  • Shop Kate's Blue Blazer

    A simple one-button blazer (Essential Notched Lapel Blazer from Forever21, $32.80) gives any wardrobe an added appeal. While blazers came back big time in the office and work environment, Kate made the style a staple for an everyday, on-the-go lifestyle.

  • Be Inspired by Kate's Paneled Tops

    I swoon for Kate's military pleated blouse. But since bold paneling (Contrast A-Line Top from Forever21, $22.80) is so hot this season, let's focus there. The thing these two tops have in common is that the eye-catching center line makes your torso look thin and trim. Tuck for sophisticated grace or leave it untucked for a comfortable, causal look.

  • Keep Warm With Kate's Patterned Coat

    Can we credit the Princess for bringing back patterned coats? I am obsessed with the brown and black coloring (Carefully Chosen Coat from ModCloth, $99.99) and I think it's a must-have for the cooler months. Adding a waist-belt helps to give you shape.

  • Make Kate's Shoes Work for Every Season

    Granted, we're entering the chilly weather here in the states, but it doesn't mean we can't take a style cue from the princess. Covered-toe wedges (Home Again Heel from ModCloth, $79.99) help remedy your sole (get it?). Hidden toes keep out the cold and make the perfect transition from summer to fall.

  • Get Kate's Lace Look

    I love Kate's soft yellow lace frock, but since we're on the expressway toward fall and winter, I'm opting for creamy neutrals instead. A sleeveless off-white shift (Twilight Hush Lace Dress In Cream by Tulle by Ruche, $59.99) gives you the option of accessorizing with a cardigan or blazer, or layering the look with an oversized sweater. Add tights and ta da! Beautiful.
