Pearls and lace: A demure cream lace dress accessorised with a long rope of cream pearls and contrasting apple green cardigan was the perfect outfit for a royal occasion yesterday. Dame Helen Mirren exuded calm and sophistication as she presented Princes William and Harry with the losing team award at a charity polo match at Ascot. It’s easy to emulate Dame Helen’s style with a High Street lace dress (think Next or House of Fraser) with the long rope of cream freshwater pearls from Tesoros. At only £45.95, this beautiful yet versatile accessory can be worn long, doubled or knotted to create several different looks for your outfits. The occasion was caught on camera by the Daily Mail.
