Sticking to the Royal dress code (no short hemlines or flat sandals), comes with Meghan Markle’s newfound role as the Duchess of Sussex. But, that doesn’t mean that Markle doesn’t look for ways to make seasonal trends work for her. The Duchess stepped out at Ascot, a British horse race, taking a warm-weather white dress and making it feel more formal with one quick trick.
Meghan arrived wearing a button-down dress from Givenchy, the same design house behind her wedding dress (and recent look while out with the queen). While it’s more custom to style such a dress with colorful sandals or a raffia bag, Meghan went for all black accessories: black pumps, a belt, and a small black clutch, finishing with a black and white hat. The effect works for daytime, but feels formal enough for a Royal outing, or a fancier evening event. Read on for a look at Meghan’s ensemble, and to shop pieces to help you try the look out too.
