Not even royalty can resist the power of the basics.
We talk a lot about trends, but if there is something that we love above all things, it is the basics. They are considered classics for a reason: They will never go out of style and are the safest fashion investments you can make when you consider cost per wear.
Even royals aren't immune to the goodness of a great basic. We've noticed a few items that Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle not only own, but continually wear. From trouser style that can really go with anything, to elegant shoes that add instant sparkle to every look, here are the four wardrobe staples that can be found in both duchesses' closets.
#one: White shirt.
Is there anything more chic than a clean white shirt? Paired with black pants like Meghan Markle or colored pants like Kate Middleton, this classic shirt style is a wardrobe staple.
#two: Nude colored studs.
One style of footwear that you will never regret investing in is a classic pair of nude heels. Both Meghan and Kate pair theirs with everything from floral dresses to skinny jeans, and they're almost guaranteed to always be in style.
#3: Skinny jeans.
If there's one wardrobe staple that will come back year after year, it's skinnies. They are comfortable, polished, and look chic paired with just about anything.
Both K-Mid and MM know the power of a good blazer. This tailored garment always looks polished, and it's one of those timeless pieces that you can wear over and over again.
