Black accents up the polish of Kate’s little red jacket, which she wore on a trip to her alma mater St Andrews. We found a similar style for under $30; add your own skinny black belt and slim turtleneck to complete the look.

Rain Check

Owning a pair of Wellies is practically a requirement of being British! That said, we love this olive green pair from American brand Western Chief just as much as Kate’s Hunters -- and at less than half the price!

One of Kate’s most talked-about “re-wears,” her sailor-inspired McQueen dress looked as lovely at Wimbledon as it did on a trip to Canada. Try the nautical trend for yourself with this cute dress from ModCloth.

Build Me Up, Buttercup

Gray Skies

Rainy weather didn't stop the future queen from turning out to the UK premiere of African Cats. Accompanied by her royal husband, Kate wore a dove gray Matthew Williamson frock with green embellishments on the collar and sleeves.

Looking for a demure sheath like Kate's? Try this Calvin Klein dress ($118 at nordstrom.com). Pop on a big statement necklace or add chunky, bright bangles to your wrists to mirror the duchess's signature style.

Royally Blue

While William is away on military assignment for several weeks, the future queen-in-training has made several solo public appearances, including her first official public speech at a children’s hospice in Ipswich, England. The philanthropic brunette donned a long-sleeved blue dress with a flirty hem above the knee.

Scoping out a royal blue dress to match this royal? Try this Lauren by Ralph Lauren jersey sheath ($134 at nordstrom.com) Pair it with a wide black belt and matching pumps to emulate the duchess.

Luck Be a Lady

Kate did not disappoint in her chic jade Emilia Wickstead coat dress for a visit to the Irish Guards. Emulating another look during her Canadian tour, Kate donned a gold shamrock brooch, once worn by the Queen Mother herself.

For a sleeveless version, we love this deep jade Laviniaturra dress ($158 at yoox.com). Pair with a simple blazer for an easy day-to-night look.

Peachy Keen

Middleton shows off her casual side for a visit to London’s Olympic Park and a meet-and-greet with the women’s hockey team. Before dressing down to tennis shoes and a sweatshirt, Kate sported one of her go-to cropped blazers and impressed in ankle-length peach skinnies.

To emulate Kate, ditch the dresses and pumps for black flats and these Levi’s high rise ankle jeans ($68 at piperlime.com). Toss on a silk scarf and you’ll be ready to conquer spring!

Cropped Cutie

Kate attended a Gary Barlow benefit concert in the South Kensington, London while wearing a Zara lace dress and chic cropped blazer. Although she's been seen in many a blazer, the three-quarter length sleeves really make this dark jacket stand out from the rest.

Looking for a cropped blazer similar to Kate's? Try this Mango jacket (on sale for $54.99 at Mango.com). Pair it with a slimming cocktail dress for evenings out.

Violet Vixen

Swapping out her casual blazers and dark jeans, Kate turned heads with a glamorous purple dress -- cinched at the waist to show off her figure. Kate takes the simple frock to the next level with a diamond maple leaf brooch that was also worn by none other than the Queen herself.

For a similar style, try this Christin Michaels Noelle Wrap Dress ($89 at Zappos.com). Don't have a diamond maple leaf brooch lying around? A chunky statement necklace will kick the frock up a notch.

Style Queen

For a visit to the Americas, the Duchess of Cambridge donned a stylish fitted Smythe navy blazer with cropped, dark J Brand jeans.

Want a jacket to rival Kate's best? Try this Asos Boyfriend Blazer ($99.99 at asos.com). Pair it with your best pair of cropped denim and wedges to replicate the duchess's casual look.

Green Envy

The Duchess of Cambridge found this Diane von Furstenberg green silk dress so fetching that she wore it twice: First at an event in Los Angeles and then again at a yacht party during Zara Phillips’s wedding festivities.

For a similar style you’re guaranteed to wear more than once, check out Alice by Temperley’s ‘Alisha’ dress ($126 at theoutnet.com).

