What. A. Day. A GIRL’S DAY. How lucky are we to see the sisters-in-law out together at Wimbledon? And this means we have two great looks to admire. Let’s pretend that this post is about you and your bestie going out for Sunday brunch. I wonder if the Duchesses had brunch before Wimbledon. Probably.

What makes these looks royal
- Being a more casual event, this looks have a little more pizzazz than the typical demure looks we see
- Kate’s look has two fun details: the dot pattern (doesn’t it remind you of little tennis balls!) and the draping details
- Meghan is serving us some classic Americana in blue striped button down and wide-legged white trousers
Picks for a princess
Unfortunately we can’t buy Kate’s bespoke Jenny Peckham, but we can cruise the website to see some serious fashion. Here are some luxe alternatives: the Zac Posen dress has a fun pattern on a white background, a similar knee length, and subtle draping details. The Chiara Boni white dress has more stand-out draping. Did you know that Kate is the royal patron of the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club? This post is now ‘How to Dress like a Royal Patron.” I think that is a little extra fancy.
Going like hotcakes on the Ralph Lauren website! Ouch those prices hurt me a little bit, but talk about a look with impact! I don’t think Meghan is a royal patron yet, but I’m sure her time will come. As will mine, and yours.
Picks for a Peasant
Great, summery peasant picks! I could wear any of these being patron of my backyard pool.
And now for Meghan’s separates. I have to say, this is an extremely accessible look! You can find a blue striped button down basically anywhere (here are just two). And those pants are so similar from Kohl’s- I’m floored!
Are you the Kate or the Meghan for your BFF brunch? I’d say I’m the Kate in the Lost + Wander dress. I don’t usually lean towards separates but I may take a trip to Old Navy and Kohl’s and give this look a shot, because why not! And if I’m being a patron of the backyard pool after brunch I probably need a wardrobe change anyway.
