Like Queen Elizabeth, Kate Middleton loves a bright dress. Can she wear black? Of course. Brown? Sure! Neutrals a la Meghan Markle? Without a doubt. But it's the Duchess of Cambridge's bright, happy dresses and coats that have captured the hearts of people the world over -- and not-so-coincidentally have become sort of a duchess staple. 

There's no denying the fact that Kate Middleton could basically look chic in a contractor bag, but it's her cheery dresses that always leave us wanting more. 

Either she's following in the queen's footsteps or she's just a fan of color -- whatever the reason, Kate always seems to be game for more than a pop of color when it comes to her clothes. Her dresses, her coats, her fascinators -- heck, even her shoes! -- always seem like they're ready for spring and summer, regardless of the temperature. 

With her signature bouncy blowouts, kohl-rimmed eyes, and outfits that just make people smile, it's safe to say the Duchess of Cambridge has locked down a "look." And hey, it's working, so there's definitely no need to change anything. 

From blindingly pink dresses to sunshine-y yellow frocks, here are 20 of Kate Middleton's brightest, boldest, happiest outfits. It's impossible to look at these photos of the duchess without cracking a smile. 

Kate, you're the embodiment of warm weather and we couldn't be more into it.
