Patterned Shirt// although Kate usually sticks to classic oxfords or button-ups, she isn’t afraid to wear tops that are adorned in patterns like gingham and florals.  If you really want to be a facsimile of the Duchess, just grab a striped sweater--stripes seem to be her favorite pattern of all!

 

Navy Jeans// no casual outfit of Kate’s is complete without her simple, straight-legged jeans.  The bluer the jean, the better.

 

 

Tailored Blazer// another staple piece that the icon frequently wears is a solid-colored blazer.  For those of you who are young professionals, this aspect of Kate’s wardrobe is a wonderful piece to have handy.

 

 

Low Heels// lastly, Kate usually completes her outfits with a pair of nude pumps or a simple pair of flats.  If you want to embrace the trendier side of the Duchess’s style, try a pair of espadrille wedges to top off your look.

 

 

Royalty though she may be, Kate Middleton has a casual style that is easily attained by women everywhere.  When trying to emulate her style, remember to keep your wardrobe selections understated yet elegant--just like the Duchess herself.
