When Meghan Markle changed outfits on her first day of the royal tour of Southern Africa, it became clear that she’s paying attention not just to brands, but to trends. Meghan started the day in a look from ethical fashion label Mayamiko, which was made of fabric sourced in Malawi (one of the upcoming stops on the tour). But later, when she joined Prince Harry for a visit to the District 6 Museum and Homecoming Centre in Cape Town, she wore an electric blue shirtdress from Veronica Beard – one that probably looks familiar.
This number made for a memorable outfit for the duchess in Tonga in 2018, though there she completed the midi with Banana Republic heels, and this time around she kept on her Castañer wedges. Meghan must have been watching the Spring 2020 runways, because this bright, sky blue shade is everywhere, and now it’ll probably end up in your closet too – sooner, rather than later. Meghan went necklace free, though she was wearing her wedding band for this appearance. Ahead, see how Meghan reinvented her Veronica Beard design, then shop inspired pieces that you’ll want to wear well into 2020. That’s a pretty trustworthy purchase, don’t you think?
