Kate Middleton’s Commonwealth Games outfit: Dupes for her designer white suit


The Duchess of Cambridge constantly demonstrates her sartorial status, and at the Commonwealth Games on Tuesday, August 2, Kate Middleton once again proved her styling skills by recycling an elegant white suit believed to have been from Alexander McQueen.

Kate was spotted alongside husband Prince William and daughter Princess Charlotte watching the 1500m freestyle swimming event in Birmingham. Charlotte was seen pulling faces in the crowd and the family’s interactions with each other were a major talking point. But for us, it was Kate’s chic ensemble that stole the show.

Going for a head-to-toe tonal look, Kate wore a designer white suit – a single-breasted blazer with tapered trousers, which she wore with a silver buckle belt. She accessorized her outfit with silver earrings and a matching necklace.

The Duchess is clearly a fan of tonal tailoring as she wore a very similar ensemble in June to the unveiling of the National Windrush Monument in London and even wore this exact costume in March to meet the Prime Minister of Jamaica.

Of course, if you don’t have a budget for a royal wardrobe, the exact price of his Alexander McQueen costume probably won’t be within your reach. So naturally we’ve found alternatives, so you can recreate Kate’s look for less – we think they’ll get the royal stamp of approval as the Duchess is a fan of high-street brands.

If you like the idea of ​​a head-to-toe white ensemble, but want a more casual look than Kate’s, Warehouse’s blazer and pants are the perfect choice. The blazer is more oversized than the Duchess’ Alexander McQueen number, but it offers a great way to tap into the trend, and it looks particularly versatile. The pants are high waisted and have a slim silhouette. Although the pieces look great worn together, they would also work well as separate pieces.

Asos Design mix and match jumpsuit: £58, Asos.com


Of course, Asos has the perfect white suit. This two-piece is ivory, so slightly offbeat, but at £60 it’s the perfect way to emulate Kate’s love of tonal tailoring. The blazer looks snug thanks to its slightly oversized silhouette. Just like the Duchess’ trousers, these feature a belt hoop, so we’d recommend wearing this white belt (£44.99, Markrussellecuir.fr), which looks a lot like the one Kate wore.
