Kate Middleton earns her spots and stripes.

As one of Team GB’s most glamorous supporters, The Duchess of Cambridge has perfected a style that is both chic and smart, but does not draw undue attention from the athletes. It seems in the last few days that when she hasn’t been wearing official TEAM GB pieces that polo tops and tracksuit jackets, that she has stuck to a wardrobe of skinny jeans teamed with a blazer, and a palette of mainly (what else?) red, white and blue.

The Smythe blazer made a second appearance this week when it was teamed with a Breton striped vest top – a real summer classic. Breton stripes are always such a cool look, and this was effortlessy chic from the Duchess. Every girl should have at least one striped top in their summer wardrobe as they just look great in so many combinations – from wide leg palazzo pants, to denim skirts or tiny shorts. Kate’s version was a vest top, but something with sleeves means that this top will take you right into Autumn with ease.

One of my favourite looks from the Olympics s far has been Kate’s red blazered look. I love the vibrancy of red, and when teamed with polka dots I think this is just genius. Kate’s blazer was another high street hit, this one from Zara, and it is still available online for £69.99. Kate teamed this with black skinny jeans for a smart casual look which again worked really well for the occasion.
