Spring is in full bloom (finally) and as we look towards stocking up on warm-weather essentials, there is one special lady who we like to turn to for sartorial inspiration: Kate Middleton, of course!
The Duchess of Cambridge is a pro at knowing exactly what clothes to wear during spring's unpredictable weather, whether it be showers, hot muggy days, cool evenings or perfect summer temperatures.
For Duchess Catherine, the best piece of clothing to own during the spring is a good coat or jacket, and, as we all know, Prince George's mum has one of the best coat collections across the pond.
Other lessons from Kate's spring wardrobe include layers, bright colours, vibrant prints and a good wedge heel.
Take a look at Catherine's best spring looks (so far) of 2014 to get inspired (sorry, no butt bodyguard is included):
