2018 Invictus Games Closing Ceremony

At the closing ceremony of the Invictus Games, Meghan Markle opted for her most trusted color, olive green. The duchess took to the stage in an Antonio Berardi tuxedo dress. If you've been closely following her sartorial moves, you know that olive green is her go-to color.

2018 Invictus Games Wheelchair Basketball Final

One of her most memorable looks, comprised of a Scanlan Theodore maroon, crepe-knit, wrap-style top and a pair of black tapered trousers, was on a basketball court.

Auckland War Memorial Museum Reception

Meghan really loves formal dresses in un-fussy, solid colors. So much so that she once again wore this asymmetrical Antonio Berardi number twice — once for her New Zealand visit and for one of her first public sightings with Prince Harry in May of last year.

A State Dinner in Fiji

Meghan chose another blue stunner for her first major Fiji appearance. The bright cape gown from luxury ready-to-wear brand Safiyaa made headlines as a lot of people assumed Meghan, who had just announced her pregnancy, was hinting at the sex of her baby.

Who's the Boss?

We really wish Meghan had more photo ops in this stellar Hugo Boss maroon, midi-length Eordora dress, which she wore as the royal party left Australia. The duchess paired it with nude Aquazzura pumps in her signature sky-high preferred heel height.

The Duchess Wore Leather

Right before her pregnancy announcement, Meghan wore a forest green leather skirt by Hugo Boss. She paired it with a button-up blouse by & Other Stories for her visit to Sussex.

Ireland Visit

Meghan chose a stunning emerald green (are you noticing a pattern yet?) Givenchy pencil skirt and blouse for her arrival in Dublin. She paired it with nude pumps and a Strathberry tote bag.

The Queen and the Duchess

For her first solo outing with Queen Elizabeth, Meghan chose a simple-but-chic nude Givenchy dress with a quirky caped shoulder accent.

Meghan Markle has been a royal long enough for us to launch a full-fledged inquiry into her most preferred lewks. And as unpredictable as the fierce mom-to-be is with her wardrobe choices, we have been able to determine one thing: Boy, does she love simple, solid colors.

From her unadorned, bottle green engagement reveal dress (by Italian luxe label P.A.R.O.S.H.) to everything she wore during her recent 16-day Australia and New Zealand tour, it’s pretty obvious that the duchess loves clear, defined palettes, preferably in dominating color schemes that revolve around subtle colors like dark blues, blacks, browns and dark greens and often pale neutral hues like blush and beige.

A number of reports claim that Meghan has been choosing neutral colors as a tactic so as to not upstage Queen Elizabeth, who is famous for her love of bright, popping colors. “The Duchess of Sussex is showing great consideration by wearing more neutral colors and tones when on duty with Her Majesty as it allows the Queen to take center stage and top billing, as is only right,” etiquette coach William Hanson told Harper’s Bazaar U.K. after Meghan wore a Prada pale blush number for the Young Leaders Awards this June.

But Meghan has been wearing solids almost everywhere, even when the queen was not present. This also makes Meghan’s style markedly different from her sister-in-law Kate Middleton. The Duchess of Cambridge has rocked every print from florals to polka dots and has even taught us a thing or two about pairing formal prints.

Meghan obviously switched up her style when she took on her new royal role and has explored a surprisingly austere color palette consisting of basic neutrals military and khaki colors. But that doesn’t mean her fashion has been even remotely stuffy or stale. So what are some of Meghan Markle’s best looks when it comes to solids? Let’s have a look.
