How the 'dressing gown coat' became Meghan Markle's signature winter silhouette
Every member of the royal family who has ever shown desire to be considered a style plate has owned a personal series of fashion signatures - the Duchess of Cambridge is synonymous with nude stilettos and Alexander McQueen, for example, while the Queen has her Launer London handbags, technicolour skirt suits and silk headscarves at Balmoral.
Establishing a level of consistency in her wardrobe is something Meghan Markle is now also clearly keen to do - in her old life it was fine to flit between old favourite red carpet designers and up-and-coming names, but now there will be a strategy in place to ensure that she uses her platform to boost a balance of home and away brands, look modern yet timeless, juggle thriftiness and glamour, and all manner of other considerations that she didnât previously need to think about when she was simply âgetting dressedâ.
Arr iving in Edinburgh today with her fiancÃ© Prince Harry, Markle made efforts to cement the first pillars of her own royal fashion repertoire, wearing British brands as she visited the cityâs castle. As well as a commitment to Strathberry (the Edinburgh-based handbag brand was relatively under the radar until she carried one of their Tri-Colour Totes in December) todayâs look also cemented a favourite silhouette.Source: Google News
