She has access to the most stunning clothes in the world, but that doesn't mean that, once in a while, Kate Middleton doesn't want to just throw on a pair of jeans and sneakers and call it a day. And after spending so much time in nude panty hose, knee-length dresses, and heels, who can blame her. From what we've seen so far, the duchess's laid-back, casual style is just as stylish and chic as her "formal wear." It's no wonder everything she wears -- including her sneakers -- sell out in an instant. 

Whether she's wearing jeans and sneakers or is spotted dressed down while running errands, the future Queen's laid-back style is on point. Somehow, Kate always manages to maintain her classy, understated style, even when wearing clothes from the "high street." That's no easy feat. 

The duchess knows what she likes, and manages to carry her look no matter what she's wearing. Her clothing is always sophisticated, streamlined, and a little bit preppy. She also tends to typically stay within the same color families, rarely ever reaching for shades and patterns that are too flashy or over-the-top. In other words, she always looks timeless. 

Of course, it's fun to see the duchess dressed up to the nines, but there's something slightly thrilling about catching a glimpse of her dressed down. She's just like us! Or, you know, not at all. Either way, we heart Kate's most casual looks, and here are 16 of our favorites.
