The Meghan Markle Power Coat

The royal wedding is officially 11 days away, and if you’re planning on tuning in to see Prince Harry and Meghan Markle say ‘I do’ in front of the whole Windsor clan (and millions of captive fans) you’ve probably already started thinking about how you’re going to watch and what you will wear. Even if you don’t usually dabble in the goings-on of the royal family, there isn’t any reason why you shouldn’t at least try to channel your inner Megan Markle for the occasion.

Future royal and current style icon Meghan Markle starts a trend pretty much anytime she puts clothing on her body. It’s about fashion, yes, but in particular, the ex-actress has been recognized for her show-stopping outerwear selections — so much so that the  “Meghan Markle Power Coat” is an official sartorial subgenre.

The Double-Breasted Tartan by Burberry

This slouchy, menswear-inspired ensemble provides a prime example of Markle’s plan to be a different sort of duchess — the effortlessly cool Serena van der Woodsen to Kate Middleton’s uppity Blair Waldorf.

 It’s likely that Markle’s “Bad Sandy” biker-jacket days are behind her now, but last fall she was a mere royal side piece, subject to fewer restrictions around self-expression. The style of this jacket suggests anarchy, and she’s wearing it draped over her shoulders — a long-established power posture for celebrities and fashion-world types (if entirely impractical for royal-waving purposes.)  Get the look: Cotton On Biker Jacket R 899

Fashion Editor I am a stylist and have worked with many celebrities. Magazines are a great platform to inform people on styling and fashion trends. Fashion gives freedom to people and allows them to be who they want to be. I loves to help readers to look as stylish as they can be, regardless of their body type, skin colour etc. It’s a great feeling to have knowing, that in helping someone choose an outfit, you’re also helping them feel more confident. When I'm not busy being a fashion editor I can be found designing and drawing.
