The Duchess of Sussex is known to break away from long-held royal fashion rules, donning one protocol-bending outfit after another. And now, it seems she's also here to debunk age-old style myths. Meghan Markle's white floral dress is proof that the ethereal print does, in fact, have a place in one's winter wardrobe. One look at the Duchess' frock, and you'll be inspired to rock floral print not just in the spring and summer, but in the in the cold-weather months, too.
On Dec. 18, the Duchess of Sussex was photographed in West London during a visit to the Brinsworth House, a residential nursing and care home run by the Royal Variety Charity. For the outing, Markle, who is known to wear dark, solid-colored pieces more than anything else, strayed away from her signature color palette, this time opting for a rather unexpected, but nonetheless welcomed, floral patterned piece.
The Duchess' frock hails from up-and-coming brand, Brock Collection, a dress-focused label that's known for its romantic floral prints and elegant draping techniques. Markle's dress, specifically, features a gray, blossoming pattern, cap sleeves, front-slit detailing, and an on-trend square neckline. The best part, though? You can still scoop up the exact, royalty-approved frock right now — but you better act fast, because it's bound to sell out.
To combat the chill London temperature, Markle wore her Brock Collection dress with a gray, maxi-length wool coat by Soia & Kyo (that's also still in stock). She topped off her look with a pair of beige, pointy toe pumps by Aquazzura, a rose-colored satin clutch, and flower petal-inspired diamond earrings for an outfit that was pure perfection.
This season, make like Markle and work a white, floral-printed dress into your outfit lineup. One thing to keep in mind? Don't forget to add a few cozy top layers to make it more cold-weather appropriate. Ahead, shop The Zoe Report's roundup of romantic white-floral flocks inspired by the Duchess' pick.
