Look -- it's no secret that everyone wants to be able to wear royal style. Whether it's copying Princess Diana's looks from back in the day or scouring online deals for one of Meghan Markle's latest trendy outfits, everyone loves the way these royal ladies dress for their public outings. But let's not forget about one special royal lady who arguably has the most attainable fashion sense of all of them -- our dear duchess Kate Middleton. Sure, she wears designer gowns pretty regularly, but time and time again, the Duchess of Cambridge has stepped out in outfits that are so easily replicated it almost hurts ... well, hurts our wallets at least. 

Kate has definitely worn her fair share of super expensive ensembles, but honestly, more often than not, she has at least one or two affordable pieces on her. Not everyone is going to be able to drop a paycheck on an Alexander McQueen gown, but how about Topshop, Zara, and J.Crew? Those are brands us common folk are definitely more comfortable with, and lucky for us, they are also favorites of our beloved duchess. 

So, not only do we admire Kate for not being afraid to repeat an article of clothing two, three, or even four times, we also love the fact that she's not stuck in an haute couture way of dressing. Because of her penchant for frugal fashion shopping, she's making it super easy for us to attain the Kate Middleton style. Royal fans have been wanting to dress like her even before she officially became a royal, and now we all can with these 20 looks that are just waiting to be added to our closets.

  • Zara Sundress

    Kate has been really into wearing blazers lately (maybe this has something to do with Miss Meghan Markle?). Whatever her reasoning is, we sure do want to copy it, and we can this army green blazer.

    Kate stepped out in an adorable gray coatdress a few months ago, but all anyone could think about was the J.Crew black velvet hair tie she had in her hair. The accessory sold out quickly -- a shock to no one -- but the brand still has a number of hair accessories that we're sure Kate would still love.

  • Red Blazer
