You may be admiring Kate Middleton’s, now Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, fashion style. Classic, polished – elegant. But you can emulate her style with these three pieces:

1. Wrap Dress – It is a chic, figure-flattering, and oh-so-effortless dress. A color blocking piece can make you look slimmer. During the day, keep your accessories to a minimum, then opt for a chunky necklace at night for more impact.


2. Trench Coat – You can wear a trend even if you’re living in a tropical country as long as it has breathable fabric. Button it up and wear it as a coatdress. To elongate the neck, try a pair of dangling earrings.


3. Pencil Skirt – Pick out a pencil skirt with a tummy-tucking high waist and a hem that hits right above the knee. Pair it with a a floaty blouse and a blazer for a part-dainty, part-polished feel. To avoid cluttering the canvas, go for a smooth heel and stud earrings.


And of course, while wearing those pieces, move elegantly and confidently.