Casual Cool

During their tour of the northern Canadian city Yellowknife the newlyweds took time out from their busy itinerary for a romantic canoe ride to ‘Honeymoon Island.’ Kate dressed down for the jaunt, looking effortlessly chic by pairing her trademark J Brand jeans with a classic tan button down.

Get Kate’s style by wearing your own skinny jeans with Quiksilver’s QSW shirt ($74 at quiksilver.com).

Little White Dress

The Duchess of Cambridge looked summery and sophisticated in this Joseph dress while greeting fans outside Quebec’s City Hall, where the couple attended a ceremony honoring Canada's Royal 22nd Regiment.

Get her look for a fraction of the price with T Tahari’s ‘Julia’ dress ($70.80 at dillards.com).

Accordion Skirt

Kate Middleton looked flawless in the navy and white ensemble that she wore while visiting kids at Inner-City Arts in Los Angeles. Not the types to sit on the sidelines, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge even took part in a children’s painting class, where the down-to-earth princess just threw an apron over the look and joined the fun.

Steal Kate’s style by pairing a navy top with Trina Turk’s ‘Shaye’ pleated skirt ($99.20 at trinaturk.com).

The Loveliest of Trenches

When Prince William and Kate Middleton visited northern Ireland, the bride-to-be was spotted in a very ladylike trench. We love the piping!

Like the look? Try this Eyelet Trench Coat ($149 at Bebe) for rainy days.

So Fascinating!

Not many can pull off a fascinator, but Kate Middleton is the exception. She wore the fun accessory during a visit to the Trearddur Bay RNLI Lifeboat Station.

Daring enough to try the intimidating headwear? Go with the ASOS Sinamay Pill Box Fascinator with Arrow ($44.83 at ASOS).

Lady in Red

We love red on Kate Middleton. During a trip to the University of Saint Andrews she wore the vibrant color that really complimented her tone and style.

Think red will also look good on you? Try this Soho Jacket ($67 at Boden USA). Wear it with a matching skirt just like Kate or with a pair of black pencil pants.

Winter White

Kate Middleton wore Reiss' "Nanette" dress (from last season) for the official engagement photos. Although the dress goes for about $284 and will be available this month as part of the Reiss spring/summer 2011 collection, you might want an even cheaper version of the look.

Consider the Patrizia Pepe Shoulder Pad Fitted Dress ($101.72 at ASOS). Top the number off with a white cropped sweater, and you've got the look!

Velvet Flair

There's no question, the LBB (as in, little black blazer) is this season's must-have. Take the trend up a notch like Kate Middleton by trying a different fabric than the usual -- velvet.

Like the look? We think the Daisy Fuentes Velvet Blazer ($24 at Kohl's) looks just like hers!

Beauty in Blocks

Kate Middleton attended a Christmas reception in England with fiance Prince William wearing a white and black block dress and tuxedo jacket.

We love the style so much, we went on a hunt for something similar. Like it, too? Try the Two-Tone Ponte Dress ($99 at Last Call by Neiman Marcus). Don't forget to pair it with a black blazer.

Wrap Up

We can't get enough of Kate Middleton's classic, easy style. During a night out on the town, she styled herself casual with a beige pashmina and cute riding boots.

We think this Journee Collection Paisly Print Faux Pashmina Scarf ($19.99 at Target) looks just like hers! It's the ultimate cold-weather staple!

Kate's Uniform

Kate Middleton has been known to sport riding boots with light jackets and skinny jeans. You could say it's her signature style.

To get the look, wear these Paris Blues Stretch Black Slub Skinny Jeans ($15 at 15DollarStore.com) with any light jacket and flat boots in your closet.

Sexy Sequins

This Kate Middleton ensemble is ready for a party. Even though New Year's celebrations have passed, this special-occasion outfit will never go out of style.

For the look for less, go with the Sequin Mesh Top Dress ($34.50 at Charlotte Russe). Wear it with flat suede boots with minimal accessories to keep the look classy.
