The (Now Famous) Navy Givenchy Jacket

OCTOBER 12, 2018

It was the outfit that ignited rumors of a hidden baby bump, and it was a knockout. While attending Princess Eugenie's wedding at St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle, The Duchess of Sussex stunned in a navy coat by Givenchy, Meghan Markle’s royal wedding designer of choice. She tied the monochromatic look together with Manolo Blahnik BB Pumps and an embellished Noel Stewart chapeau. But despite all the glam details, nothing could distract from her pregnancy glow.

White Sheath Dress by Karen Gee

October 16, 2018

The Duchess of Sussex debuted her baby bump in an angelic white sheath dress by Australian designer Karen Gee, which just so happens to be dubbed the “blessed” dress. Markle’s teeny tiny baby bump wasn’t the only accessory worth noting while she toured Sydney, though: Along with Stuart Weitzman’s “Legend” Pumps, Markle paid tribute to the late Princess Diana by donning her diamond butterfly earrings — a thoughtful, heartwarming sentiment in light of the special news.

Green Tea-Length Dress by Brandon Maxwell

October 16, 2018

A whirlwind royal press tour demands effortless looks that can go easily from day to night, and this brilliant olive green Brandon Maxwell design fit the bill. Every detail of this poplin dress had us believing it was made for the royal, from the cinched waist and cape-effect back to the impressive pleating. She coupled it with a pair of nude Dior pumps to let the ensemble speak for itself which we highly appreciate.

Serena William's Plaid "Boss" Blazer

October 17, 2018

This casual look is equal parts American girl-next-door and royal Duchess, and we can't get enough. Markle sported her dear friend Serena William’s plaid “boss” blazer paired with a stunningly white and perfectly quaffed button down by Maison Kitsune. Add a pair of black skinny jeans by Australian brand Outland, and some black J. Crew booties, and we are obsessed. (Note the subtleness of her Adina Reyter diamond earrings, too!)

Fitted Dion Lee Blue Dress 

October 18, 2018

The Duchess has proven she knows her way around a jewel-toned ensemble— and this one gave us a good glimpse of her growing bump! She paired this impressive Dion Lee blue dress with her reliable navy Manolo Blahnik BB Pumps and a leather Sylvie mini chain bag by Gucci. Markle is living proof of the old adage: If something ain’t broke, don’t fix it

Polished Black Club Monaco Dress

October 18, 2018

Markle is the poster child of affordable chic in this polished black Club Monaco dress and matching flats by Rothys. Add her go-to Martin Grant trench coat to stay warm, this becomes a "wow" fashion moment in our opinion—if discount shopping on a royal budget isn't relatable enough, she's also not opposed to outfit repeating!

Striped Martin Grant Maxi Dress

October 19, 2018

Another day, another Martin Grant design for us to fall in love with. While visiting Bondi Beach in Sydney, Markle turned up the vacation vibes in a pleated, striped maxi dress by (you guessed it) Martin Grant. The Duchess' very affordable Castaner espadrilles were almost as beachy as the pink floral lei (not pictured) gifted to her by locals that afternoon.

Two-Toned Roksanda Midi-Dress

October 19, 2018

The Duchess was the essence of grace in a flattering two-toned Roksanda “Athena” midi-dress while visiting Macarthur Girls High School in Sydney. The unique pop of periwinkle made for a fun take on Markle’s love for navy A-line dresses. Of course, she can’t seem to go out without these dependable Stuart Weitzman pumps—our guess is that they're broken in enough for long days of standing.

Black A-Line Dress by Emilia Wickstead

October 20, 2018

Looking like a real-life princess, Markle donned a breathtaking black Emilia Wickstead A-line dress while honoring Sydney’s ANZAC Memorial in Hyde Park. The fit-and-flare dress is reminiscent of the 40s with contrasting buttons and a mock-neck collar, and her accessories — an embellished hat by Philip Treacy, Givenchy clutch, and Tabitha Simmons sling-backs — are almost as impressive as Harry in uniform.

Tortoiseshell Illesteva Palm Beach Sunglasses

October 20, 2018

Rolling up to the 2018 Invictus Games via yacht, Markle’s look was almost as sexy as the event. The Duchess topped a black button-down shirt and her black “Looker” jeans by Mother Denim with a fresh white structured Altuzarra blazer. The crowning outfit jewels? Her bow-detailed Tabitha Simmons pumps and funky yellow tortoiseshell frames by Illesteva Palm Beach.

Similar to her 2018 Invictus Games vibe, the Duchess rocked black jeans with a black turtleneck underneath a white double-breasted pinstripe blazer from L’Agence while attending a reception with the Australian Prime Minister. She completed the casual look with Aquazzura Deneuve bow pumps, Adina Reyter earrings, and an Orton black-and-white crossbody bag.

Thigh-High Slit Reformation Dress

October 22, 2018

During a break from their royal commitments, Markle got back to her beachy fashion roots to explore Fraser Island in a boho-chic Reformation dress with a thigh-high slit. The relaxed linen design's detachable belt covered her growing bump and Markle chose tie-up leather sandals by Sarah Flint for strolling the boardwalk on their day off. She also traded her tortoiseshell frames for these Aubrey Hepburn-esque Karen Walker sunglasses.

