A few weeks ago, Kate Middleton went to visit the Dulwich Picture Gallery after spending the morning with the British Hockey team. At her first appointment Kate played it casual and sporty, but fast-forward a few hours and she was the epitome of chic.
Wearing Orla Kiely for the second time, in a short space of time, Kate looked simply stunning in a grey and black dress. Orla Kiely, an Irish brand, have some fantastic clothes in stock (and her prints are to die for) but the items aren't cheap. If you have the money then they really are worth the investment but, if like me, spending around £300 on one dress is a over your budget then I have found you an alternative, or an idea to create your own alternative.
Why not invest in a charcoal grey dress, like this one from The Outnet?
Although not a good match, this dress from Hobbs is a classic Kate dress in a lovely shade of grey and will look great teamed up with the next step I'm about to show you to help you achieve Kate's Orla Kielys's look.
So, the next thing you need to do is hunt out a flower necklace like the two below. The first from Wallis is a great alternative to the embroidery design on the Orla dress and it only cost £15! The second is a different colour (pink) but will compliment the grey dress, especially the Hobbs dress. Plus, no one likes to be an exact Kate clone, it's always good to add a touch of your own personality. It's from New Look and costs £9.99 and at the moment it's part of their buy one get one free offer!
