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...
Alice and Blair silk floral headband, £64
This gorgeously elegant headband sits at the higher end of the price range, but we reckon it's well worth the price! Choose this for a wedding or christening - the neutral but pretty colour ensures it'll work with just about any outfit. Plus, we could totally see the Duchess of Cambridge wearing this!
Anthropologie Ariela lace headband, £34
Made of a delicate, decorative lace, this is another pick for those formal occasions throughout the year, and is a subtle way to try out a headband without going too bold first time.
ASOS black velvet headband, £8
A super affordable way to give royal's new favourite accessory a go, this ASOS option is subtle but still utterly chic.
Topshop polka-dot headband, £10
Keep it casual with this high-street option. If you want a headband for everyday use - working in the garden, popping to the shops - this is a great choice and will look super stylish.
Lovisa diamante silver headband, £16.50
An elegant pick that wouldn't look out of place on the Duchess herself. If bling is your thing, this is an easy way to wear it.
Oliver Bonas linen headband, £18
Another simple pick that will go just as well with jeans as it will with a summer midi dress. Wear with your hair up or down.
H&M denim blue headband, £2.99
Keep it super simple with this casual, comfortable headband that'll add a little something special to any outfit.
So which will you be treating yourself to?
