If you worked with Kate Middleton (opens in new tab), 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 (opens in new tab) and copying her suede, block heel Gianvito Rossi pumps (opens in new tab) (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 (opens in new tab).
