Meghan Markle is our hero in so many ways - apart from being a philanthropist who cares and she’s an incredible style icon. She does it a little different from Kate Middleton, and doesn’t necessarily follow the style rules. But that’s what we love about her! Meghan wasn’t always so primp and proper before her princess preparations, but she’s navigated royal style life beautifully. Here are our favorite pre-wedding looks, all leading up to the big moment.
Women Empowerment Reception
At the Women Empowerment Reception in London, Markle looked ravishing in black once again. This was the ultimate lesson in sticking to simplicity when it comes to every woman’s necessity: the notorious little black dress, or LBD. Here, she opted for another midi silhouette in this dress by Black Halo, with a skinny belt and ankle-wrap stilettos, accessorized with the ultimate clutch and white gold earrings. We love the asymmetrical neckline, which adds depth.
Commonwealth Day Ceremony.
Here, Markle made an appearance that was her first public event with the queen, at the Commonwealth Day Ceremony. She opted for a beret-style hat once again, this time in cream, which made for a very striking look. The matching cream jacket and navy dress. Perfectly paired accessories included a navy bag and pointy suede navy stilettos. The navy and cream color combination looked absolutely flawless.
Belfast, Northern Ireland
For Markle’s visit to Belfast in northern Ireland, she paired a classic creamy neutrals with rich tones for a devastatingly stylish look. She opted for a dark green midi skirt, this time, featuring an innovative hemline. She stayed cozy in a cream cashmere sweater and a gorgeous camel-toned, front drape wool coat with a bag in hand. The russet-toned pumps, and added a dark romance to the look.
