71 Stunning Meghan Markle Outfits That Leave Us Speechless

Meghan Markle has wowed us with one stunning look after another over the years; and it’s no surprise to learn that the world was obsessed with her chic and timeless style even years before she made her official royal debut! We want to take a look at some of the most iconic Meghan Markle outfits of all time – including the effortless ensemble she wore when she was first pictured with then boyfriend Prince Harry at the Invictus Games in Toronto in 2017, and her breathtaking Clare Waight Keller wedding dress for the royal wedding in 2018.

We also want to take a trip down memory lane and relive some of Meghan’s greatest looks as a working royal (and quite a few since she and Prince Harry stepped down from royal life in January 2020) and of course, not forgetting some of her best red carpet appearances from before she became the Duchess of Sussex and was best known as Rachel Zane from Suits.

Here are 71 Meghan Markle outfits that we have been obsessed with over the years:

She may not have gotten away with such a short hemline before she and Harry stepped down as senior royals, but we think she pulled this Valentino floral-embellished mini dress off perfectly. Meghan looked chic and elegant, and her hair was worn back with two tendrils softly framing her face.

This was the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s final engagement before they stepped down as senior royals – and boy did they make it count! Meghan took a leaf out of the late Queen Elizabeth II’s book by opting for bold block color – and the bespoke emerald green Emilia Wickstead dress and cape she wore is one of our favorite Meghan looks of all time! She finished her chic look off with a bespoke hat by milliner William Chambers, Aquazzura ‘Purist’ pumps, and a Gabriela Hearst satin tote.

Edes House, 2018

Colder climates mean more layers and more outerwear – and we bet Meghan has a very enviable selection of jackets and coats from her time in the UK! This Emporio Armani cashmere coat is the epitome of chic, and we love how she teamed it with a Hugo Boss skirt, a blouse from & Other Stories, and a Gabriela Hearst tote bag.

She wore her hair up so as not to take anything away from the off-the-shoulder design of the bodysuit, or the jaw-dropping Cartier Juste un Clou necklace, which currently retails for over $15,000. We don’t blame her for wanting to keep her hair out of the way!
