Kate Middleton loves a high street bargain. She has access to a pretty expansive list of designer brands, and yet she often opts for labels we would pick up on a regular shopping trip out. From Zara for dresses to Monica Vinader for jewellery, Kate is certainly on board with some of our most beloved affordable retailers.
And some of her favourite footwear is actually by high street brand Monsoon, it has now transpired. During the summer time, The Duchess of Cambridge loves to opt for a wedge shoe, with a sensible heel height for both comfort and style. While she has many pairs, one top pick seems to be a pair of cream coloured wedges by none other than Monsoon.
The Ella Glitter Espadrilles come in a gorgeous neutral hue, and feature a subtle sparkle all over. They also have a woven wedge sole and a lightly padded foot bed for extra comfort, meaning they feel as good as they look.
The shoes are a very fairly priced £45, and are currently available online, despite flying out of stock soon after Kate wore them. For this reason, we recommend getting in there quick if you like the look of them.
The Duchess has worn them during several occasions, the most notable of which was during a trip to Cornwall in 2016, alongside the Duke Of Cambridge. More recently, she also sported them at the Back To Nature festival, alongside a pale blue floral midi dress, making the perfect summer ensemble.
They are the perfect summer shoe, and would look excellent with any summery outfit, from pretty dresses as Kate styles them, or with lightweight trousers, skirts, or even jeans.
You can now buy the wedges online in sizes 37 through to 42, for £45. Let’s pray they don’t sell out too quickly this time!
