Get inspired by Duchess Kate style with these fabulous lookalikes for less

We've noticed that one of Kate Middleton's favourite dress styles this year is the classic shirt dress – particularly in floral print. And we’re so excited that we can find lookalike floral shirt dresses in the sales! These styles are great classic layering pieces, so you can throw on a cardie or jumper and wear some tights and on-trend chunky boots with a shirt dress for the colder season and be ready to step out when the spring thaw finally comes.

Kate Middleton shirt dresses: A royal favourite

It’s not secret the Duchess of Cambridge is a big fan of the style. She has worn her red flower print dress by Beulah twice this year, including during a visit to London Bridge Jobcentre in September, but that wasn’t the only time we’ve seen the royal wearing the effortless look.

Kate's a big fan of floral shirt dresses, and wears them both in summer and autumn, as seen here in September during a royal engagement in London

In fact, one of our all-time favourite shirt dresses worn by the Duchess of Cambridge made a royal visit to the 2019 Back to Nature Festival in Woking last summer. Kate was stunning a pretty floral 'Aurora' frock by Emilia Wickstead which is now sold out. (You can still get it on sale though, in a plain khaki style.)

While that gorgeous look came with a price tag of nearly £1,500, you don’t have to spend a lot to get a copy Kate outfit. In fact, sales at some of the Duchess' go-tos, including Marks & Spencer and Boden, have similar styles at huge discounts, starting at just £15.
