Dressing like Meghan Markle

When she was the star of the hit show Suits, Meghan Markle’s beauty and style were often the topics of conversation in many articles. After Markle became the fiancée and then bride of one of royalty’s most eligible bachelors, the public fascination with her evolving style became even more impassioned.

 

Elegant and put together with a bit more flirty flare than Kate Middleton, Meghan’s style was as approachable as it was enviable. As she transitioned from Hollywood starlet to the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan’s style changed as well. While she was always stylish and beautiful, Meghan’s style became more muted and elegant when she started to be publicly seen with Prince Harry. Her jewelry became more understated and simple (though much more costly), her cleavage-baring dresses were stashed away for good, as were the bodycon dresses she wore to show off her stunning figure.

 

In their place, Meghan began to wear timeless dresses in solid tones—with navy being a particular favorite for 2018. Knee-length, boat neck, and crew neck dresses are some of Meghan’s favorites, which is why it’s no surprise that she chose an open boat neckline for her first wedding dress.

 

Described as “timeless, minimal elegance,” Meghan’s debut dress was a silk, quarter-length sleeve, A-line wedding dress without any lace or visible embellishments. This dress launched a thousand copies around the world as brides scrambled to replicate that elegant, simple beauty. Meghan’s dress was all about paying homage to the woman wearing it and not using Meghan as a mannequin for the dress. It elevated her natural beauty instead of distracting from it.

1. The Timeless Black Dress with a Twist

The little black dress goes everywhere and matches any occasion you can think of. You can style it down for a night of bar hopping with friends by wearing a simple denim jacket and some boots. On the contrary, if you want to style it up and give it a fancy, glamorous flair, pair it with a fancy jacket or scarf, a statement pendant necklace and some stylish sunglasses.

For a city-break-style boho, laidback look, throw a wavy soft poncho over it. For a more composed, demure, and killer look, get yourself a fitted jacket in a contrasting color and do not forget your heels or platforms. Some cities are a mix of classic and new, old grace and modern vibrations (like Florence, Budapest or London). For such cities, the little black dress with twists and touch-ups is the perfect outfit that mixes style with comfort.

A black dress in a medium length is your perfect travel companion whether you want to go to a show or spend your evening at an art gallery opening. Keep in mind that accessories are your best allies.

2. The Cute Retro Look with Pearls

Some cities and some occasions almost beg you to go for a retro-chic look with a glamorous flair and funky side to it. We are thinking about Paris, Rome, or Madrid even. You will not look out of place sporting the timeless polka dot dress in a vibrant color combination (red and white, yellow and black, blue and black, and so on). Retro fashion is trendier than ever these days so you can ride that wave by mixing some classics.

When it comes to stylish retro, you can go only one way: the path of pearls. Pearls received a fresh take and some interesting tunings as of late, becoming the go-to gems for all women with a deep sense of style.
