Wardrobe Wednesday

coronation service style

Kate stepped out yesterday looking spectacular in blush pink at the Queen’s 60th Coronation Service at Westminster Abbey. Her bespoke Jenny Packham coat and dress, Jane Taylor millinery hat, LK Bennett pumps and Alexander McQueen box clutch were positively perfect for such an event.

While you may not be attending any coronation services anytime soon, you can repliKate this look for date night, your cousin’s wedding, Sunday church, or any warm weathered event that calls for a dress!

Invest in this adorable, absolutely fabulous, and nearly-perfect Marks and Spencer birdcage fascinator. You will find somewhere to wear it, I promise you. It is a nearly perfect match for Kate’s!

Invest in one of these lovely blush pink lace dresses. This one from Maggy London flaunts slimming lace panels and a sheath cut similar to Kate’s. Or choose this dress by Adriana Papell with scalloped edging just like the Duchess.

Invest in these Nine West “Maximus” pumps to your closet. They are truly a staple at a great price. If you haven’t invested in a pair of nude pumps by now, get your Visa right.this.second. You won’t regret it.

Steal this light pink tuxedo jacket, with similar seaming and styling to Kate’s, for chilly evenings.

Steal a rhinestone cuff bracelet similar to Kate’s. It will add the perfect amount of sparkle to your outfit!

Steal this box clutch from Lulu Townsend at DSW. The nude shade will match everything, the floral clasp is adorable, and the size is perfect for an iPhone and a tube of Bobbi Brown lipstick.
