Meghan Markle’s understated, yet polished, style has charmed many since her engagement to Prince Harry was announced. The actress has proven that it’s possible to be dressy without being fussy and chic without being showy. Here are some tips from the former Suits star on how to achieve her subtle polish look.
While short milky nails are often worn, JLo opted to maintain her customary long, almond-shaped nails. The effects resembled Victoria Beckham’s manicure from the Jacquemus runway presentation. The milky nails were a fantastic choice for her big day, even though the nude manicure Lopez sported during her recent trip in Capri would have been a more conventional alternative. Our judgement? Brides who wish to embrace bridal white and their inner diva can go for long milky nails.
Since the Sussex family moved to the US, Meghan’s taste for covert, stealth riches brands like The Row, Khaite, and Loro Piana has been on full show. The formal Givenchy dress coats have been replaced with casual tailoring, city shorts, and occasionally a Gabriela Hearst jumpsuit (Hearst’s brand is a natural fit for the royal due to her conscious approach).
The Duchess slipped a knit high-neck sleeveless blouse by Anine Bing into a pair of high-waisted beige pants by Brandon Maxwell on the second day of the couple’s first voyage back to Europe following the Platinum Jubilee celebrations. The concluding step? When Meghan initially entered the royal limelight, her undone bun became her defining hairdo.
In a knitted silk-cashmere polo shirt by Brandon Maxwell and matching fitted pants in a similar camel colour, she was seen on Monday as the pair arrived at Euston to board a train to Manchester.
The entire impression was one of subtle polish, which is the kind of thing most women aim to accomplish with their professional attire, thanks to the inclusion of luxurious accessories (a Cartier Tank watch and Love bracelet). But make no mistake, it takes effort to appear this carefree.
