Kate Middleton brightened up in colored jeans last week when she paid a visit to the women's olympic field hockey team in London.

No stranger to looking stylish, the Duchess, 30, was working two trends at once: brightly colored denim and the shade tangerine — Pantone's color of 2012!

If you want to copy the royal's fashion-forward look, try on these pairs for size that suit every budget.

SPLURGE
On the left is J Brand's "811" mid-rise skinny jean, which the Duchess loved so much (she wore the style in dark blue last fall), she bought them in the eye-popping hue above ($176, jbrandjeans.com). Kate is no stranger to slipping into Paige's soft-as-butter denim, and the label's "Verdugo" ultra skinny jeans ($169, paigeusa.com) in a this pretty coral shade boast a cotton/spandex blend for a curve-hugging fit.

STEAL
On the left is Charlotte Russe's denim skinny jean in coral ($29.99, charlotterusse.com), which have just the right amount of stretch to them. On the right is a pair of Camden Skinny Jeans ($85, us.longtallsally.com) in bright peach from the brand Long Tall Sally — a label that specializes in garb for tall women like the Duchess, who stands at a long and lean 5 foot, 10 inches.
