Kate Middleton style: Copy her looks for less
Happy one-year anniversary, Kate Middleton and Prince William! It's hard to believe that it's already been a year since the couple said their vows at London's Westminster Abbey. Since then, we've come to love -- and covet -- every outfit the Duchess of Cambridge wears to events. We haven't been able to afford her style, though -- until now. Check out our knock-off finds!
Kate Middleton might be able to pick from any high-end designer she wants, but the Duchess actually prefers to shop at discount retailers like you and me. Middleton has gained quite the reputation for mixing budget pieces with high-end stuff from Alexander McQueen and Jenny Packham.
"Believe it or not, Kate's favorite shop in the U.K. is TK-Max [the U.K. version of TJ Maxx]," a source told US Weekly last year. "She loves to shop for bargains, mixing and matching high street clothes and designer. She has a great eye for that."
We have to agree! Check out the pieces we found that mimic her famous outfits, but cost only a fraction of the price.
Beautiful in blue
Kate loves the royal blue look -- we wonder why?! She looks great in it, too -- so good, in fact, that she's worn the color several times throughout the past year. Knock-offs of the actual dress have been sold out since the official announcement, but we found a similar maxi skirt in cobalt at Marshalls for just $80.
Lovely in lace
Another one of Kate's go-to fabrics is lace. Lace brings just a subtle bit of sexy while still maintaining that prim-and-proper look Middleton must maintain as a member of the royal family. We spotted this white dress at T.J. Maxx that we're sure Middleton would love -- for only $20! We also love this purple textured dress for $50 to get an on-trend look for spring.
Don't forget Pippa!
Pippa Middleton became quite the sensation at the royal wedding, thanks to her shapely assets. Since then, photographers have followed her every move, turning her daily walk to work into a fashion show. The Middleton sisters are both into style and rock similar looks. Take for instance Pippa's colored jeans. Kate's also known to sport the colored jean trend too. We found these colored jeans at T.J. Maxx for a wallet-friendly $25 in this season's favorite color, mint! Love, love, love these.
Pippa also likes to cover up with a bit of color. Case in point? Her wide array of colorful jackets. Copy her look with this cobalt trench coat from Marshalls for $70.
