Kate Middleton Day After Wedding Zara Blue Dress

Get the look: Kate Middleton’s day after wedding dress at Zara

The new princess and Duchess of Cambridge, always looks stunning. Even the day after her royal wedding, Kate stepped out fresh faced and beautiful. Wearing a blue pleated dress from Zara (YES! Zara), priced at only $89, Poor Girl’s everywhere are ecstatic to learn they can afford to dress like a princess!

Though many were surprised to learn that her honeymoon going-away outfit wasn’t a couture creation, it truly shows that Kate wants to be seen as the “People’s Princess” or princess next door as we’d say in the states.

Most importantly, it also shows that you can look sleek, pulled together and even royal, without spending a fortune.
