These Are Meghan Markle’s Top Holiday Fashion Tips

With the holiday season in full swing, royal watchers are turning to Meghan Markle for advice on the latest seasonal fashion tips. Before tying the knot with Prince Harry, she made a name for herself starring on the hit series, Suits, and writing a blog called The Tig, where she often shared her thoughts on the latest fashion trends. Here is a quick look at all of the Duchess of Sussex’s top holiday fashion tips.

Keep things simple

Although it is traditional to wear red and green over the holidays, Meghan Markle advises against looking like a Christmas tree ornament. Instead, she advises that people wear monochromatic colors that are not overly glitzy.

“Throwing on a black dress with black tights, cute booties, a great coat and throw a scarf over it,” Markle shared. “I think simple accessories and, if you want to make a pop, a great red lip.”

For Markle, choosing a more simple color scheme is not about blending in with the crowd. The former actress believes that fashion items like cashmere wraps or leggings are things that will stand up to the test of time.

According to National Post, she added that keeping it simple shows that an individual has mastered their own sense of style, regardless of the season. It also means that people do not need extensive wardrobes filled with clothes for every occasion.

Instead, Meghan Markle says to focus on the quality of your clothes instead of the quantity. Not only will this allow you to stand out above the crowd, but it also helps to avoid fashion missteps.

How to jazz things up

Although Markle is a big fan of keeping things simple, she had a few tips on how to dress things up a bit. This includes wearing some colorful lipstick or adding an accessory, like a statement clutch.

Meghan Markle also addressed wearing lavish jewels for the holidays and other over-the-top items. For her, it is all about wearing things that will not be going out of style in a few years.

That way, when you look back at those holiday photos, you do not question your fashion choices or have any regrets.

“I think the worst mistake that a lot of us make is we try to do something so trend-driven, that two years later, you look at those pictures from a holiday party — or you look on Facebook where you can’t control them — and you go, ‘Why did I wear that?’” she explained.

Markle went on to admit that she has made plenty of mistakes when it comes to holiday fashion tips. This is one reason why she advises people to think twice about what they choose to wear for the Christmas party.

And with social media these days, an outfit mistake can haunt you for much longer than in the old days.

Meghan Markle’s go-to holiday fashion wear

Given Markle’s previous fashion tips, it is no surprise that most of her holiday outfits over the years have been simple yet elegant.

The Duchess of Sussex, for example, loves to rock monochromatic dresses, and for the holidays, she tends to favor darker shades of green — which are perfect for the occasion.

When putting together a monochromatic look, keep in mind that the colors do not have to perfectly match. In fact, it is often better if the colors are a few shades apart. This will help add some depth to your look.

Markle also plays with textures well. This includes wearing chiffon with leather or pairing wool with silk. Switching up the texture of the fabrics will help prevent you from looking like a color swatch.

Meghan Markle launches her own fashion line

With Markle becoming somewhat of a global fashion expert, she recently teamed up with designer Misha Nonoo to launch her own line of clothes.

The Duchess of Sussex and Nonoo teamed up to release a capsule collection, which features affordable clothing women can wear for job interviews.

Meghan Markle teamed up with a company named Smart Works to release the line. Smart Works is a charitable organization in the U.K. that assists women in finding professional clothes that will increase their chances of starting a career.

Nonoo and Markle, of course, have been friends for the better part of eight years. The Duchess has even worn some pieces from Nonoo’s collection of the years, including a dress she wore during her first appearance with Harry.

Meghan Markle, Prince Harry, and Archie Harrison are spending Christmas in America and Canada this year, but hopefully, she will share some photos of the festivities on social media for all of her followers to enjoy.
