A royal baby will always bring tons of media attention, but perhaps what we should really be paying attention to is the glamorous way Meghan Markle has stayed true to her style all throughout her pregnancy.
Ever since Meghan Markle’s relationship with Prince Harry was announced, the whole world has gone crazy trying to learn as much as possible about the actress-turned-duchess, including everything about her elegant and fashion-forward style. Even her pregnancy hasn't been an obstacle to her trendsetting ways. In fact, you could say she's even upped her fashion game in the last few months, giving us some of the most gorgeous and iconic pregnancy outfits of all time. So, if you want to learn how to be a pregnant fashionista like Meghan and look fabulous every step of the way, here are some royal lessons you should follow.
Don’t be afraid of color
Meghan has a very particular signature style that’s she’s embraced all throughout her pregnancy. Now, though she’s more of a neutral color kind of woman, she loves taking some risks once in a while (remember that stunning yellow dress?), and these past few months haven't been the exception. Perhaps the boldest look she's worn in her pregnancy is the purple dress she wore with a red coat, which many people are sure she donned to pay homage to her late mother-in-law.
Patterns can make you look fresh and youthful
We don’t often get to see that many patterns in royal fashion, but Meghan has managed to give us some really nice ones, florals mostly. She’s been quite busy in the past few months, going on tours all over the world, and these designs have definitely helped her project a more accessible image.
Find your signature color
There’s no doubt we feel more confident when we’re wearing something we know suits us perfectly. Since her very first appearances as a royal, Meghan has been consistent with her style and color preferences, and there’s no doubt that cream, white, and beige are her ultimate favorites and look very flattering on her.
Keep it casual
Though we’re used to seeing royals looking super sophisticated, Meghan is one of the few who doesn’t really mind making public appearances in more casual looks. A pair of jeans and a comfy sweater can make you look wonderful and modern.
Shine bright like a royal
Of course, no matter how relaxed you and your style are, sometimes we have to bring out the glam, and as Meghan has shown us, black will always be synonymous with sophistication. Now, as you can see, she’s everything but boring, and she always tries to bring something extra to her looks. Sequins? Why not! A sexy, one shoulder dress? Do it!
Coats are a girl's best friend
One of her signature looks, besides light colors, is rounding up her outfit with a statement coat. If the weather isn’t cold enough to warrant wearing a coat, you can always go for a light blazer or a trench. Long jackets, coats, and blazers can elongate your figure and make you look taller when paired with the right pieces, so it’s always good to bear that in mind.
Break the rules once in a while
Meghan has been compared to Lady Diana, the rebellious people's princess, mainly because she doesn’t mind breaking the protocol from time to time. She’s been seen wearing short dresses without tights (a big no-no for female royals), going for more casual, stylish looks, and even wearing statement pieces that we wouldn't normally see on royals. So, go rogue and bring your A-game with unusual styles.
So, now you know: being confident and staying true to yourself, even during your pregnancy, are the key elements and fashion lessons you should learn from Meghan to rock pregnancy style and shine as bright as a crown jewel.
