Let’s face it, sometimes the outfits worn by Kate that are the most iconic are the ones we love the best – and the ones with the most unrealistic price tags. Sometimes the repliKates for items can be just as expensive as the real things when you are talking about well constructed and classic pieces like Kate’s clothing. One such piece is the Naeem Khan dress that Kate wore to the Taj Mahal visit. A gorgeous dress that we all loved the pattern and design of, but it was sold out and even if it wasn’t would have cost several thousand dollars more than many of us have to spend on one dress.
And sure, there are knockoff versions of the dress on many sites, like Ali Express for under $50. But wearing a knockoff of a dress is likely not something Kate would do – she chooses pieces of impeccable tailoring and quality, even at budget-friendly stores like Zara. Knockoff dresses are passable for certain reasons, but for adding a high quality dress to your repertoire? Not going to cut it. Kate always chooses quality clothing, and if you’re truly trying to repliKate, in many cases so should you!
So what if you have an event this summer that you NEED a repliKate of that dress for? We found a repliKate that you can affordably “borrow” for a few dollars from Rent the Runway. The Yoana Baraschi Pepin Sheath is a great option. With blue and white mesh with embroidery, cap sleeves, a crew neckline and fitted skirt it is perfect for a weekend wedding, cocktail event or daytime reception! You can rent the dress for only $65 for 4 days. Plus, if you’re new to Rent the Runway, you can get an additional 20% off and free shipping.
