“Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is You-er than You.”

Ever since she walked down the aisle in a Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen wedding gown, every fashion move Kate Middleton makes has been closely monitored by fans the world over. She must doing something right – apart from selling out just about every item she steps out in, the now Duchess of Cambridge has made it to the top of Vanity Fair's International Best-Dressed list in 2012 and 2011, beating out more seasoned fashion-savvy royals, models and celebrities for the coveted title.

We particularly love her lady-like and elegant sartorial choices. For sure she’s inspired us to focus our purchases on classic, timeless styles that will last for seasons to come. She’s also proven that one doesn’t have to bare a lot of flesh to be sexy and confident or spend a fortune on expensive couture fashion to be on-trend. It is a well-known fact that the Duchess loves to combine high-end fashion with finds picked up from her own shopping trips to more budget-friendly high street stores like Topshop and Zara. Every so often she would go thrifting at second-hand clothing stores - aah, a princess after our own hearts!

According to a survey conducted by the UK Daily Mail, blue accounts for 21% of her wardrobe choices. Indeed she does seem to have a penchant for blue outfits:

(L-R): Kate wearing a Reiss creation for her first speaking engagement as a member of the royal family; 2. Wrap dress by Brazilian design house Issa for her engagement announcement; 3.in another dress by Issa to attend a friend's wedding; 4. in Erdem during a state visit to Canada.    

Fortunately with a little bit of help from us, you don’t have to snag a prince or spend a king’s fortune to get her true-blue look. We’ve picked out some copy Kate-worthy options in her favourite hue which we think the duchess herself would approve of!



V-neck BCBG dress [AC274]                                                                                            
Finished with a tapered waist with fabric belt to tie on front, hidden side pockets and blouson sleeves with elasticated cuffs, this dress with its neutral shade and clean-lined aesthetic will easily coordinate with your wardrobe mainstays. Take your cue from the duchess and style it with natural makeup and camel-coloured pumps. 68% Cotton, 28% Nylon, 4% Spandex.  Size XS and priced at RM120.



BCBG Shirtdress [AC236]
With a tie belt to cinch in the waist, BCBG’s luxuriously versatile silk shirt dress with a smudged polka dot print in shades of green and blue is a lesson in easy-chic style. Wear it to work with neutral pumps a la the Duchess for a prim and proper effect or pare it down on your days off with flats or gladiators. Shirtdress has pointed collar, long sleeves, slit side pockets, banded cuffs and a detachable sash. Button fastenings at front. Simply slips on. 100% Silk. Size XS. Priced at RM150.

BCBG "Kacie" Skirt [AC259]
With its frayed hem finish, it's the attention to detail that makes this high waisted tweed skirt by BCBG special. It also comes with side pockets which we just love.
