10 Recommendations From the Stylists of Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle That Are Worth Taking Notes On
Last weekend Meghan Markle and Prince Harry officially tied the knot, which means that the royal family was enriched by another beautiful woman. This girl, with a Hollywood smile, can’t boast the title of princess, but she already has the title of fashion icon which she shares with Kate Middleton herself.
We at Bright Side looked through the most impressive outfits of Meghan Markle and the Duchess of Cambridge and would like to draw your attention to the most important features these ladies are using in their style.
Most women are scared by bright colors in their wardrobes but not Kate. Red is one of the Duchess’s favorite colors that she uses in both her every day and evening attire. Meghan also likes scarlet colors. It’s worth noting that these 2 ladies wear different shades — properly selected tinges make any image stylish.
Suits in different styles
Ladies suits are timeless and Kate’s royal status obligates her to maintain a classic and meticulous style — she has dozens of pant and skirt suits. The princess prefers above-the-knee skirts that complement her image with jackets in a fitted silhouette. Meghan seems to be following in her footsteps.
This style is considered classic in a woman’s wardrobe and British women are very aware of this fact. This universal dress hides the imperfections of the body perfectly, elongates the silhouette, and makes the image feminine. Kate often chooses these dresses for official events, giving preference to neutral colors.
Shades appropriate for the skin tone
Kate Middleton often wears light blue and we all have noticed that this shade goes with her image absolutely perfectly.
Meghan prefers a more neutral color scale for herself in various brownish, ivory, and beige shades.
Monochrome fabrics are perfect for both complex and simple cuts. This tonal way of dressing prevents the image from looking heavy and makes it elegant and sophisticated.
Skinny pants and a white shirt
A white button-down shirt has been a classic item of clothing for a long time. If you want to look stylish and simple, skinny pants or jeans and a men’s style shirt is always a fantastic choice. You can use simple accessories as image enhancers and keep the color of the shirt either blue or white.
Does white make you look fat? Not at all! In modern fashion, a total white look works perfectly, not only for evening attire but for everyday wear as well. To add a little pop to the whole outfit when you are wearing all white, just add one contrasting element.
An elegant coat
The coat is a classic outerwear element that is best worn in the off-season, especially if you’re located at the shore of the Foggy Albion.
A traditional flower print in combination with a light dress is another look loved by royal ladies. It’s simple, elegant, and stylish. By the way, flower prints match any color-types.
A light lip gloss, lipstick in a nude shade, or no lipstick at all is Kate’s preference. The Duchess prefers to enhance her eyes with makeup. Meghan often uses the same method by replacing bright colors with neutral and nude tones. This option is good for daytime business meetings and official evening events.
Bonus: simple brands of clothing in everyday life
When we think about the royal image, only exclusive, luxury, and expensive brands come to our minds. That’s probably how it should be when we are talking about gala events, but in her everyday life Kate Middleton prefers clothes from more common brands like Topshop or Zara.
The day after their wedding, Kate appeared in public in a blue Zara dress that cost $60. In 2016, while visiting the National Park of India, she was wearing pants from the same brand that cost $50. Thanks to this modesty, not only can each of us be inspired by the style of the Duchess but we can also copy it.
