The Duchess of Sussex knows the power of an alluring dress — from that glorious one shoulder velvet Givenchy gown to her sequin dark blue bateau evening dress from Roland Mouret — the duchess never fails to bring the heat with her haute couture. And while most royals shy away from the notice-me styles glimmering from the showrooms of luxurious design houses — Meghan is not one to turn down a little razzle dazzle in favor of conformity or conservative clothing commandments. In fact, most of her trendy styles have gone against the grain — whether it’s a leg baring tuxedo mini or an engagement ballgown with a sheer bodice covered in gold feathers — Meghan sticks to the styles that she covets no matter the sartorial scrutiny.

And what can we learn from Meghan’s royal rulebook for daring dressing? It turns out we can take more than a few style lessons from this trailblazer and apply them to plenty of ordinary social situations like what do we wear to that summer wedding or those island destination nuptials.
