Blue is Kate Middleton’s choice of color for the summer. After stunning in an Alexander McQueen ensemble (opens in new tab) for Trooping the Colour (opens in new tab) on Saturday, Kate changed into a more low-key ensemble for Prince William’s polo match on Sunday. For the Maserati Royal Charity Polo Trophy, the Duchess of Cambridge wore a striped blue dress with a pair of Russell & Bromley ankle-strap espadrille wedges.

Kate's casual dress came from one of her favorite affordable retailers (opens in new tab): Zara. The sleeveless style featured an off-the-shoulder fit, a ruched front, and a built-in wrap belt—cute, tiny details that didn't go unnoticed. Of course, if you want the dress, the piece is currently sold out (opens in new tab) on the website (call it the Kate effect (opens in new tab)), but as with some of the brand's items, there's always the chance it'll be back in stock. (I suggest you bookmark the page, STAT.)

The Duchess of Cambridge could not have chosen a more appropriate look for the day's activities as she sat on the grass and played with her children (opens in new tab). At one point, Kate even made a run for it in her wedge sandals—proving they're the comfiest shoe (opens in new tab) one can wear for summer. She topped her look with a white Victoria Beckham tote bag.
