Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge is one of the most fashionable women in the world. Prince William‘s wife has earned the reputation as a style icon for always looking so polished and well put together every time she steps out. Kate rarely ever breaks a royal fashion rule and has found a clever way to keep with the protocol without sacrificing comfort.
Read on to find out what trick the duchess uses to make sure she can avoid discomfort while in heels all day and how she doesn’t get blisters.
You’ve probably heard that royal ladies are expected to have on tights or nude pantyhose when they attend public engagements.
The Sun noted that the women wear tights with sticky pads on them to ensure that they don’t slide out of their shoes while walking. And to make sure she isn’t in pain while standing for long periods in her heels, Kate opts for pantyhose with cushiony silicone pads on the bottom.
Another trick the Duchess of Cambridge adopted is one that her sister-in-law Meghan, Duchess of Sussex has done as well and that’s wear shoes a little bigger than their actual size.
We’ve all seen pictures of the duchesses wearing shoes that appear too large for their feet but there’s a specific reason they go with shoes that are a bit bigger than their actual size. As fashion expert Harriet Davey explained, going for shoes that aren’t too snug is a style hack many celebrities have employed. It’s done to avoid blisters and accommodate for swelling feet, which occurs when standing for a significant amount of time.
