Like a Duchess: Copy Meghan Markle’s 4 Best Looks
Former actress Meghan Markle’s style is wowing fans now that she’s Duchess of Sussex. For most of us, dressing like a duchess is impractical, but what if we could translate the look into every day style?
Patronage to Popular
When Meghan Markle visited the Association of Commonwealth Universities, which she is patron to, she wore a black pleated silk dress with a tailored black coat, both by Givenchy. While the skirt pleat was playful and the coat had subtle shoulder details to add interest, Meghan’s nude shoe and top knot added seriousness to the outfit.
To add this look to your outfit rotation, consider keeping the pleats but choosing a shorter skirt length, adding booties and a cute Moto jacket with quilted shoulder detail, and you have a royal look without the sovereign solemnity.
Casual to Camel Cutie
Before Meghan was a duchess, she was an actress living in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. She had a cute, casual style of jeans and cute sweatshirts. She mixed in vintage hats to step up the look. More recently, Meghan has been seen wearing leggings and a hooded sweater paired with a ball cap to travel in comfort. She dressed up the casual ensemble with a camel coat and sleek black carry-on bag.
Even without the baby bump, you can copy Meghan’s casual style easily by adding black leggings and a camel coat into your wardrobe. That way, you can step up a leggings and hoodie look just like Meghan did while staying comfy.
Royal Evening Look to Night out
When Meghan and hubby Harry go out for the evening, Meghan goes from Duchess to dynamite. At the British Ambassador’s home in Morocco, Meghan’s gold Dior evening gown with sleeve embellishment was stunning.
Rather than replicating Meghan’s floor length royal glamour into your night out on the town, add embroidery and sparkle. A midi-length body skimming dress with small but high-impact details like the sleeve detail on Meghan’s beautiful Dior dress will make you feel just as stunning as the Duchess looked. Add gold heels and a clutch with a sparkly bee brooch attached to it to finish off your outfit.
Maternity to Modern Maxi
Meghan is cradling a baby belly these days and her maternity style is as enviable as her pre-mama wardrobe was. At a recent event, Meghan wore a maxi dress in eye-catching blue to meet the King of Morocco .
The Carolina Herrera dress is a one-of-a-kind but floral dresses will reportedly be hot this summer, so be prepared to be overwhelmed with choices.
