William and Kate go cowboy chic on their overseas tour

Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, might have finished their overseas tour of parts of Canada-and-California, but we're still buzzing. We just can't get enough of the duchess and her confident, elegant style.
The newlyweds are now old pros at dressing for public appearances. While in the U.S., Catherine wore a flowy Alexander McQueen gown to the BAFTA "Brits to Watch" gala, a hand-painted silver dress by Jenny Packham to a charity polo match in Santa Barbara and a white-and-navy ensemble to paint with kids at an art center in L.A.'s skid row. But who knew the royal couple would look so good when they went country in jeans and cowboy hats?
These outfits came out when Kate and William made an appearance at the BMO Centre in Calgary, Canada. The look was a far cry from something the duke and duchess-- would wear to tea with the queen, but it's difficult to watch a lively herd of livestock in heels.

William kicked off the Calgary Stampede in a blue and green tartan plaid shirt, a pair of blue jeans and boots, while Kate wore a pair of dark denim jeans, Temperley London rodeo shirt, boots and a silver buckled-belt. The couple stayed clear of the sun in matching crisp white-cowboy-hats.
To get Kate's look try a white blouse with a prairie feel like the French Connection vintage grace shirt(below, left) for $39.99 at For some-country ruffles try the silk georgette blouse from for $24.80.
