Because Suits suits...
When Suits actress Meghan Markle marries Prince Harry this spring, she’s going to find herself on plenty of prestigious guest lists. From formal events at the palace to charity engagements, she’ll need a fresh look for every occasion. As is the case with the Duchess of Cambridge, we’re sure there’ll be a massive amount of public interest in what Markle wears. In anticipation of all the fashion fun, we reimagined the actress’ Suits style for royal occasions.
Garden party chic
One thinks a floral blouse like this silk-charmeuse top by Giambattista Valli would be quite apt for the annual garden party at Buckingham Palace.
Everyone loves to rush out, and sell out, whichever winter coat Kate shrugs on when the colder climes roll in. How about something similar to this Cashmere Northcombe Coat by Burberry London as an option for Markle?
How about this Crepe Wrap Top by Proenza Schouler for the annual Garter Day service at St George’s Chapel in Windsor? It takes place in June so she should be (almost) warm enough despite the lack of sleeves.
This suave wool turtleneck from reiss.com might not as comfy be as sweat pants and a hoodie, but that slouchy neckline looks quite agreeable for a traveling outfit on a royal tour.
Belle of the ball
Okay, so this was Rachel’s almost-wedding dress on Suits, but when one is part of the royal family there’s plenty of ocassions for super-formal attire. Something like this could be a classy look for Buckingham Palace’s annual Diplomatic Reception. (Add: tiara.)
How about a Devore Velvet Butterfly Blouse by Nina Ricci paired with a pencil skirt for a dinner at the British Embassy in Paris? Mais, oui!
Attending Royal Ascot
There’s nothing like a day at the races! Maybe Markle could step out in something similar to this frayed tweed sleeveless peplum top by Proenza Schouler for the Royal Ascot? (She’d have to add a hat, of course!)
With the recent arrival of Prince Louis (William and Kate’s, not hers and Harry’s!), Markle will need to pick the right rig-out for the highly-publicized christening. Maybe this blue lace overlay pencil skirt by Burberry Prorsum would create a church-appropriate look if paired with a matching blazer?
Children's hospital visit
Is there anything better than an animal-embroidered blouse for a visit to a hospital to cheer up sick kids? We think this bird-patterned shirt would be the perfect look to lighten spirits.
There’ll be no shortage of fancy dinner parties and receptions when Markle is a fully-fledged member of the royal brood. If she felt like taking a break from formal frocks, this off-the-shoulder shirt and pencil skirt could make for a smart look.
The Main Event
In case you weren’t aware, Markle is set to pull up in a horse-drawn carriage and walk down the aisle to wed Prince Harry on May 19. While we’re sure to be stunned by the dazzling dress she picks out, we also won’t be able to help but compare her gown to Rachel’s on Suits.
