It’s official! Prince Harry has popped the question to actress Meghan Markle and they are engaged. Just moments after the news was confirmed by Kensington Palace, the internet collectively lost its mind. And why not? Everyone’s favourite former bachelor and the Suits actress make for an impossibly dashing pair and we are sure their wedding will be the stuff of fairy tales.
While details about the couple and their big day are still emerging (how amazing is that wedding ring?), we can bet that Markle will all but sparkle on her wedding day set for 2018. After all, she is one of the chicest celebrities out there. And even though, we won’t be able to help you land a handsome Prince of your very own, we can help you copy Meghan Markle’s utterly effortless and yet oh-so-fabulous street style.
1. The beanie
Meghan Markle is hardly ever seen without a beanie. She really (really) loves them. Whether she is heading to a workout or hanging out with her mother, the actress is rarely ever seen without a beanie and we understand why – a good beanie is not only snug but it is the perfect way to mask a bad hair day.
2. Skinny jeans
Skinny jeans are incredibly versatile. You can dress them up with stilettoes or dress them down with a pair of loafers and a sweatshirt. Meghan Markle is a pro at making skinny jeans look runway ready every time she steps out. Don’t believe us? She recently styled a pair of ripped skinny jeans with ballet flats and a crisp white shirt and we almost didn’t notice the strapping prince holding her at the recently concluded Invictus games.
3. Formal shorts
For work events, Meghan is often seen out and about wearing formal and yet fitted shorts with a matching blazer. It’s fun and yet professional at the same time. And would you blame her for wanting to show off her toned pins?
4. Oversized jackets
Much of Meghan’s style seems to be all about wanting to be snug and comfortable and we aren’t complaining. You won’t have to worry about losing holiday weight if you are wrapped inside one of the many oversized coats that Meghan is often spotted in. And yes, she often pairs them with her beloved beanies.
Celebrities rarely step out of their homes without a killer pair of shades and Meghan is no different. She tends to favour large bug-eyed shades that undoubtedly help her in avoiding the glare of pesky paparazzi. She will be needing a few of those if she wants to directly stare at her gorgeous engagement ring.
6. The tote bag
No outfit is ever complete without a bag to carry all your necessities. And Meghan favours large tote bags over tiny wallets even on date nights. Here she is with a Mulberry tote that is both stylish and functional.
7. The boots
Meghan’s style is truly versatile as she seems completely at home with sky high heels or a pair of loafers. And yet, winter after winter, she seems to keep coming back to the same pair of Kamik boots.
