Kate Middleton's $1,200 dress is out of my budget, but these dupes are just as good

I've said it before, but it bears repeating: Kate Middleton's dress collection is beyond compare.

Maybe it's because the Duchess of Cambridge has more eyes on her in a minute than I will on my wedding day, but her style team seems to be working overtime as of late.

Take the floral Tory Burch dress she wore in Belize, for example. Tropical perfection. The canary yellow Roksanda dress she had on in Jamaica? The sun itself didn't shine as bright.

Whatever the reasoning behind the sartorial shape-up, the Duchess's most recent Max Mara shirt dress deserves an honourable mention.

In a video posted to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's official Instagram account on Friday, Kate Middleton can be seen wearing a pretty long-sleeved white and blue floral dress from Max Mara.

The feminine midi dress features a button-down opening at the front with a shirt-style collar and lace detailing down the arms and chest. In typical Kate Middleton fashion, the floral dress rings in at a cool $1,195 CAD, rendering it more than a little out of our wardrobe budgets.
