With what is going to be not just the wedding of the year, but the wedding of the decade happening this month, Meghan Markle will be all over our screens. So, how do we too nail the soon-to-be-royal look?
During formal daytime events, Markle typically wears long belted coats and heeled boots to create an attractive, but sophisticated silhouette. For more casual occasions, we often see her in jeans and buttoned-down shirt combo for chic simplicity.
But it’s not always low-key and demure during the day with Markle. For example, her outfit to Christmas lunch with the royal family, the sassy actress opted for a stunning, high-neck, midi dress in black to dine with her future in-laws. So, don’t be afraid to embrace bolder, more fashion forward options!
Due to her soon-to-be official princess status, Markle has to be careful when it comes to dressing up for a night out. But that doesn’t mean she doesn’t wow the crowds when she steps out for the evening.
Markle is no stranger to cute shirt-dresses and daring off-the-shoulder numbers. However, her style centres on creating balance in her outfit: if she opts for a short hemline, she’ll compensate with a coat or long-sleeved top to cover her upper half. Similarly, if she feels like a strapless jumpsuit or low-cut dress is appropriate for the evening, she’s likely to opt for full-leg or maxi lengths. Stay sophisticated, minimalist and modest — and remember to choose just one part of your figure to highlight. Your royal subjects will love it!
From Disney child star to global music icon, Ariana Grande has fast become one of the biggest names in showbiz today. Her music videos have been viewed more than nine billion times online and she has won a slew of awards including three MTV Europe Music Awards, three American Music Awards, and four Grammy nominations – phew! But not only is she a massive music mogul, she’s also a tour du force in the world of fashion.
Ariana’s style is actually uber feminine, going from cute and girly one minute to glamourous goddess the next! She’s a massive fan of cropped tops, but is also very skilled and showing the right amount of flesh, which is no mean feat to pull off fillies! During the day, you could go for a short graphic tee with your fave skinny jeans or opt for an oversized sweatshirt dress with killer over the knee boots. Grande is definitely into her athleisure, with retro jumpers, trainers and leggings all fall under this on-trend umbrella. Distressed denim is a staple of Grande’s style too, so make sure to incorporate plenty of light-wash denim shirts and frayed jackets into your daytime wardrobe.
With a body-oddy-oddy to die for, Grande is an expert at flaunting her figure. At night, ditch the casual cropped top for the more glamorous bralet. Whether you go for black lace or navy satin, pair yours with chic, high-waisted tapered trousers for a knock-out outfit. Grande is very confident with her style, so don’t shy away from your evening wardrobe and try experimenting with bold checks, bright colours and her signature over-the-knee boots paired with your party dress!
It’s no surprise that Gigi Hadid is the fashionista we know and love today – she been modelling since she was two years old! Fast becoming one of 2018’s biggest style icons her style is exactly that – iconic. To get her look, channel your confidence and individualism and prepare to bring a slice of the catwalk to your everyday style!
Hadid’s off-duty style is infused with shades of high fashion! Try a neon puffer coat with jogging bottoms and pair of glam sunglasses or go for a plain top and distressed-denim jacket with a pair of chic, skinny patent leather trousers. Hadid is also a big fan of the athleisure trend, so incorporate plenty of cut-off sweatshirts, colourful leggings and sneakers into your wardrobe.
She may be a trailblazer for the casual-chic look, but when it’s time to glam up for an event, few stars do it better than Hadid. Faux fur and bold prints give Hadid’s look a twist of luxe fashion, and merging these with plain pieces — such as high-waisted black trousers and plain long trench coats —helps to emphasise each vibrant motif and fabric.
Wear dresses with longer hemlines and bare shoulders, or opt for tapered trousers with a corset-style top. If you want to show more leg, the supermodel often flaunts her pins with a maxi slit dress for the perfect balance of seductiveness and sophistication.
Margot Robbie’s meteoric rise to fame from Neighbours to Hollywood, has made her not only one to watch on the big screen, but one to watch in the style stakes!
Robbie effortlessly blends that quintessential Aussie casual, beach-ready look with feminine Hollywood glamour. During the day, you can emulate her carefree style by pairing classic sneakers with cute playsuits. Go for mini sweat dresses with a retro backpack or opt for ripped jeans or denim dresses mixed with tan accessories. Floaty shirts and plain blue denim jeans with pumps or sandals is also a typical day-perfect outfit for this rising star.
Robbie is a huge fan of everything from sultry jumpsuits and boho vibes to edgy pieces and classic Hollywood glamour — so don’t shy away from getting creative with your evening-ready outfits. Go for floor-length dresses created from ruffles and lace to create a romantic silhouette or try a single-colour, strapless mini design with matching shoes for a clean and crisp look that exudes femininity. Robbie wears monochrome palettes often, so have a collection of black and white pieces at your fingertips to get the same contemporary vibe.
These beauties are who we are looking to in 2018 – who are yours, fillies? Remember, we all have individual looks that we should love. But blending the above inspo into your wardrobe might just inject the celebrity glamour you deserve into your day and night looks too!
