If, upon seeing Kate Middleton's Alexander McQueen look for day one of the Royal Ascot, you experience déjà vu, we don't blame you. In 2016, the duchess wore a similar lacy white dress to the same event [1], only it was by Dolce & Gabbana. Nevertheless, it seemed like she could offer anyone a few pointers about what to wear for a horse race in England.

Obviously, Kate prefers to stick with a number that's breezy and functional, hitting right below the knee. But modest details like a high neckline or long sleeves are preferable and help Kate achieve her signature brand of sophistication. Kate's neutral accessories included a textured envelope clutch, a new netted fascinator [2], and delicate drop earrings loaned to her by the queen [3]. Scroll through for an all-angles view of Kate's trusty summertime ensemble, then shop a variation of Kate's Alexander McQueen look, along with alternative options.
