There's nothing more comforting than the normalcy of seeing Kate Middleton hurrying from one place to another in a sweeping wool coat, just as she did this week visiting the Abergavenny Market in a dashing green number coordinated to hubby Prince William's knit sweater. But business as usual is not what caught our eye in this particular outfit. No, rather it was Kate's delicate gold hoops that, subtle as they were, we couldn't take our eyes off.

Interestingly enough, while her Sportmax coat — an old favorite of her's from the brand's 2015 collection — originally cost somewhere in the thousands, her exact earrings are just $15 from ASOS. The ASOS Design Gold-Plated Twist Hoop Earrings are the platonic ideal of everyday hoops; they're big enough to be more visible than a huggie, not too large that they'd get in your way or clash with other jewelry, and they feature a timeless twist detail that sets them apart from the rest.

Kate may be a duchess, but she's the queen of the high-low fashion moment to us, and her earrings are glowing proof that you don't need to spend fast and loose to look expensive. We're taking cues and shopping her exact earrings, plus several other affordable styles (all under $30!) from Amazon, below.
