Hilary Duff Just Wore a Dress with the Statement-Making Detail Kate Middleton Has Been Wearing for Years

Hilary Duff has been one of our resident style icons for years. From her skinny jeans and clogs to her cozy airport ensemble, no matter what she wears, we immediately want it. If you feel the same way, get ready for yet another legen…wait for it…dary look you'll want to copy.

The first two episodes of How I Met Your Father — the highly anticipated Hulu spinoff series of How I Met Your Motherpremiered earlier this week. As part of the press circuit, Duff appeared on Good Morning America to promote the show. Though she did her early morning interview from home, the multihyphenate made sure to get dressed up for the occasion.

Duff opted for a black and white gingham print dress from Alessandra Rich with tights and a pair of patent leather Mary Jane platform heels. We love that her dress of choice has so many playful details, like pretty puff-sleeves along with velvet buttons and bows, but it's the lace-trimmed collar that really caught our attention.

The soft, curved corners are shaped to fit and enhance the neckline, exuding preppiness with a touch of femininity. Kate Middleton has been a fan of this simple statement-making detail for years, often channeling her late mother-in-law Princess Diana who famously loved wearing bold collars. Given that it's got the stamp of approval from both a future queen and Hollywood royalty, a Peter Pan collar dress is now a wardrobe must-have in our books.

At $1,400, the HIMYF star's exact gingham dress is a bit expensive. Luckily, there are plenty of ways you can replicate her look for a more affordable price. This plaid shift dress from Amazon is less than $30 and this charming button-down dress from Levi's is on sale at Nordstrom for under $55. Also, peep this nearly perfect dupe that's selling out quickly. If you're digging the gingham print but not the collar, we found a similar puff-sleeve dress that's just as fun as Duff's number.
