New mum Kate Middleton’s effect on fashion this year has been huge. In fact, as soon as the Duchess of Cambridge is spotted in a dress, jacket or boot it sells out immediately — resulting in the media dubbing it “The Kate Effect” on fashion. Her style appeals to many women because she chooses affordable pieces that even us non-royals can afford.
We also love the fact that she is not too posh to “recycle” or to be photographed at an event wearing an outfit that she has worn before. Some of her favorite pieces to wear again include her Orla Kiely coat dress, J Brand skinny jeans, her navy Smythe blazer and the Aquatalia ankle boots.
Kate looked gorgeous pictured above at the Long Walk To Freedom premiere wearing a white Roland Mouret dress, which she also wore last year to a dinner. Even though she has access to the finest jewels, The Duchess once again surprises us all by pairing the dress with a gorgeous $35 necklace from Zara, and — you guessed it — the necklace sold out immediately.
