Meghan, Duchess of Sussex. Meghan Markle. Meg. No matter what you call her, there’s no denying the allure of her style.
Ever since she joined the royal family, she’s been dazzling us with her chic and elegant looks, from minimalist dresses to crisp suits. So, in honor of her timeless fashion, we’re highlighting 15 of her best fashion moments, complete with a handy guide for how to replicate each look.
1. Cape Dress + Skinny Belt
The occasion was Markle’s first royal engagement with the queen, so you knew she was going to dress to impress. This belted Givenchy dress has a removable cape, but honestly, why would you ever remove it when it looks this good on?
2. Tailored Suit + Heels
That moment when you look better in a suit than your husband does. No offense to Prince Harry, but we can’t get over how damn chic our girl Meghan looks in this slim-fit Givenchy number during a visit to Ireland. The key here is tailoring: The pants hit right at her ankle bone, while the sleeves end just above her wrists—doubly flattering.
3. Robe Coat + Skinny Pants + Pumps
Is it possible to wear a glorified robe in public and still look amazing? We’re glad you asked. Markle balances the proportions of her oversize coat by belting it and pairing it with skinny pants.
4. Midi Dress + Nude Pumps
In the past few years, Markle has tended to shy away from super form-fitting ensembles. This bold yellow Brandon Maxwell dress, which she wore to a reception in London in 2018, is a slight—and gorgeous—departure. More of this streamlined, body-skimming silhouette, please.
5. Fit-and-Flare Dress + Pumps
For a taping of the Today show way back in 2016, Meg wore an old Hollywood-esque fit-and-flare number that nips in her waist before fanning out to a full midi skirt. As usual, her accessories are understated perfection: In this case, her golden pointy-toe pumps create the illusion of an even longer, more slender leg.
6. Pinstripe Dress + Blazer
Is it just us, or is this look the perfect combination of dressed-up and effortless? Take off the blazer and heels and you’ve got a casual-cool outfit that would look amazing with flats; or swap the striped dress and crossbody for an LBD and you’re cocktail-party ready.
7. Cropped Jacket + Midi Pencil Skirt
Oh hi, Jackie O. While attending a memorial service for Anzac Day with Prince Harry and Prince William, Markle dressed to polished perfection in a black Emilia Wickstead skirt suit and a hat by Philip Treacy. The look is elegant, modern (thanks to the cropped silhouette of the jacket) and fit for a duchess.
8. Turtleneck + Midi Skirt
For her first public engagement of 2020, Markle wore a monochrome ensemble, which consisted of a brown turtleneck, satin skirt and camel coat. In shades of camel, caramel and brown, it was simple, yet sophisticated
9. Cape gown + Drop Earrings
At the 2020 Mountbatten Festival of Music, the duchess stepped out in a stunning floor-length dress by Safiyaa. Was it a coincidence that her gown matched Prince Harry’s military uniform? We think not.
10. Tailored dress + statement Clutch
Remember that iconic rain photo? Markle donned a tailored blue dress by Victoria Beckham, which she paired with a statement Stella McCartney clutch (natch).
11. Coat Dress + White Accessories
For the National Service of Thanksgiving at this year’s Platinum Jubilee, the duchess channeled her inner Olivia Pope with an off-white custom Dior coat dress and a matching white hat. We’re sure the Fixer would approve.
12. White Suit + White Heels
One thing’s for sure: white is Markle’s color. The duchess was spotted in this all-white ensemble at a reception for the Invictus Games earlier this year.
13. Green Shirt Dress + Black Heels
During the 2019 royal tour of South Africa, Markle visited ActionAid in Johannesburg. The duchess turned heads in a button-down business casual dress, which featured pockets and a belt.
14. White Blazer + All-Black Everything
Once again, the duchess has mastered the business casual look. Markle opted for this chic and sophisticated ensemble when she and Prince Harry attended day two of the Invictus Games at Sydney Olympic Park in 2018.
15. Off-the-shoulder Top + Black Details
Markle dressed up for the Invictus Games Opening ceremony in 2020, and we’re definitely noticing a theme when it comes to her outfit choices. The duchess stepped out in a trendy white off-the-shoulder top with black pants and black shoes.
