For those of you who may be living under a rock or just simply disconnect the last few months, His Royal Highness Prince Harry of Wales married American actress Meghan Markle and the wedding was in all it’s glory stunning! Articles posted all around talk about the style, the flora and the couple, but from this big day, there are so many facets to take away from Meghan as she transforms herself from average actress to a total royal boss babe.
Today;s society preaches overdoing everything – be over-the-top, bubbly, accessorized, and slap a ton of beauty on to make yourself perfect, but the Duchess is quite the opposite. Simple colors, little pattern and mixing, statement jewelry versus multiple pieces, and sentimentalism. These are the facets of her wardrobe and look that give her to put-together appeal and unspoken relatedness. There’s nothing unachievable about her look, and it focuses more on who she is and not what she’s wearing.
Whatever features you may posses, flaunting them isn’t always the best strategy. We all know Meghan has quite the slender, petite figure, but you find her often layering and covering in well-tailored dresses and clothing. Whether it’s a curvy figure or a large bottom/bust, just because you have it doesn’t mean you always have to show it off. Wear clothing that flatters you as a person holistically instead of skin-tight skirts and low necklines. I’m not saying prudish is better, but it elevates your level to a classier look.
Meghan’s look when it comes to beauty if understated elegance. For her wedding day, she wore natural colors, and didn’t even pile on a ton of makeup to cover her perfect dusting of freckles on her face. No matter the features you were born with, covering them in pounds of foundation and eyeliner won’t make you seem more approachable or relatable. She looked like a normal bride on her wedding day without any bright lipstick or over-the-top lashes.
Many drawings were circulating and ideas were speculated on what every thought the Duchess would be wearing on her big day based on the history of royal brides, but no one stopped to consider what she wanted. Her modern-simplicity was something people underestimated and assumed she would opt for a lace or jewel adorned gown to fit the royal motif. Her approach to wearing what fit her style was essential and allowed for important pieces, like her borrowed tiara and Diana’s ring, to really pop and cause conversation.
