I love her casual style and her Rachel Zane wardrobe on Suits.

Lets see how she will develop her royal wardrobe. Im looking forward to it!

Pranter 11-27-2017 07:34 AM

Will be interesting to see what she's wearing at the photo call and interview today!

I've heard that it's going to be in the garden at Kensington Palace, so hopefully something warm ;)

Pranter 11-27-2017 07:39 AM

Ah yeah if it's outside they'll need to take the weather into account.

Reports that she will be wearing a Canadian label for the photocall...

First royal outfit for Meghan!

Pranter 11-27-2017 10:26 AM

Honestly not a fan of the coat. I would of liked something more fitted/structured.

I'm hoping the dress we will see during the interview.


LaRae

TortillaChips 11-27-2017 10:29 AM

I don't do fashion and clothing at all but the two main things I have heard about the coat is that it Canadian and it is white - to fit in with the 'white garden' that they had the photocall - so to me it is wonderful :flowers:

Pranter 11-27-2017 10:38 AM

Meghan was wearing a white coat by Line the Label and a dress by PAROSH

soapstar 11-27-2017 11:07 AM

The white coat is lovely. I'm hoping we get photos of the dress.

I think a couple of the photos are a little unfortunate. The coat looked lovely on the video feed.
How tall is she ? She was wearing some high heels and still looks quite tiny.

Pranter 11-27-2017 12:08 PM

IIRC she's around 5'5 Harry is 6'2


LaRae

MaiaMia_53 11-27-2017 12:15 PM

Meghan is listed as 5' 7", which could be off by a bit. With heels she is brought up past Harry's shoulders to his ears. Compare with how much shorter she was wearing flats and walking next to Harry at the Invictus Games in September.

Elly C 11-27-2017 03:39 PM

I like what we can see of the green dress in the interview. Restrained and elegant.

IloveCP 11-27-2017 03:55 PM

Her engagement outfit is very elegant and beautiful. The coat and green dress are fantastic. Great shoes as well.

Anna Catherine 11-27-2017 03:58 PM

I didn’t like the coat as I don’t think it really flatters her, but from what I could see, the dress underneath was very pretty and a classic design.

O-H Anglophile 11-27-2017 04:05 PM

I really like her dress--I personally like green a lot and the style is very classic and unfussy.

Very elegant, good outfit. A great start to her journey and life as a future Duchess.

And I'm so glad she didn't wear these blasted panty hoses.

Pranter 11-27-2017 05:34 PM

Very nice, I do like it. LOVE the color!


LaRae

Missjersey 11-27-2017 10:55 PM

The belt on the coat looked like it moved or something. She looked nice though. My favorite thing is her smile

Abbigail 11-27-2017 11:09 PM

I love that coat! But I think the bow on the dress (which I also really like) made it look a bit bulky. Still, she looked lovely!

Juliette2 11-27-2017 11:31 PM

I am not crazy about her outfit: the coat is pretty but white should be reserved for the wedding day! Queen Letizia also wore white for the engagement announcement. I just don't understand it. Her heels (too high!) and posture were too"Hollywood" (e.g. Photo) and the hair distracting. The dress' colour was very nice but it was sleeveless. Her body language was slightly patronizing toward Prince Harry. Sorry if I'm a bit harsh!

O-H Anglophile 11-27-2017 11:48 PM

I never heard anyone say white was only for a wedding day before. I guess a lot of my summer wardrobe is wrong,:smile:

I noticed her posture right off the bat in viewing pictures of her today with Harry, that so called Hollywood pose if not something that should be done with Harry. That pose of sticking out the chest is for those on the red carpet who are trying to impress Hollywood and the media. I hope someone points that out to her so that it is not done in the future. Other then that, a great day for Harry and Meghan and they are most certainly in love.......boy does he eyes light up when he sees her....:lol:

If you didn't catch it....the reason for that odd pose is that she was in the middle of turning around (the video shows it) and she only had weight on one foot (if you look closer at the pic you can see from her feet too, that she's in the middle of a turn).

The media just likes to use these awkward poses.

LaRae

Abbigail 11-28-2017 12:06 AM

Well I liked her "posture". I think it was just fine for this occasion and quite refreshing to see. If she does it on official engagements, then I'll perhaps question it.

dazzling 11-28-2017 12:37 AM

Nothing special about her outfit, the coat was unflattering but the mix of the coat color and the dress was nice. Her looks was simple and clean. I loved her pumps.

Countessmeout 11-28-2017 01:29 AM

I really liked the coat. Pretty and simple, and perfect in the late fall garden :flowers:

I would have preferred perhaps a more fitted trench, was thinking Burberry, but still a nice choice.

The simple green dress was a great choice IMO. :smile:

I liked the dress and the colour I didn't like the coat at all it looks too big and it wasn't done up properly. It looked sloppy and really did her no justice.

rominet09 11-28-2017 08:21 AM

The dress was marvellous and the coat super !!!!

I like the color of the coat, but the tie didnt work for me. It wasnt flattering. It looked a bit messy.

The dress was lovely though.

Pranter 11-28-2017 09:58 AM

If the coat had been more structured and had a bit more weight to it I think it would of worked very well. I didn't care for it as it was.


LaRae

Mademoiselle Lilo 11-28-2017 04:25 PM

Imo she played safe,nothing to be excited about the dress is lovely and her hair looks nice but the coat is unflattering on her..this is her first royal appearance so it's fine to me

Meghan Markle's Fashion and Style Part One: November 2017 -
 
I have to disagree about her hair. Kate has had so much bad press about her hair I would expect the same for Meghan. She needs a hairdresser on call. The photos from suits show her hair looking beautiful so I hope she gets a good hairdresser in London

French Toast 11-28-2017 09:11 PM

What was wrong with her hair? It was neatly groomed with a nice fresh trim.

Juliette2 11-28-2017 09:57 PM

Generally speaking I hope I won't have to see those ripped jeans and untidy blouse she wore at the Invictus games...!! But it will be a dream for designers to dress her.

Abbigail 11-29-2017 03:29 AM

Her hair looked just fine to me and her makeup was lovely as well.

In her down time, like shopping or walking her dog, you may. She is off the clock and can dress as she chooses. She was a private citizen attending a sporting event.

At official events, no I would expect her casual clothes a bit more styled.

Her tote bag is fabulous! I am so in love with it!

Her overall look today was very classy and nicely put together.

Abbigail 12-01-2017 11:58 AM

Yes, I loved everything about her look today. The tote, the boots, the skirt, the coat all worked well together. She looked great.

Pranter 12-01-2017 12:26 PM

I bet that bag sells out if it hasn't already!


LaRae

Juliette2 12-01-2017 12:30 PM

Sorry, but I thought the looks were hideous. Very 1985...
The coat was very nice, but everything was mismatched: blue coat, black boots, eggplant bag...

Plus, the hair is distracting: Half of it was in the coat, half out. She keeps touching it and moving strands. There's a reason for tied-up/pinned hairstyles especially when it's windy!

Minea 12-01-2017 12:47 PM

The overall look is ok, even though I strongly dislike the saggy boots. I don't like her coat choices so far, they are sort of overpowering her, but at least they seem very comfortable. The green dress she wore for the interview was lovely!

I don't see anything wrong with her hairstyle. I'm sure we'll see her wear some nice updos for more formal occasions and even ponytails when she feels like it. I for one am looking forward to see them and how her style in general evolves.

I disagree. The colors all worked well enough together. She wore a black turtle neck under her coat, hence the black boots. Her hair does need a trim but other than the that the style works well for her.

I agree, not over the top but classic & elegant. She looks amazing ( they both do).

Princess B 12-01-2017 01:30 PM

For me her outfit was a miss. Like someone rightly said very 1985ish!
And the aubergine bag? It was a mismatch.
I quite liked her hair though, and the touching her hair just made her seem very normal

Missjersey 12-01-2017 01:37 PM

Thought she looked classy from head to toe. Especially love the skirt.

White reserved for her wedding day only????. :ermm:

I think that she looked great. Love the Coat and the dress. I know that a few media people were crying over the fact that she had bare legs. Love the Heels( I would probably break my neck walking on those stones:lol:) But, she is much shorter than harry, and we don't want him to have back problems by bending over too much to acknowledge her. She look great in the heels and even better she has the legs for them.

LadyGlendower 12-01-2017 01:51 PM

;)I agree that she will need some help with her hair----it looks shiny and beautiful, but windy UK days will not be her friend (as Kate discovered with hair, dress hems, etc.). I'm sure she will develop a relationship with a pro quickly.

Related, because it happened at St. Georges Chapel: does anyone else remember the wind that Sophie had to deal with on her wedding day? It made her veil/train billow out in dramatic fashion but her relatively shorter hair was on lockdown and saw her through the day without incident. Lets hear it for the pros!

AdmirerUS 12-01-2017 01:53 PM

I liked this a lot. It did not totally attention grab (I like that in a royal wearing training wheels) but that tan kick pleat peaking out from under the coat was kinda inspired :graduate:. Otherwise, it would have been completely dull. I liked the semi slouchy boots if only because they were not that very overdone suede boot that Kate-Camilla-Sophie (and so many others) wear all the time.

It's going to take a while for her to decide what her royal working style is going to be. Maybe more like one than 3 years, but it will take a while. And like every other royal, she will never please all of us.

I actually cared about my own fashion choices in 1985, so I also like the style of the coat. ;)

Jacknch 12-01-2017 02:16 PM

It's hard to tell what Meghan's fashion as a royal will be like, but I do really like her style so far - it has an edge to it an the plain, darker colours suit her a lot.

Agree 100%. :flowers: I think that may be what we see with her. Of course, only time will tell, but I don't think she'll be a clothes horse. She'll be doing the equivalent of opening her closet and coming up with an outfit (like Anne). She's not going to be a fashion-plate. I may get proved wrong but it will be interesting to see what she does. ;)

princess gertrude 12-01-2017 02:26 PM

I can find nothing wrong with the outfit from today. The turtleneck/skirt combo was great with Harry and his "no tie" outfit. The coat was lovely and her hair looked fine. I do wish she had put on a pair of earrings, but that's just me.


I actually loved the top/skirt combo, I would wear it in a "red hot minute". The skirt especially.

Elly C 12-01-2017 02:41 PM

I echo the above. She looks wonderful. Particularly love the skirt.

wyevale 12-01-2017 03:09 PM

I could really have done with a 'standout' colour'.. We are used to [female] Royals being identifiable in a crowd, and Ms Markle just wasn't.
I appreciate 'fine tuning will likely take year or two, but even I could workout that a pop of strong colour [big scarf/beanie hat, ANYTHING] would make me stand out in a mle as THE person they came to see...

Maybe that is the way she will see it. :flowers: I don't see her buying into royalty in that way. We have to remember she is not going to be the wife of an heir. They are looking at a more normalized life, a hybrid of the Wessexes and Tindalls (or maybe Anne is a better comparison).

soapstar 12-01-2017 03:27 PM

While I thought the outfit was just okay, I really liked the coat. One thing I didn't care for were the slouchy boots. They looked odd paired with that particular skirt.

Outfit without the coat

MaiaMia_53 12-01-2017 03:29 PM

Coming out of the gate, I think that Meghan is doing quite well. As a start, that white wrap coat and forest green wool dress were beautifully understated, but also a nod to the colors of Diana's white garden, where H&M stood for photographers. Meghan looked quite perfect. Some people complain about her skinny legs, but I think her legs are very striking and elegant -- she has long legs and arms, a long neck and a short torso -- she's small-boned and quite feminine and pretty. She wears heels very well, but I've also seen her in flat comfortable shoes quite often. For formal events and most public occasions, she will likely wear heels. Meghan is very dainty and sweet, but she's no lightweight either physically or intellectually. She's been doing yoga from the age of 7, so she's quite fit and she's developed a health and beauty routine that obviously works well for her.

What Meghan wore to announce the engagement is a subtle tribute to Diana's memory (thereby an inclusion of Diana in the joy she and Harry are experiencing). Of course, the engagement ring Harry designed using two of Diana's gems also symbolizes those same sentiments of heartfelt love and inclusion.

I agree that the British weather is something Meghan will come to learn about in regard to how she styles her hair. But it was quite fine this day. I didn't see her having any trouble with it at all. She usually wears casual hats mainly for protection against the sun, e.g., her trusty Panama hat, and of course her beanie in the winter. Therefore, it will be interesting to see how she chooses and carries off wearing dress hats at formal occasions, such as for church at Sandringham, and at Royal Ascot, etc. I can't wait for that photo op of M&H walking amidst other members of the royal family, including immediate family and cousins.

From a distance, I thought the overcoat seemed boring at the Nottingham event. But it was a cold somewhat overcast day. When I got a good close-up look of W&H together, I thought the outfit was suitable and comfortable for the day and the weather. In general though, it's true that with the dark navy overcoat, Meghan did not stand out in the crowd. Neither did Harry from a distance, aside from his ginger hair. So perhaps a colorful scarf worn by Meghan might have helped. I do wonder if the boots gave her any trouble during the day since they are over the knee. Likely she shirred them down a bit below her knee for comfort when sitting and walking around inside.

The way Meghan's beige skirt peaked out from the navy double-breasted coat was definitely quite lovely and refreshing. Plus the styling and cut on the front of the coat is distinctively tailored. But yes, in a crowd that can not be seen from a distance. In one of the video clips, later in the day, Meghan had removed her coat, and I saw a glimpse of the skirt's back. It really is nicely styled and stunning looking on her. The boots are quite fine too but maybe not the best choice for this type of event. Still, if she found them comfortable enough, they were certainly stylish and went fashionably well with the skirt. It was a good touch how well the beige of Meghan's skirt coordinated with the beige scarf around Harry's neck. :smile: There are more details and close-up looks here:

Overall, Meghan is quite stylish, elegant, and refreshing. She will learn as she goes and I'm sure she understands that every aspect of what she's undertaking will be a learning process. For now, she certainly equipped to handle it with her savvy style, grace and depth of intelligence and caring. She's definitely about being hands-on and engaged with the challenges ahead of her. I think it's wise she decided to start afresh with a clean slate and take time to decide which charities to focus her efforts on under the Royal Foundation umbrella, while making intensive efforts to become steeped in a better knowledge of her adopted country.

HereditaryPrincess 12-01-2017 04:14 PM

I love both of Meghan's outfits, particularly her engagement look. I think her choice of white was perfectly fine, it shouldn't just be reserved for wedding days. If we're going by that theory then black should be reserved for funerals too.

Me too. I think that due to her acting background, it will still take some people (not accusing Rudolph in particular of this, as I've seen this many other times in the media) to adjust to her, and this includes her fashion choices. I guess people will still expect her to wear typical celebrity red carpet style clothes, even though Meghan wasn't wearing those sorts of clothes before the engagement.

No, I think I didn't express myself well. Of course, you can wear white anytime you want but for an engagement announcement, I would choose another color and leave white for the wedding day! Queen Letizia also wore a white pantsuit and I just think it's not the right color for an engagement event, that's all! :smile:

That's the point, though...she may be a "normal person" and dress like one but she is now in an extraordinary role. If I want to see a "normal person" I can look at my neighbour!
I don't want to raise the issue, but it's the old "we don't want a normal Royal Family" vs "we want a down-to-earth Royal Family". It's a difficult balance...:flowers:

Meghan Markle's Fashion and Style Part One: November 2017 -
 
Personally, I don't buy into this need to wear something bright to stand out. The glimpse of the beige skirt achieved this anyway.
My hope for Meghan is that she will break the "no no" of British royals wearing smart trousers for engagements.

MARG 12-01-2017 04:28 PM

The only thing I didn't like was the boots. I think she got a crash course in why heavier (lined0 suede boots are worn by Camilla et al . . .it's freezing doing a walkabout and the cold creeps through the thin soles. We'll see if she changes them.

All in all a terrific start to her new life if a little dark.

don't get what someone mean by celebrity...i don't see where it's celeb, it looks very practical to me.That coat is alright,don't really like it but I love the rest of her outfit.very chic.I especially love the skirt,so different from what I was expecting her to wear and thank God for that�� I'm really hoping she doesn't start to dress like some of the royals.Best for her to stay true to her own style.

I agree with MARG. I didn't like her boots at all!

MaiaMia_53 12-01-2017 05:36 PM

Yes, I think the sense of casual comfort and accessibility but smart styling and sophistication that Meghan's clothes give off are why so many people are interested in following what she wears. Some of her accessories and a few other items are generally affordable. The Everlane tote she carried at the Invictus Games, her sunglasses, some of her shoes and tops are reasonably priced. For e.g., the Wolford Portland turtleneck is the most affordable item she wore today (for some pocketbooks ;)), and it's already sold out from most available sources. There's definitely quite a number of avid fans following Meghan around the world, and loving her refreshing style.

The exciting thing right now is seeing how Meghan meets the challenges of adapting her casual refreshing style to the necessities of being a royal wife. I think she will learn the best route to take in a nod to tradition and to practicalities, but she will also be retaining her own identity, and making some unique choices to keep things interesting. Meghan prefers a certain color palette, so let's see how she adapts to the demands of different occasions. I think in general, she will keep things simple and understated, because that's part of her style. And that's what makes her style so appealing.

Meghan has definitely had some style influence over Prince Harry's sartorial choices these days. I do love how they coordinate well with each other.

:previous:Agreed! She looked wonderful. Loved the skirt and top.

Me as well. So would my 31 year old daughter (who also loved the purse and wants one except for the price tag!).

I actually did yesterday, wore a long navy coat, black boots and a black turtleneck. Thought I was quite boring, but now I feel great since apparently I was very celebrity:rofl:.

The worst thing of the lot is knowing that her boots crumpled around the ankles because of her slim legs! She may be petite but wow I certainly didn't recognise the boots in the advertisement as the boots she wore.

Abbigail 12-01-2017 07:26 PM

I'm pretty sure the "crumpled" boots were a style choice and I liked how they looked myself.

QFT, this is a simple outfit that has nothing wrong with it. Respectful and more reserved than I expected.
Nothing Meghan has worn is like Diana, I wish people would stop making connections that aren't there with that woman.

Agreed. The heel was perfect too - very current and fresh. Those boots look like a black suede version of the YSL silver boots - are they?

Honestly I loved her whole look. It was perfect, imo. I especially love seeing that she recycles her clothes - she wore that same coat a year ago. It's refreshing that she hasn't seem to run out to buy a whole new wardrobe. She's wearing the clothes she already has.

I love her style and am excited because it jibes so well with my own... classic but with a modern edge. I sometimes go more edgy, but good enough, lol.

This is gonna be awesome following her fashion over the years...

Pranter 12-01-2017 08:35 PM

My guess is she will add pieces as needed for formal events ...and slowly add in 'working' clothes to mix in with her current 'working' type wardrobe.

Every thing she wore is perfect except for the *Boots*, they ruined the outfit for me. That skirt is to die for, how feminine, sexy and yet very appropriate. And the top turtle neck is just fine for it matched the thin belt which I loved. She did not go wrong on this outfit, would wear it to work in a law office any day of the week. She seems to love long straight hair, and at times it is unruly as it flies away, heck my hair flies away when the wind blows so that is really no big deal. Us women that love long hair have that problem, no need to chop it off all because of the wind...anyhow I see this as a positive step for her and that is to be expected from her. Meghan knows exactly what she is doing here...

Zaira 12-01-2017 11:19 PM

The outfit looks good in motion, but falls flat in some standing still pictures. I loved all the individual parts of it. I think maybe if she was taller it would have come together better. However, the overall "effect" was I think great. It was very powerful in movement and the skirt is lovely. It has such graceful motion to it.

Meghan is stunning. She is one of the most photogenic people I have seen. I even didn't mind her hair down and normally I think it looks messy. But I do think this look would have been much more polished with an updo.

Pranter 12-01-2017 11:21 PM

I honestly cannot see why the boots are an issue. Too cold for heels really and flats wouldn't of looked very good with the outfit. Great to pair with the same color shirt and belt.

The look of the boot went with the rest of the outfit.

I though her outfit was spot on, nothing making overt statements, just Meghan being herself. And on that note, I am going to second what Xenia has said regarding the tendency to bring Diana into the discussion. Harry is not marrying a facsimile of his mother any more than William did.

Meghan is wearing an engagement ring with a small nod to Diana, that is all. Meghan is her own woman and just because she wore a coat and boots, something I am sure Diana had worn on innumerable occasions does not make it a "Dianaesque" ensemble.

Missjersey 12-02-2017 12:08 AM

I said this earlier, I liked her from head to toe. She looked perfect for the occasion imo

Countessmeout 12-02-2017 01:42 AM

I am in love with the coat. Nice fitted, great look on her. :flowers:

Wasn't a huge fan of skirt at first, kind of reminded me of something Sophie would wear, but it has grown on me. Matched with the great coat, and the black turtleneck, it was a nice fresh look.

No need for 'matchy matchy' as some suggested. If anything is dated it would be that. She chose a nice blend of neutrals which work well together. And the purple purse being a pop of color against them.

Not always a purse person but I love the purse. :smile:

Admit I even like the boots. Nice change from the standard royal boot.

She may be born in California but she has spent the past seven years in Canada. And while Toronto may not be the coldest part of Canada ever, temperature wise it is very much in common with the UK. Meghan will know as well as any what footwear is good in what weather. She may not know about walk abouts, but she does know about getting to and fro in Canadian winter.

Same here. :flowers: They suited the length of her skirt. All round loved her ensemble.

bertie5252003 12-02-2017 12:02 PM

I truly cannot stand those skirts ... the rest is lost as the skirt just rules the outfit ... YUK!!!

sm1939 12-02-2017 01:58 PM

I thought she looked great , I loved her coat .... and the skirt looked fab thumbs up for the put fit

Empress Merel 12-02-2017 02:23 PM

I hate the skirt she wore and I think the coat could have done with a few inches shorter. And I also dislike the boots but that is a personal preference. She still wears the sh.t out of her outfit, just like Mxima does, even though their personal styles couldn't be more different if you tried.

4Pam 12-03-2017 12:56 AM

Love the outfit! I thought she looked great! Can't wait to see her wedding dress!!!
