Meghan Markle’s fashion has been majorly inspiring me recently. First she made me revisit my pleated skirt. Now Meghan Markle’s trench dress is having me rethink my trench vest.
I loved Meghan Markle’s blush trench dress she wore during an outing with Prince Harry. It’s from Canadian designer Nonie, and sold out immediately, despite the $1,000 price tag. I found a similar tan trench dress for only $27 if you want to recreate Meghan’s look.
As for me? I decided to revisit an old trench vest in my closet. I’ve worn this yellow sleeveless trench with jeans and a cami, over legging leggings and even layered over a black coat.
