Starting Sunday, Kate Middleton and Prince William will travel to India and Bhutan on an official visit — and all eyes will certainly be on the Duchess of Cambridge’s style.
While we expect Middleton to stay fairly classic in the shoe department, this is a trip where she could certainly take some risks with color.
Read on for our seven shoe picks for seven special events during the trip.
Day 1: April 10, India — Dinner with Bollywood stars
Bright colors are key in Bollywood, and this Manolo Blahnik kitten heel is just the right height for some serious dancing.
Day 2: April 11, India — Garden party celebrating the Queen’s 90th birthday
Middleton, who has worn wedges on many occasions, could choose this rope-adorned style fit for a garden party.
Day 3: April 12, India — Watching music and dance performances to celebrate Assamese New Year
Standout hues will again be key to celebrate Assamese culture, and this yellow python pair of peep-toe sandals would be fitting for a princess.
Day 4: April 13, India — Game drive at Kaziranga National Park
While the athletically minded Duchess only wears sneakers occasionally, this Adidas trainer would be a good choice for India.
Day 5: April 14, Bhutan — Private audience with King and Queen of Bhutan and visit to temple
No shoes allowed in the temple, so this elegant easy-on, easy-off patent block heel from Ferragamo would be a good pick for Kate.
Day 6: April 15, Bhutan — Reception for British nationals in Bhutan
Kate’s go-to pump of choice is often Jimmy Choo, and this nude pair would work well for a formal reception.
Day 7; April 16, India — Visit to the Taj Mahal
Kate’s late mother-in-law, Princess Diana, was a beloved figure in India, and she visited the Taj Mahal on a trip in 1992. She wore purple pumps while sitting on a bench in the Taj Mahal garden. It would be fitting for the Duchess of Cambridge to pay homage to Diana’s style during her own visit.
