In case you’ve been living under a rock it’s been announced that actress Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are engaged. And while a royal wedding is indeed exciting, there’s also something else to look forward to: the outfit inspo. The princess-to-be has already managed to crash websites around the world with people clamouring to buy her engagement outfit. The white belted coat by Line the Label that she wore to the official photo call at Kensington Palace and bottle green dress by Italian label Parosh worn during her TV interview with Prince Harry, have not surprisingly, both sold out. And while we’ll no doubt see Meghan’s style evolve as she embraces her new life as a royal, there are some elements of her style that you can definitely steal for yourself right now…
A classic striped tee is a fave of Meghan’s and no wonder; it’s a print that works easily with everything from jeans to culottes, skirts and slacks, and adds a stylish touch to virtually any look.
Leather jackets are a wardrobe staple as they are so versatile. Nab one in a biker style a la Meghan and you’re guaranteed to wear it to death. Pop one on over everything from a dress to a tee and jeans and you’ll instantly add an edgy touch to your ensemble.
Off the shoulder dresses
It’s the silhouette of summer and as Meghan demonstrates it works easily for a casual day out or a glamorous dress for an evening event.
Meghan seems to favour a monochrome colour palette with black and white pieces featuring frequently in her wardrobe. And no wonder—it’s a classic combination that is always guaranteed to look polished.
Pointed flats and heels
The tan Sarah Flint bow flats she wore on her first public appearance with Prince Harry struck just the right balance between comfort and style. While the beige Aquazurra pumps she wore to the official engagement photo call were on trend while still remaining elegant. It’s a classic shoe style befitting a princess and I’m predicting will remain a constant in her wardrobe.
Whether it’s a striped shirt dress or an oversized button down shirt like the above, Meghan favours tailored pieces that are just a little undone. It makes for effortless style that always looks chic.
