These 5 Dresses Are Sure to Make You Look Royal

Posted by Claire Erickson on

If you're anything like me, you are obsessed with the royal family! To make matters "worse" (lol), my obsession only grew when I lived in England this past spring while studying abroad. What draws me to the royals, however, is not just their lavish lifestyle, but also their fashion. I am speaking specifically to Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle. They always look elegant and powerful, but also extremely feminine all at the same time!

Luckily, we have dresses that make your one stop shop for looking like a royal!

These 5 Dresses Are Sure to Make You Look Royal

 1. Vintage Peplum Dress

Back in 2016, the Duchess of Cambridge took a solo tour out to The Netherlands. During one of her official appearances, she wore a suit exactly like the one above, but designed by Catherine Walker-- a long time designer for Diana, Princess of Wales. 

No matter how you may style this dress, you are definitely going to look like England's next queen! We, however, recommend pairing this ensemble with a nude clutch; nude, pointed-toe heels; and a dainty pair of pearl drop earrings. 

COLORS: Black, Blue


 2. Little Black Lace Dress

If you don't know already, Kate and Meghan love a good lace dress. Meghan Markle wore one similar to this Little Black Lace Dress to a charity event before she met Harry. Kate also wore a similar style during a red carpet appearance.

To look as chic as either Duchess, we recommend paring the dress with a gold sandal, red clutch, and some statement earrings. 



3. Meetings All Day Dress

Throughout her eight years as Queen in waiting, it seems as though one of the colors that Kate has worn most often is green! What is great about this dress is the similarity in the Duchess' style, as well as the ruffled pleating-- a fun, playful design that is office appropriate. 

Whatever color you may choose in this dress, we, here at the shop, recommend adding your favorite jewelry pieces to polish off the look. 

COLORS: Purple, Black, Green


4. Shoulder Hug Dress

While attending one of her first official events as a Duchess with the Queen, Meghan Markle wore a cream-colored, off the shoulder dress. Not only did this attire break royal protocol, but it also set the stage for Meghan's style for her appearances to come.  

Add a belt to this dress to accentuate the waist, or if you are like the royal family, be sure to add a hat for the next time you attend the derby! 

COLORS: Purple, Black, Green, Pink


5. See Me Through Maternity Dress

Some of the biggest news stories about the royal family are in regard to when a Duchess is pregnant with a new heir. It is hard to argue against the fact that both Kate and the Duchess of Sussex have had incredible maternity style.

You are sure to look like either heiress with this maternity dress in one of their favorite patterns-- polka-dot!

COLORS: Black, Blue, Pink, Red