At a state dinner hosted by the Fiji's president, Markle turned heads in a flawless blue Safiyaa Ginkgo cape gown. The dress was a strategic choice, the color meant to pay tribute to the Fijian national flag, and her striking diamond earrings were rumored to be borrowed from the Queen herself.

Figue Ruffle Wrap Dress

October 24, 20108

The Duchess went bold but casual in a this wrap dress by Figue that featured an asymmetrical ruffle hem and pom-pom embellishments. To match the dresses bohemian flair, Markle's Castaner espadrilles was a no-brainer along with her subtle Karen Walker earrings, and Shaun Leane bracelet.

Markle finished off her time in Fiji with her baby bump on full display in a timeless emerald Jason Wu crepe sheath dress.

October 25, 2018

So soon after her grand nuptials, the Duchess of Sussex is back in bridal wear—this time in a custom-made Theia gown to accommodate her baby bump for the King and Queen of Tonga’s dinner. She was the epitome of elegance in the dreamy ivory silk crepe ensemble with jeweled-trim, flanged shoulders and a subtly sexy side slit. She accessorized with her Aquazzura bow pumps, a matching Givenchy satin clutch, Birks snowflake earrings, and Princess Diana’s head-turning aquamarine ring. Talk about a show-stopping moment.

Long Sleeve, Button Down Martin Grant Dress

October 26, 2018

You probably guessed that this long sleeve, A-line dress is a Martin Grant—and you’re right. Markle is consistently favoring the designer and we can see why; she always shines in army green. Not to mention the cotton dress is perfect for a conservative vibe with its button-down silhouette, mandarin collar, circle skirt, and accented waist. Her simple Bibliotheque Prada bag and Maison Birks earrings are the perfect complement to the busier look.

Blue Veronica Beard Cary With Double Slits

October 26, 2018

Markle’s second long sleeve, button down, synched waist dress of the day was by designer Veronica Beard Cary. The functional blue look featured double slits, fun pockets, and a collar. We are obsessed with the Duchess' affordable light blue suede shoes from Banana Republic and applaud her choice to let the colors do the talking by keeping accessories to a minimum.

Seagull Tulle Oscar De La Renta Gown

October 26, 2018

 A pro at multiple outfit changes a day, Markle presented the award for Young Conservationist of The Year at The 2018 Australian Geographic Society Gala Awards in a whimsical Oscar de la Renta gown. The white tulle creation featured a collage of laser-cut seagulls from her neckline to the bottom of her tea-length tutu that left her Aquazzura bow pumps on full display.

Romantic Hugo Boss Ensemble

October 28, 2018

Markle’s baby bump was under cover in this remarkably romantic burgundy Hugo Boss dress as she and the Duke of Sussex departed from Sydney airport for New Zealand. The slim-fit midi dress was fit with a turtleneck, short sleeves, a belted waist, and a side slit and paired beautifully with Aquazzura pumps (check out the fun buckle detailing) in peach suede and a Cuyana mini-chain saddle bag.

Timeless Karen Walker Trench Coat

October 28, 2018

We are obsessed with this timeless, classic-cut Karen Walker Banks trench coat moment the Duchess sported over one very (even for commoners) affordable ASOS’s maternity mini dress. She stepped away from her love of monochrome to rock Sarah Flint “Jay” pumps with a funky tortoise heel. With all this greatness happening in one look, we can’t forget to give credit to her spectacular Birks Muse citrine and diamond drop earrings—stunning.

Stuart Weitzman Lace-Up Boots

October 29, 2018

We will defiantly be recreating this casual vibe Markle donned while visiting the Maranui café in Wellington where she took on the topic of mental health with young New Zealand locals. The Duchess traded in her Karen Walker Banks coat for a more predictable, yet gorgeous, green Club Monaco trench coat with oversized lapels and adjustable ties. Underneath the coat, Markle rocked an all-black uniform courtesy of a Jac and Jack turtleneck sweater, Outland “Harriet” jeans, and the star of the show, Stuart Weitzman Veruka lace-up booties.

Multi-Dimensional Givenchy Bespoke Pleated Skirt

October 31, 2018

The buzz over Markle's navy sweater, midi skirt combo made several major headlines—especially her multi-dimensional Givenchy Bespoke pleated skirt. Her crewneck sweater was also Givenchy, which she wore with her beloved blue Manolo Blahnik BB pumps. The crowd made it clear they were sad to see the Duchess exiting New Zealand as they pleasantly fawned over her during a meet-and-greet moment.

Sequin Safiyaa Top

November 19, 2018

Baby bump alert! Markle showed off her maternity bod in a delicately detailed Malaya Strapless Safiyaa top which she creatively paired with a black Safiyaa fishtail skirt. The black and white sequin bustier was converted into a halter top with an asymmetric overlay peplum—the Duchess also added a black belt to accent her tiny waist. For her finishing touches, Markle added even more glitz and glam with Birks snowstorm earrings, and a dazzling glitter box clutch.
