Kate Middleton's Failsafe Dress-and-Boot Combo Comes Fashion Editor-Approved

Here's how to copy it.

This week, the Duchess of Cambridge visited the offices of a charity called Shout, which is a text service in the UK that provides mental health support 24/7. Her appearance was to mark the milestone of reaching over one million conversations. How impressive is that? For the occasion, Kate Middleton wore a dress by Derek Lam along with suede boots by Ralph Lauren. 

Her outfit combo reminds me of Anna Wintour’s (and just about every other fashion editor's_ very specific uniform: a printed midi dress and knee-high heeled boots. Wintour has worn countless variations of this combination, switching up details like sleeves, prints, and boot styles, though Middleton is no stranger to this formula either. She has chosen it for countless occasions and engagements in the past. 

With the approval of both Middleton and Wintour, it's safe to say this is a foolproof outfit if you want to appear business-like yet stylish. Scroll down for outfit ideas, and shop the combo for yourself.
