Meghan Markle's Fashion on Suits Pretty Much Prepared Her For Kensington Palace
Before she became Prince Harry's fiancée, Meghan Markle played Rachel Zane on Suits. Like all the ladies on the show, her character was smart, sort of stubborn, and well dressed. Rachel had the ability to make corporate dressing look stylish, if not sometimes sexy, and this was done with a variety of tops, cardigans, and pencil skirts. If you dig deeper into the show's archives, you can see how Rachel's style might have influenced Meghan's IRL. They both share an affinity for clean, tailored pieces and, most importantly, love a quality button-down.
Now that Meghan's on her way to developing a curated royal wardrobe, we're looking back at her Suits character for hints of what's to come. Modesty and ladylike pieces are key here, and Rachel's wardrobe is full of them. In fact, all of her clothes would probably be approved by the Queen. Read on for some tips and tricks to steal from Rachel Zane, because Meghan likely already has.
