Kate Middleton Just Wore This $69.90 Dress & Styled it With a Modest Twist

We all saw the cream Alexander McQueen frock coat she wore the other week at St George’s Chapel in Windsor for the wedding of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry. However, Kate Middleton is queen of the high low mix and also loves a bargain just as much as the rest of us.

Yes, just like the rest of us, she’s not above indulging in a spot of Zara shopping. Yesterday the new mother wore Zara’s flocked print dress in sky blue to attend the Houghton Horse Trials, an equestrian event in Norfolk in the east of England.

The pale blue dress which sits just at the knee, features an elastic Bardot style neckline, with puff sleeves and elastic cuffs. The sleeves and torso are embellished in velvet effect floral applique and sequin embroidery in dark blue. It is cinched at the waist with an obi-style belt in the same contrasting shade of dark blue. Kate wore her own dress more modestly than the way it was styled on the Zara website, however, showing rather less of her shoulders than the promotional shot below.

She accessorized with a navy tote bag with brown leather straps from the brand Little Makes Big, somewhat more expensive at $142.81. Keeping your main item cheap and cheerful while splurging on your accessories is a trick that every fashion girl knows. It immediately makes your ensemble look more expensive than it actually is.
