The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited the Evelina London Children’s Hospital in London and homelessness charity the Passage. The Duchess continued her run of festive and cheery looks with a dark green polka dot dress by one her original favourite labels.
The Duchess wore L.K.Bennett ‘Montana Polka Dot Silk Dress,’ retailing for £325. This 1940’s vintage style shirt dress oozes feminine glamour with its small attention to details that truly create an elegant look. The dark green and white polka dot dress features a rounded neckline with neck tie bow, beautiful pearl buttons down the centre of the bodice and long sleeves are finished with extended cuffs and a singular pearl button. The fitted waist moves into a soft and floaty a-line midi length skirt that dances slightly with soft draped folds, through the front and back. The dress is crafted from silk with a polyester lining.
This dress is quite similar in style and silhouette to the Duchess’ Kate Spade diamond shirt dress seen at the Foundling Museum.

Catherine carried her LK Bennett ‘Doria’ clutch that we saw debut just last week in Cyprus. Originally retailing for £175, but now at a discounted price of £119. The clutch is designed with a slight twist on the classic envelope clutch and is crafted from soft khaki suede. The bag opens to a singular internal compartment with a zip pocket and a detachable shoulder strap. You can purchase Kate’s clutch here.
The Duchess wore a pair of khaki suede pumps. Many Royal Fashion watchers believe that these pumps are Gianvito Rossi in 85mm heel height and are actually a different and lower pair of heels than the khaki suede pumps we saw in Cyprus last week. You can purchase these dark olive heels for £480 here.
Kate wore her Annouska 18CT yellow gold baroque peal drops, retailing for £325. These pearls hang delicately from Kiki McDonough diamond hoop earrings. A very interesting way to keep your earring wardrobe refreshed by being able to manipulate the way you style your earrings. Simply changing the hoops or the drops to become a completely different style. The Royals are of course very accustomed to being able to modify their jewellery pieces with numerous items available in the Queen’s vault able to morph into different pieces depending on the wearers preference, from tiaras to necklaces and earrings to brooches.
We think this dress looks beautiful on Kate, she always looks so elegant in vintage style frocks. You can get Kate’s festive style here:
