It's not every day you marry a prince, and even rarer to posses a natural style so chic you glide effortlessly though royal life. While we love her sister-in-law Kate Middleton's classic aesthetic, Meghan Markle's outfits take a much more modern approach—giving us the sartorial envy we crave and the inspo we need to upgrade our closets. Even though Markle's style has evolved some as she's made her way from girlfriend to duchess, a couple things are certain: Her wardrobe is uniquely her and a true representation of fashion's storytelling power. Check back often to track Meghan's fashion journey, and shop her chicest looks for yourself ahead.
