Kate Middleton wore this white Jaeger dress with a navy trim to an event in June 2014.
The blue and white dress worked well for the nautical-themed event, which took place at the National Maritime Museum.
The piece was an instant hit with Kate fans, who bought up the last remaining units of the dress, which was already in the brand’s summer sale.
About the Jaeger Crepe Dress with Navy Trim:
At the time, Jaeger described the dress as a “sleek white dress with navy trims.” They said the dress was “ladylike” and was made from their “best selling crepe fabrication for a flattering fit and a luxurious feel.”
The dress was crafted from 100% polyester. It featured a knee length skirt, short sleeves and a round scoop neckline. The dark navy waistband was flattering on the wearer, helping to give an hourglass appearance and balance out the otherwise simple piece.
Can I still buy the white and navy Jaeger dress?
Sadly, Jaeger stopped reissuing the dress years ago. At the time of writing (September 2023), I can only see one second hand dress available on eBay.

For a Kate-inspired look, try this ivory contrast panel dress from Karen Millen. It’s not exact the same as the Jaeger dress worn by the Princess, but I’m sure you’ll agree it’s a great option if you’re hoping to copy Kate’s style:
Kate Middleton and Jaeger:
Kate Middleton has been spotted wearing Jaeger on a few occasions, although it’s not as frequent as some of her other preferred brands. Jaeger, known for its classic British tailoring and quality fabrics, aligns well with Kate’s penchant for timeless pieces.
Jaeger, a brand with a rich British heritage dating back to 1884, was known for its quality craftsmanship and classic tailoring. However, the brand faced financial difficulties and eventually folded in 2020. The good news for fashion aficionados is that Jaeger has found a new home; it’s now sold exclusively by Marks and Spencer (M&S).
This move has given Jaeger a fresh lease on life, allowing it to reach a broader audience through M&S’s extensive retail network. The collaboration aligns well with M&S’s own commitment to quality and style, making Jaeger a natural fit for the department store’s fashion offerings.
