When the Prince and Princess of Wales dropped off their brood – Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis – at their new school back in September, it was Kate Middleton’s effortlessly chic ensemble that caught our attention.

For the occasion, she opted for a dress from one of her favourite fashion brands: Rixo.

In a similar style to the pink dress she was spotted in during a royal visit to the Bahamas, Kate’s school-drop-off ensemble has a more autumnal feel with its brown polka-dot print. Colour aside, it’s clear she’s a fan of the Rixo Izzy dress silhouette.

Kate kept her accessories to a minimum, styling with her signature pearl drop earrings and a pair of brown suede pumps. As for her hair, she debuted a slightly different style for the new cold-weather season – cheek-sweeping bangs and some more layers.

If you’re coveting Kate’s polka-dot dress, the good news is it’s back in stock – but you’ll have to be quick, as the Izzy dress has repeatedly flown off hangers. Here’s everything you need to know, including how to rent the piece.

The Izzy dress from Rixo seems to be one of the princess’s firm favourites, as she wore the bubble-gum pink colourway for royal duties in the Bahamas. With a relaxed silhouette and A-line hem, it features a fitted hip panel to give the dress slightly more structure, while the collar makes it slightly smarter. Blouson sleeves add further detailing, while the copper polka-dot print lends it to autumn and winter dressing.
