Steal Kate’s Look On A Budget

Designer Peter Morrissey says it’s easy to copy Kate’s prestigious style and offers his suggestions for staying on trend during royal fever. His A/W 2011 range (available at selected Big W stores) has a great Kate Middleton vibe that won’t blow your winter budget.

1. Meet the Parents

Kate chooses dresses that show a little leg without bordering too short. Pairing a patterned dress with a cropped jacket means that you can go from day to evening easily with the right shoes and bag. Handy when going from work to meeting your new partner’s parents!

Peter’s suggestions: Woman by Peter Morrissey Crepe Dress $59.92 and Embellished Jacket in black $59.92.

2. From Lunch to Dinner

Kate is seen constantly wearing a gorgeous Burberry trench. You don’t have to spend thousands on this look. Pair a great stone trench coat with a cute pair of black ballet flats for lunch in winter or over the top of a sexy black dress matched with heels for a dinner date with your prince charming.

Peter’s suggestions: Woman by Peter Morrissey Trench Coat in Stone $89.93 and Long Mesh Dress in black $49.93 or Sleeveless Mesh Dress in black $49.93.

3. Daytime with Friends

For Kate’s uber chic casual look, put on a pair of slim fitting black jeans or pants with a light blouse. This outfit is perfect for lunch with friends, an afternoon at the movies or shopping for the perfect outfit that night.

Peter’s suggestions: Woman by Peter Morrissey Slim fit pants in Black $44.92 and Crepe matt satin top $34.72.
