And that means we can expect many more standout maternity style moments from one of our favorite royals, Kate Middleton. Stay tuned.

Just a few days after Kate Middleton’s first public appearance after announcing the birth of her and Prince William’s third child, Kate Middleton made a surprise appearance at a children’s charity event at London’s Paddington train station alongside her husband, Prince Harry, and Paddington Bear (who adorably took Middleton for an impromptu twirl around the platform). 

For the fun occasion, Middleton chose a pink sheath dress by Irish designer Orla Kiely, which she paired with timeless black pumps. The pretty dress is sold out, but its most flattering feature can easily be copied: a contrasting band at the waist. The black band on Middleton’s dress effortlessly accentuates and draws the eye to the smallest part of her waist, but the same effect can also be achieved with a waist belt, which is one of this season’s biggest accessory trends.  

Below, see Middleton’s latest maternity look and shop flattering dresses of a similar style.

Retro seems to be the new normal these days, with styles like flare jeans and round sunglasses more popular than ever. In particular, it’s the retro-chic vibe of the ’70s that keeps delivering the coolest must-have trends time and again. It’s the decade that keeps on giving, with designers pulling various bits of inspiration from its iconic look each season. Right now corduroy is having a moment, and the ’70s-inspired fabric feels so right in all the coolest fall outfits. But the question of how to go about styling a pair of corduroy pants without looking like an extra in That ’70s Show is another story. Corduroy pants are inherently autumnal in nature, so to test the waters of the style, lean into that rich fall color palette, and opt for a pair in burgundy, mustard, or brown. High-waisted, cropped, and flare cuts all look ultra cool with a corduroy finish, and if there’s one styling trick that’s worth knowing, it’s about pairing corduroy pants with a knit sweater or lightweight turtleneck.

Almost ready to jump the gun on the retro pair? Keep reading to see what to wear with corduroy pants to bring the ’70s style into 2017.

There’s one piece of clothing every fashion girl owns. It’s not a dress from an of-the-moment brand or a designer bag or even the season’s It shoes—it’s vintage denim. Yep, you’ll find at least one pair of vintage jeans in their closets. Vintage jeans are a classic standby, but they are definitely having a moment right now. Rigid denim with a high rise and straight legs are winning out over other styles like skinny jeans with stretch that have been popular over the last decade. But where is the best place to buy them?

To find out, we turned to fashion girls to see where they buy their favorite styles. Whether you’re interested in finding true jeans from the ’90s or vintage-inspired denim, we’re bringing you the very best places to buy them.

Go on to shop the best vintage jean brands and find out exactly where fashion girls find the styles they swear by.

“When it comes to shopping IRL for vintage denim, my go-to spots in L.A. are Scout, Lot Stock and Barrel, and Collection LA. I could spend hours trying on different denim fits, which is why I prefer to shop in person for vintage denim, but if I’m shopping online, I always check out Fair Season and Reformation’s vintage stock.” — Michelle Scanga, managing editor
“My go-to brand for affordable, vintage-inspired jeans is definitely Topshop (specifically, their “mom jeans” section). They have the perfect variety of colors (without feeling overwhelming), and I love that they come in different lengths so I can skip the tailor. Plus, with the exception of a few embroidered or limited-edition styles, they’re all under $100, so it doesn’t really get better than that.” — Nicole Akhtarzad, market editor 
“I have always loved OshKosh vintage jeans for their ’90s-girl feel. I wear them with a crop top and simple heeled sandals for a funky going-out look. Something else I’ve been dying to try is getting my jeans Basically, you send them your favorite pair of jeans, and they will !” — Lauren Eggersten, associate editor
“These aren’t technically vintage, but they have a well-worn look that I love. The straight-leg, high-waist silhouette is characteristic of vintage jeans, but you get the benefit of a modern fit.” — Erin Fitzpatrick, news editor
“I prefer vintage jeans that have been reworked to reflect today’s styles, but they can definitely get pricey. Somehow, has lots of cool options, and they’re pretty much always under $100. And it’s not just Levi’s—its also has Wranglers and Lees, in case you want something a little different.” — Allyson Payer, editor
“When it comes to vintage jeans, I have to actually try on a pair to make sure they fit exactly how I want them to. I’ve always had the best luck finding authentic 501’s and other great pairs at my local flea markets because the vendors travel all over in search of the best denim. Pro tip: I always go straight for the men’s section because the fit and quality of men’s cuts are usually better. If I do shop online, I really like what the brand B Sides is doing to make vintage-inspired jeans from super-authentic fabrics.” — Anna LaPlaca, assistant editor
“Vintage-inspired denim is pretty much all I wear. Anything with a high rise, straight leg, and medium wash is my standard. I especially love reworked vintage Levi’s from Re/Done. Their Crawford style is inspired by Cindy’s favorite pair from the ’90s.” — Kristen Nichols, associate editor
