When it comes to Meghan Markle's style, she has a distinct aesthetic: timeless, often minimalist, a good mix of high and low. That said, Meghan has lived many lives in the six years since we knew she was romantically involved with Prince Harry: a girlfriend turned fiancée turned wife as a working member of the royal family living in often chilly London, and then as someone no longer employed by the Firm living in often sunny California.
As a working royal, Meghan's coat game was impeccable, her outfits often neutral and muted in color, and she loved boat necks. Now, post-Firm, Meghan's look is significantly more California casual, with an affinity for button-downs, denim, and, lately, sweater vests. Across the years (and a whole lot of change), Meghan has still managed to stay true to herself, forever preferring and donning mostly solids, keeping it monochrome, blazers, Aquazzura and Manolo Blahnik heels, wide-leg trousers, skinny jeans, and pencil skirts (to name a few). She effortlessly mixes high and low and has a style that, while luxury, also feels attainable.
The great part about Meghan's style is that, well, it never really goes out of style, so looks even as far back as six years ago can still easily work today. We opted to not include the most formal of her royal looks (fascinators not included here), and hope we've captured the essence of a woman who very obviously knows fashion, studies it, and wows in it.
