Meghan Markle steps out in striking high street dress on International Women’s Day

Meghan Markle

Meghan Markle’s style is highly sought after, so it’s always appreciated when her outfits can be found on the high street.

While she normally favour designer gear, at an event today (Friday 8th March), she wore a rare high-street find.

The Duchess of Sussex wore a dress from popular retailer Reiss, whilst taking part in a panel discussion convened by the Queen’s Commonwealth Trust on International Women’s Day.

The Azzura black and white swirl printed shift dress is incredibly chic, as proved by the ever-stylish Meghan.

This dress has a feel of the 1960s and would be ideal for an evening do. We especially love the high neckline!

Reiss recommends wearing it with a longline coat and heels for a sophisticated look, like the Duchess'.

The black and white number is only available in size 4 online with certain sizes selling out on Reiss' website just hours after Meghan was spotted wearing the dress, so we can only hope more sizes will be released in the future!

The dress from Reiss costs £185 and you can buy it from here.
