Even before becoming betrothed to Prince Harry, Markle had a heavy history with one beloved suitor–his name was the wool wrap coat. Spotted jetsetting in airports with jeans, beanies and a long coat, Markle was regularly seen dressing down her beloved toppers as well as engineering styles based around her frequent fashion item.
A waterfall coat can be a stunning addition to an otherwise minimal ensemble–Markle often enlists these long duster-style coats to keep warm, offer coverage and make a sophisticated style statement. Whether dressing up a chambray button down, accenting a sheath dress or providing a cloak over cigarette pants and a sweater, these classic coats elogonate the body and can be taken from day to night.
Today, Markle frequently wears earth tone, neutral and navy coats for royal functions and uses this outerwear as an integral part of her ensembles.
Markle gravitates towards wrap style coats typically in camel, beige or winter white. She also doesn’t mind a little piping detail or a large collar. She tends to stick to coats that are midi-length and made of wool, tweed or other heavy material. She prefers brands like J. Crew, Sentaler and Line the Label. In the past, the Duchess of Cambridge has worn a ribbed wrap coat with a shawl collar by Sentaler that looks like a Markle mainstay.
The soon-to-be-wife of Prince Harry will likely continue her celebration of these long coats as she embraces life in London and frequently finds herself dealing with rainy, cloudy and cold English weather.
To get the full ‘Meghan effect’ try and stick with dusty and desert shade coats in long lengths, pair with stylish ballet flats or preferably pointy heels or suede boots. Keep the rest of the look simple and elegant — no busy patterned shirts, no graphic sweaters and no bright colors.
