On Saturday, Pippa Middleton will marry James Matthews at a quaint church in the English countryside. While the designer of the bride’s wedding gown has yet to be revealed — rumors are swirling though that she might glide down the aisle in a custom gown by Giles Deacon — taking a look at what she’s worn to past weddings might reveal some hints.
The same sleuthing can apply to her sister. The Duchess of Cambridge won’t be wearing a bridesmaids dress, but she might be outfitted in similar styles to the ones she’s she’s worn to other events. Perhaps a coat dress teamed with a fascinator? Or a shift dress paired with a statement hat?
Over the years, the siblings have attended numerous high-profile nuptials, providing plenty of what-to-wear-to-a-wedding inspiration: from the perfect heel height, to the ideal hat size to the best hem length. So, whether you’re set to attend a spring, summer, autumn or winter wedding, look to the Middleton sisters for the ideal ensemble.
