Pippa arrived in what may be the most fail-proof wedding guest ensemble of all time: a demure, black-white-and-pink floral maxi dress, accented by strong black elongating vertical lines and black detailing that helped highlight Pippa’s waist, all to a flattering effect. She accessorized with a black velvet clutch and minimalist black pumps. The look strikes just the right balance—it's fashion-forward without being so eye-catching it risks upstaging the bride. It translates easily between dress codes from “garden party” to “black tie,” too. Her gorgeous frock, from British designer label Erdem’s spring collection, will set you back a cool £2,720—we did the math, that’s about $3,440. Ready to make the investment? It’s available to buy here. Shopping on a more, erm, realistic budget? Take a look at the similar style below (in a sleeveless cut, more appropriate to American summer weather), which will help you get Pippa’s look, for much less than a king’s—or a royal-adjacent’s—ransom.
