    the one thing

    L.K. Bennett, a favorite of Princess Kate, opens in Copley

    It’s hard to believe black espadrille wedges and nude patent pumps could cause such a stir. Then again, they have been the footwear of choice of one very popular royal. The Duchess of Cambridge — Kate Middleton, a woman who finds what works and sticks with it — has been a catalyst for the expansion of British fashion brand L.K. Bennett. Just last month it opened shop in Copley, where offerings include a full range of clothing and accessories. Our pick: this figure-skimming snake print dress, which is an ideal transition piece for late winter to spring. “Prague” dress, $395 at L.K. Bennett, Copley Place, 100 Huntington Ave., Boston, 857-317-8090,
