Kate Middleton Strikes Again in an Attainable Burgundy Wrap Dress

When it comes to her official engagements, Kate Middleton has honed a signature working wardrobe. Whether it’s her tried and tested uniform of Alexander McQueen suits or Catherine Walker coatdresses, the royal often leans on the same outfit formulas. Another one of her crucial wardrobe staples? The classic wrap dress, of course.

The Prince and Princess of Wales took the train to Birmingham today to celebrate the city’s culture, visiting the family-run restaurant Indian Streatery, as well as meeting former students from University College Birmingham and local business owners from the city’s creative industries. For the occasion, she wore a burgundy wrap dress by high street brand Karen Millen that features exaggerated lapels, long sleeves, and a pleated midi-length skirt. Her wardrobe is an artful mix of designer and affordable buys, and today she is celebrating the British high street in her $315 dress which is inspired by the silhouette of a classic trench coat. The royal completed the ensemble with a pair of matching burgundy suede court shoes.

This isn’t the first time that Kate Middleton has worn a Karen Millen dress. Last year she visited the Royal Surrey County Hospital’s maternity unit sporting a canary yellow midi-dress by the British brand, which included a notched neckline, puffy sleeves, and a pleated skirt. However, the royal’s repertoire of wrap dresses also extends to a myriad of other brands.

The Princess of Wales is clearly a fan of Karen Millen.
