How to Dress Like the Other Middleton
The Duchess of Cambridge has earned her style icon status, but her younger sister isn’t too shabby in the wardrobe department, either. READ: Did Pippa Middleton Wear A Fake Butt To The Royal Wedding? Pippa Middleton's claim to fame could have just easily been that as sibling to a royal, but she had millions of eyes all on her when she strutted down the aisle in body-hugging bridesmaid dress in 2011. But long after the televised wedding of Kate Middleton and Prince William, Pippa Middleton has become a sought-after trendsetter. While older sister Kate is best known for recycling her couture, sporting head-turning hats, and her love of designer Jenny Packham, Pippa’s take on fashion is more down-to-earth. “We notice Pippa’s style due to the fact that her choices perfectly suit her personality,” says Emmy Award-winning celebrity stylist David Zyla of the 30-year-old casual Brit. “She shows us exactly who she is. It is never about the clothes, colors, prints, or accessories, but is it the choice of how they perfectly pair with and illuminate her. She might be considered one of the most authentic dressers of our time. Her devotion to flirty peplums and playful fascinators signals a feminine light-heartedness. Therefore, she is a woman who enters the room whom we immediately know something about and therefore can instantly like.” READ: How to Recycle Your Wardrobe Like Kate Middleton Zyla also explains that this Middleton stays true to her personal style by sticking to clothes that both suit and enhance her figure, as well as keeping things simple in the accessories department. “Channeling Pippa’s signature style is best accomplished with a light-handed flair,” Zyla says. “Think quality over quantity: One bracelet instead of a stack of them, or a handbag that is very basic, sleek, and straight-forward.” Another way to channel the other Middleton? Don’t be afraid to break the rules. Wear outfits that suit your mood and personality at the moment. READ: The Problem With Kate Middleton's Skirts “Her skirts can sometimes be just a wee bit short,” says Zyla. “She often ignores the model of not matching shoes and bag and will often appear in a colored dress paired with heels and handbag in a darker tone of it.” Sounds pretty simple to us, and you don’t even need to empty out that wallet.
