Gap Day Anyone?

 

The ever stylish Duchess of Cambridge is known to make royal fashionistas watchers salivate with every outfit she wears. Every now and then she even wears something that us non royals can afford! Bless her for her love of a bargain!! So naturally when she wore these patterned skinny ankle grazer trouser from Gap more then the norm of replikaters around the world began snatching them up. The trousers which retail normally for £44.95 pound/$58.61 us dollars were-wait for it-on sale for only £21.99 pounds/$28.67 us dollars. Once again, Kate we thank you for your love of bargains!

img_3732Kate teamed the trousers with a simple white camisole from H&M, and her go to navy blue Smyth blazer. Earlier in the day Kate paired her entire outfit with her Monsoon wedges but later switched her wedges for her favorite go to shoes; her Sebago docks. Complete side note: they’ve become MY go to favorite shoes too!!!

 

Just like the Duchess I wore the same Gap skinny patterned ankle trousers, which I somehow managed to snag. Mind you I bought mine a whole week after she wore them, so to everyone who still wants to own them don’t get discouraged! And as I said earlier I wore my favorite go to shoes. The ever comfy Sebago dockside loafers. Kate really does love comfort. Thanks girl!!

Now for the top half of the outfit I did my own replikate version of her shirt and blazer. Whileimg_3704 Kate wore a plain white top from H&M I choose to wear a plain white turtleneck jewel encrusted shirt. The jewels only surround the neckline which gives it the appearance of a necklace without actually having to wear one. Two birds, one stone people! Lol Her blazer is no stranger to the media either. Her navy blue Smyth blazer is a nice navy color which complements her trouser and pulls the whole look together. Now seeing as I’m not a duchess or even royal-sigh-that blazer is a little out of my price range. Now the fun part of replikating comes in. Finding clothes similar and still have the same feel is both challenging and easy. img_3707Lucky for me I found a perfect navy blazer with same gold accenting buttons on sale for $20 at H&M. Definitely one of my FAVORITE outfits that I’ve replikated to date!

Now if you wanted to wear the trousers for a more relaxed feel definitely loose the blazer. You can always wear it with a plain white shirt or try different colors. I can say a plain red looks really good with it as well. But if you wanted to stick with white, try a shirt with a bit of effect like the one in the picture below. Hope you’ve enjoyed this post!
