Because who doesn’t love a lady in red? Duchess Kate absolutely stunned in a scarlet Jenny Packham dress, complete with cap sleeves and subtle sequins, at the Buckingham Palace reception and royal portrait session Thursday, December 8, in London. And fortunately, if you swooned for the style, there’s plenty more where that came from!

The strawberry-hued stunner, which the 34-year-old mom of two debuted at a state dinner with the president of China the year before, boasts an A-line silhouette, delicate shimmer on the bodice and cap sleeves. Each of our editors’ picks below incorporate elements of the original style — and not one will break the bank. (As for the duchess’ pearl and diamond tiara? You’ll have to ask the queen about that.)

Happy shopping, royals!
