While the Duchess of Sussex adapts to life in quiet Canada, no doubt she will rely on some her Toronto style standbys to incorporate into her wardrobe. Though Vancouver Island is very scenic, the rugged terrain could mean the mom of one is more dependent on some of her chunky winter coats, cozy shearling slippers and hefty handbags for braving the cooler temperatures and wet weather. The remote region of British Columbia probably won’t necessitate too many clutch moments or slinky stiletto outings. Plus, on the Wild Pacific trails–it might seem odd to be sporting a feathered fascinator.
Here are Meghan Markle’s Best Casual Canadian Fashion Outfits to Wear on Vancouver Island:
- Snowy Streetstyle
Smythe Flak Jacket with Faux Fur Collar + Sarah Flint Booties + Hat Attack Beanie
A definite must for braving the snowstorms of the Canadian coastline, Meghan’s utilitarian Italian-tweed jacket boasts a roomy shape and oversized flap pockets–perfect for storing Archie’s tiny toys and wipes. The duchess was last photographed in this faux fur collar jacket doing some shopping with pal Jessica Mulroney in 2016. Clearly, the royal loves a faux fur accented jacket as she was just spotted boarding a seaplane in her Barbour Parka with a similar hood trim.
2. Urban Trendsetter
Album di Famiglia Black Lina Corto Puffy Coat (similar) + Kamik Sienna Boots + Knit Pom Beanie
Meghan could rock this entire ensemble while hiking the shoreline on her Vancouver Island hideaway with Prince Harry. Ideal for dog walking or city shopping, this puffy Italian coat is a wintery weather must have and pairs perfectly with skinny denim and duck boots.
3. Fitness Fashionista
J.Crew Field Mechanic Jacket + Mulberry Zipped Bayswater + Reebok Classic Gum Sneakers
Meghan would be remiss not recycle this daytime ensemble perfect for drugstore runs and mid-day jaunts on her island paradise with son Archie and husband Harry. This versatile J.Crew jacket is so beloved by the passionate yogi that she’s been spotted in the style on at least seven occasions including in Morocco on tour.
4. Girl About Town
Barbour Gustnado Waterproof Jacket (similar) + J.Crew Striped Boatneck T-Shirt + Under Armour Coldgear Leggings + Goyard St. Louis PM Tote + Mykita Priscilla Sunglasses (similar) + J. Crew Cece Suede Ballet Flats (similar) + B Mat
Dressed in a chic nautical inspired ensemble, the former actress was ready to brave Canada’s rainstorms in her Barbour waterproof jacket. This look would be ideal for Meghan’s daytime mom duties and of course, playing with her puppies on the couple’s plush property or even just sightseeing on long walks with Harry. This casual but understated look is perfect for island outings and errand or shopping trips.
