Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, knows how to hit the clothing sweet spot. Given all the limitations imposed on her wardrobe due to her royal connections, she effortlessly combines chic silhouettes and perfect fits whilst avoiding wardrobe mal-functions that might occur whilst collecting armfuls of flowers from pensioners or posing with babies.
This Jaeger dress is a case in point. It hugs her body without clinging, gives a nod to the maritime museum in Greenwhich that she was visiting yet avoids being over the top literal ahoy sailor-ish. She matched the navy trim on her dress with some sensible yet attractive Alexander McQueen high heels to complete the look.
Best of all, you can nab this look at a bargain price; this dress, which originally retailed at Dhs950, is in the sale racks now. Buy now before it sells out, as 'The Kate Effect' guarantees a rush to the stores to emulate her look.
