‘Tis the season for holiday Christmas parties, seasonal soirees and festive engagements. If you’ve got a special event this year, there’s no doubt you want to look princess perfect and who better to seek inspiration from the best of Buckingham Palace.
Here are 6 Holiday Dress Looks Inspired by Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton:
- The Navy Number
Meghan looked stunning on the day before the royal wedding in an asymmetric Barwick $1700 dress by friend Roland Mouret. Featuring angled panels and a boatneck, the dress felt very much like Meghan’s signature style. In fact, the look is such a favorite of Meghan’s that she’s gone on to wear a similar dress on two more occasions including on the royal tour and in Ireland. The waterfall handkerchief front dress would be perfect paired with sparkly earrings for a New Year’s party. Get the style for a steal for less than $100.
2. The Polka Dot Princess Dress
Kate Middleton has become a superfan of polka dot styles. In fact, the Duchess of Cambridge is so enamored with the dotted midi style–she’s worn similar dresses on no less than three occasions this past year including to a Teen Hero Reception, for a stop at Evelina Children’s Hospital and for family portraits with photographer Chris Jackson. Polka dots were once a signature of Princess Diana so it’s not surprising that Duchess Kate would follow the trend. Kate’s Alessandra Rich dress cost a little over $2000. The style would look festive at a dinner party or family function over the holidays. Get the look for less.
