Meghan Markle has been a style icon for a decade. From playing Rachel Zane in Suits to being one of the most famous royals in the world, the now Duchess has forever been a fashionista. However, just like everyone, Meghan has had her fashion mishaps, according to a stylist.
Melissa gave Express.co.uk an overview of Meghan’s style and how she could use her proportions to her advantage.
She began: “Meghan likes to look good and as someone in the public eye it’s essential that she does. I’ve read many times that she’s proud that she doesn’t use a stylist but, as a professional, I’d say it might be time for her to hire one.
“Meghan often dresses well – in that she usually chooses stylish clothes – but I’ve said in the past that she doesn’t pay enough attention to the details and therefore her look often falls shy of perfect.”
Melissa noted Meghan’s “good figure” and suggested like many women, there were some “areas which require balancing” with certain styles of clothes.
The expert claimed Meghan has a “short upper torso (from nape to waist)” with not “much natural waist curve” and suggested she could “lengthen her torso and cinch in her waist” with the right clothes.
“She has broad shoulders and long limbs – definitely good points!” Melissa added. She also said Meghan had “ultra slim calves” and suggested she avoid “chunky shoes and skirts, dress and coats with too much volume in the hem as these could mean that her legs will look too skinny”.
The expert also spoke to Express.co.uk about a fashion faux pas that resulted in Meghan’s outfit looking “horrible”.
On July 11, 2018 Meghan stepped out in Dublin alongside Prince Harry and met with President Michael Higgins and his wife Sabina Coyne.
For this occasion she opted to wear the Roland Mouret Grey ‘Clover’ Dress. According to Meghan’s Fashion, this number cost $2,085 (around £1,649).
In Dublin, Meghan paired her grey dress with some chic accessories, namely a pair of diamond earrings and black suede pointed-toe pumps.
She wore her hair in a chic low-bun, complete with a slick centre parting, and her glam makeup look comprised pink its, a touch of blush and dark eyeliner.
Meghan was spotted wearing a very similar version of the dress in navy at the Cliveden House Hotel the night before her wedding in May 2018. This was the Roland Mouret ‘Barwick’ Dress.
