I think so too.
It's all right, but I am finding her style rather bland.

I don’t think of Capri pants as business like. I like them, but it’s more casual than business dress imo. Especially the super tight ones. I don’t mind it, but it’s not really business attire to me.

Out of curiosity- what is a girlie/not grown woman look? Dresses? That’s more formal to me and always appropriate. Do you not like dresses and skirts?

Well... I guess she’s expanding to blue, so that’s something.

I personally am not a huge fan of the coat (maybe if it waan’t Wool). It looks nice from afar but I saw it up close online and.. no.
Yes to the Capri, and they’re not super tight so that an extra point! no to the damn black (there are more shades in the color palates Meghan).
I love the sweater, the shape and color. Not a cashmere fan myself, even though it’s a blend.

Taking away the coat and silly stiletto (I saw the pics she looked like she was about to fall and break her legs on them)(also those shoes come in other shades!) I like the pants and sweater combo, but! I’m taking away points for once again sticking to basic neutrals. That pants could and should have been a different color.

Once again, separately her stuff are awesome. Together? A monochrome mess.

I wasn’t expecting colour. That’s ship has said but the Capri pants and hair are awful as usual.

I like the sweater, but everything else (including the hair) are a miss for me. The coat, again, looks to big, the pants with the heals looks strange and the hair is falling in her face (which in turn makes her keep pushing it back). I'm all for a monochromatic look but this is not pushing any buttons for me. I would have loved to have seen this sweater with the beige skirt she worn or a nice pair of trousers (hemmed to the correct length).

Her hair hangs down and covers her face. Needs to be off her face

I don't think there is anything wrong with her hair. It looks like its freshly washed. And really, since she has long hair, there is not much she can do with it unless she puts it up, brings out the headband or cuts it and does the bangs look. And I am thinking she doesn't want bangs.

Frankly, I am getting weary of the black as well. As this is from someone who has over 30 pairs of black pants! I don't get the capris either...didn't England just have a big snow storm (i.e. Emma?).

If its true that she wants people to focus on the event and not her wardrobe, that's all good but she will at some point have to improve her wardrobe a bit. As Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother said during World War II (and I am paraphrasing here) people put on their best to meet me and I am going to wear my best when I meet them. I would expect her to at least dress up on Royal Ascot and other such snazzy and dressy events. But I guess we will have to wait for that.

Right so this might sound really odd, but I'm just going to say it and it's meant with no offence.

I think Meghan dresses like Meghan would if she wasn't in her situation re - marrying a Prince. I want her to be comfy, and dress for herself but I always remember hearing that The Queen dresses in bright colours so she can be seen when the crowds are 4 deep. Does that make sense?

The shoes, IMO, too high for that event and style of outfit. She's got a 'working outfit' with a evening heel.

Oh Pranter I can’t even....I hope she put in as much time for the bridal gown as you and others have. I’ll say it, I’m disappointed

Very well said. There is a reason women of the royal family dress in a certain way.

I agree Lumu!

Maybe we should tweet that to Kensington Palace! But than again, if she started to wear bright colors she would be accused of being attention seeking! She can't win.

Either way...its barely been a year...and she is not even married yet.

It will take her a minute or so to find her royal fashion groove. It took Diana, Sophie and Camilla at least five years. So here's hoping it gets better!

again she looks unkempt to me
to start there is something wrong with way she wore her coats always looks big and unfitted..today coat is very pretty but Meghan totally ruins it first with the way she wore it second match it the Navy coat with black capri looks all wrong and fumpy Imo and then the heels away tooo hight for the event and the so called working outfit i won't add anything about the lack of color in her wardrobe i think posts above said much

How is Jessica Mulroney justifying her [doubtless substantial] retainer? Given she must have EVERY single purveyor of Black trousers and Wrap Coats across the Nation on speed-dial.


Her client is doubtless a VERY busy Woman, but her 'stylist' CANNOT be, given her uninspired and 'samey' choices..

This is my biggest issue with these looks. How in the world does a professional stylist have so little imagination that she apparently isn’t capable of putting together a winter outfit without black trousers?

I do like this coat and top though, so I’m just looking at photos from waist up.
