For the second time on this trip, The Duchess of Cambridge, wore dress by maternity label Seraphine. Today, she chose the simple black turtleneck ‘Vanessa’ dress. The frock retails for an affordable $99 but notes that ‘due to extremely high demand, orders placed now will be dispatched during the second week of January.’

‘Made in a luxurious Ponte Roma fabric, the dress drapes beautifully in a graceful A-line cut. 
The turtleneck style and full length sleeves make this the perfect layering piece for sophisticated transitional style.
Featuring a curved empire line that defines your waist – the Seraphine Vanessa dress is a timeless wardrobe staple.’
Completing her ensemble, Kate accessorized with her towering Episode ‘Angel’ pumps, thick tights, held her suede Mulberry ‘Bayswater’ clutch, her green amethyst and diamond cushion drop earrings by Kiki McDonough, and her Cartier Trinity necklace.

Kate’s shiny tresses were pulled back into a sleek ponytail wrapped with a small piece of hair that is discreetly pinned in place, a trick that adds polish.
