WHAT'S NEW IN KATE'S CLOSET
Kate debuted one new piece from her closet this week:
Below are my favourite repliKates of the week:
MIX & MATCH
Kate's outfits are always impeccable but can sometimes be a little too formal for most of us to wear on a daily basis. In this occasional segment, I'll show how you can create everyday repliKate outfits by mixing and matching key pieces!
Some of you snapped up Kate's red Zara swing coat after she wore it to the Royal Windsor Horse Show with her white Dolce & Gabbana lace dress. I know many of you thought this was an odd pairing (including me) so I thought I'll sure how best to wear a swing coat!
Trapeze-style jackets should only be worn with form fitting pants or skirts to counter the broad, triangular shape of the jacket. Wearing loose pants or skirts can create an overall widened and bulky shape to your figure. Below I've teamed a repliKate swing jacket with Kate's favorite ME+EM breton top and black Topshop skinny jeans. I've finished the outfit with repliKates of some of Kate's popular accessories.
For the office, team the swing jacket with a pencil skirt, dot-printed blouse and timeless black suede pumps.
There are countless variations of this ensemble which you can try at home with your own closet favorites. But just remember: keep the bottom half form-fitted!
You can now get your hands on the Saloni 'Mary' illusion gown! Kate dazzled in this gown at the pre-tour reception held at Kensington Palace, ahead of their visit to India and Bhutan.
If you have $2610 lying around, you can now pre-order Kate's royal tour Alexander McQueen paisley-print separates :) SHOP >

Each week I like to devote a little time browsing the websites of Kate's favourite brands and designers. Following the debut of the Alexander McQueen 'Obsessions' dress, it motivated me to have a look at the designer's other ready-to-wear pieces. I came across these Duchess-worthy styles:
