I'm seriously in love with this skirt... I have a strong feeling Meghan will be a tragedy for my bank account

This is the thing that gets me about all this. As much of a style icon as Diana was, she passed away twenty years ago. It's really unfair to compare her clothes from the 90s to her current daughter in law and daughter in law to be.

The picture of the boots from the website didn't look like it's intended to be crumpled. However, given how thin her legs are, anything that doesn't hold up on its own will probably slide down. Not having much sympathy for her though, that's one heck of a problem to have.

Funny.

Apparently it’s ‘style goals’ which is a good thing (I’m not hip to the lingo)

Obviously the only woman before Meghan to wear a black top with a beige skirt and boots was Caroline, so too with the camel coloured coat, little black dress, etc. et al.

How sad that nobody else is allowed to choose their own clothes and styles because they absolutely have to be those that someone more important than her wore.

I see as much of Meghan's clothes ghosting Caroline as I do Catherine's ghosting Diana's. The fashion writers are just too lazy to do their jobs.

I can see the Carolyn/Meghan similarities, honestly. But I'm not convinced Meghan has been trying to channel Carolyn.

Fashion is really not that varied. It repeats ...so yeah at some point someone is going to wear something that looks like a previous style or something someone else has worn....people can have similar taste in clothing without there being a deliberate plan to dress like another person.

Exactly so imo, too.

I'm glad you identified who was being referenced because I was clueless. More than that, I have no memory of her 'style' whatsoever. I am aware she was married to JFK Jr and there was always a buzz about him (and then her) but I didn't pay attention. It seemed to be an interest of my mother and aunts, that generation. I seriously doubt Carolyn is on Meghan's radar. JMO.

The discussion about Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy's wedding dress being an inspiration for Meghan Markle's wedding dress has been moved our extra thread "Meghan Markle: Wedding Dress Suggestions and Musings". Please use this thread for discussions about her current fashion choices only - thank you!

The dress Meghan wore to the Buckingham Palace Christmas lunch has been identified as from Self Portrait.

Earrings!


I looked at the full dress from the designer. So I can imagine how it would look on Meghan.

I'll admit to being quite interested in what sort of hat Meghan will wear on Christmas Day. She doesn't strike me as someone who has really worn any sort of formal hat before but it's all part of the new uniform. Maybe she'll surprise us all and be a new Queen Beatrix in her taste?
