Meghan Markle just delivered another noteworthy style moment. The Duchess of Sussex's ability to elevate any article of clothing to sophisticated status continues to amaze us, and she achieved this again with her latest look. During her fashionable trip to New York City, Markle made time for a casual lunch date with one of her close friends, journalist Gloria Steinem. She looked effortlessly chic in a pair of navy-blue Dior Bermuda shorts finished with rolled cuffs, along with a crisp white button-down and a pair of brown Manolo Blahnik pumps. The shoes were seamlessly matched to her Ralph Lauren belt and the Cult Gaia beaded clutch she accessorized with. Markle rounded out the ensemble with her go-to Cartier watch and bangle set and a pair of golden studs.
Her classy shorts ensemble is a clear nod to her late mother-in-law, Princess Diana, whose iconic style continues to inspire the women of the royal family. Diana was known for wearing Bermuda shorts, having rocked them on many occasions, most notably on a trip to Walt Disney World in 1993, where she wore a khaki pair.
The Duchess continues to follow in the Princess's footsteps with her sartorial combinations. On the first day, she stunned in an all-black Givenchy top-and-skirt set as well as a chic black-and-white Gabriela Hearst jumpsuit she wore to dinner with the Duke.
With Markle's impeccable style appearances, the expectations for future style moments remain high. In the meantime, see the mother of two's look up close as well as Princess Diana's ensemble at Walt Disney World. Plus, shop the pieces Markle wore.
