You may have noticed that Meghan Markle, now the Duchess of Sussex, has been adopting a neutral wardrobe lately. Since walking down the aisle in a Givenchy dress on May 19, Markle has been seen in creams and eggshell and a bunch of other bland tones. What gives?
According to one fashion commentator, the color is a ‘show of respect’ for the Queen. Yes, the Queen, known for her bright neon outfits.
The Daily Mail reports:
The Duchess of Sussex opted for a ‘regal’ monochrome number as she joined the Queen for their first official joint engagement in Cheshire on Thursday, proving herself an ‘exemplary royal’ according to Lucas Armitage.
The custom-designed number, which fell to just below the knee, featured a thin belted waist and was paired with a sensible black clutch and pumps – and sheer tights.
Armitage told MailOnline FEMAIL that “Meghan has opted for a neutral color once again. I feel this is a clever styling tactic as it will always work with the Queen’s look; she is known and applauded for her use of bright fun colors.”
So there you have it. While the tones may be neutral in color, the clothes are still figure hugging, modern and chic, just like the Markle we’ve come to know and love.
