Kate Middleton style: Longchamp Le Pliage tote
Getting Kate Middleton's style has never been easier: the Duchess of Cambridge has been rocking a host of 'affordable chic' pieces once again (in between the occasional Temperley dress, admittedly!) and during her time at the Olympics, was spotted carrying one of the most universally loved bags around: the Longchamp Le Pliage tote.
This uber practical folding bag with its slim leather handles and pointed sides is recognised the world over and comes in almost any colour you might want it nowadays. Being the sartorially conservative type she no-doubt has to be, Kate has opted for plain black, but the bag looks every bit as classy and elegant in shocking pink. And, of course, you can fold it down tiny if you're travelling light, extending it only when you acquire a sudden extra load (we've all been there with un-planned shopping trips, right?)
