We've noticed that one of Kate Middleton's favourite dress styles 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 multiple times, including during a visit to London Bridge Jobcentre in 2020, but that wasn’t the only time we’ve seen the royal wearing the effortless look.

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 nearly everywhere (although we did manage to find one - keep reading!).

While that gorgeous look came with a price tag of nearly £1,500 ($2,000), you don’t have to spend a lot to get a copy Kate outfit. In fact, sales at some of the Duchess' go-tos like Boden or & Other Stories, have similar styles at huge discounts. We've tracked down Duchess-Kate style floral dresses for as little as £17 ($24.50).
