Stylistic secrets of one of the most discussed princesses of the world and 10 best looks except for the wedding one.
On August 4 the Duchess of Sussex celebrated her birthday, only two days after the Vogue issue where she acted as the magazine’s first ever guest editor was announced.
There is practically no doubt on the existence of the “Meghan effect” knowing that every outfit the duchess dons is sold out in less than 24 hours after her appearance. However, the duchess herself wants to be more than just an influencer, she wants to create fashionable looks. It has recently become known that she is developing a capsule collection of women’s office clothes alongside Misha Nonoo. The collection is not likely to stay on the shelves for a long time. While royal experts advise her on what to wear in accordance with the etiquette, fashion observers are mesmerized by her ability to come up with new looks.
Every Royal Family member does charity but Meghan Markle makes headlines every time she steps out. For the first official photoshoot where she posed with her husband and son the duchess wore a double-breasted crème dress highlighted by buttons by Grace Wales Bonner, British designer of African origin.
Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II believes that aristocracy is only allowed to wear black on mourning days but Meghan has broken this unspoken rule several times, and not just because of her inborn stubbornness. This is her way to redraw the attention from herself towards the event or the people she meets and create a conservative business look. Also this works for avoiding clashes with Kate Middleton who prefers lighter pastel shades.
3. Hollywood heritage
Meghan’s style needed to change after she had moved from the States to the UK as Prince Harry’s official partner. Her outfits became more conservative and much closer to England rather than Hollywood. Still, her appearances are unmistakable. The duchess wears shorter dresses with open shoulders, and stays true to high heels.
4. Practical daily looks
The duchess’s practical and comfortable looks are not just pleasant to look at, they ask to be copied. Meghan Markle always looks perfect through paparazzi’s viewfinders even when she is wearing skinny jeans, long sleeve shirts, and jackets. This way she underlines her proximity to general public.
5. Total looks
Meghan Markle’s win-win rule is to wear lighter or darker total looks to bring out her tan skin complexion. When it comes to brighter colours, she prefers to mix them not to clash with Her Majesty’s iconic style.
