Remember Kate Middleton's Bardot summer dress? We've found a £31.20 lookalike

Recreate the Duchess of Cambridge's look for less

The Duchess of Cambridge's summer wardrobe is a thing of beauty! Boasting a stunning collection of sundresses, we're still in love with the beautiful Bardot style which she wore to a garden party in 2017. Celebrating the Queen's birthday, Kate opted for a ravishing red dress by one of her favourite designers – Alexander McQueen –  to mark the special occasion, and we've just found the chicest £31.20 lookalike.

Red Bardot Dress, £31.20, Warehouse


Warehouse is selling a near-identical version, and it's perfect for summer. Falling to a relaxed midi length, it certainly makes a statement thanks to its off-the-shoulder neckline, cinched waist and tiered hem. Effortlessly elegant, we can see this cherry red number styled with matching wedges and statement earrings for date nights, BBQ's and picnics in the park.

A wardrobe staple, the Duchess wears her designer maxi most summers, recycling it year after year – who knows, maybe it'll make another appearance sometime soon! 

When she first wore it in 2017, Kate accessorised her outfit with nude heels by Prada and drop earrings by Simone Rocha. Wearing her brunette tresses down in loose, beachy curls, she opted for natural and dewy makeup, dusting her eyes in a brown smokey shadow, complete with a hint of rosy blusher and a nude lip gloss – so glam.

The Duchess wore her sundress to the Queen's birthday party

Since then, the mum-of-three has recycled the Alexander McQueen dress to celebrate her mum Carole Middleton's 64th birthday in 2019, which was thought to be held at her sister Pippa and brother-in-law James Matthews' Chelsea home. At the time, the royal added the same earrings but switched up her footwear by opting for matching red heels.
