Prince William and Princess Kate just finished their first North American tour as husband and wife. Although their itinerary was set mostly in Canada, all the world was watching as Kate stepped out for each event in impeccable style. Her summer tour centered around several basic pieces: a crisp navy blazer (she paired it with jeans and dresses), a set of feminine frocks (her favorites had pleats and ruching), tailored skinny jeans (in a dark wash) and one pair of fabulous nude pumps (they go with everything!). Her accessories were dainty, but fabulous, and included diamond studs and a very chic box clutch. Get princess-inspired style for yourself with these Kate Middleton-inspired pieces:
1. Bony Levy Diamond Pillow Earrings ($3350)
Royalty has its perks, and jewelry is certainly one of them! Play like a princess in these stunning diamond studs. Pair with anything from a trim dress to a chic blazer and jeans to channel Kate Middleton’s royal style.
2. Smythe One-Button Blazer ($455)
One of the hottest blazers out there, thanks to Princess Kate.

Its Italian wool silhouette is finished with a notched lapel, gold-tone buttons, and princess seams.
3. Parker Wrap Dress ($242)
Demure and a little daring, this Parker wrap dress plays off of Kate’s love of creamy colors and body-flattering drapes and pleating. This silk dress is fitted with a shawl collar, crossover v-neck, ruching, three-button cuffs, and long blouson sleeves.

Simple, but still statement-making, Kate carried a little box clutch for many of her daytime events. Perfect for cocktail hour, this version from Nordstrom features a woven texture in a hand-held size.
