Kate Middleton's Most Affordable Looks
One of the reasons why the Duchess of Cambridge gained the love of the British people was her humility and down-to-earth vibes. Despite being able to buy from the most expensive clothing brands, Kate has appeared at major Royal events in extremely affordable clothes, proving that elegance has no price tag. Let’s discover some of her prettiest looks that many normal people could buy too!
SHIRTDRESS FROM MICHAEL KORS
On December 27, 2019, the Duchess of Cambridge visited the Kingston Hospital’s Maternity Unit.

It’s a little pricey for many people, but definitely not too crazy.
DRESS FROM ZARA
A lot of people around the world buy things from Zara because there are all kinds of options in different price ranges. In 2018, the Duchess of Cambridge attended the Maserati Royal Charity Polo Trophy in a pale blue, white-striped dress from the brand. That little number only cost $70, and it was perfect for such an event.
NUDE SUEDE HEELS FROM J. CREW

The shoes cost $218, which is a bit pricier than some of her other items but not as outrageous as other brands.
PRINTED BLOUSE FROM ZARA
