The LRD (little red dress) and our style crush
Over the Jubilee weekend, the Duchess of Cambridge wowed the crowds with her fabulous ensembles and itâ€™s easy to see why Kate has become the sweetheart of Britain. Her style status is rocketing and where she goes, weâ€™re quick to follow.
Kate is relatable, recycling items from previous looks as well as looking to earlier seasons to pick up the perfect piece. Take for instance the gorgeous red Alexander McQueen number. We were quite surprised to see that she took some styling tips from the unlikely Tulisa and Kim Kardashian who had both worn a version last year! Nevertheless, K-Middy made it her own with stunning accessories as well as a more demure, covered up version. A dress like this costs in the range of Â£1200 and although we love it, weâ€™re not ready to be blowing that much cashâ€¦especially when we can pick up a similar dress from Pink Label for just Â£49! We love the dropped waist and pleated skirt, it reminds us of the Victoria Beckham edition with scalloped edge from her debut collection. Â It exudes playful chic and is perfect for any office to bar combo. Paired with some flats for the day youâ€™ve got a feminine demure look, and with heels it looks stylish and sophisticated. Not bad for under Â£50!
But our style lust does not stop there. Kate Middleton’s lace crush has meant we’ve given her the title of ‘Queen of lace’ as she’s often seen wearing this luxurious fabric. The nude version she wore over the Jubilee weekend was stunning, but the one that is still on our radar is the Alice Temperley black lace maxi she wore to the UK premiere of War Horse. And itâ€™s not just Kate who loves a black lace number, Charlise Theron, Salma Hayek, Rachel McAdams are all big fans of the look too. So we thought we should be trying it out and so found this Bastyan black lace strappy dress onsite for just Â£104.50 (RRP Â£275). Nailing trends has never been easier, or cheaper! Pick up the Duchesses look for a fraction of the price here and start living life like a princess, the savvy way.
