The Duchess of Cambridge is forever serving up truly great style moments, and on her and the Duke of Cambridge’s recent trip to the Bahamas this year we got to see her in plenty of summer outfits, something we don’t often get to see from Kate thanks to the inclement British weather!
One dress that she wore on the trip caused quite a stir for being particularly trend-forward. Normally, the Duchess opts for fairly classic looks, but this dress from cult brand RIXO featured an on-trend swirly zebra print in bubblegum pink. With three-quarter length sleeves, button-up collared neckline and a midi length, Kate Middleton’s RIXO dress still a fairly demure dress, but the puffed shape of the sleeves and the exaggerated dropped waist bring things right up to date.
Naturally, the dress sold out almost instantly on the RIXO website, but thankfully for all of us who missed out the first time round, it’s just come back into stock. It’s still available in all sizes from UK 6-20, too – but we wouldn’t bank on that being the case for very long, considering its now royally-approved credentials.
At £245, Kate Middleton’s RIXO dress is certainly not the most purse-friendly dress you could buy this summer, but if a Duchess-approved dress is what you’re after, this certainly fits the bill. It’s bright colour makes it the perfect wedding guest dress, while the midi length and longer sleeves mean this dress could easily be worn through autumn and winter paired tights and cropped jacket.
Kate styled her RIXO dress with her trusty Castañer espadrille wedges that we’ve seen her in multiple times before – as well as Meghan Markle, too. In neutral tones, these wedges go with everything, from dresses and skirts to jeans and smart trousers.
