Meghan Markle’s 5 New Age Wardrobe Essentials & Where You Can Find Them
Essential 1: A Boxy tote
So popular was this Strathberry Midi Tote, that it has been nicknamed the ‘Meghan Bag’. It predictably sold out not long after Meghan stepped out with it at her first royal engagement.
What it is: The Strathberry Midi
Meghan coordinated the tri-colour-blocked bag of burgundy, navy and vanilla with a navy military-style coat, which stood out for its silver bar closure.
Essential 2: Long camel coat
Meghan’s solution to Britain’s frigid temperatures goes hand-in-hand with her penchant for thick coats. This getup contained the warmth to her body, and added length to her slender frame.
What it is: The Smythe Brando coat
She’s also a fan of mono-colour coordination – a good example is this camel ensemble of Smythe Brando coat. When worn as Meghan did, with a Jigsaw scarf of the same colour group, it further piles on the illusion of added height.
Essential 3: Frayed jeans
Pre-engagement, Meghan proved to be a fervent smart-casual dresser, opting for button-down shirts and jeans, as seen at the Invictus Games in September 2017.
What it is: Hand-distressed jeans by Mother
Meghan chose a pair of distressed jeans by Mother, paired her outfit with chic, pointy ballet flats, dressing sensibly for a day on her feet. Now this look, we can pull off.
Essential 4: Sheer (engagement worthy) dress
Where Princess Diana and Kate Middleton stuck to conservative dresses at their engagement photocall, Meghan broke ranks with her choice of a sheer Ralph & Russo couture gown.
What it is: Ralph & Russo couture
The floor-length dress was embellished with a gold leaf embroidery on top, and a tulle, full skirt. It was a romantic choice and an emboldening depiction of Meghan’s independence from royal formalities.
Essential 5: Strappy pumps
Meghan’s love for elegance – and a prudent one, at that – goes unnoticed with the pair of heels she stepped out in to announce her engagement to Prince Harry.
What it is: Aquazzura pointed toe lace-ups
The lace-up Matilde pumps by Aquazzura is loved by Meghan for its pointed toe, slinky strap versatility, which you can get in a similar Jimmy Choo version. So fond she is of the heels she’s recycled twice, that she even owns a pair in black too.
