Welcome to my new blog that’s here to fulfil all of your Kate Middleton themed fashion needs. Everybody is obsessed with the Duchess’ style and so that’s where I come in, I’m here to keep you up to date with her latest outfits!
As we already know, the Duchess isn’t one to shy away from the high street, which means that her look is often easily accessible to emulate, but unfortunately for most of us, as soon as she’s pictured in an outfit, it’s already sold out by the times that we get the chance to shop it. So, I’m also on a mission to track down some of the best alternatives that the high street has to offer, and get you dressing just like the Duchess before you even know it!
Due to her recent pregnancy, the Duchess is currently taking things easy, and hasn’t been spotted out and about as much as usual, which also included missing the Royals’ traditional Christmas service gathering at Sandringham. Fingers crossed that she’s set to up her personal appearances again soon, as I’m sure that it’s not only me, who wants to see how she works a maternity wardrobe. Plus, as the influential style icon is set to be the most famous pregnant woman in the world throughout 2013, let’s hope that the high street will also take heed, and improve its maternity offerings too.
Kate was however spotted (above) looking ever the demure trendsetter just before Christmas, whereby she presented Olympic cyclist, Bradley Wiggins with the title of the nation’s favourite sportsman at the BBC’s Sports Personality of the Year Awards. Her outfit of choice? An emerald Alexander McQueen number!
Steal Kate’s Style
Her green Alexander McQueen dress certainly doesn’t factor into my post Christmas purchases, so, inspired by that eye catching colour, and all of that detailed structure, I’ve hunted down some more affordable alternatives (below) that are currently available online:
1. NET-A-PORTER is currently stocking a gorgeous ruched silk-jersey dress costing £510 by ISSA, and yes, it’s a great emerald green take on the Duchess’ famous engagement dress.
2. Keeping the length longer, just as Kate did at the awards, Tibi (New York) has a long teal peplum dress that’s now on sale, and will cost you $207 rather than its original $690 price tag.
3. Alternatively, switch that structured look for drapes with Phase Eight’s cross over maxi dress for £69 reduced from £120.
4. Or, opt for a shorter and more fitted party look with VENNA’s boat neck shift available for £113 in place of £189 at Reiss.
