Wardrobe Wednesday: Polka Dot Princess

wardrobe wednesday 1

Kate’s style never disappoints, as she showed us how to look Spring-chic last Friday. Her polka dot dress and black jacket was perfect for the formal outing at Warner Bros Studios in Leavesden. For our less royal pursuits, you could rock this style with black flats and a black Longchamp out to Sunday brunch, followed my grocery shopping, followed by a stroll in the park!

Kate’s TopShop dress sold out in seconds, and her Ralph Lauren jacket and Episode “Angel” pumps are no longer for sale, but you can get the look (for MUCH less!) with these items, specially selected by WWKD.

INVEST in this fantastic black peplum jacket from Mango. Although it lacks the pockets on the sides, its collarless feature and peplum detail ┬ámake it nearly a dead ringer for Kate’s jacket.

STEAL this polka dot dress from H&M. Polka dot trends change frequently (large? small? black? red?), so the money you save on this piece definitely makes up for the cost of the jacket.

STEAL theses suede platform pumps from Dorothy Perkins. Suede can look dowdy very quickly, so unless you’re willing to take EXTRA good care of them, including frequent trips to the cobbler (yes, they still exist), special coatings, safe storage, etc…get an adorable pair like these! And they’re on SALE!

    Great find on the H&M dress! While I’m not sure if I could pull off polka dots myself, it’s always worth the trip to the store to find out! :)
