Score Kate and Pippa Middleton’s Wimbledon’s Looks for Less
Give your style a royal upgrade with these adorable (and affordable) finds.
The Middleton sisters have always been style icons, from Kate’s affordable sneakers to Pippa’s gorgeous wedding makeup—even Pippa’s wedding guest outfit was absolutely perfect. So, it comes as no surprise that the sister’s Wimbledon outfits are giving us some serious closet envy. But with Pippa’s dress clocking in at $615, it may seem impossible to get her look without spending some big bucks.
Luckily, we found two dresses that prove looking like royalty doesn’t mean you have to drain your bank account. These editor-approved choices are much more affordable, and they’ve got everything we love about Kate and Pippa’s dresses. Check out the more affordable versions of the Middleton sister's tennis tournament ensembles below.

Kate wowed in a retro yet elegant polka-dot dress that stole the show as she headed to the first match of the Wimbledon tournament. Because the pattern is so busy, Kate kept it simple with black block heels, a white satchel, and a pair of pearl earrings. The understated accessories allowed the dress to really shine and show off her more playful side.
To get the look, we suggest this more affordable number that ties at the waist. We love fit-and-flare cuts because they flatter your figure, but aren't too revealing. The long sleeves and the collar make it perfect for formal occasions, while the adorable polka-dot print keeps it feeling fresh and fun. Add a pair of Steve Madden black block heels, a white Kate Spade handbag, and some elegant pearl earrings.

For Pippa’s Look:

Pippa’s gown struck the perfect balance between stylish and modest. The fashion icon rocked a tea-length blush-colored lace ensemble complete with a collar. While the fabric exposed some skin on her arms and legs, the longer hemline and neck detail made it perfectly appropriate for the tennis courts. She kept the color palette flawlessly muted and opted for nude-colored pumps and a nuetral clutch to complement her girly dress. For the final touch, she added trendy oversized sunglasses that make her look cool and polished.
Score this ultra-feminine getup by opting for this much more affordable (and nearly identical) version of Pippa’s gown. The collar detail is a stand-out feature that instantly dresses up the chic cut of the dress. Just like the original, this dress has bandeau lining that doesn’t go all the way down, which means you’ll stay cool in the hot summer sun. Worn with some J. Crew suede pumps, a Michael Kors clutch, and a pair of Ann Taylor sunglasses, you’ll be able to match Pippa’s full outfit down to a T.

Once you have everything you need, style your hair in loose waves or in a low ponytail, and you’ll be on your way to becoming a Middleton. That really is the dream, isn’t it?
