How to start dressing like Meghan Markle

Meghan Markle became Duchess of Sussex in 2018, but she had won the hearts of millions ever since being featured in the American drama series Suits. Although she is now a former duchess, she has been breaking the royal rules, but even that doesn’t make her look any less elegant. Do you like Meghan’s style? Would you like to recreate some of her looks? Here are 7 things you can do to follow her lead.

1. Highlight your waist

Even if you don’t have an hourglass figure, you can still highlight your waist. Meghan usually turns to belts and wide skirts for help. Such accents, together with a visible collarbone, make her look more feminine and tender even when she is wearing a denim dress. You can highlight your waist even on a straight figure with skinny belts. Trying to tuck in some tummy? High-rise jeans and skirts will surely help you get there. Also a pencil skirt will draw attention to your hips, so it also visually slims your waist in contrast. It’ll make you look really flattering.

2. Match your clothes and accessories

The Duchess of Sussex loves to sport big bags and she always chooses colors that will look good with her dress or suit. A pink dress and a grey bag are the perfect example of this. To choose the colors of your accessories, you have to learn what colors can be combined. The contrast of complementary colors gives you some vibrant combinations. Some examples are: green and yellow, red and blue, cobalt blue and turquoise, orange and blue, pink and grey and tan and maroon.

3. Get yourself some good-quality flats

Heels are the classic norm for the royal ladies but Meghan Markle has her own way of flaunting a different royal look. Another surprise from Meghan is that flats can look perfectly royal and even go with an evening gown! She rocks them with classic trench coats, jeans, and ankle-length skirts and gowns. If you buy some good-quality flats, they’ll make your entire look more expensive and you’ll get the added bonus of comfort with no blisters. One idea for an office look with flats is to combine them with long shorts and a T-shirt, or throw on a tweed coat or blazer.

4. Wear some accessories

Meghan spices it up with accessories even when she is wearing a gorgeous dress that looks a masterpiece by itself. Her clutches, necklaces and colorful jewelry make her whole look more complete and add some bright accents. Although glasses aren’t popular with the Royal family , Meghan wears them with an elegant hat or with a beautiful dress and the overall look is just flawless. If you want to flaunt some accessories as well, keep in mind these basic rules: when it comes to accessories, it’s 3 to 4 items at the most.

5. Get white shirts

They’re simple, elegant & classic – seems like enough reasoning for Her Royal Highness to fancy some white shirts on various occasions: from informal walks when she pairs them with jeans to fancy evenings when they look so cute with classic black skirts. If you still don’t have a white basic button down shirt in your closet, get yourself one – or even a couple of them. They aren’t nearly as boring as they might seem and go well with just about anything!

6. Get a solid Cardigan

If you look into Meghan’s wardrobe for inspiration, you’ll find quite a few long cardigans that go well with or over just about anything: from dresses to jeans. A cardigan made of luxurious cashmere might cost you quite a bit, but it’s an investment that’s totally worth it. A longer classic tan or navy cardigan will go well with almost anything in your closet, and when combined with the right shoes and a statement necklace, for instance, it will give you the effect of effortless chic.

7. Emphasize your Clavicle

Out in the public, Meghan draws the attention of millions of eyes by showing her collarbone with a feminine subtleness. If you want to dress like her, get yourself a dress or a shirt that emphasizes your collarbone. By the way, these types of tops are really comfortable, so you’ll be able to lift your arms and so on. And, a sweetheart neckline dress or top will look glamorous on anyone and add some royal-like charm to your style.
