Gone Girl lead actress Rosamund Pike is on a roll. Her latest project? Collaborating with British brand L.K.Bennett on a collection of carryalls. With clean lines and eye-catching leathers, her namesake styles – the Rosamund and its smaller sister, the Rosie – are poised to become the next attainable It bags.

On the appeal of L.K.Bennett’s sophisticated look, Pike gushes to InStyle: “I think that L.K.Bennett is the perfect brand for the working woman because it gives you that ability to feel dressed and polished without feeling overdone.”

And the totable, boxy satchels do just that. I’m envisioning the reptilian ones on my arm at the office, at the supermarket, and pretty much everywhere.

You already adore tea time and English bulldogs. Now pull these L.K.Bennett pieces from across the pond for an ensemble that is classically British and undeniably elegant.

1. We’d argue that this flattering sheath dress in an artsy bouquet print is royally approved.

2. A structured red bag? As iconic as a London telephone booth. Petite and polished, this one has enough room to stow away necessities (including cat eye shades and lipstick, of course).

3. Navy patent pumps quickly elevate any look and keep you comfortable on your feet.

Grab these and other ladylike essentials in our L.K.Bennett Boutique, which opens Friday, September 26, at 11AM ET.

It’s no secret that the Duchess of Cambridge has some serious style. But her put-together polish isn’t just reserved for royals. Here, our fashion director shows us how to recreate Kate Middleton’s refined look in three easy steps.

  1. Start with a fitted sheath in a neutral or pastel hue.
  2. Keep accessories minimal. A simple box clutch and diamond studs will do the trick.
  3. Step into a pair of nude patent heels to tie everything together (the Duchess swears by them).
