When Kate Middleton walked out in a perfectly pretty cobalt blue dress to the Fostering Excellence Awards in London on Tuesday evening, we practically broke the Internet trying to find it. After all, many sites were reporting the fit-and-flare silk dress from Solani as completely sold out. But guess what. We found it. So, if you hurry, you might just be able to grab your own. But first, let’s take a look at the dress to understand why it’s just. that. great.

We love the flattering full skirt and covered sleeves, so you can still dress up, but don’t have to go totally bare. The nipped-in waist allows for some ample accessorizing. While Kate paired hers with a black belt to highlight her waist, you can have fun with it and add a chain belt if that’s more your style. If you’re looking to add a bit of sparkle, move the attention up high with a statement necklace and chandelier earrings.
There are still sizes left on U.K. sites Anna as well as Salt, for $844 at current exchange rates from the British pound. It’s definitely an investment, but a dress you can get a lot of wear out of this holiday season and beyond.
