Princess Kate's £36 Mango Dress Is the Perfect Winter Staple

Catherine, the Princess of Wales has once again found a high-street gem. In recent years, she has become known for wearing expensive-looking pieces from the high street, and her appearance yesterday was no exception. Whilst visiting a children's centre in Middlesex on Wednesday, Kate selected a khaki knitted dress from much-loved high-street brand Mango, and it's only £36. Though, I think it looks significantly more expensive than that. 

True to her elegant and put-together style, Kate has a way of spotting premium-looking styles and is always on-trend for the season. Right now, we're at the crossroads between autumn and winter, where cosy styles like knit dresses are taking centre stage. The best part of this knit-midi ensemble is that it can be paired with any type of boots around. Classic ankle boots are a solid option, while knee-high styles add a fashion-forward edge. I personally love how she made it look all the more premium with the addition of a classic leather belt overtop.

As often happens when Kate steps out in an affordable piece, this Mango dress is already flying off the shelves and shows as sold out in most sizes. But don't fret. The brand has a great track record for restocking quick-selling items, and surely, something worn by a princess is on its immediate reorder list. I recommend you opt in for email alerts to get notified when your size becomes available. If you just can't wait to re-create Kate's style (who could blame you?), I've found plenty of casual knitted dresses at Mango that will emulate the overall feel of the look.
