Unless you have been living under a rock since November 2017, you’ll be quite aware that Prince Harry proposed to girlfriend Meghan Markle, and she said YES! And with that her journey to become a royal begins.
As part of her royal evolution, Markle will have to change quite a few things, among which is her style. Let’s take a look at how she is stepping up her wardrobe game…
She Said Yes!
Of course, we begin with the iconic engagement photos, and we can already see the move to understated elegance, no trend-chasing here. This is what they are talking about when they say timeless classics, pieces that you can wear at nearly any age, no matter how fashion changes. A muted palette is also a great way to do this, black and gold go with everything, as well as simple embellishments.
The Modern Nobility
While this may be a pre-engagement snap, the effortless style is already apparent, in a crisp blue shirt, and while her days of distressed denim are behind her, they can easily be swapped out for fitted pinstripe slacks or flared palazzo pants and still look exquisite, finished off with matching classic accessories.
These Oliver Peoples OV5183SM O’MALLEY NYC sunglasses are a great option, as they will go with everything and will last you a lifetime with the right care.
Chic and Cheerful
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle visited Cardiff, Wales . After visiting Cardiff Castle the couple visited Star Hub, a community and leisure centre which uses sport to engage young people and aid social development. Harry and Meghan were particularly keen to see the work of StreetGames, which the Prince has worked with previously, which works to make sport accessible to all young people, regardless of their social circumstances.

You can’t always be dressed to the nines, and sometimes you just need to be comfortable and take a breather. Aid worker vest aside, a slip dress, or a simple clean-cut white blouse and some khaki slacks, paired with gold detail accessories like these Ray-Ban RB3479, or a delicate bracelet. A signature casual look.
Whether running errands or visiting with friends, Ms Markle always dresses the part, in neutrals here, with a heavy knit black sweater, matching skinny slacks and a longline flowing coat in cream, and delicate initial jewellery.
Marc Jacobs MARC ICON 096/S sunnies give the look the slightest edge, and the result is as always, oodles of poised style.
This look is a step by step guide on how to look gracefully chic in your outwear this winter. Nearly an all-black look, except for the pop of colour in her tasselled green handbag, the knee length belted coat, with a detailed collar, the tucked-in black scarf and the ‘I just threw my hair up’ updo.
Avoid any glare when the sun makes an appearance with ELLE EL14867 sunglasses in … you guessed it, black! and you’re all set for your next outdoor event.
