Have you noticed how, suddenly, we’re all looking at neat, demure yet sophisticated dresses? That we’ve taken to shopping for white cropped trousers and fitted navy blazers? That we’re buying sensibly stylish shoes and practical yet chic handbags?
Ladies, you have been mesmerised by the Middleton sisters. Their influence is really quite something – you don’t even know it’s happening. Before you realise what’s going on, you’ve walked into Whistles, Jigsaw, Reiss and Zara, swiped your credit card so many times that it’s losing it’s raised digits, and emerged looking strangely similar to either Kate or Pippa. Add a fabulous blow-dry and a toff boyfriend, and the papps will think you’re the Middleton sister who stays out of the limelight!
