Meghan, Duchess of Sussex. Meghan Markle. Meg. No matter what you call her, there’s no denying the allure of the Her Royal Highness’s style. To celebrate her 37th birthday (it’s on August 4!), we’re highlighting seven of her best fashion moments.

Cape Dress + Skinny Belt

The occasion was Markle’s first royal engagement with the queen, so you knew she was going to dress to impress. This belted Givenchy dress has a removable cape, but honestly, why would you ever remove it when it looks this good on?

Get the look: Halston Heritage dress ($295); Madewell belt ($45)

Tailored Suit + Heels

That moment when you look better in a suit than your husband does. No offense to Prince Harry, but we can’t get over how damn chic our girl Meghan looks in this slim-fit Givenchy number during a recent visit to Ireland. The key here is tailoring: The pants hit at the perfect point on her ankles, while the sleeves end just above her wrists—doubly flattering.

Get the look: Banana Republic blazer ($195) and trousers ($60); Michael Michael Kors heels ($99)

Robe Coat + Skinny Pants + Pumps

Is it possible to wear a glorified robe in public and still look amazing? We’re glad you asked. Markle balances the proportions of her oversize coat by belting it and pairing it with skinny pants.

Get the look: Badgley Mischka coat ($200); Ann Taylor pants ($69); Steve Madden pumps ($90)

Midi Dress + Nude Pumps

In the past few years, Markle has tended to shy away from super form-fitting ensembles. This bold yellow Brandon Maxwell dress, which she wore to a reception in London this month, is a slight—and gorgeous—departure. More of this streamlined, body-skimming silhouette, please.

Fit-and-Flare Dress + Pumps

For a taping of the Today show way back in 2016, Meg wore an old Hollywood-esque fit-and-flare number that nips in her waist before fanning out to a full midi skirt. As usual, her accessories are understated perfection: In this case, her nude, pointy-toe pumps create the illusion of an even longer, more slender leg.

Get the look: Dress the Population dress ($182); Sam Edelman pumps ($120)

Pinstripe Dress + Blazer + Crossbody Bag

Is it just us, or is this look the perfect combination of dressed-up and effortless? Take off the blazer and heels and you’ve got a casual-cool outfit that would look amazing with flats; or swap the striped dress and crossbody for an LBD and you’re cocktail-party ready.  

Get the look: Ali & Jay dress ($128); Theory blazer ($535); Rebecca Minkoff bag ($125)

Cropped Jacket + Midi Pencil Skirt

Oh hi, Jackie O. While attending a memorial service for Anzac Day with Prince Harry and Prince William, Markle dressed to polished perfection in a black Emilia Wickstead skirt suit and a hat by Philip Treacy. The look is elegant, modern (thanks to the cropped silhouette of the jacket) and fit for a duchess.  

Get the look: Topshop jacket ($80); Ming Wang skirt ($180)
