Workwear inspiration: The Duchess of Cambridge
Back in January, Duchess Kate donned a vibrant teal coat for a visit to Stockwell Gardens Nursery and Pre-School. Looking as lovely as ever, the mum-of-three completed her ensemble with a Sézane merino wool jumper, black skinny jeans, and Chelsea boots from Russell & Bromley.
Kate's pretty much an expert when it comes to color-blocking, and we're still obsessed with this outfit. Nailing her autumnal look, she tucked her burgundy jumper into forest green Jigsaw culottes, accessorising with her trusty Tod's pumps and a matching Chanel handbag.
Heading to Evelina London, Kate recycled her favourite Dolce & Gabbana co-ord, which consisted of a button-up jacket and a matching flared skirt. Her hair was teased in a half-up, half-down style and her makeup looked as flawless as ever!

Ravishing in red, the Duchess certainly looked the part when she stepped out in an Armani pencil skirt complete with a ruched, round collar blazer. Keeping her accessories neutral, she sported a textured woven clutch by Etui Bags and her Rupert Sanderson Malory pumps.
Last year Kate attended Shout's Crisis Volunteer celebration event alongside Prince William. Effortlessly elegant, she donned a simple white top, a grey check blazer by Smythe and a pair of burgundy cropped trousers from Joseph, as well as black block heel shoes.
You can never go wrong with a pussy-bow blouse! Looking oh-so-glamorous, Kate visited the Henry Fawcett Children's Centre, tucking this silky Gucci number into navy high waisted trousers from Jigsaw.

Workwear inspiration: The Duchess of Sussex
Love a power suit? We're taking major style cues from the Duchess of Sussex. Attending the WellChild awards at the Royal Lancaster Hotel in 2018, Meghan wore an Altuzarra suit and a blouse by Deitas.
When it comes to wearing pencil skirts, Meghan certainly reigns supreme. Teaming her green blouse from & Other Stories with a matching BOSS leather skirt and a cream coat by Armani, she styled her brunette hair in a loose chignon and opted for natural makeup.
Searching for a more casual look for the office? Take a leaf out of Meghan's book and pair your black jeans with statement stilettos and a peplum blouse.

Back in 2019, the mum-of-two recycled her favourite turquoise dress from Hugo Boss. Meeting with members of the Board of Trustees of the Princess of Asturias Foundation, she finished her ensemble with ivory heeled pumps and a clutch bag.
Workwear inspiration: The Countess of Wessex
Understated yet extremely chic, the Countess of Wessex donned a black streamlined blazer and a white pencil skirt to visit Gatten and Lake Primary School in 2014.
