When Megan Markle stepped out for her first official royal engagement (alongside the Queen) on Tuesday, she did so in flawless princess-to-be style. Her coat-and-beret ensemble drew almost as much attention as the actress and her Prince fiancé did themselves. Her coat, a sharp, classic blazer style overcoat by British dress designer Amanda Wakeley is now on the fashion A-List.
And this is not the first time the royal in waiting has rocked a monochrome cover-all. For their official engagement photos back in December at Kensington Palace, Markle wore an ivory wrap-style by Canadian label Line, officially kicking off a worldwide white coat and wrap style trend.
But this latest coat of choice is the one we’re hunting down. The cinched waist, the propped up collar line and the crisp white shade is perfect not only if we find ourselves at a royal engagement, but for our real life winter events too.
So do you want to dress like a princess and start the cool months in her romantic Snow White style? Well, you can. The actual real-deal coat by Amanda Wakely is available below (be quick, there are not many sizes left!) for around $1600 Australian. However, if that price just made you spit out your cup of English tea, never fear Zara has produced a super-cute, just-as-good-as piece for only $139.95.
The much-talked-about beret Markle wore, who many have speculated is an honorary nod to the late Princess Diana, is also now an instant trend. While Markle (who’s real first name is Rachel! Who knew!? Hello, Suits!) is wearing one by celebrated milliner Stephen Jones, you can get your Royal-Slash-Parisian-Style on with Aussie haymaker label Lack Of Colour here.
The choice is yours…we think Harry wouldn’t notice the difference.
