As you've probably already heard, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge took off for their honeymoon today. According to the official Royal Wedding blog, the site of the newlywed's honeymoon "which will be overseas, will not be disclosed in advance...the Couple have asked that their privacy be respected during the coming weekend and during their honeymoon."
Oops! Secret's out! The British tabs are reporting that Kate and Wills will be honeymooning on a private island in the Seychelles. And while Kate will most likely wear some of the sensible items she picked up on her high street shopping spree just days before her big day, we thought it would be more fun to pick out some pieces from resort and spring 2011 that we wish she would wear. Keeping her conservative tastes and penchant for those damn L.K. Bennett wedges in mind, of course. (Yes, we photoshopped them onto these looks.)
It's about time Kate wore some Chanel, no? So why not start with this form-fitting (but still covered up!) feminine floral number from Chanel's new resort collection for 2012.
DVF and Kate Middleton seem like a match made in heaven. We know she loves those wrapped and draped jersey dresses in bright solids from Issa, so the transition to DVF's printed wrap dresses and jersey pieces should be seamless. But this romper from resort 2011 is a bit more fun and casual for the honeymoon. Plus it shows off her pins.
This Giambattista Valli look from the designer's resort 2011 collection is perfectly princess prim and pretty in pink (agh the alliteration!), but still a bit more fashion forward than what we're used to seeing from her. A perfect piece to push the envelope just a little.
She probably owns this number from her fave designer Daniella Helayel's spring 2011 collection for Issa already (sans turban, obvs).
This look from Matthew Williamson's spring 2011 collection is a little risque for Kate but we're sure Wills won't mind.
This relaxed look from Michael Kors spring 2011 is vacation perfection and Kate has the body to pull it off.
Kate would look amazing in this Oscar de la Renta dress from the designer's 2011 resort collection.
Kate's got great legs and we've never really seen her in pants since she got engaged to Prince William but this look is by another of Kate's favored designers, Alice Temperley, from Temperley London's 2011 resort collection, and she could totes pull it off.
This look from Vionnet's 2011 resort collection is perfect for the beach--barefoot OR with wedges.
And we had to throw in this bride-perfect white bikini from Chloe (at Net-a-Porter) because we know she likes white bikinis.
