On her first outing with Prince Harry as an engaged couple, in late November 2017, Meghan wore an extremely memorable white wrap coat, which quickly became part of her fashion legacy. That crisp white coat was the first to create the “Meghan Markle effect”, causing it to sell out of every store within moments of her first wearing it.
As we have seen, the wrap coat is one of Meghan’s signature looks, and she can be seen sporting it in various colors all through the cold winter months.
While visiting Ireland, Meghan exemplified her classic style and preference for sleek shapes and minimal print. She was seen out and about in a mermaid-cut, olive-green skirt and cream cashmere sweater by Victoria Beckham. Over the skirt and sweater, she wore a dusky pink wrap coat, paired with maroon velvet stilettos and a top-handled handbag.
The best part of this look is Markle’s signature messy low bun. She is redefining the style worn by royals, who are known for their prim and proper hairstyles.
The Wedding Dress
No Meghan Markle style recap would be complete without talking about her eagerly anticipated wedding dress. Many differing opinions were given about the gown, but no one can argue that it is an embodiment of her personal style.
She is a fan of simple, no frills clothes that are effortlessly elegant, which is why this fitted, long sleeve dress with a delicate boat neck collar was exactly the right choice for her special day.
Official Engagement Portraits
Those who follow Meghan Markle’s fashion choices, will also not soon forget what she wore in her official engagement portraits with Prince Harry. She opted for a magnificent ball gown by Ralph & Russo, with a sheer bodice and strategically placed embellishments.
The outfit stirred some controversy because it was considered by many as way too risque to be worn by a member of the royal family. We think Meghan looks fun and flirty in this beautiful dress, but it is definitely one of her more daring fashion choices.
Attending the Commonwealth Day Service
Markle looked both stylish and stunning in mid-March for her first official appearance with the Queen, while attending the Commonwealth Day service at Westminster Abbey. She wore a fitted cream coat over a mid-length navy dress and matching navy heels.
Her ensemble was completed with a navy clutch and a perfectly angled beret on her head. This look perfectly combines the best things about Markle’s style, by being both chic and classic.
