We know Kate Middleton’s style has changed a lot since she became a royal. For example, she basically never wears certain shoe trends anymore, especially those neon crocs and Ugg boots she was spotted in years ago (you’ve got to see those pictures). Though she will still sneak in a naked shoe here and there. These days she prefers classic pieces, even if they are from stores like Zara—remember when she wore that pretty striped dress?
Since her style is so restrained, we thought it may be fun to see the trends she wore back when she didn’t have every outfit dissected by the public. Ahead, the outfits Kate wore while at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland, where she met Prince William during her first year of college, or “uni” as they call it in the UK. From baby hobo bags to super low-rise jeans, she kept up with the best of them when it came to early noughties trends. Scroll down to see for yourself.
