Kate Middleton’s lace dress was classic and chic as she stepped out for a memorial service in France — and we would expect nothing less from the effortlessly stylish Duchess!
Kate Middleton, 34, looked appropriate and chic as she stepped out in a lovely lace frock for a somber visit at a service to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the start of the battle of the Somme on July 1, where she donned a lace 3/4-sleeve dress which featured a Pretty Peter pan collar and a black fascinator as she arrived at the Commonwealth War Graves Commission Memorial in France. The frock, in a beautiful cream hue, fit her svelte frame like a glove and extended past the knee, while peplum detailing at the waist actually made it look like she was wearing chic separates in some photos!
Kate’s bespoke frock featured a black underlay which gave the frock a more formal vibe — and the addition of her elaborate Lock & Co hat certainly kept the theme alive as she wore her hair back, allowing the beautiful detailing of the dress, (like the collar!), to really shine. Her go-to pair of black court pumps and a black clutch polished off the ensemble. I especially love the way her black accessories tied the look together, as the hue was visible thanks to the underlay of the dress — and you can never go wrong with color-coordinated neutrals!

While lace is a feminine wardrobe staple for Kate, the look is also quite trendy, with lace making a major return on the runway for Spring 2016, along with lingerie-inspired looks — and we love the way the Duchess kept it classic and chic while still acknowledging the trends with her latest ensemble.
The day before she stepped out in the lovely lace frock, Kate debuted a printed Missoni coat in black and grey shades — we’re loving her Parisian wardrobe choices! What did you think of Kate’s lacy look in France? Did you love her chic attire for the memorial service?
