Steal Kate Middleton’s Look With These Classic Blazers
As far as we’re concerned, Kate Middleton can do no wrong when it comes to her taste in clothing.
Whether she’s attending a black tie gala or a sporting event, we can always count on the royal mom for spot-on style inspiration and a head of hair that’s worthy of even a Southern mama’s approval. She’s got classic style down to such a science that we’d happily offer her honorary Southerner status. After all, she certainly has the manners and good graces for it.
Our favorite royal (besides Prince George and Princess Charlotte, of course) continued that ongoing dedication to good hair and good clothes this week, stepping out in a smart look to celebrate the 150 graduates of Coach Core, the sports coaching mentorship program that Middleton started with Princes William and Harry in anticipation of the 2012 London Olympics.
The duchess, who’s expecting her third child in April, kept it simple, but tailored, for the event, elevating her turtleneck and skinny jeans with a dusty blue, double-breasted blazer by Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini.
Our favorite part of the look is that it’s fairly easy to replicate with items we already have in our closets. Black turtleneck? Black jeans? Low-heeled black booties? Check, check, check. We’re three-quarters of the way there.
While the starring feature of Middleton’s outfit – that dreamy blazer – comes with a royally lofty price tag, we’ve found 4 dupes that will give your black skinnies and turtleneck the same polished look for a much lower price.
