Recreating Royal style – winter wear

It’s the middle of December, and almost Christmas, so what better excuse to treat yourself, or another Royal fan to something they will love? Whether its wrapping up warm against the weather or showing off you sparkle at the office party, take a look at these matches to

Baby, it’s cold outside! A brand that not only supplies The Duchess of Cambridge with gloves, but also The Queen, Cornelia James uses merino wool to keep your hands warm. The cute bow detail ensures the outfit stays elegant.

Kate has worn these gloves a number of times over the years, and they are available in 11 colours – the Duchess has black in the Imogen style, and also navy in another style.

The teal skirt that Catherine wore back in 2014 is a perfect base for a party outfit. The original is from Jenny Packham, but these matches are just a fraction of the price. Team with a black and mesh top and heels to copy Kate’s look, or a black blouse and an updo for a more chic style.

Sophie, Countess of Wessex is a big fan of her white Prada coat. Steal her style with these options, and look chick in the cold weather, and team one of these with a black polo neck jumper and heeled boots.

Wrap up warm in a brown shearling/faux fur jacket, just like Kate. The one she wears, from LK Bennett, is still available, with a new name, for almost £900, or you can snap up a cheaper one. Take a look:

For those of us who only go to church at Christmas, you probably need a hat. All of these match or emulate designs worn by Catherine, Sophie and even Camilla, who is partial to a fascinator despite her love for large hats.

Take your pick – or take them all!
