Kate Middleton's $23 J.Crew Accessory Just Made Her Outfit

Kate Middleton is no stranger to triple-digit-price designer pieces, from Jenny Packham dresses to Alexander McQueen coats, so when she steps out in an ultra-affordable item, you can bet we take notice. Attending an event in Leicester this week, the Duchess of Cambridge wore a J.Crew Velvet Hair Tie ($23) that we want ASAP. A cute hair bow is the easiest outfit add-on that still packs a punch, and now that it's royalty-approved, it's pretty much a no-brainer.

Of course, we love the rest of her outfit as well. She wore a coatdress with tights and Tod's heels, along with the Aspinal of London Midi Mayfair Bag ($725). You might remember that she and sister Pippa both wore the bag brand back in September, causing a shopping frenzy for the sleek British bags. The brand's top-handle silhouette is ideal for Middleton, who hasn't worn a shoulder bag (among other trends) since becoming a royal.

Associate Director, Fashion News

Erin got her start as a Who What Wear intern over 13 years ago—back when the site only published a single story per day. (Who What Wear has since increased that number twentyfold.) She graduated magna cum laude from USC, which is how she ended up moving to Los Angeles from her hometown of San Diego. In college, she also interned at Refinery29, where she was promoted to editorial assistant and then assistant editor. After nearly three years at R29, she came back to WWW in 2016, where she currently holds the title of Associate Director of Fashion News (as well as the unofficial title of resident royal expert—in case you haven't noticed her numerous Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton stories). She spends her days trying to incorporate her idols, Anna Wintour and Roger Federer, into as many stories as possible. Outside of work, she loves tennis, classic rock, traveling, and smothering her dog with affection.
