Meghan Markle Is the Picture of Understated Polish in High-Waisted Trousers

After delivering the keynote speech at the One Young World summit in tailored red separates by sustainable brand Another Tomorrow, Meghan Markle returned to her signature sleek neutrals to join Prince Harry at the Invictus Games in Dusseldorf, Germany. 

Meghan’s penchant for discreet, stealth wealth labels like The Row, Khaite, and Loro Piana has been on full display since the Sussex family relocated to the US. Gone are the formal Givenchy dress coats, and in their place, relaxed tailoring, city shorts, and the occasional Gabriela Hearst jumpsuit (Hearst’s conscious approach makes her brand a natural fit for the royal).

On the second day of the couple’s first trip back to Europe since the Platinum Jubilee celebrations, the Duchess tucked a knitted high-neck sleeveless top by Anine Bing into a pair of high-waisted beige trousers by Brandon Maxwell. The finishing touch? The hairstyle that became her signature when Meghan first entered the royal spotlight: the undone bun

The look echoed the neutral outfit she was snapped wearing as the couple arrived at Euston to catch a train to Manchester on Monday: a knitted silk-cashmere polo shirt, also by Brandon Maxwell, with coordinating tailored trousers in a similar camel shade. 

With the addition of luxe accessories (a Cartier Tank watch and Love bracelet), the overall effect was one of understated polish—the sort most women hope to achieve with their professional wardrobe. But make no mistake: looking this effortless takes work.
