Kate Middleton is probably the most well-known of all the Fresh Fashion Icons we've featured thus far.

The media has been in a frenzy over the impending nuptials, so naturally we had to get in on the action.

Of course, we're not featuring Kate due to the media hype - we're in love with her impeccable sense of style. You can tell just by looking at her photos that the girl knows how to dress! Kate's outfits are timeless, feminine and perfectly tailored. In addition, she always lets a little whimsy shine through with her use of elaborate hair accessories.

When she's not attending royal events, Kate's everyday look is fairly low-key. She's usually seen wearing jeans and a classic top or a simple day dress. Her outfits are very unfussy, but still give off an elegant vibe.

Even though they're absolutely gorgeous, the ornate head pieces Kate dons may not be the most practical choice for the average college girl. For a more wearable take on Kate's look, try out a stylish hat or fun headband to add some spice to an everyday outfit.
