While thinking about a celebrity look to focus on fresh off the Holidays, I sifted through images of glam New Years Eve looks, nearly blinded by all of the Kardashians in sequins. When I regained my vision I decided that all of those sequin frocks had been tossed to the ground (or eBay) soon after the ball dropped at midnight on December 31st, no matter how fabulous they were. And most of us Non-Kardashians had done the same with our respective dresses, and won’t see sparkle unless a weekend in Sin City is on our 2012 forecast.
With that revelation, I opted to delve into a more classic look worn a week prior to the New Year by America’s favorite new accidental “celebrity” and Style Icon in the making, Kate Middleton. Kate’s look can be worn in any winter month and to venues that don’t serve liquor by the bottle and toss confetti at guests. And it’s timeless, so you won’t have to toss it out the door after 2012. So here’s how to get Kate’s look, and how to get it for less. If your new years resolution is to turn heads, look classic and to save money, Ready, Set, Shop.

The major rule to Stealing Kate’s Style for less is to still keep the pieces simple with minimal embellishment and the colors rich but fairly neutral. Keep your hair and makeup simple – I may need back-up for that one. You can switch the suede out for leather and black out for brown, but be sure it doesn’t look inexpensive – Even if you get things right and it is.
