Since it was first confirmed that Kate Middleton was pregnant with baby number three, we’ve been keeping a close eye on her (and her always-stunning maternity style), eagerly awaiting any signs of when we can expect the newest royal to join the family. And today’s the day.
Just this morning, Kensington Palace confirmed, in a tweet, the official due date as April 2018. So in six months, the world will be introduced to new, adorable royal baby. And that means we can expect many more standout maternity style moments from one of our favorite royals, Kate Middleton. Stay tuned.
Scroll down to see the official tweet announcing the baby’s due date.
Just a few days after Kate Middleton’s first public appearance after announcing the birth of her and Prince William’s third child, Kate Middleton made a surprise appearance at a children’s charity event at London’s Paddington train station alongside her husband, Prince Harry, and Paddington Bear (who adorably took Middleton for an impromptu twirl around the platform).
For the fun occasion, Middleton chose a pink sheath dress by Irish designer Orla Kiely, which she paired with timeless black pumps. The pretty dress is sold out, but its most flattering feature can easily be copied: a contrasting band at the waist. The black band on Middleton’s dress effortlessly accentuates and draws the eye to the smallest part of her waist, but the same effect can also be achieved with a waist belt, which is one of this season’s biggest accessory trends.

Retro seems to be the new normal these days, with styles like flare jeans and round sunglasses more popular than ever. In particular, it’s the retro-chic vibe of the ’70s that keeps delivering the coolest must-have trends time and again. It’s the decade that keeps on giving, with designers pulling various bits of inspiration from its iconic look each season. Right now corduroy is having a moment, and the ’70s-inspired fabric feels so right in all the coolest fall outfits. But the question of how to go about styling a pair of corduroy pants without looking like an extra in That ’70s Show is another story. Corduroy pants are inherently autumnal in nature, so to test the waters of the style, lean into that rich fall color palette, and opt for a pair in burgundy, mustard, or brown. High-waisted, cropped, and flare cuts all look ultra cool with a corduroy finish, and if there’s one styling trick that’s worth knowing, it’s about pairing corduroy pants with a knit sweater or lightweight turtleneck.
Almost ready to jump the gun on the retro pair? Keep reading to see what to wear with corduroy pants to bring the ’70s style into 2017.
