It's been quite awhile since Kate Middleton's made a public appearance, gracing us with sophisticated outfit ideas and a reason to shop. Finally, the duchess is back from her maternity leave, and she looks fresher than ever in a Ralph Lauren houndstooth dress, complete with a thin leather belt and a preppy collar. The piece is an obvious workwear staple for Autumn with its preppy details, relaxed fit, and neutral print that feels polished when paired with a few luxe accessories like Kate's.
We're re-creating Kate's look, from her shirtdress to her Stuart Weitzman pumps and Mulberry clutch. Read on to see a few more angles of the duchess paying a visit to The Anna Freud Centre, then pick up her business-casual essentials and strut confidently into the office tomorrow morning.
