We are still in awe of how amazing Kate looked at Prince George’s christening. And of course by how adorable Prince George is—I think he looks like Kate, what about you?

Earlier this week we gave you all the details on Kate’s hatinator and showed you some of our favourite hats. But after fawning over her beautiful headpiece, we fell in love with coat dress that was created for her by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen.

If you’re wondering what a coat dress is, it’s simply a coat that can double as a dress. As moms we love any outfit that is so versatile. Now the key to buying a coat dress is finding one long enough in length to look like a dress.

Duchess Kate often favours a coat dress at important occasions and we can’t blame her, they are so flattering and perfect for moms. The peplum design on Kate’s coat hides any extra baby weight—though Kate has managed to bounce back to her pre-pregnancy shape. And an A-line skirt is perfect for an elegant event like a christening. Plus, a coat is great for breastfeeding moms who need to easily feed their hungry baby.

We think a coat dress is a great pick for moms to wear to special occasions, from a wedding to date nights with your partner. Check out our 4 favourite coat dresses.
