How to wear monochrome like Meghan Markle

With her due date edging ever closer, the Duchess of Sussex is showing no signs of slowing down, with a diary full of royal engagements. Nor, for that matter, has she started to compromise comfort over style.

Stepping out for a panel discussion at London’s King’s College on International Women’s Day, the Duchess looked gorgeous in an all monochrome outfit.

Dressing up for the occasion, she teamed a geometric print shift dress with a tailored blazer, simple black courts and a clutch. Adding a little extra glamour to the look, she finished off with a chic up do – not too dissimilar to the one she wore on her wedding day.

Giving fans of her style the chance to steal her look, Meghan’s dress is within our reach and available at Reiss.

Unsurprisingly, since Meghan debuted her new dress, it has completely sold out. But you can sign on Reiss’ website to be notified when more stock becomes available.

As for her blazer and accessories, dupes can be easily found on the high street – no royal budget required.

For a look fit for a Duchess, follow Meghan’s lead and keep your monochrome outfit interesting with a mix of textures and patterns. The added details will add a luxe feel.

We’ve fallen head over heels for Zara’s rhinestone button blazer, both the fancy fastenings and the boucle fabric give it a designer edge for a lot less. Priced at £89.99, it’s a piece worth investing in.

Complete the look with courts from M&S (their wide fit stilettos are super comfortable) whilst H&M have a beautiful black clutch for just £14.99. The detachable strap is an added bonus.

Set to dominate the high street for the foreseeable future, monochrome isn’t going anywhere.

In fact, Meghan is such a fan of this low-key colour combination that she opted for the same palette when she accompanied Prince Harry to the Commonwealth Day service at Westminster Abbey a few days ago.

Maybe she’s using this muted palette to keep Mum about the gender of her impending arrival…
