As the RH Chelsea Flower Show enters full-swing, The Duchess of Cambridge (AKA Kate Middleton) has stepped out wearing her second floral dress in almost as many days. For her latest public appearance, the Duchess arrived at the show wearing a floral maxi dress by designer Erdem – also previously worn by Princess Eugenie and The Duchess of Kent – during a visit with Queen Elizabeth II and Prince William.
While Kate, Will and the Queen were focused on the flowers and plants on display, our eyes were very much drawn to Kate’s black floral gown. It’s equal parts summery, heavenly and also kind of moody – I’m very into it.
The high-end designer dress features an empire-waist silhouette and mid-length sleeves that just pass the Duchess’ elbows. As for the print, the design features cornflower blue, yellow and charcoal florals, set against a white background. The dress is then finished by matching white lace panel work around the collar, cuffs, waist, bust and skirt.
As for accessories, Kate opted for a pair of tan suede wedges, a minimalist watch and, fittingly, a pair of matching floral stud earrings.
