Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge has a bunch of events coming up on her social calendar—a baby on the way isn’t stopping her!—so, we’re doing some style prep for the Princess by picking out a look we’d like to see her wear for her next photo op. On deck: a night out on the town with Prince William. Here’s what we’d love to see her in when she takes a night off from her royal duties.

INSPIRATION
The gray embellished Matthew Williamson dress she wore to the London premiere of African Cats in 2012.

PICKS
Topshop’s ($390 at topshop.com) light gray beaded shift dress is an updated alternative for Kate as her bump continues to grow. The pearl embellishment along the sleeves and collar adds elegance, while the baby doll silhouette offers comfort, without sacrificing style. To finish off the look, pair the dress with black patent leather round toe pumps by Stuart Weitzman ($325 at stuartweitzman.com) and a coordinating rectangular clutch by Diane von Furstenberg ($395 at bloomingdales.com).
