3 Meghan Markle-Inspired Outfits For Every Type Of Holiday Party
Picking out the perfect holiday party ensemble is no easy feat. Before you pitch every item from your closet onto the floor and revoke your RSVP, look to the top trendsetter of the year to save your sanity. You won't have to worry about being the worst dressed at the party with these impeccably curated Meghan Markle-inspired outfits.
After Prince Harry popped the question in 2017, the former Suits actor became a style icon almost overnight. Everything she wears — from Aritzia to Altuzarra — seems to spark a trend. Her look is elegant yet accessible, bold, and sophisticated all at the same time. This Duchess isn't afraid to bend the rules of royal protocol, either. Her edgy take on timeless trends is what you've always wanted your own style to be.
So, why not gather inspiration from Markle's impeccably curated outfits for your upcoming holidays looks (or for all your looks, for that matter)? Whether you're planning a casual white elephant at home or have a more formal dress code to adhere to, there's sure to be at least a few Duchess-inspired outfits to fit the occasion.
Ahead, three Meghan Markle-inspired outfits for any holiday party, handpicked by The Zoe Report.
Monochromatic Dress + Coat Combo
On Weds. Nov. 21, Markle popped into the Hubb Community Kitchen in London to see firsthand how the funds from her charity cookbook, Together: Our Community Cookbook, are helping Grenfell Tower fire victims. She turned up to Al Manaar in the most perfect holiday party-appropriate combo, too: a long-sleeved dress with a velvet collar and matching topcoat, both by Club Monaco and in the most festive, winter-ready wine hue. She paired the monochromatic pieces with black tights and simple leather booties.

Snag this wardrobe staple while it's 30 percent off. It's a perfect winter-hued mini that you can wear to holiday parties for years to come.
Cop Markle's hint of velvet with this fuzzy wrap dress. It's warm enough to battle the cold with an A-line silhouette that's super on-trend.
Though Meghan wore the now-sold-out Daylina Coat from Club Monaco, this sleek, single-button wool coat is a great substitute.
A more budget-friendly option, this menswear-inspired Zara find will look perfect over your monochromatic black cherry dress.
Button-Up + Leather Pencil Midi
Markle channeled her Suits character, Rachel Zane, during the couple's official visit to Sussex in Oct. She tucked a silky button-up & Other Stories blouse into a leather pencil-fit midi skirt by Hugo Boss. The Duchess' sleek look effortlessly merged menswear with sophisticated femme, sticking with the color of the season: emerald green. This monochromatic ensemble is a fail-proof party look.

The Duchess loves this affordable brand, so snag the exact silk top she wore for under $100 to pair with your leather skirt.
This glossy top is a perfect pick for day and evening looks alike, with an elegant band collar, pleated front detail, and a loose fit.
This faux-leather, paneled midi is almost exactly like Markle's for a mere fraction of the price.
This dark-green midi will without a doubt become a staple in your closet. It features a classic pencil fit like the Duchess' and a back vent for movability.
Turtleneck + Oversized Menswear Blazer
For a more casual get-together, ditch the dresses and opt for an elevated jeans-and-blazer combo instead. Take the casual outfit Markle wore when meeting the Prime Minister of Australia in Oct., for instance. She tucked a sleek black turtleneck into black skinny jeans and amped up the simple look with an oversized white-with-pinstripes blazer by L'Agence and sophisticated pointy-toe pumps — the best way to dress up your favorite pair of jeans.
