Blue fitted dress

Kate Middleton first wore the Stella McCartney Ridley dress back in 2012 for a visit to the National Portrait Gallery.  Since, she’s worn it four more times in public.  You may remember her pairing the dress with her Smythe blazer and Corkswoon wedges at the Commonwealth Games in 2014 (pictured below) –

And recently, she paired the dress with the same navy blue blazer and a pair of L.K. Bennett nude court shoes at the Royal International Air Tattoo
