Throwin’ it way back to this look Meghan Markle wore on her very first official joint engagement with Prince Harry in December of last year! The newly engaged couple visited Nottingham on December 1st, 2017, for the World Aids Day charity fair hosted by the Terrence Higgins Trust.
To meet well-wishers, the soon-to-be Duchess of Sussex wore this buttoned-up navy Elodie coat by Mackage with a matching Strathberry Midi tote. We didn’t get to see the rest of her outfit until she got inside, when she revealed she was wearing almost a completely different color scheme. Underneath her coat was a black Wolford turtleneck bodysuit, a beige Joseph midi skirt and black suede over-the-knee boots by London-based Kurt Geiger. While I love all the pieces she chose for this look, I don’t think I personally would have paired the coat and bag with the outfit underneath. I think the coat and bag would’ve looked great over a winter white look or a dress with hints of burgundy and navy. But I’m just a matchy-matchy person that way!
As a fan of neutrals myself, I actually really do like the underneath outfit of the black turtleneck, long midi and over-the-knee boots. The look was flattering, interesting (love the layering of the skirt over the boots!), and sophisticated without feeling stuffy. I also think the coat and bag are both beautiful pieces, especially when paired together! The very best part about this look? Nearly every piece has been restocked this season. You can still buy her exact coat, exact boots, exact bodysuit and exact bag (in a variety of colors!). If you want to recreate this look for less, be sure to check out the dupes I found in the SHOP MEGHAN’S LOOK section below!
