Things you don’t hear a lot in fashion trends at the moment: preppy, pretty, classic.

Until now.

Some powerful Markle Sparkle has been sprinkled over style-most-wanted and from nowhere Americana classic has shot to the top.

The two styles breaking Google at the moment? The blue and white striped Ralph Lauren shirt Markle wore to Wimbeldon on Saturday and the pale pink sleeveless trench by Canadian designer Nonie she wore to the Nelson Mandela Centenary Exhibition in London yesterday.
