I started this post last year, exactly one day before all the Megxit commotion, so I decided to step back a little bit as well and wait until things get settled. Now, that the Sussex family has a new home here in Canada, I decided to finish my own Meghan Markle’s Fashion Journal and share it with you guys. For the purpose of this post, I saved my 25 favourite outfits that have her own royal signature style and that will look good forever.
For her debut at an official royal appearance on December 1st, 2017, the future Duchess of Sussex wore a sand midi skirt by Joseph and amazing over-the-knee boots by Kurt Geiger. How not to fall in love with such a modern outfit? P.S. I’m still looking for a similar skirt since then.
On April 18, 2018, Markle attended the Commonwealth Youth Forum reception. For that occasion, she wore a midi dress with buttons from Altuzarra with a black blazer by Camilla and Marc. Yes, our Duchess knows the power of a third piece to make an outfit even more special.
For the following day, on April 19, 2018, the bride to be made an appearance at the Women’s Empowerment reception wearing an all-black outfit. Please, take note, all women need a Little Black Dress.
Late in the same year, on June 14, 2018, for her first solo event with Queen Elizabeth, the Duchess wore a custom light beige Givenchy dress. The twist of this look was a little cape covering her upper torso and black accessories.
On July 5, 2018, Meghan gave us a surprise with a yellow pencil dress by Brandon Maxwell and beige Manolo Blahnik pumps. She wore this colourful outfit while attending the “Your Commonwealth” Youth Challenge Reception in London’s Marlborough House.
Five days later, on July 10, 2018, our Duchess had her first evening event of their royal visit to Ireland. For the party at the British Ambassador’s residence, Markle wore a sleeveless black dress by Emilia Wickstead with matching black heels and belt. Once again, she showed us the power of a not so Little Black Dress.
For the next day, on July 11, 2018, Markle switched out the dress for a trouser suit by Givenchy. She kept the rest of the look simple, and easy for us to copy, with a white tee and black heels.
Later, on July 26, 2018, Meghan wore a belted midi, dark indigo denim dress by House of Herrera and a clutch bag by J. Crew. Our Duchess wore this outfit to watch her husband’s polo game. P.S. I loved the glasses, but I couldn’t find the ID.
On October 17, 2018, Meghan Markle arrives at Dubbo Airport (AU) wearing a blazer by Serena Williams, a Maison Kitsune top and Outland denim. I loved the blazer, and I found some versions of it on Farfetch and Banana Republic.
Later, on October 19, 2018, for the Australian War Memorial Day, Meghan wore an amazing all-black dress by Emilia Wickstead. This is one of my favourites outfits because it’s simple and timeless at the same time.
Two days later, on October 21, 2018, to attend a reception hosted by the Prime Minister of Australia at The Pavilion Restaurant, Meghan Markle wore a white pinstriped blazer by L’Agence, a black turtleneck top and dark jeans.
The next day, on October 22, 2018, Meghan wore a Reformation dress and Sarah Flint wrap sandals to delivers a dockside look in Kingfisher Bay. By the way, Reformation opened its first Canadian store last year, at the Yorkdale mall.
On October 26, 2018, Markle finished the royal Australian tour attending a formal affair wearing an Oscar de la Renta gown with Aquazurra black pumps. Okay, probably this gown won’t look good forever, but it’s my favourite then I need to have it here.
On October 28, 2018, already in New Zealand, our Duchess wore a black dress by Gabriela Hearst with a pair of Stuart Weitzman heels. For the occasion, she also wore a dainty necklace with a traditional Maori design. I particularly love this outfit because is a Little Black Dress with a twist, perfect for any formal occasion.
For the next day, on October 29, 2018, to visit Courtenay Creative in Wellington, Markle wore a tuxedo dress– made with sustainable cotton– by Maggie Marilyn. She completed the look with navy blue suede Manolo Blahnik BB pumps and kept the dainty necklace.
Back to London, on December 10, 2018, the mom to be showed off her baby bump in a one-shoulder black velvet gown and gold, strappy sandals by Tamara Mellon.
On January 14, 2019, the Duchess of Sussex caught all the attention in a red and purple outfit. She combined a Sentaler wrap coat with a midi dress from Babaton by Aritzia and pumps by Stuart Weitzman.
Two days later, on January 16, 2019, when visiting a London-based animal charity, the Duchess wore an oatmeal-coloured turtleneck dress from the H&M maternity line with a beige Emporio Armani coat. She completed the look with Manolo Blahnik pumps and a Stella McCartney tote.
I love our Duchess black dresses, but I also love her nude outfits. So, the outfit that she wore on January 30, 2019, to pay a visit to the National Theatre in London needed to be here. The Duchess looked even more gorgeous in a blush-pink Brandon Maxwell fit-and-flare dress. She completed the look with a matching blazer, white clutch and Aquazzura pumps.
Then, a complete change. On February 1st, 2019, Markle visited the Bristol Old Vic Theatre wearing a printed midi dress by Oscar de la Renta and green boots. I really loved this bird’s print, as well as her makeup.
On September 12, 2019, for her first public engagement since coming back from maternity leave, our Duchess wore a pair of black trousers and a white shirt. The outfit was from the Womenswear Collection, her capsule line in collaboration with the not-for-profit organization Smart Works, and she wore for the launch of the line.
On September 23, 2019, during the Royal tour to South Africa, Meghan wore a bright blue midi dress by Veronica Beard to visit the District Six Museum in Cape Town. If it looks familiar, that’s because she sported it in October 2018. Conscious and sustainable Duchess.
On October 25, 2019, Meghan did it again. She wore her red pencil skirt for the second time. For the occasion, she opted for a monochromatic look with a dark red sweater and red heels by Sarah Flint. Note: She also has the same skirt in green. Just like every girl when falls in love with some clothing.
Finally, on January 7, 2020, after the family time in Canada and for her first engagement of the year, Meghan wore a chic camel coat by Reiss over a brown Massimo Dutti turtleneck and matching satin midi skirt. Note: I’m truly obsessed with satin midi skirts, and a really need one.
Let me know which one is your favourite 😉
