Whether on vacation in a lazy day striped shirt dress or hitting the beach in Greece in a striped cover-up, Meghan Markle can memorize lines and loves wearing them.
The royal wife loves to look high fashion but still exemplifying casual and modern streetwear sensibilities. One style trend she covets is nautical inspired clothing with a closet full of button down shirts, long sleeves and even crop tops emblazoned with stripes.
A trusty closet staple, stripes have that cozy All-American attitude while still looking chic and comfortable. Meghan loves offsetting her striped looks with neutral separates typically in black or creamy colors like beige or mocha. And she adores stripes in pleated skirts, causal long sleeves and boyfriend-style shirtdress cover-ups.
Markle loves donning stripes for trips to yoga class, as separates in the way of pencil skirts and two-piece suit sets as well as opting for stripes for semi-formal affairs in the form of skirts and bodycon dresses. For her Reitmans clothing line, Markle sparkled in various striped styles. She acted as brand ambassador for the Canadian company in 2015 and modeled off-the-shoulder striped tops along with baggy striped pants and heavily lined t-shirt dresses.
Markle likely favors stripes as they offer a bit of charm to an everyday ensemble without being too fussy. In addition, stripes have a hint of masculinity that contrasts well with feminine pieces like fitted skirts and skinny jeans. Stripes look especially mesmerizing when offset with pops of color like lemon pumps, a green cardigan or a cherry red blazer.
As Mrs. Prince Harry, Markle will likely stick to a refined and neutral color palette with only splashes of print and graphic elements. Still, for a casual day she’s likely to find her beloved baggy boyfriend jeans and striped cotton shirts to be just right for errands or cooking at home.
