The world's newest style icon represents royalty's next generation. Since capturing Prince William's heart, Kate Middleton's every move has been diligently chronicled by the British press - including where she shops for clothes. And the princess's sartorial choices have been a pleasant surprise for many Brits: the girl likes a bargain and can often be spotted in the inexpensive boutiques of London's High Street. For everyday wear Middleton appreciates the easy versatility of a good dress, particularly wrap styles or a floral print by designers like DVF, Joseph, Reiss and Issa (the line's navy blue dress that she wore to announce her engagement inspired legions of copycats). And, in very un-princess-like fashion, she isn't afraid to wear something more than once. For more, ahem, regal affairs Middleton turns to designers like Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen (she designed Kate's wedding gown) and Jenny Packham for elegant numbers - and, being a true Brit, she always appreciates a stunning topper.

Signature items: Statement hats, tailored suits, wrap dresses, navy and neutral colour palette.
