So yeah, there’s been a big furor over Kate Middleton’s sleeved blue Issa London dress. I’m betting the reason for its rapid sell-out has less to do with Middleton’s impeccable style (which she has) and more to do with what a lovely, endlessly flattering piece it is. So we’re answering the call today with a gallery of sleeved, kimono and shirt-style navy dresses that will look great on you and won’t break the bank. Please note that because we limited ourselves to under $200, we did end up with a few, uh, looser interpretations, but I think in spirit it’s the same: deep blue, sleeved and very pretty all around. Special thanks to Intern Jillian for scouring the internet with me.
