These days it seems that nobody can get enough of Meghan Markle. The Duchess of Sussex always looks perfect from head to toe.
Each time Duchess Meghan disembarks, her jaws drop around the world with outfits that will definitely please her perfectly. Whenever the Duke and Duchess of Sussex appear, we know that we can always rely on the Duchess wearing something spectacular.
So, does Markle put together her own look or does she have a stylist as one of the many benefits of a Duchess?
Meghan Markle's Style Before She Becomes Queen
In recent years, the life of Duchess Meghan has almost certainly changed drastically. She had to retire from her acting career to marry Prince Harry, and she also had to pack her bags and move across the pond to England to begin her new life as a queen.
As if that was not enough, Markle now has to abide by the royal rules and protocols when it comes to what she wears. Before her time as Duchess, Markle's style was a little different than today.
According to Harper's Bazaar, the actress, prior to marrying Prince Harry, was known to wear dresses that were slightly above the knee, and occasionally a cropped outfit. She was a big fan of jeans and on more than one occasion, Markle did not hesitate to wear leather trousers for events or appearances.
The "Markle effect" is very real
Now that Markle is a member of the royal family, her style has a big impact on the world. Everything she wears seems to sell out pretty quickly, sometimes within hours or minutes. Fashion designers just love the Duchess wearing one of her pieces, and according to The Guardian, this can affect a brand's sales more than she could ever have imagined.
What is the style of Duchess Meghan now when she is a member of the royal family? Town & Country reports that she is a big fan of blazers, button-down shirts and long skirts. The Duchess of Sussex has also been seen several times in elegant trench coats, for example when she and Prince Harry introduced Baby Archie two days after his birth.
We've seen the Duchess of Sussex in dresses with transparent sleeves, as well as the occasionally daring look, like a jumpsuit or a denim dress with a belt. One thing is for sure: No matter what Markle chooses, she always looks gorgeous.
Markle recently debuted her fashion line Smart Works, a charitable collection of women's workwear. This is just another way the Duchess has managed to reach people who need them, as the fashion line targets women who are unemployed and need to prepare for interviews.
Does Meghan Markle have a stylist as Duchess?
Markle always seems to make the perfect fashion choice – does she choose her own clothes when dressing for royal events, or does anyone help her put together the perfect look?
Many fans will be surprised to learn that Duchess Meghan, according to Elle, is actually a stylist in her own right! Markle has an eye for what looks good and she always hits the spot when she chooses her clothes.
Another thing about the casual, assignable duchess is that she also makes herself a make-up. Aside from her wedding-day look, Duchess Meghan is known to take care of things herself. While others have sought inspiration for her style, Markle deserves credit for how great she looks every time we see her.
