The Duchess of Cambridge today visited Family Action’s Lewisham base to see the new national support line at the charity. Kate showed us how to do a head-to-toe matching dark green ensemble and was immaculately dressed in a new elegant olive green dress.
The Duchess wore Beulah London ‘Yahvi Dress’ retailing for £550. This elegant dress features a rounded neckline with pin-tuck details on either side. The dress has long sleeves ending in exaggerated bell cuffs, with a fitted bodice, a feminine floaty midi-length skirt; the skirt has fabric coat buttons down the left hand side moving down into a slit in the skirt.
Catherine modified the dress by adding peaked ruched shoulders to the long sleeves, removing the bell cuff and adding more buttons down the side to make the slit shorter. The wool crepe dress is also available in blush pink, navy blue and floral satin. This is a gorgeous dress and is a very ‘Kate’ silhouette with the pin-tucks at the neck, ruched shoulders, shorter fitted bodice and slightly flared midi skirt; these are all construction details favoured by Kate over the past year in her dresses.
The Duchess cinched the waist of the dress with a dark green croc effect belt with gold hardware buckle. We have seen this belt on her only a few times, but it’s ID still remains a mystery. We feel the belt probably wasn’t really needed for this gorgeous dress.
Below we show the belt on Kate’s Hobbs coat when she visited Kelowna in Canada in 2016 and for St. Patricks Day 2016. If you like the piece, try this belt as a replicate here.
Catherine wore her Gianvito Rossi ’85 Dark Olive Green Pumps’ retailing for £510. The suede pointed toe pumps in a dark olive shade have a lower heel height of only 85mm, a height that is favoured by The Countess of Wessex. You can purchase the 85 heels here. You can get a nice replikate here.
Kate carried her LK Bennett ‘Dora’ clutch, retailing for £175. Unfortunately this clutch is sold out in the colour that the Duchess carries, though the clutch is still available in numerous other colours. The suede envelope style clutch fastens with a metal press stud and has an optional detachable shoulder strap. The inside has a large interior pocket and zip pocket with gold hardware zip pull. This is the third time we have seen Kate carry this clutch. Try this to get the look, here.
The Duchess of Cambridge wore Kiki McDonough green amethyst “Classic” cushion cut earrings, retailing for £1,166.67. The diamond pave 18kt yellow gold hoops showcase sparkling green amethyst cushion cut drops. The green in these stones, however, always looks quite pale when Kate wears them.
We loved this polished and elegant look on Kate today, dark emerald and olive green shades really suit the Duchess. We will see this dress again in a few weeks time for the St Patricks Day presentation of Shamrocks to the Irish Guards, and their mascot Domhnall the Irish Wolfhound?
