Before she became the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton was well known for her knack of blending high-street styles with designer labels. Now that she’s the wife of the future heir to the throne, high-end garb is outnumbering Topshop picks— but she still knows how to work a chain-store look.
Last week, the Duchess of Cambridge chose high-street fashion for a charity concert she attended with Will, Prince Charles, and Camilla. She matched a £69.99 black-and-gray-patterned dress from Zara with a black Ralph Lauren jacket.
Host and Take That singer Gary Barlow greeted the special guests: “I hope you enjoy tonight, I hope it’s not too loud.” Prince William replied: “The louder the better, Gary.” Rock and roll, Wills!
Yes, they’re British royalty, but Will and Kate know how to blend in with the rest of us. From Reiss dresses to J Brand jeggings, Tom Sykes looks at the affordable styles Kate has opted for since her big day.
