Prince William and Catherine

When we first reported on Kate’s ‘Something Borrowed‘ and the controversial tiara that we were so pleased to see her wear, I believe the world had barely a clue what an impressive little fashionista they had in their hands… A ROYAL fashionista!  They say men tend to look for certain qualities in their future wives that they embraced from their Mother. In this case, I believe a young Prince William recognized the creative fashion and jewelry designs created by his Mother, Princess Diana, as he’s married a stylish, spirited woman with grace and genuine charm. The likeability factor is undeniable. She’s a perfect addition to the Royal Family.

Let’s not forget about the gorgeous younger sister…

Pippa Middleton!

Pippa Middleton: Fashionista Sister

Pippa Middleton

Dots Press had the following to say about Pippa, who just completed in the Highland Cross Challenge, a 50-mile duathlon.

When it comes to fashion, Pippa Middleton is a true professional. She knows how to match and perfectly accessorize her outfits. Sometimes using the same handbags, over and over again.

For Middleton sisters, money was never a problem. But they choose not to spend a fortune on clothes and accessories, as other children from reach families.

Moreover, Pippa was seen in public lately wearing the same three handbags: one cream, one gray, and one brown. Bristol’s Modalu, the British maker of the handbags, renamed them after her and then created a purse to make the set complete.

Pippa, the Royal Sister, looks to be another Fashionista on the Royal rise, as rumors of romance between herself and Prince Harry begin to build a momentous buzz.

Masculine Monday: Princes William and Harry are Among GQ’s Best Dressed in Britain

Masculine Monday Toots it’s Own Horn for Recognizing the Impressive Display of Prince William Style Last Month! 🙂

This news was still unbeknownst to me when we published the Masculine Monday dedicated to Prince Williams Classic Style of Proper Patriotism. Now serving as further proof that their is an undeniable and strong allure to a well-groomed and proper mannered gentlemen who can carry his name and Nation with pride.

Prince William. Prince Harry.

Obviously, nothing is without flaw, and we might have done without Prince Harry‘s daring anti-sematic fashion mistakes. As they say though, no press is bad press, and the buzz around Prince Harry’s more embarrassing ensembles opened the gateway to Style Stardom for Prince Harry.

As a Nation, we feel that we’ve been part of an evolution, a perpetual change in the appearance of the younger Royal Brother. Whether it is in fact the truth or not doesn’t matter much, as he’s worked his way successfully into the soft spots of our American hearts.

Prince William snagged the number 27 spot, because, as GQ puts it, he is ‘”following in his father’s footsteps as a great ambassador for British style.” He even gets a ringing endorsement from Pharrell Williams: “‘I like it when Prince William goes dandy. He’s got all the proper wardrobe when they do the hunting thing. They kill that!”

Prince Harry landed a top spot on the list at #5.  This top spot was earned through the fashion measures of eliminating effort, truly. GQ fashion experts explain, “he looks good because he really doesn’t care.”

Prince Harry on cover of GQ Magazine

The special edition front page shows the 26-year-old wearing kit for the Walking With The Wounded charity, of which he is patron. He will arrive at the group’s base camp in Longyearbyen, northern Norway, on Tuesday to begin his training, before he heads out into the frozen wasteland on Friday.

Harry will be with his teammates for the first five days of the gruelling walk, which is expected to take around four weeks and will cover up to 200 miles (322km). They will haul sledges weighing more than 220lb (100kg) in temperatures as low as minus 60C (minus 76F).

The Prince told GQ: ”This extraordinary expedition will raise awareness of the debt that this country owes to those it sends off to fight – only for them to return wounded and scarred, physically and emotionally.”

There definitely is something to be said for the power of an attractive man that looks like he’s just rolled out of bed. However, following the Royal Wedding and all of the well-deserved enamored praise for new Bride, Kate Middleton, society may find itself placing more value in the appearance of an obviously groomed, self-aware Prince. I would propose that on the next published list, Prince William’s Classic Style may rank higher among the GQ Experts, with fresh eyes.

Congratulations is in order for this impressive Royal Brotherhood, though they come a bit late.

With different approaches to fashion that vary from ultimately traditional to the extremes of casual, both have made their mark on the world of fashion, and what the future has in store for us should be nothing less than an exciting style evolution for both men.

Prince William. Prince Harry.

Masculine Monday: Prince William’s Signature Style of Classic Patriotism

Oh, The Royal Wedding! Such an elegant and beautiful Alexander McQueen gown worn by Kate Middleton, decorated with the most delightful diamond drop earrings and the famous ‘something borrowed’ tiara.

With so much attention being given to the blushing Duchess, I thought today would be a perfect opportunity to recognize the classic style of Prince William. He seems to have created a new genre of men’s fashion, and I personally believe it to be absolutely brilliant!

Prince William prefers clean lines and classic fits, exuding a proper patriotic gentleman appeal that is quite easy to be enamored with.

The leading fashion trends today, from Edwardian Era Engagement Rings for the gals, to Vintage Leather Strapped Watches for the gents, seem to be showing appreciation and paying homage to the men and women of America’s early 20th century more than ever before.

With Classic evolving into Couture … Prince William’s simple, cleanly patriotic look, seen the day of The Royal Wedding, is a clear example of his fashion-conscious style.

In 2000, Prince William was highlighted by People Magazine for his personalized style. At the time, Prince William was making fashion statements with British flag stitched waistcoats, embellished with the words, “Groovy Baby.”

Prince William of Whales was 18 at the time, and has since retreated into a conservative style that unbeknownst to us, was entirely ahead of the fashion curve for men! With a constantly classic and proper wardrobe, Prince William prefers navy blue, burgundy and other regal, richly conservative colors. 

His dress shirts tend to be of either lighter blue’s, classic white or cream colored, with classic pointed medium spread collars. His suits are not slim-fitted, and the press has yet to see him sockless. This dedication to proper attire, and avoidance of the fashion trends that sit too far apart from classic are commendable. Prince William has the patriotic gentleman look pinned. Perfectly.

Gentlemen, Get Classic…

There are a few key Royal fashion tips that you should take from Prince William. For upper-dressed occasions, You can’t go wrong with sporting a classic tie clip, small patriotic accents, or navy and burgundy neck ties. On casual days,  polo shirts worn with khakis, and crew-neck sweaters on-top of button-up shirts and trousers will be a successfully royal choice every time.

Have a wonderful day, Ladies and Gentlemen!
