Around the middle of last week, Kate Middleton was spotted at an event at the National Portrait Gallery wearing a coatdress from Jesiré, a brand which was discontinued in August. The interwebs went apesh*t. "How can we mimic her style?" "How can we look 'high street chic'?" "HOW CAN FASHION GO ON?" Fear not, royally obsessed reader. Kate's coatdress may be long gone from stores, but we found 7 replacement options that are just as true to K Mids' classic and conservative style (and there's the added bonus of not wearing the same thing as 5,000 other Kate-crazies). Check out our picks in the slideshow above. Shop our guides to the best trendy coats, jackets, and outerwear.
Since news of the "royal engagement," certain sites (ahem, People mag) have been spazzing out about the adorable Kate Middleton, her ring, dress and more. We showed you how to get Kate's white peacoat look for less, and now comes word that Kate's favorite designer, Katherine Hooker, is coming to the U.S. Starting this winter, you'll be able to shop Kate's looks, like this long tweed coat (above, at right) she wore to to the (British-sounding) Cheltenham Gold Cup. Cheerio! In more exciting parliamentary news, QVC announced that it will be selling a replica of Kate's Sapphire engagement ring. The Kenneth Jay Lane Princess Simulated Sapphire Ring ($39.54) will go on sale this Saturday at 8am. Because the ring used to belong to Princess Dianna, replicas already exist, like this Faux Sapphire Engagement Ring ($59.99, down from $75).
