The DOC was all about Orla Kiely again yesterday when she visited a Crime Prevention charity in North London with her husband. We already knew she was a fan- she’d worn the same, stretchy Dove print coatdress before (and that her mum Carole is also a fan, having donned a Dancing Girls tea dress to meet her brand new grandson last summer) but the repeat wear is bound to have Kiely’s phone ringing off the hook today.
If we were Kensington Palace, we’d be calling in OK’s Boucle Panel Dress (€440), her Quilted floral shift (£328) in navy or black and the Vermillion Heavy Wool Sleeved Dress (£338) pronto – Kate would get good wear out of all, for sure. Closer to home, The Orla Kiely fashion range is available at our very own Arnotts.
The opportunities to engage your children as well-dressed props are infinite. Tell us one parent who hasn’t melted over a mini baby pumpkin costume or a pair of tiny Adidas Stan Smiths. We'll wait.
