Last week Pippa Middleton was spotted out and about in the capital, grabbing a spot of lunch with a mystery man at Carluccio’s Restaurant in West London.
While we’ve always been Team Kate all the way, we can’t help halving a soft spot for her younger sister, Pippa. She might be part of the aristocracy and is probably the most eligible bachelorette in the world, but there is something charmingly modest and unassuming about Pips that we just love.
Oh, and she has, like, the best city chic style ever (or at least in the above picture). Wearing a simple navy and black shift dress and blazer, she looked smart, elegant and effortless – here’s how you can do the same…
This simple look is, thankfully, easy to achieve with a bit of know-how and the perfect statement piece – this navy and black shift dress from Joseph effortlessly elegant with just enough edge.
Joseph Navy Bene Leather Wool Shift Dress, £325, available at my-wardrobe.com.
Throw on this must-have tailored black tuxedo jacket from Oasis for extra style kudos – it’s the perfect city-friendly partner to cool-classic shifts.
Single-breasted Black Crepe Tuxedo Jacket, £70, available at Oasis.
If you were wondering, Pippa’s gorgeous black handbag, complete with gold pythons on the front, is from Bvlgari’s Leoni collection and will set you back somewhere in the region of £2,000. If that’s a bit out of your budget (er, yeah) you could always accessorize with one of the Middleton’s favourite high street brands, Reiss. This purse has the glam gold hardware without the hard-to-take-in price tag.
