5 times Meghan Markle showed us how to wear skirts

From Suits to being the Duchess of Sussex and then to renouncing her title, the one thing Meghan Markle holds dearly to herself are her skirts!

The two years as a Royal, the ex Duchess of Sussex has proven time and again to be a subtle style update to the traditional royal family. Meghan Markle, over the years has emerged as a global fashion icon from her journey as Rachel in Suits to two years of being a Duchess. Every time Markle steps out, she comes in the spotlight for her three qualities we absolutely admire, her radiant smile and kindness proving to be a “People’s Princess” and her polished sense of style.

Before the ring on her finger too, the Suits actress reflected a wardrobe status to be a one-day royal. Although you might see her pushing the royal grounds from time to time, one thing you’ll miss is the other side of Markle dressing in mini-skirts and bandeau dresses. Always being critiqued and compared to the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, or even late Princess Diana, Markle holds a soft power of fashion that helps her being distinguished from the two. One might assume that the Duchess of Sussex hires a stylist to help her look the way she does, considering her busy life but in an interview with Elle, Markle’s friend clears the air informing us that it’s all Meghan’s own credits and effort. The actress turned royal styles herself and is responsible for becoming the new age fashion influencer that she is.

In the past, we’ve seen the Duchess making news with whatever she wears. Right from her elegant custom-made Givenchy wedding gown designed by Clare Waight Keller to her statement-making monochrome and tonal look outfits (sometimes even re-worn) from her royal wardrobe. Meghan Markle’s goal is to always let her work speak louder than her clothes. This time we chart five of the most-watched staple skirts Markle has worn that have sold out as soon as she steps out in them.

On the Duke and the Duchess announcement of stepping back from their royal duties and heading to Canada, we got the last glimpse of Markle as Duchess in a ravishing tonal-brown outfit. On the Duchess was a lighter shade camel coat by Reiss, under which she wore a rust-coloured turtleneck teamed with chocolate-coloured, satin midi skirt both by Massimo Dutti with a gorgeous pair of velvet pumps by Jimmy Choo.

On the way to a surprise trip to another official engagement, Markle was spotted in a fluted, deep green skirt from Greta Constantine, a cream-colored Victoria Beckham sweater topped with a waterfall Mackage coat. The look was finished off with the same pair of Jimmy Choo (something we appreciate) and a burgundy Charlotte Elizabeth bag.

Back in 2017, the couple visited the city of Nottingham in the East Midlands. While this was the first official “job” of the two, the Duchess kept her ensemble formal yet stylish. Markle chose a full length, deep blue Mackage buttoned coat – made of cashmere fabric. The jet black Colorado bodysuit was by an Austrian label, Wolford, paired with a beige, fit-and-flare Laurel midi skirt by Joseph. The detailing on the skirt was of soft pleats, a rough hem, and a high waistline. The over-the-knee suede boots by Kurt Geiger did the job of making the silhouette look more elegant.

On their visit to Sussex in 2018, Markle’s first step in Sussex was in a striking Hugo Boss green leather skirt with an olive green blouse by Other Stories and a cream-colored Georgio Armani cashmere overcoat. This outfit was carried with a Gariela Hearst demi green pouch handbag.

The Duchess of Sussex, 38, once again wore her favorite design from BOSS by Hugo Boss at Windsor Castle on the week followed by her and Prince Harry’s controversial documentary. This one was a red shade pencil skirt at the roundtable discussion on gender equality. The fitted skirt was paired with a simple burgundy blouse and red pumps. To break the block of colors Markle cleverly gave us all a styling tip to choose different fabrics.
