Can I tell you a secret? I occasionally Google “eligible princes” — just to make sure I’ll recognize them if I ever run into a royal at all those polo matches and charity dinners I go to, you know? And if he happens to fall in love with me on sight, who am I to complain?
I’ll spare you the details of the royal wedding I’ve planned in my mind, but I will let on that at least 40% of the reason I want to schmooze with aristocrats is so I can become best friends with Kate Middleton — and borrow her outfits. An international style icon since her marriage to Prince William in 2010, Kate always steps out in chic, elegant ensembles that are just as much runway as they are royal. The building blocks of her best looks include silky dresses, sleek boots, and well-tailored coats (plus, of course, her signature flawless blowout).
I may not be able to raid Kate’s closet (yet), but that won’t stop me from replicating her style. Keep scrolling to see Kate Middleton’s casual outfits that are my cup of tea, plus the cutest pieces to copy her style.
This elegant, office-friendly ensemble is deceptively easy to put together — just don all the beige and camel pieces you own. Take a cue from Kate and break the brown with a dainty plaid scarf. (Tip: If you’re having trouble finding neckwear that doesn’t moonlight as a bedspread, try the kid’s section. Child-size scarves are often just little enough to mimic an ascot on adults.)
Even duchesses dress down from time to time. I’m totally borrowing this look for my next apple picking outing or pumpkin patch trip. Pair your trusty skinny jeans with a fair isle sweater and anorak jacket. Don’t be afraid to invest in a good set of knee-high leather boots, too — Kate’s been wearing her Penelope Chilvers pair since 2004.
Wondering what to wear to your next date night? Kate’s got you covered. Grab a tight-fitting black turtleneck, a leopard midi skirt, and heeled boots to have your sweetheart swooning. Let the animal print stand out by keeping accessories minimal — a delicate pendant necklace and earrings will do.
Emerald and Pearls
Turn heads at your next holiday party in a green midi dress reminiscent of Kate’s gorgeous L. K. Bennet number. Look for a playful print (we like florals as much as polka dots) and add pearl jewelry to mimic the pretty white buttons on Kate’s frock.
