The first day back-to-school after summer always comes with a desire to dress up and look sharp.

Even if by day two, your dropping-the-kids-off look at the school gates has descended quickly into a coat chucked over a pair of PJs, there’s something fun about making an effort to mark the end of the holidays.

Want some inspiration? Look to the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton.

Taking George, nine, Charlotte, seven, and Louis, four, to meet staff and pupils at Lambrook School this week, Kate delivered a chic autumnal look with a £245 polka dot dress from Rixo.

The exact item, FYI, is the Izzy pleated shirt dress from the celeb-loved brand, which is also available in black and white polka dots and a pink zebra print.

The Duchess completed the look with coordinating brown suede heels (for non-Royals, we’d suggest ditching stilettos and instead going for a smart loafer for a more practical school drop-off ensemble) and simple drop earrings.

Dotty dresses have been a real theme for Kate this year. She wore a navy and white one by Alessandra Rich for Wimbledon, and a black and white version for day four of Royal Ascot.
