Here's What Meghan Markle Was Wearing When The Palace Announced Her Pregnancy
There's a baby on the way for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Kensington Palace has announced that Meghan Markle is pregnant with her first child with husband Prince Harry, and Markle stepped out in an all-black look on Oct. 15, the same day the exciting news was shared.
Royal fans and fashion fans alike will be eagerly waiting to see the evolution of Markle's pregnancy style as she heads towards the baby's arrival next spring. Known for mixing designer pieces with high-street brands (she recently wore a blouse from & Other Stories for under $100), Markle went monochromatic and minimal while out with husband and father-to-be, Prince Harry. Wearing black head-to-toe, Markle opted for a black topper coat with brown lapels over her turtleneck, and paired it with skinny jeans and classic pumps for a sleek look that you can easily recreate.
Channel the Duchess by picking up classic pieces such as this wool cacoon coat from Harris Wharf London for $535. It's inherently timeless and will polish off any look. Layer the coat over a cozy black turtleneck knit, like this cashmere style for under $200, and pair it with black jeans from one of Markle's favorite denim lines in a similar skinny silhouette to achieve the soon-to-be mom's maternity style. Don't forget to add a pair of polished pumps (a Markle wardrobe essential) to complete the outfit.
The Duchess may turn to her sister-in-law and mother of three, Kate Middleton during this time for outfit inspiration. Middleton made knee-length coats and classic, comfortable heels style staples during her three pregnancies; however, Markle has been known to add a twist to the traditional royal fashions, so she may bring more stylish moments to her maternity wardrobe.
Either way, the world will be watching for every outfit Markle dons in the upcoming months. Scroll to start shopping some similar pieces from this look, which is sure to be the first of what will be many more chic outfits from the Duchess.
