The Royal Wedding countdown is almost up! Whoop whoop. So, what better way to celebrate the highly anticipated nuptials than with a Kate Middleton inspired edition of Fresh Styles! Yes, I am aware that we aren’t all marrying a future king and therefore I have selected some moderately priced pieces, that will have you looking like a princess just in time for summer!

I have selected pieces that mimic the gorgeous bride-to-be’s killer style. Middleton has large shoes to fill in terms of attire, being that Princess Diana’s fashion sense was effortless and timeless. In fact, she is still celebrated as a major fashion icon, to this very day!
All things considered, the pending princess has shown an act for class and grace when it comes to her wardrobe. Yet, Middleton knows how to put a modern day twist on sophistication. I have chosen apparel and accessories that mock several of her beloved looks. Including the royal blue sheath she sported at the announcement of their engagement!
First things first, Kate loves a great wrap dress!
In fact, she is often spotted sporting them in both solid shades and patterned prints. Added bonus, this is a super flattering style for many figures, as long as you purchase the correct size. I found a great option by American Apparel for a mere $44.00 – talk about a steal. They offer the frock in several different shade, giving you plenty of options! I happen to love all of them… go figure! You can purchase the Interlock Wrap Dress from their online store.
This edition wouldn’t be complete without including a fun take on the classic khaki trench coat.
As you know, I absolutely love ASOS online because they always have totally chic items at a decent price points. Of course, I found an amazing belted trench and you can purchase it from their online store for $152.41. The jacket is a spring essential and will take you through multiple seasons. It offers updated details, including mini puff shoulders and a flirty cut.
The BLUE Dress!
When Kate and William announced their engagement, her dress received nearly as much publicity as the future nuptials. In fact, the royal blue frock sold out immediately! I selected a similar option but opted to go for a short sleeve cut in order to keep things Summery! I chose a Lauren by Ralph Lauren jersey sheath and you can purchase it from Dillard‘s online. Kate often sports dresses that offer ruched side detail, which is very flattering. This option offer ruching on the left side, making it the perfect pick!
As for accessories…
Kate is the definition of classic cool when she sports her various hats! Seeing as how were not in London and summer is nearing, I opted for a fedora, which she often wears. I found a perfect option from Urban Outfitters and you can purchase it online for $24.00. The fedora comes in four different shades and it’s linen base is perfect for warm weather.
Lastly, Kate’s footwear!
She loves to wear knee high boots throughout the colder months but seeing as how we are prepping for summertime, I opted for a heel. The soon to be princess elongates her legs and keeps things classic by rocking nude colored pumps. The height of her heel is often modest and the shade keeps her looking neutral. Besides, a nude heel will compliment several different looks without drawing to much attention away from your ensemble. I found a great pair by BCBGeneration and you can purchase them from Zappos online for the sale price of $50.96!
There you have it! Purchase these Kate inspired staples and you are sure to be mistaken for royalty. Enjoy.
