1. tennis Sweater + Straight-leg Trousers

Wimbledon-inspired athleisure is a major trend this fall, but you definitely won’t be seeing a duchess like Kate Middleton rocking a pleated mini or workout dress. Go for a white cable knit with red or blue (or both) detailing and a classic V-neck instead, worn over joggers or pants with a looser silhouette. Every bit as comfortable as sporty tennis whites, but with a bit more polish for everyday wear.

2. shades Of Brown

Who says brown has to look boring? Meghan Markle’s monochrome ensemble is proof this hue can look just as glamorous as jewel tones, provided you opt for luxe fabrics like suede, velvet, silk and cashmere. Feel free to mix and match shades we well, just like Meghan does here.

3. classic Trench Coat + Patterned Midi

We love the idea of pairing a structured British staple, like a beige trench coat, with a more boho piece, like a flowy midi covered in whimsical feathers, for an unexpected and fun combination. Finish with a few dainty bracelets and necklaces and some neutral-hued shoes a là Camilla Parker-Bowles and you’ll be all set for whatever the day has in store.

4. plaid Tailoring + Easy Accessories

Princess Victoria of Sweden knows how to take a workwear staple like a tailored suit and make it feel less stuffy. Simply opt for a light-colored plaid, like her sky blue and purple combo, and finish with a brown shoulder bag and matching ankle booties. If you really can’t live without a little bling, try some Baroque pearl earrings or a summery beaded bracelet over gold chains or gems.

5. moody Florals + Slouchy Boots

A high-neck dress with a ruffle hem might feel a bit too fancy for a casual lunch with friends, but once you add in some slouchy suede boots like Princess Eugenie, the whole look becomes much cooler and less prim. Continue that vibe by adding a cropped leather moto or denim jacket once temperatures really start to drop.

6. quilted Jacket + Black Skinny Jeans + Loafers

Yes, there is a royal way to rock cabincore. Swap the flannel shacket for a quilted topper and hiking shorts for easy black skinny jeans. Finish with some loafers and a messy (or at least messy by duchess standards) bun and you’ll be ready for the chicest nature walk of your life. Thanks for the inspo, Meghan!

7. colorful Top + Printed Midi + High Boots

It’s easy to fall into a rut of wearing only neutral or dark hues come fall and winter, but as Queen Letizia of Spain proves here, vibrant red can feel just as seasonally appropriate. So too can deep greens, leaf-inspired oranges and yellows, vibrant purples and even rosy pinks. Pair a colorful sweater or blouse with a skirt that incorporates some of the same colors, then finish with sleek knee-high boots.

8. blazer + White Tee + Blue Jeans

There are multiple ways to rock this timeless fall getup, but we love the KMiddy way. Choose a slim-fit, two-button blazer, a silky white tee tucked into clean, blue-wash, straight-leg jeans and, of course, a pair of the duchess’s favorite white Veja sneakers.

9. statement Headband And Belt + Camel Coat
