The best Kate Middleton-inspired polka-dot dresses to acquire right now

The best Kate Middleton-inspired polka-dot dresses to acquire right now ...

There's one pattern that makes the duchess go dotty when it comes to dresses.

Kate Middleton has been seen time and time again in polka-dot dresses, from the old favorites in black and navy to bolder pink and green hues.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge wore a white spotted frock for Royal Ascot, chose a black polka-dot dress for Prince Philips memorial service, and wore not one, but two different dotted dresses at Wimbledon.

She passed on her love of polka dots to her daughter Princess Charlotte, who wore a navy top with white stripes for a sweet video message cheering England's women's soccer team this week.

Princess Diana was a huge supporter of the classic pattern as well; in fact, the Middletons' 2022 Royal Ascot appearance was strikingly similar to Diana's spotted outfit during the 1980s.

Weve rounded up a few of the finest polka-dot dresses worthy of any royal, but with slightly lower price tags than Kates favorite four-figure Alessandra Rich creations.
