Kate Middleton, 30, wrapped up the Asia-Pacific leg of the Diamond Jubilee tour with Prince William, 30, in style. Middleton wowed in a yellow shirt dress by Jaeger while visiting the Solomon Islands capital, Honiara.

The perfect shade of canary yellow for the Duchess of Cambridge’s olive skin and brunette hair, the bold hue fit her tropical surroundings, while the tailored frock’s cinched waist accentuated her slender figure.

What made Middleton’s sunny look a winner?

Middleton paired the shirt dress with barely-there makeup and neutral accessories — like her signature nude pumps — that complemented, rather than competed with, her sunny dress.

The tailored shirt dress is polished yet still feels young, and cap sleeves and a knee-length hemline kept the look prim and proper.

 

Despite the latest royal scandal, the Duchess hasn’t missed a style beat during the nine-day tour. In addition to the canary number, Middleton has scored major style points in a demure lace cocktail dress, an array of bold printed frocks and a showstopping gold-and-white gown by Alexander McQueen.
