Meghan Markle’s Flawless Date-Night Outfit Isn’t What You’d Expect

It seems to have been a week for royal risk-taking in the sartorial department! Attending the Endeavor Funds Awards Ceremony in London with fiancé Prince Harry, Meghan surprised onlookers by opting for a sleek menswear ensemble instead of a predictable black-tie gown. While we’re not sure how the Queen felt about the choice, we’re fully on board with her fresh and modern approach to eveningwear. Whether you’re heading out with the girls or going to a romantic dinner, try a sleek suit with sky-high pumps and a smooth blowout.

Meghan Markle is flawlessly rising to the sartorial challenge of being engaged to Prince Harry but long before meeting her Prince, Meghan Markle made a name for herself in the style department. She favors a classic aesthetic with punch. On the red carpet, she veers glamorous, often utilizing metallic and shimmer, and when off-duty, she mostly opts for casual staples like button-down shirts, denim and affordable accessories. Familiar with the spotlight, Meghan is already in line with the royal family and that of her soon-to-be sister-in-law, Kate Middleton, though we expect to see an even more modern and directional approach forthcoming. Here, her best looks of late.

Stepping out in England's dreary winter, she donned a stunning grey coat, coordinated scarf and sleek wide-leg trousers. The warm hue of the coat brightens up simple black separates and stands out against a sea of darker outerwear.
