Loved Princess Kate’s Tory Burch floral midi dress? M&S has an amazing £27 lookalike



Princess Kate has had an endless amount of incredible fashion moments over the years, but her floral blue dress worn during the royal’s Caribbean tour in March 2022 is one that is still adored by royal fans. 

The Princess of Wales wore the Tory Burch midi dress when she visited Belize, which featured a tiered silhouette, a ruched bodice and short puffed sleeves.

It’s no surprise that the Kate Effect caused the dress to sell out almost immediately, but now M&S has its own version that’s so similar – and it’s just £27. 

The Finery London frock features a similar square neckline and puffed sleeves, along with a tailored fit and lovely floral print. The high street dress is a fraction of the price of Kate’s designer piece, and it’s currently reduced in the M&S sale. 

We love the vibrant print on the royal lookalike dress, and the timeless design is one you’ll want to reach for every summer. 

The versatile style is perfect for just about any occasion, and we recommend opting for a pair of white strappy heels for an elevated summer evening ensemble, or channel Princess Kate with a pair of espadrille sandals and a raffia bag for an effortless daywear look.

The M&S sale is seeing the discounted dresses fly off the shelves, so you’ll need to act fast if you want to snap up the blue floral midi.

    Editor’s Note

    Wow, this dress features two of my favourite designs; floral and tie-dye. Simply gorgeous. I think this would make a great wedding guest dress and thanks to all the colours on it you can match accordingly. Personally I’d amp up the orange and wear bright accessories. 

    This Karen Millen plus size dress features a concise tailored bodice and a softly pleated skirt. And what’s more, it’s washable.

    Isn’t the styling dreamy on this dress from & Other Stories. From the earrings to the flat slider shoes, it’s just perfection. I think the puff sleeves elevate this dress to next level territory. 

    You’ll have to act fast if you want this dress. It’s also available in two other colourways but they are both selling out fast.

    Editor’s Note

    I really wanted to feature the maxi version of this dress (it’s seriously stunning) but alas, it was selling out at the speed of light. This pattern is beautiful and timeless. 

    The design in this dress was hand painted by Phase Eight’s in-house design team. The keyhole neckline adds a unique touch to the design and you’re event-ready.

    ASOS Edition Pansy Floral Dress

    Editor’s Note

    I first saw this dress on Samantha Faiers’ Instagram and she most definitely sold it to me. I thought it looked so fancy that it would be a little designer number.  

    ASOS is serving up the goods with this lilac floral dress. The pansy embroidery mixed with beaded mesh equals a summer hit. 

  • River Island floral cami dress

    Editor’s Note

    I love the subtle pop of colour to this dress, and it’s giving me summer date night vibes. I would style it exactly like the model but I’d maybe add an oversized blazer for cool-girl vibes.

    A cowl neckline is having a moment right now, and thanks to the adjustable straps on this dress, you can customise it to fit you in the best way possible. 

  • rixo floral dress

    Rixo Camellia Floral Dress

    Editor’s Note

    I love RIXO, it’s just one of those brands that seems so timeless and I love the story of how two best friends from University created a brand women love to wear. If you’re not familiar with the designs, expect hand-painted prints, premium materials and vintage-inspired silhouettes.

    The Camellia dress is an iconic RIXO style as it’s one of the dresses that started the business. This new blue floral print is inspired by a vintage 1970s sample that Design Director and Co-Founder Orlagh sourced from Paris and reimagined.

  • Mango Floral Dress

    Mango Floral Textured Dress

    Editor’s Note

    A stunning floral creation from Mango for summer. I love the textured fabric and I would really make the orange pop with matching orange accessories.

    If you enjoy wearing floral dresses, this one will be for you. Plus size is also available.

  • Monsoon floral dress

    Monsoon Floral Shirt Dress

    Editor’s Note

    This is for someone who wants to wear a dress that’s bold, bright and beautifully patterned with rose print. Team with a bright pink lipstick. 

    Stand out amongst crowded events in the Jordann dress. Designed in sustainable viscose, a deep purple hue spills through the backdrop alongside a tropical print, whilst pink frill trims define the neckline, cuffs and button placket. Alter the shape with the optional, contrasting belt.
