Brock Collection floral dress

Get the Look: Billabong Juniors printed bodycon dress

In December, the Duchess of Sussex stepped out in a lovely floral dress from the Brock Collection that proved that floral tea dresses are still winter worthy. Everything about the look was sheer perfection, and the fact that we got to see Markle’s baby bump on full display definitely made us smile.

While we may not be able to snag this dress for ourselves (it is sold out in nearly all sizes and costs $1,325), that’s not to say we couldn’t find some lovely floral dresses that we think the duchess would approve of.

The Billabong printed dress we found had a very similar shape and style to the dress worn by the duchess. Although, unlike what Meghan wore for the outing, this dress is all black with a light floral print. The sleeves on this dress are ruffled shoulder straps, which is a departure from the cap sleeves of the original, although the ruffles give it the same feel.

Overall, this look was simple elegance, that proved that less really is more. And we think this is a look that is perfect for everything from date night to a day time wedding or garden party.
