Quickly, before it sells out just like everything else she wears.

Fact: Kate Middleton is a fashion icon. Everything she wears sells out almost instantly (in 2015, half an hour after she exited a car and was photographed in a polka dot dress, said frock sold out in all sizes!). And for a very good reason—no one can deny the Duchess’ impeccable sense of style and her ability to masterfully style designer and high street apparel and accessories. In fact, her fashion influence is so strong, there’s a term for it—‘the Kate effect.’ Thankfully, the timeless accessories she picked for one of her most recent looks are still available to shop.

For the opening of The Nook Children Hospice in Norfolk last week, the Duchess of Cambridge stepped out wearing a gorgeous berry-hued skirt suit by Oscar de la Renta—an outfit that she has been spotted in previously—paired with matching accessories (yes, matching your bag and shoes is still a thing).

She carried an elegant clutch by Aspinal of London—a British brand that both she and her sister are huge fans of. The Mayfair clutch is made from calf Italian leather flaunting a patent croc effect. It’s a classic piece that can be styled with literally any evening or special occasion outfit.

Middleton paired it with her go-to Gianvito Rossi ‘Piper’ suede pumps that have an elegant pointy-toe silhouette and 3.5-inch block heels.
