Kate Middleton Relies on These Dresses, and so Do I


We’ve long been fans of Self-Portrait dresses here at Who What Wear UK. Not only are they beautifully crafted, game-changing wardrobe pieces that take all the stress out of wedding-guest dressing, but they also come with a semi-affordable price tag. This means we can shop those feel-good frocks with a smidgen less guilt than if we’d have we were constantly investing in bank-breaking designer frocks. What’s the best part? You can pull Self-Portrait’s beautiful, classic dresses out year after year, and they never feel dated, so they make for great investments.

This Self-Portrait dress may have been a bold choice for Kate Middleton, but honestly, we love it on her.

As it turns out, we’re not the only ones looking to the London-based label when we need incredible occasionwear. The brand has a number-one royal fan in the Duchess of Cambridge. Middleton has worn the brand a number of times and even chose to wear Self-Portrait for the biggest royal occasion of 2022: the Platinum Jubilee celebrations earlier this summer. Honestly, we’re usually big fans of Middleton’s wardrobe, but our favourite outfits are always fashion-forward labels that break the coat-dress mould.

The Duchess is a fan of the brand’s chic fit-and-flare blazer dresses. 

Everything from the chic belted blazer dresses that flatter in all the right places to the floaty green number Middleton wore on the recent Caribbean tour proves why she and so many fashion people choose Self-Portrait for occasions when they want to feel stylish and polished. And since we’re currently in the throes of a summer packed with events like weddings, parties, Wimbledon and the races, we thought it was a good time to round up the very best Self-Portrait dresses from its latest collections.

Keep scrolling for 25 of our favourite styles, from go-to designs that have been a part of the Self-Portrait family for many years (we told you they were classic) to brand-new shapes we’ve fallen for this year.

Middleton chose to wear the brand for possibly the biggest royal appearance of the year: the Platinum Jubilee celebrations.

Self-Portrait dresses come Holly Willoughby–approved as well.
