  • Kate Middleton wore a floral, belted midi dress by Emilia Wickstead to unveil a new version of her Chelsea Flower Show garden.
  • The duchess styled out the tricky September weather perfectly with sleeves and closed-toe wedges.

We can always rely on Kate Middleton for some fashion inspo, and she's giving it to us just when we need it most. While we're all struggling with what to wear while the weather makes its mind up, the duchess simply picked a long-sleeved dress with a belt - a key accessory this season, FYI.

Kate was in Surrey to formally open the 'Back To Nature' garden at RHS Wisley, and looked beautiful in her pale blue frock and ever-reliable wedges.

Proving that florals aren't actually just for spring (sorry, Miranda Priestly), her full-skirted button-up dress comes after she wore a raspberry red and pink 'Carnation dress' by Michael Kors to drop Charlotte off at school last week.

Predictably, the Emilia Wickstead dress from today is sold-out - and way out of budget for most of us, at £1,635 - but if you're super keen to get the look yourself, there are a few similar belted and floral styles on the high street right now.

This autumn, we'll be belting everything from dresses to trousers and jackets, so major props to Kate for getting in on the trend early.
