Kate Is Back in Her Favorite Skinny Jeans (and the Rest of Her Favorite Outfit, For That Matter)

While Kim Kardashian showed off her post-baby body in her favorite outfit, a white one-piece, Duchess Catherine took a similar approach in a completely different look. The new mom played volleyball in her favorite pre-Prince-George ensemble: skinny jeans, a navy blazer and sky-high wedges. And we can’t stop talking about her bod, hair and overall glow — and her savvy outfit recycling.

During a trip to Canada in 2011, Kate wore the same cropped J. Brand jeans and navy Smythe blazer (which landed her in our “I Really Love My” gallery). The next year, she was a constant presence at the London Olympics in a similar uniform, adding in a striped top and Stuart Weitzman wedges. It was a look almost identical to her outfit at Thursday’s SportsAid charity event in London. The only difference? Her Breton-style Ralph Lauren top is high-neck, not scoop, and her fabulous hair is a bit longer.

So if, like us, you’re ready to incorporate this whole look into your fall wardrobe, we found some pieces for half the price. Try this gold-embellished Calvin Klein blazer (on sale for $67.49!), this striped boat neck shirt from Barneys and these ankle-crop Madewell skinnies. We love a little Duchess-inspired outfit inspiration — not to mention the nudge to hit the gym hard tomorrow.

What do you think of the new mum’s classic (and back-in-her-skinnies) style? Share your thoughts in the comments!

U see this Kim! This is CLASSY. You don’t have to show 75% of your ass and 50% of your boobs to get attention.
Love Kate! So elegant and feminine.

Oi vey. She can’t afford to loose any more weight. Infact adding a few pounds would be nice!

Good Tx Girl on

Man I love her…she just appears to be so normal, so kind, and so classy!

Please don’t even use these two in the same sentence. There is no comparison. Princess Catherine is a classy lady and mommy.

While I appreciate the humor and honesty, Anali, I think it does a dis-service to Kate to mention LardAss in the same sentence. I admire Kate so much. I am SO annoyed and OVER Kim K, I so enjoyed the months she was “hiding” from the public.

whatever on

You can tell she has a little extra on her bones from the first picture (healthy extra!) just look at her feet! The first picture, you can see all her veining and bones! She looks so healthy in the third one! So beautiful!

Would people quit commenting on her weight? I have a very similar body type to this lovely lady. Its a lot of lucky genes.

She looks HEALTHY and LOVELY. Case closed.
