For Prince George's special day, Kate Middleton wore a beautiful ivory coat-dress with asymmetrical ruffle detailing, paired with a chic pillbox hat.
The dress, designed by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen, was created by the very same designer who dreamt up the Duchess of Cambridge’s iconic wedding gown, while her cream headgear was made by her favourite milliner, Jane Taylor.
Not to be outdone, Kate's sister Pippa, too, chose an ivory ensemble for the day's festivities, wrapping herself in a beautiful off-white wool coat with matching beaded corsage hat by Edwina Ibbotson.
Then, of course, there's little Prince George, who wore the most intricate ivory outfit of all — a lace and satin replica of the traditional hand-me-down royal christening gown that dates back to 1841.
The stylish royal family may be on to something. Ivory — a classic, antique shade of off-white — is an ideal hue to adopt this autumn. It’s less harsh than it's snowy white cousin, yet matches quite practically with nearly every shade, from navy blues (think: Prince William in his dapper suit) to pale pink, like Pippa’s blush-coloured dress.
