there right now – from the super affordable high-street, to the higher end…
