When Princess Kate first debuted a white Self Portrait blazer dress in September 2021, royal fashion fans couldn’t get enough of the look - and on Tuesday she stepped out in another version of the designer piece.

The Princess of Wales, 41, looked stunning in the label's glamorous 'White Metallic Bouclé And Chiffon Midi Dress', which consists of a bouclé tweed belted and buttoned jacket and fluid pleated chiffon skirt. She accessorised with show-stopping black Aquazzura heels and a black leather clutch bag.

Kate's exact dress is currently sold out, but Matches Fashion has the same piece in a pale pink hue that's still available to shop for £460.

The mum-of-three has previously worn a pure white version of the elegant midi dress before. Once to a reception evening celebrating the publication of her photography book Hold Still, and a second time at the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Party at the Palace the following year.

Cut from bouclé, chiffon and fine lace, at first glance it appears to be a matching blazer and midi skirt. Designed with a long sleeved bodice that falls to a pleated midi skirt, it comes complete with a self fabric belt and two pockets.

Kate's Self Portrait dress is definitely an investment piece, but if you want to get the look for less, Anthropologie has a very similar style for a fraction of the price that's just dropped in the sale.

The white midi dress by New York brand Hutch features a trending sleeveless belted blazer and a stunning tulle skirt. The design is perfect for more formal occasions this summer. It costs £110 and is still available in sizes 6-12.

Karen Millen also has a similar piece with an all-in-one structured blazer, pleated midi skirt and matching fabric belt.

Kate styled the white dress with delicate silver jewellery and fresh-faced makeup. In 2021, she wore her hair up, while for the Queen's Jubilee it was styled to one side in loose waves.

Clearly a big fan of the style, the royal also wore an almost identical blazer dress in cream to visit the London headquarters of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists in April 2022.

And it’s not Kate's only popular look from Self Portrait. Recently, the wife of Prince William donned a gorgeous cobalt blue dress by the brand for the pre-coronation reception at Buckingham Palace. The original piece features a plunging keyhole neckline and a high leg-split, but it appears that Kate altered the dress to reflect a more modest look for the royal-studded event the night before the historic ceremony.

Back in 2019, she even chose the London-based label to wear on her royal tour of the Caribbean, stepping out in a stunning mint green midi dress for her first set of engagements in the Bahamas.
