Kate Middleton is a culotte queen! The Duchess of Cambridge’s typical uniform consists of feminine, floral-print midi dresses, so when she steps out wearing anything else, we notice — as is the case for her culottes.

Over the past few months, Kate has worn three different pairs of the stylish wide-leg trousers on three separate occasions — so it’s safe to say, she’s obsessed, and so are we. As the Duchess has proven (see below), the mid-calf cropped pant is versatile enough to be worn with anything from a dressy blouse and heel to a t-shirt and sneakers, making them the perfect piece to wear between seasons. With styles ranging from relaxed khaki culottes to dressy pleated culottes, the Duchess has quite a few different versions of the trendy trousers in her closet.

If you want to add a little flare to your fall wardrobe (a la Kate), scroll down to shop nine Duchess-inspired culottes from Amazon — all under $34.

A trip to the garden calls for a more casual pant (a.k.a. — not jeans) — which is why Kate opted for a pair of relaxed camel-colored culottes to unveil her Back to Nature Garden. The breezy, wide-leg trousers are a step above casual, yet stylish and comfortable enough to move around freely in.
