Kate Middleton is another style icon in the making! She has some rather large footprints to follow (specifically, Princess Diana's size 9A's), but thus far Kate seems to be taking being a style icon in stride. As she and Prince William publicly announced their engagement, all eyes were on the future princess of England in a stunning Issa cobalt blue wrap dress...which then quickly sold out. But finding a similar look will not be a royal pain—here's how.

The simplicity of this blue V-neck dress means it can be easily taken from high tea to a night out on the town. (Or, if you're Ms. Middleton, it's absolutely perfect for a press conference.)

Kate's classic black pumps will be a lifesaver during, say, her various royal events everywhere from Buckingham to Balmoral. While seeking audience with the queen probably isn't on your social calendar, this patent-leather style is nonetheless a staple for any fashion maven.

No, it never graced the finger of Princess Diana, but this sapphire ring and matching pendant necklace will add just a touch of sparkle to your look. Be sure not to overdo it with bling. Unless you're an heir to the crown, understatement is best.
