Kate Middleton's (Affordable) Olympic Style

During the Olympics, I saw this slideshow on Yahoo! that showed what Kate Middleton wore to all of the events. The outfits are all very simple and chic, making me wonder how easily you could mimic her style. Here are of her Olympic outfits and my take on them:


Kate Middleton Goes to the Olympics: Torch Relay

Kate Middleton Goes to the Olympics: Torch Relay by preppypremed featuring short sleeve shirts

Notes:
  • Blue pants can be found anywhere, but I found the best-priced pair at H&M
  • I've found $15 Ralph Lauren Polos at TJ Maxx and Marshalls...you've just got to look for them!
  • These DSW wedges, though not exactly like Kate's pair, are very close and would be a good investment

Notes:
  • The skinny jeans, navy blazer and striped tee are all probably part of your wardrobe already
  • Totes.com sells old-fashioned umbrellas like Kate's in a variety of colors
  • This Michael Kors wallet can be found on Ebay for a great price
  • The closest shoes to Kate's that I could find were these Lauren by Ralph Lauren wedges, which could be worn into fall and beyond

Notes
  • The colorful red blazer can be found at many places, such as H&M and J.Crew. Red is a big color this season
  • Try darker skinny or straight jeans with this outfit to let the red pop out
  • The dot t-shirt can be found at Old Navy for $20
  • Though we can't see what shoes Kate is wearing, I picture gold flats would go great, along with a black clutch wallet.
How do you all like Kate Middleton's style?

  1. I have to say (although she does get on my nerves a tad - constant UK coverage I think is the reason) that Kate does have style! And I love how re-creatable her looks are. Great post - I especially love the 2nd one :)

    1. I can see how the constant coverage would get on your nerves--it'd be like Kim Kardashian for us, she's ALWAYS in the news. They really don't talk about Kate much here. But I do love how re-creatable her looks are. You don't have to be married to a prince to have her style, as cheesy as that sounds!
