Kate Middleton Gets Dotty in Dalmatian, and You Can Too

By  June 24, 2013

Cruella de Vil may not have gotten the Dalmatian print ensemble of her dreams, but you sure can–and no puppies need to be harmed in the process! Kate Middleton, trendsetter extraordinaire and soon to be mother to a very special infant, jumpstarted a fashion frenzy after donning the spotty style to a ship naming ceremony earlier this month. The bold coat, by UK retailer Hobbs, immediately sold out after the appearance, but you can mimic the Duchess of Cambridge’s spot on style by picking up some Dalmatian print pieces of your own. Rather than brightening up the black and cream pattern with snazzy shades, pair it with neutrals for a chicer, more sophisticated look. We like the way dalmatian goes with chestnut, especially, after seeing the color scheme Loeffler Randall went with for his beautiful calf hair clutch. Accessorize with gold baubles, and rock this new trendy animal print all year long.
