- Kate's Zara pants retail for $50 and are still available to purchase.
If you worked with Kate Middleton, she would be the best-dressed woman in your office.
Proof: The absolutely perfect work wear ensemble the Duchess of Cambridge wore this week.
On Wednesday, Kate stepped out for a surprise appearance at the Sunshine House Children and Young People's Health and Development Center in a business casual appropriate outfit that you'll want to own yourself.
Here's the bad news: Most of Kate's look was, somewhat predictably, not the most affordable for the non-royals among us. Her polka-dot Equipment silk shirt retails for $280 at Bloomingdale's and copying her suede, block heel Gianvito Rossi pumps (which appear to be the brand's Piper style) will set you back $695.
She does look like a million bucks—which makes the actual price of the two pieces (roughly $975, combined) seem like a bargain.
Here's the good news though: The wide-leg, culotte-style pants Kate wore to the event are from Zara and retail for a totally affordable $50.
And, if you're looking to splash out on the pricier pieces from the look, you can shop them below:
