Kate Middleton's Pussy Bow Blouse Workwear Look Can Easily Be Duplicated For A Fraction Of Her £700 Budget

Is there anyone who has grabbed more style headlines in our time than Kate Middleton? I struggle to think of one. The Duchess Of Cambridge is continuously serving up some of the chicest looks in British fashion, and her clothing choices are unsurprisingly always hotly anticipated. And while all of her outfits are impressive, Kate Middleton's pussy bow blouse workwear look particularly caught the eye of the British public — including myself.

Wearing a vibrant purple pussy bow blouse, wide leg black trousers, a vinyl belt, and cute boxy bag, this could be one of The Duchess' best looks yet. Worn to visit the Henry Fawcett Children's Centre in Lambeth on a royal engagement, Kate looked sophisticated yet cool on her trip. The stunning blouse Kate chose to wear is actually by Gucci, and will set you back an eye-watering £790. Ouch. Her trousers are by Jigsaw, while the cute bag she carried is from Aspinal Of London.

Despite being painfully chic, many have pointed out that Kate (knowingly or not) chose to wear her blouse the wrong way round, with fashion retailer Net A Porter showing buttons being worn at the back, rather than the front how Kate wore hers. The product description also confirms that the buttons should be worn down the back, reading: "Cut from fluid silk-crepe, this style has a loose silhouette and features fabric-covered buttons that run down the back."

Regardless, I think I prefer the buttons at the front, so statement or not, it totally worked in my opinion.

Unsurprisingly, the purple style has sold out in a bunch of sizes already, but can still be snapped up if you happen to win the lottery over the course of the next few weeks. If £790 is out of your price range, I've picked out some of the coolest Kate-inspired work wear pieces, that'll have you looking royal family ready in the comfort of your own office.
