Kate Middleton is a style icon. She’s been wearing stylish outfits for over a decade and her looks just keep getting better. Like Princess Diana before her, countless people — royal enthusiasts and otherwise — repeatedly look to the Duchess of Cambridge for classic fashion inspiration. Case in point: Just yesterday, Kate took another look at the record books, and you should once again be taking notes.
On Jan. 26, Middleton visited Shout, the mental health service she launched with Prince William, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, at the organization’s office in London. For the outing, she wore a subtle cheetah-print midi dress with buttons down the front, a neck bow and a thick black sash around the waist. Fashionable twisted gold hoop earrings were her only piece of jewelery apart from her famous sapphire engagement ring. However, when we saw the set, our eyes immediately landed on Middleton’s feet, as she’s wearing a really great pair of boots.
Like the Duchess herself, tall black boots never go out of fashion. They can be made in many ways – with a square toe, a block heel, leather, etc. However, Kate’s pick, a pair of Ralph Lauren suede stiletto boots, might be our favorite take on the timeless shoe trend. The options for styling boots are endless – with a dress (as Middleton effortlessly showed), over skinny jeans, or with a leather skirt – the list goes on.
Although Kate’s exact boots are no longer available, we found six lookalikes at Nordstrom, Nordstrom Rack, and Amazon, all under $200. And to top it all, prices start at just $30. So what are you waiting for? Grab a pair of classic boots you’ll wear for years, Kate Middleton style.
