This weekend at every turn I saw another floral midi dress and it seems like Meghan Markle’s approach to summer city dressing is no different. At an event for the Invictus Games in London on Saturday Meghan wore a green floral pleated midi dress by the go-to label for luxury dresses at a sharp price point, Self Portrait. This brand is known for its now signature sculpted lace dresses however this season it moved its aesthetic forward by reworking the classic tea dress. Meghan proved once again that she is going to have a more modern approach to traditional royal dressing, as although it has a conservative knee-length, the dress has a fashion-forward off-the-shoulder neckline. Green floral print midis have been the surprise hit of the season, as dresses from ASOS, Kitri and more in this style can’t be restocked fast enough.
When it comes to smart dresses it can be difficult to find a coat or jacket that doesn’t look awkward sat with the dress, however Meghan masterly paired her midi with an Alexander McQueen classic black blazer. This worked so perfectly because it pulls out the black which is in the floral print. When looking for something to go over your dresses for wedding season, Meghan shows that you can’t go wrong with a classic black tuxedo. Keep scrolling to see — and shop — Meghan’s latest look.
Anyone else considering buying one of these for wedding season?
