The Duchess of Cambridge loves to mix high street with high end which makes it so much easier for normal folk like us to copy her enviable style.
But we never thought we’d be able to bag a royal-approved accessory for just a fiver.
We were overjoyed when we spotted the Duchess of Cambridge rocking a pair of Accessorize earrings back in July last year.
Being one of the most affordable pieces she has ever worn, as you can imagine, the high street gems sold quicker than you can say ‘the Kate-effect’.
But our shopping prayers were answered when Accessorize restocked the earrings, and now they’ve gone into the Black Friday sale.
They were already a bargain at £8, but now you can nab them for £5.60. That’s pretty much the same price as our morning coffee!
The pretty Polly petal drop earrings are cast in gold-tone metal with pale pink gems.
The Duchess of Cambridge originally wore these earrings when she visited her Back to Nature Garden at the Hampton Court Flower Festival in July last year.
She teamed the statement earrings with a printed midi dress and her favourite espadrille wedges for a cute summer look.
We’ll be teaming ours with a chunky cream knit and a pair of mom jeans for a cosy winter getup.
Race you to the virtual checkout.
