#Heghan is now officially a thing, so of course, everyone wants a piece of Meghan Markle's fashion game. Just like the Kate effect, Meghan's fashion choices have started to gain a cult following, and it's not hard to see why. Her cool yet understated sense of style is definitely fit for a modern princess.
Here are five dress-up pointers to pick up from Meghan:
1. The Suits star is not afraid to add a little modern edge to her classic wardrobe.
Meghan is partial to tailored pieces, like a well-fitting top and a sexy pencil skirt, which she updates with trendy touches. Seen here in a monochrome outfit, Meghan adds edge to her pencil skirt by pairing it with a matching crop top and a moto jacket in the same color.
2. While the Duchess of Cambridge is more British countryside chic, Meghan is all California girl.
And it certainly shows, what with her laidback and effortless approach to dressing. She's definitely on board the athleisure trend, sporting skinny jeans and white sneakers like a street style pro. Add an olive green cargo jacket and avaitor sunnies to nail the "I woke up like this" look.
3. She totally dresses for comfort, too.
But she finds ways to smarten up her look! Wide-legged pants get the luxurious treatment when done in silk, in an eye-catching color, and with a fun print. She's not afraid to go for unexpected footwear, too, sporting metallic loafers on her feet, because who said you couldn't be classic and adventurous at the same time?
4. Meghan balances skin-baring designs with more covered-up pieces.
She has a penchant for dressing down blazers and button-downs with shorts, which is perfect for a summer look. Meghan's modern take on the suit is refreshing, so don't be afraid to play around with different lengths, prints, and textures to add a playful flair to an otherwise monotone look.
5. She's also not afraid to take a few trends and put her own spin on them!
Denim on denim? Why not! Here, she pairs a light-wash denim button-down with her dark-wash skinny jeans, along with lace-up flats and a structured handbag. The trick to doing denim on denim? Different washes for some much-needed contrast. Throw on a pair of sunglasses and you're ready to go!
