We're sure you know by now that Kate Middleton wore a Séraphine lavendar floral frock when she was spotted leaving Kensington Palace with Prince William and baby George. The Kate effect is still going strong, as the brand received a 40 percent increase in sales and surprise surprise, the dress is now sold out.
K Midz is a fan of Séraphine, as back in March she was spotted browsing Seraphine’s maternity concession in Peter Jones. She was then later spotted in one of their lightweight black jersey dress which is available for an affordable £39. For those of you who aren't so hot your maternity fashion, the brand was founded by French designer Cecile Reinaud and has been worn by the likes of (deep breath) Jessica Alba, Kate Hudson and Angelina Jolie.
Cecile Reinaud has shared with us her style tips for Kate Middleton, and has exclusively revealed to us some of the pieces the Duchess has purchased. How exciting is that?! Read below for her advice...
1. Nessa – Striped bamboo breastfeeding jumper, £49
'The Duchess would look gorgeous in our award-winning trendy Seraphine jumper, a perfect capsule piece of post-pregnancy style. With its long length and loose fit it skims any trace of post-maternity tummy and cleverly allows breastfeeding with its trendy shoulder poppers. The clever gradual stripe pattern really elongates the silhouette, what’s more soft blue shade would be a perfect match to Kate’s blue bugaboo pram!'
2. Madison – Bamboo breastfeeding shawl, £42
'This shawl is a must have for new mothers, it's very versatile and can be worn both as a stylish summer poncho or even wrapped as a scarf. Great for breastfeeding discreetly, it’s made using our ultra soft and eco friendly bamboo knit and would be perfect to swaddle baby George.'
3. Juno - stripe popper top, £25
'A fashionable take on the classic breton stripe, this top is great when matched with a pair of white cropped jeans for a chic riviera inspired outfit . It's designed to fit post-pregnancy with a slightly loose cut that skims the body and the silver poppers at the shoulder enable easy breastfeeding.'
4. Blossom – knot front lavender dress, £50
'We would not be surprised to see the Duchess appear in our signature lavender blossom dress again, with its flattering empire line and waterfall knot front that beautifully skim a post-pregnancy silhouette and a deep V neck enables easy nursing.'
5. Zandra – navy silk & chiffon polka dot dress
'The Duchess’ penchant for polka dots is no secret so we are sure she would love this silk chiffon dress from the Seraphine Luxe range – our luxurious collection of eveningwear, bridalwear and outerwear designed for before, during and after pregnancy. This style will softly highlight her empire line without clinging on the tummy and is the perfect day-to-night dress.'
6. Jo Emerald – knot front maxi dress, £59
'Maxi dresses are great post pregnancy , they are super comfortable , need little accessorising and work wonder to create a lean silhouette. Featuring our signature knot-front detailing, this emerald green number will really give a glow to the Duchess even if she is somewhat sleep deprived!'
7. Melody – white lace trim maxi dress, £29
'The duchess has been spotted wearing our classic white maxi dress and now post-pregnancy this feminine style has the same bohemian chic vibe, with a bonus of enabling easy nursing with its crossover neck line. An easy breezy option for the unusually warm temperatures we have had this summer.'
8. Rebecca - coral V-neck popper jumper
'Another bestselling knitted jumper from our breastfeeding range, I can see the Duchess teaming this bright coral top with her favourite skinnies and a pair of wedges to take baby George for a breath of fresh air!'
9. Adelaide navy – navy and sapphire colour block nursing dress, £55
'Available in 3 shades of royal blue , this dress would be a perfect option to main a sense of sophistication whilst nursing baby George, its cleverly concealed bust opening is very flattering and an elegant, regal option for a post-maternity wardrobe.'
10. Brooke – black butterfly sleeve dress
'This was the first maternity dress Kate was spotted snapping up back in her second trimester and with her genius knack at recycling clothes, we expect she will continue to wear this post-pregnancy. Like any trusty little black dress it immediately make you look slim and sharp and with its deep v neck it's perfect to show a bit of post maternity cleavage whilst maintaining looking demure.'
