Kate Middleton has logged plenty of frequent flyer miles since becoming a duchess. I love covering everything she wears abroad—whether she's showing off an Indian designer in Mumbai or bundling up with the Princess of Sweden in Stockholm. But I have a soft spot for the outfits she's worn while in Paris over the years. Is there any doubt that she'd save some of her best looks for the fashion capital?

For instance, Middleton is normally not one for designer logos, but in Paris, she couldn't resist donning the ultimate French brand: Chanel. Her logo top-handle bag and belt perfectly completed her skirt-suit outfit while remaining true to her polished aesthetic. She also loves to experiment with statement jewelry in Paris, wearing jaw-dropping diamond bracelets, pearl necklaces, and more. Scroll down to see what Middleton wears while in Paris and shop the trends.

Next, the eight style tips I learned from writing 24 Kate Middleton stories last year.

Associate Director, Fashion News

Erin got her start as a Who What Wear intern over 12 years ago—back when the site only published a single story per day. (Who What Wear has since increased that number twentyfold.) She graduated magna cum laude from USC, which is how she ended up moving to Los Angeles from her hometown of San Diego. In college, she also interned at Refinery29, where she was promoted to editorial assistant and then assistant editor. After nearly three years at R29, she came back to WWW in 2016, where she currently holds the title of Associate Director of Fashion News (as well as the unofficial title of resident royal expert—in case you haven't noticed her numerous Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton stories). She spends her days trying to incorporate her idols, Anna Wintour and Roger Federer, into as many stories as possible. Outside of work, she loves tennis, classic rock, traveling, and smothering her dog with affection.
