Sophie, the Countess of Wessex, is fast becoming one of our style icons. 

The 56-year-old royal has impressed with her regal looks for recent royal engagements, including the virtual events she took part in during lockdown. 

And she shows no signs of slowing down either, as she continues to provide us with elegant fashion inspiration.

Her most recent look during a visit to Scotland is a trend we're fully in support of - polka dots. 

As part of this year's Royal Week, Sophie headed north with her husband Edward, the Earl of Wessex. 

The couple first made their way to the new retail and leisure centre in Edinburgh's St James Quarter.

The pair then enjoyed a strolls along the Royal Mile, and made their way to the Clam Shell eatery, where they spoke with staff about the impact the pandemic has had on their business, as well as members of the public. 

However, this latter visit came after a swift outfit change from Sophie. 

She started the day in a pink ensemble, with a patterned pleated midi skirt, v-neck blouse and blazer, before opting for a more boldly printed ensemble in the form of a forest green polka-dot midi dress.

Sophie's dress is the Eva Dress from Alice and Early, which retails for £280. 

This design is made from 100% cotton and has a round neck, as well as on-trend puff sleeves, which fall to the elbow. 

It features pintuck detailing over the chest, before flowing out into an A-line skirt, with a tiered hem. 

This number can be worn casually with trainers, or, as Sophie did, with heeled sandals for a more formal occasion. 

For those who don't want to spend a pretty penny on Sophie's exact dress, have no fear, as we've found some less pricey, perfect polka dot alternatives to see you through summer.
