The Duchess of Cambridge made a subtle change-up in her style just in time for summer—here's how to get the look

As far as modern style icons go, Kate Middleton is the gold standard, and her latest outfit definitely did not disappoint. For her visit to the Victoria & Albert Museum in London yesterday, the Duchess of Cambridge kept to her signature wardrobe option—the elegant day dress—but with a subtle update.

She opted for a ’40s-inspired, knee-length, long-sleeved dress by designer Alessandra Rich—much beloved by the London social set, according to Tatler UK—in a graphic red houndstooth pattern. It boasted a flattering V-neck, offset by a Peter Pan collar and buttons down the front, as well as a rounded shoulder detail (a pretty power woman move we noticed), a dropped waist that elongated her silhouette and a chic cuff that drew attention to her wrists. 

Accessories-wise, the Duchess kept thing simple: a black clutch, black heels by Jennifer Chamandi, a black surgical face mask (still an essential), gold hoop earrings.
