Nobody needs to be told that Kate Middleton is a bona fide style icon. From the moment she started dating Prince William, all eyes have been on her clothing choices -- and she always nails it. Rarely following of-the-moment fashion trends, the Duchess of Sussex knows exactly what she likes. And not surprising, this also applies to her accessories. (Her seriously cool, highly covetable accessories.) Whether she's wearing a chic hat or holding a stunning clutch, we're always into Kate Middleton's adornments. Sure, her outfits are gorgeous, but it's her accessories that tie everything together. Kate really has a knack for adding just the right touch to every ensemble she wears.

Before becoming a "professional" royal, Kate was an accessories buyer for UK fashion chain Jigsaw. So obviously she knows a thing or two about jewelry, bags, hats, and the like. Never going too over-the-top with her accessories, Kate seems to know how to perfectly balance an outfit and its accompanying jewelry. (And of course, few people can rock a fascinator like the duchess.)

Overall, Kate's style is more on the classic and understated side. And while the same can be said for her accessories, it's obvious that the duchess's jewelry and such is a little extra fancy at times. It just so happens that the way Kate styles everything makes it so her overall look is fairly low-key. Not an easy task for a member of the royal family. 

From her glitzy jewels to her perfectly tied scarves, here are 20 times Kate Middleton nailed it with her accessories. We bow down.
