Kate Middleton just made a case for going the casual route at your own wedding — and she wasn't even trying. The duchess stepped out for day two of the Royal Ascot, looking light and cheery as ever in her Dolce & Gabbana design, which she wore to the queen's birthday concert just one month ago. While she originally covered it up with a red Zara coat, this number clearly deserves the spotlight.

It gets a modest touch from the long-sleeved silhouette, but the design's sheer details and breezy skirt, which cuts off midshin, makes it trendy and a touch sexy. Of course Kate played to the elegant side, finishing her outfit with a Jane Taylor hat, neutral pumps, L.K. Bennett box clutch, pearl drop earrings, and her sapphire engagement ring. Read on for an all-angles view, then shop the look for Summer, or simply to ditch the floor-sweeping gown at your own nuptials.
