We recently featured the 46-year-old in a stunningly elaborate lace Dolce & Gabbana dress that she wore with a satin red clutch and bow-embellished pumps from the same fashion powerhouse.

Solid-colored shift dresses like Kate’s are classic. They successfully strike a balance between conservative and modern, so if you want your dress to be a little bit more modest than your average party dress, this is the best style to wear.
