There’s nothing that fills us with more joy than when our favourite style icons wear a high street look that we can actually afford to copy – until said look goes into the sale, that is.
Kate Middleton’s gorgeous & Other Stories midi dress, which she wore for the official Cambridge family pictures taken in the RHS Back To Nature garden she designed for Chelsea Flower Show, is the perfect example.
The easy, breezy style was priced at less than £100 and ticked all of our boxes – perfect sleeves, ideal length, beautiful print and more. But as you might expect, the Kate effect meant that it sold out almost instantly, leaving many fashion fans heartbroken that they hadn’t managed to add it to their wardrobes before the rush.
However, now there’s a new way to get the Kate look, thanks to the & Other Stories promotions section (where you can already find affordable pieces, even before the brand launches its big post-Christmas sale) where a skirt in the very same fabric is currently reduced. The piece is now just £33, cut from its original price of £65 – a saving of more than £30 overall.
While it’s not an exact match for Kate’s style, it’ll be pretty darn close – especially if you team it with the £8 Accessorize earrings she chose for the occasion too. Plus, you can mix and match it with other pieces, making it even more versatile than the original.
Kate isn’t the only royal fan of the high street brand – sister-in-law Meghan wore a £69 green silk shirt from the shop for a walkbout in Chichester last year. So if you don’t manage to shop Kate’s style this time, keep your eyes peeled for the next time the family step out, because they might just spotlight another amazing affordable find!
