The Duchess of Sussex, who has just announced that she is pregnant, is not just sticking stick to a formal royal uniform this tour. She has already worn a pair of skinny jeans, espadrilles, an & Other Stories polka dot dress, Veja trainers, Reformation sundress and ankle boots. But one royal styling convention she is firmly sticking to is nodding to her host country via her outfits. It is customary for the royal family to wear designers from the nations they visit, colours and motifs to reflect the stops on their schedule and brands with an ethos that align with their own messages.
Case in point? Markle wore a pair of skinny jeans by sustainable denim brand Outland, a company created by an Australian couple who manufacture in Cambodia and provide support and a career path for women who have survived sex and human trafficking. "I cannot think of a more suitable person to carry the Outland Denim brand. The Duchess' advocacy for issues of social justice and women's rights completely aligns with the work that we do. We are absolutely thrilled that she chose to wear Outland Denim on this tour," says James Bartle, Founder of Outland Denim.
Aware that these pictures will go all over the world in mere minutes, the Duchess is cleverly using the "Meghan Effect" to grow the companies that will have a positive impact. In classic Meghan Markle style, her royal tour wardrobe so far is just the right balance of classic yet elegant with a touch of tailoring (how very Audrey Hepburn).
