K-Middy’s Engagement Dress Is Back And Buyable (For Under £100)

K-Middy’s Engagement Dress Is Back And Buyable (For Under £100)

And SHOCK, it's still in stock...

Who doesn’t remember Kate Middleton’s engagement dress? Issa, navy, wrap — the one we’ve seen about a billion times that people still insist on talking about? Yes, that one.

Well, good news for fans of K-Middy’s princess style (which is a lot of people) the Issa dress is back on the market.

When Prince William and Kate Middleton got engaged back in 2010, and the pictures of them in pre-marital bliss in front of a fireplace were printed around the world, the $535 sexily-named Phylis Wrap Dress sold out.

Now, former Issa creative director Daniella Helayel is launching a capsule collection with Monsoon — one of which is pretty much the Phylis.

The Gisele dress is only £99 and, if Kate’s history of wearing high street is anything to go by, we predict a sell-out.

Described by Monsoon as: ‘A timelessly chic addition to your style repertoire, the Gisele belted dress is crafted with a flattering v-shaped neckline and cross-over ties that accentuate the narrowest part of your silhouette. Full-length sleeves create an elegant finish.’

It’s very Middleton-circa-2012-friendly, with lot of printed cinched-in midi and maxi styles — one particularly similar to the Whistles one she wore to the Olympics closing ceremony.

Kate’s wardrobe switch up has been well (read: overly) documented in the past year — from that Alexander McQueen printed dress at Wimbleton to that slinky back Jenny Packham, she appears to be branching away from the wrap dress aesthetic.

It’s being well received, if the recent survey crowning her best-dressed celebrity is anything to go by. The Duchess Of Cambridge has been crowned (again) best-dressed woman, beating Alexa Chung and her fashiony crowd, the Kardashian-Jenner Instagram crew and classics Kate Moss and Sienna Miller.

Well, can any of them sell out a navy wrap dress? Didn’t think so.
