If all this good weather has got you wondering what on earth to wear for wedding season, Kate Middleton might have the answer. Nearing the end of their week-long royal tour in the Caribbean, Middleton was seen arriving at one of its final stops - Nassau's Sybil Strachan Primary School in The Bahamas - in a dress so suitable for your next nuptials that it might as well have your name on it.

The minty green and capped-sleeve number - which cinched just above the waist and hit that sweet spot on the mid-calf (Middleton's favourite dress length) - was from Self-Portrait. At £350, it's at the expensive end of the scale, but, as you can see from the Duchess, requires minimal accessories to make shine. As well as rewearing a pair of pointed white pumps from previous tour outfits - a classic from Jimmy Choo - Middleton added a pair of earrings from Nadia Irena, a jewellery designer from The Bahamas.
