MiaMia there's no need to be snide. Because someone doesn't like her 'casual' style doesn't mean it's over their head.

Well Pranter, frankly I see some of the critiques of Meghan's choices here as rather 'snide' and OTT. The unnecessary negativity I happen to find questionable. It is my opinion that those harping on not seeing Meghan as having a style (..)

Fashion watching is a lighthearted pursuit with everyone having personal preferences. And of course, to each their own in that respect. I think it's possible to have fun and enjoyable conversations without all the OTT dismissiveness, seen in such comments suggesting Meghan has no style and that she's worn nothing whatsoever to like. There's really no basis for some of the completely negative comments that are then sugarcoated and backtracked by claims of admiration.

(..)

WE all here have very different views on what looks good and what looks wrong.....and I don't mind heels at a sports event for Meghan was not playing sports. I have worn heels to baseball games, no big deal, my feet hurt, then my fault.

I view Meghan's style akin to what Princess Charlene wears. Meghan is very unique among royals imo yet is presenting a very accessible fashion sense that is particularly photogenic. The way Maxima uniquely wows with her patterns, Meghan is doing the same with her 'architectural' style, which I see as having a certain timeless quality.

I very much hope Meghan does not change her style preferences. There is nothing predictable about her and I am looking forward to watching her.

I look forward to changes in Meghan's style as she adapts to her new life. Actually, I am more interested in her twist on fashion. She is hoping to have children and we all know that can screw up the fashion but I'll still be interested to see.

For anyone who wonders about royals and fashion, you can't go past Sophie to see the fashion curve neatly turned into a bow! She hit 40 and discovered her very own groove and hasn't looked back since.

We all have our own personal tastes and prefences.

I really dont get why we end up having posters fighting amongst themselves. Thought the fashion trends are the fun ones but clearly I was wrong.

We always do this, you can go to any royal lady's fashion trend and there are always different views.

I may not like some of Meghans choices but at the end of the day they are her choices. Sometimes we project what we think someones style should be or we want them to dress more like a particular royal lady. What works for someone might not work for someone else.

She is exciting for me because we dont know her "working style" as yet. We are getting to discover it with her and we may not like everything she wears.
I know this is not a popular opinion but I also dont mind the royals that have found their "uniform". It must be difficult to dress for a role where you are "representing". So you find what works and you stick to it. We all have your "uniforms" in our closets . You might think you dont but if you do.

So Meghan will find her own thing and we will learn to just deal with it (like we have learnt to accept & understand the other royal ladies styles".
We have already started to accept that she is not a big colour person. Thats fine.

.

The thread has once again been cleaned up. Personal, insulting comments towards other members, posts discussing weight as well as off-topic posts have been removed according to the TRF rules. This is not a thread about the Duchess of Cambridge or Sarah, the Duchess of York, please confine yourself to the given subject. Instead of bickering, simply accept differing opinions. We don't need a fundamental debate on criticism each time Meghan Markle comes up with a new outfit, instead please share your opinions and respect the ones your fellow members share and that in a civil, open-minded manner. Thank you.

Meghan Markle's Fashion and Style Part One: November 2017 -

Not liking the jacket ( not sure if it’s a jacket ) and hair. Dress seems good from what I can see Harry looks great
I’m always amazed how anyone can wear heels so high I have never managed it

I'm a fan of the whole outfit. Shoe and purse game is strong! I do wish she'd kept the blazer on. The cut didn't look right draped over her shoulders but the dress feels a little too casual relative to the other attendees without it.

I like the whole look. The shoes are cute. I think we should come to expect that Meghan will not come to an event in stockings, plain pumps and skirt suit. She will only go to stockings if the queen is present. Which one of the items she's wearing today will sell out in 24 hours?

She takes it off once inside. So it might’ve been a little chilly go without it outside. I don’t like the crossbody on after she took off the jacket inside though. I feel like both the jacket and the bag should’ve been handed off to you the assistant once inside. That dress deserve to be photographed on its own.

I'm seeing pics now of her inside greeting folks with the blazer on too.

Although a very nice sundress, it looks too summery and casual to me. It would be great for an outdoor summer engagement.

She started out with it on in the meet/greet line then it came off. Might of just been in the way. It does look more finished on. Still I really like the dress.

Shoes are amazing. Hair looks decent. Is her dress supposed to be more "dressy"?
It's not a home-run bit it's an improvement
