Wedding season brings about one of life’s greatest challenges: dress shopping. Thankfully, just in time for the hunt, Kate Middleton has inspired us with yet another spectacular outfit. Last Wednesday, the Duchess chose a fire-engine-red off-the-shoulder maxi by Alexander McQueen (the design house that made her unforgettable wedding gown) for a garden party in Berlin. She completed the head-turning look with a pair of statement earrings and cream Prada shoes.
Although the Duchess usually opts for looks that are more timeless, this dress definitely veers into trendy territory with its Bardot neckline. But that maxi hemline and loose silhouette gives it a hit of breezy class. If you love this look but aren’t prepared to spend roughly two thousand dollars to copy it, we understand. Click through this collection of equally bold and pretty alternatives to Kate’s outfit, ranked from cheapest to major splurge.
