Kate Middleton has been in the public eye for over a decade, which means we've been able to witness her style evolution from a college student to the impeccably dressed Duchess of Cambridge. Naturally, Middleton has transitioned certain trends out of her wardrobe since becoming a royal, and she's replaced them with more grown-up and sophisticated versions.

For instance, Middleton used to wear white jeans regularly, but the Duchess has never been spotted in them since her royal wedding. Instead, she relies on timeless dark skinny jeans, which are just as casual but a tad more polished. She's also swapped out shoulder bags for top-handle iterations and clutches and has definitely left Ugg boots in the rearview mirror. Scroll down to see all the trends Kate Middleton never wears anymore and what she wears instead.

Erin Fitzpatrick
Senior News Editor

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 senior news editor (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.
