It seems that the Duchess of Sussex has officially finished her maternity leave and is back to making public appearances. Meghan Markle has been spotted at Wimbledon, the London premiere of The Lion King, and Trooping the Color. I will say through the entire Resort 2020 season I just kept seeing looks for Meghan to wear while out on her official duties. I basically started this list a couple of weeks ago with my Resort 2020 list where I picked an absolutely amazing Proenza Schouler coat. The five looks below are just some of the favorites I would love to see the Duchess of Sussex bring to life in the coming months. Givenchy: How could I not kick the list off with Meghan’s go to designer. The royal women have stuck by the creators of their wedding gowns and Meghan has worn a lot of Givenchy since her wedding last year. I was taken with the idea of Meghan giving military sharpness wearing this black Givenchy Resort 2020 ensemble which features a coat with red trimmed pockets and gold buttons paired with a sleeveless sheath dress with a red high collar. It is much more of a sharp style than we are used to seeing from Meghan and I honestly believe that she would shut this look down. I would want to see Clare Waight Keller make sure that the hems of the coat and the dress match. A sleek low bun, a black Phillip Treacy sculpted veiled hat, defined eyes, nude lips, a pair of black Givenchy ‘Show’ eel leather pointed toe pumps, and a black Givenchy ‘GV’ leather clutch with gold hardware all would finish this look perfectly. ADEAM: Tokyo born, New York raised designer Hanako Madea’s label ADEAM has been a major rising star when it comes to the international fashion scene. Her collections, shown in NYC, have been loved by the fashionista set and I definitely could see Meghan being drawn to the label. Unlike Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, Meghan has embraced the world of elite and emerging fashion designers that aren’t just based in London. This grey tweed ADEAM Resort 2020 sleeveless double breasted coat dress which features an asymmetrical silk scarf style lapel. I think this look with a loose updo, defined eyes, rose pink lips, and a pair of grey glitter Aquazzura ‘Forever’ cutout design pointed toe pumps would be an absolutely chic look for Meghan to wear heading into the fall season.
Burberry: When it comes to British fashion I don’t know if there is a more iconic brand other than Burberry. I have been loving what Riccardo Tisci has done at the label since he took the reigns over almost a year ago and I am definitely wanting to see Meghan wearing the brand in the future. I would love to see her attend one of the more cocktail attire suited events wearing this black Burberry Resort 2020 cape dress which features chic crystal embellishments and a belted waist. It is definitely not your average royal cocktail dress, but I Meghan isn’t your average royal. I believe that it would be the chic moment I am picturing in my mind paired with a loose chignon, defined eyes, burgundy lips, a black crystal embellished Jimmy Choo ‘J Box’ clutch, and a pair of black Burberry ‘The Patent Leather D-Ring’ pointed toe pumps. Elie Saab: I have to say that when I picked this emerald green Elie Saab Resort 2020 I thought it was a long shot. We don’t usually see the British royals wearing his designs, but Catherine just wore a dress from the designer for Ascot and I am now just waiting for Meghan to wear the brand. This look which features a draped long puffy sleeve blouse with a peter pan color and a chic wrap style skirt with a tie detail is super chic and would be perfect for one of the more smart business style events that Meghan is bound to attend. Now the skirt is definitely going to have to be modified for Meghan so it will be long enough to fit royal protocol and if she paired it with an emerald green Mark Cross ‘Grace’ small lizard skin top handle box bag, easy waves, defined eyes, antique rose pink lips, and a pair of green Gianvito Rossi suede pointed toe pumps I know that my heart and soul would soar.
Jason Wu: Finishing out the list is a look from a designer that Meghan has actually just worn, Jason Wu. She wore the American designer for the London premiere of The Lion King. It was a chic and simple dress that is perfect for the relatively new mom to bring to the red carpet. I definitely think that Jason Wu is the perfect choice for Meghan as he just creates uber feminine and elegant dresses. I definitely can picture Megan wearing this black ruched chiffon Jason Wu Resort 2020 cap sleeve cocktail dress which features cutout details on the neckline and beaded detail. It definitely is a chic cocktail moment that could easily become a glamorous gown moment for Meghan to bring to life for a more formal occasion. A sleek updo, defined eyes, red lips, an absolutely fantastic black velvet Jimmy Choo ‘Cloud’ white and green crystal embellished clutch, a pair of black satin Aquazzura ‘Portrait of a Lady’ pointed toe crystal embellished slingback pumps (which she wore for the premiere of The Lion King with her Jason Wu dress), and a pair of chic Nikos Koulis ‘Oui’ collection white gold earrings with emeralds, white diamonds, and black enamel would make this an absolutely glamorous moment for Meghan to bring to life.
Which of these looks do you think that Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex should add to her royal wardrobe.
