Over the weekend I stumbled upon a Pinterest board devoted to pictures of Kate Middleton before she was became a very polished royal (rather like this one).
Most of her looks are strikingly normal, some are a bit rough, and some show that she can put together an elegant ensemble all by herself (thank you very much).
And I was reminded how often she relies on a classic fitted blazer to pull any look together – particularly those that start with a pretty dress. (Image courtesy of InStyle)
This is a very easy style to copy – and a great blazer is always a great everyday style item to have on hand.
I was delighted to find this Aqua Cutaway Blazer (Made in the USA; $98) at Bloomingdale’s that looks exactly like something Kate would wear – but for under $100.
This Aqua Crinkled Blazer in White or Black is an even more affordable ($78) – and washable – option.
