The list of reasons we wish we were Kate Middleton is seemingly endless—including but not limited to her adorable kiddos and that whole commoner-turned-Duchess thing. But one that constantly tops our list is her classically put-together wardrobe. Highly covetable? Yes. Realistically achievable? Not without a royal bank account. Channel your inner princess with these tips on how to dress like Kate without spending like a queen.
EMBROIDERED DRESS + RED PUMPS + RED CLUTCH
On-trend stitching with a Queen-approved neckline.
SKINNY JEANS + STRIPED T-SHIRT + NAVY BLAZER
This duchess proves that jeans are always fitting—even for a royal.
RED MIDI DRESS + RED PUMPS + DANGLING EARRINGS
Although Mandy Moore successfully pulled of the real deal, there’s no need to max out your credit card on just one outfit.
PATTERNED PANTS + NAVY BLAZER + NUDE PUMPS
Show off your playful side, but remember to keep things tame up top.
FLORAL DRESS + NEUTRAL MINAUDIÈRE
The simple cut of this dress lets the pattern do all the talking
A-LINE DRESS + PEEP-TOE WEDGES + COLORFUL CLUTCH
Perfect for a sunny summer wedding or a beachside soireè.
CROCHET DRESS + RED PASHMINA + STRAW CLUTCH
Although Kate wore this to sit courtside at the Wimbledon, an LWD is a timeless choice for any workday, bridal shower or celebratory brunch thing you have coming up.
STRIPED T-SHIRT + SKINNY JEANS + BOAT SHOES
Even Kate has to get down and dirty sometimes. But she never strays from that New England preppy meets English countryside vibe we all know and love.
