Why style blogger Kate Middleton follows Kamala Harris fashion

Two fashion bloggers who have followed Kate Middletons and Meghan Markles every glance are turning their attention to the United States to focus on a new topic: Vice President-elect Kamala Harris.

Any good politician knows that what he wears sends a message. Whether we like it or not, it’s part of the package, says journalist Susan Kelley, founder of the fashion blog What Kate was wearing.

In 2011, Kelley launched What Kate was wearing, which tells the style of Kate Middletons. Susan Courter, friend of Kelleys, created a similar site dedicated to Meghan Markle, What Meghan wore in 2016. Kelley and Courter have joined forces to write about the Harriss style online.

Centered on the intersection of politics and style, the site What Kamala wore was created to break down the outfits worn by Harris during public engagements. While the websites mission is similar to that of fashion blogs dedicated to tracking Meghans and Kates sartorial choices, Kelley shares the main differences she noticed between following Harris and the Royal Family.

Kelley explains that for the Royal Family, Kensington Palace releases designer credits, such as who made each item of clothing or accessory. This isn’t the case with Harris, as she doesn’t want to be known for her wardrobe or who she wears, she says.

While it’s an added challenge to break down each outfit, Kelley notes that the Harriss outfits are cohesive, accessible, and authentic. For example, Harris was seen numerous times on the campaign trail wearing Converse Chuck Taylor jeans and sneakers, a very relatable and easily replicable look.

Kelley learned from following Harris that she’s not a public figure who cares about the hottest trend or the latest news off the runway or who sees fashion as a high priority.

She talks about work, mission and getting things done, Kelley says.

However, Harris is aware of how clothing can be used to maximize a message. For example, Carolina Herrera’s white suit that the Vice President-elect wore when she and Joe Biden gave victory speeches sent a powerful message, as it seemed to be a nod to the suffragists who fought for women’s right to vote.

Kelley says she expects 10% of website profits will go to the HBCU Foundation, which historically funds black colleges and universities, as Harris has spoken at length about his experience at Howard University and the importance of Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) in the United States.

The dialogue has been so negative and vitriolic in this country about politics that for me what Kamala was wearing is a little escape, Kelley says.
