When it comes to creating the perfect off-duty outfit, the Duchess of Cambridge loves a classic Breton stripe top. A huge fan of the trend, she even owns several T-shirts adorned in different coloured stripes from the likes of Me+Em, Ralph Lauren and J Crew. 

Perhaps one of her most iconic styles to date is the sky blue and white version that she wore in 2017 while touring Germany alongside Prince William. Challenging her husband to a hilarious rowing race in Heidelberg, the Duchess turned to Hugo Boss for her chic Breton top, and now we've found a near-identical dupe for £8.95!

Not sure how to style it? Take a leaf out of Kate's book and team it with dark indigo skinny jeans and simple silver earrings. For her 2017 appearance, Kate also wore her brunette hair down in her signature, voluminous curls, and opted for natural and dewy makeup. Combining a soft brown shadow with a rosy blusher and a barely-there pink lipstick, Kate looked absolutely lovely.

Retailing at £60, style your new Breton top with Kate's favourite sneakers and you've got yourself a royal-ready ensemble!

Making headlines as they took part in the boat race, both Kate and William had fans in stitches as they prepared to face off in the competition. Teaming up with Olympic gold medalist – Filip Adamski – Kate jokingly told her crew: "No pressure, but I do want to beat my husband."
