Fresh off a year where hot pink (a la Barbiecore) reigned supreme, spring 2024 is ushering in more muted pastels in colors ranging from yellow to purple—but also bubblegum pink. Enter Sophie, the Duchess of Edinburgh, and her dress of choice for the first Buckingham Palace garden party of the season this week.

In Suzannah London, she stunned in her ‘Paris pink’ crepe dress—from a previous collection, but something you can add to your closet for a cool $3,200. Are there more affordable options? I wondered aloud. Yes! I found quite a few, including this lovely style from Reiss, $400. Here’s how to get Sophie’s look for less.

1. Reiss ‘Erica’ Tie-Neck Dress

The tie waist, the midi length, the shade of pink—this feels near identical to the dress Sophie wore.

Different silhouette, similar vibe. In our book, a shirtdress is totally garden party-friendly (but also perfect for brunch).

Another elegant shirt dress, but with full-length sleeves and in a floor-skimming length.

More fun facts about the garden party: Did you know that approximately 27,000 cups of tea are served and 20,000 slices of cake are consumed during a single gathering? Talk about festive.

Even if you don’t have your own garden party on the calendar, I can attest that bubblegum pink—a la Sophie—is just what your closet needs for a number of spring occasions.
