She might be known as the royal with the expensive taste, but we’ve rounded up Meghan Markle’s recycled outfits worn recently in South Africa.
It’s fair to say that the fashion choices Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, are under more scrutiny than any other royal family member. She’s be lambasted in the past for her expensive taste â€“ most recently she wore a $13,500USD Valentino gown to the wedding of her close friend, Misha Nonoo.
However, Markle has also proved she’s a strong proponent of sustainable fashion. She’s been spotted wearing the likes of sustainably minded Kiwi designer, Maggie Marilyn; cult US-based label, Reformation; and environmentally friendly Veja shoes.
Sister in law, Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, is has acquired somewhat of a reputation for re-wearing garments more than once â€“ take a look at one of our favourite repeat outfits here. And now it seems like Markle might be taking a leaf out of Kate’s book.
The Duchess of Sussex is currently on a tour of South Africa with husband Harry and baby Archie. Over the course of the tour, eagle-eyed fashionistas have noticed Meghan wearing a few familiar-looking outfits.
Whilst visiting Cape Town’s District Six, Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, wore the Veronica Beard “Cary” dress. The feminine number in the bold blue shade was last spotted on Meghan during her royal visit to Tonga last October. She was pregnant with Harry at the time.
The Duchess loves a good pair of jeans and at Monwabisi beach, Meghan opted for a double denim look which consisted of a Madewell denim jacket, J.Crew linen shirt, and her favourite Mother Denim “Looker” jeans. She completed the look with a pair of Brother Veilles huaraches, which are already sold out online. The Duchess last wore this look at a polo game with baby Archie.
While visiting Cape Town nonprofit Mothers2Mothers, the Duchess of Sussex re-wore the black Everlane jumpsuit that she was last spotted wearing while overseeing a shoot for the September issue of British Vogue, which she guest-edited. On her feet, Meghan wore a pair of her favourite black suede Manolo Blahnik “BB” pumps.
The striped Martin Grant maxi dress is quite possibly our favourite look that the Duchess has re-worn. We loved it the first time she wore in on Bondi Beach in Australia as part of the royal’s tour in October 2018. This time she chose to wear it to a reception a held at the Residence of the British High Commissioner in Cape Town.
