The pics of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry stepping out for dinner at San Vicente Bungalows in West Hollywood dropped nearly the same time the world found out they were being booted from their U.K. home at Frogmore Cottage. A big deal, yes, but I was somehow focused on something else: Meghan’s date night pants.
They were confirmed to be this cropped style from Veronica Beard—the Maera skinny jean made from vegan leather. Markle paired the look with a neutral cape coat and pair of black pumps. So effortless, so chic.
Leather (and faux leather) pants are of course on trend for 2023, but as showcased by Markle, they’re also timelessly chic. Still, I’m 5’2” and have curvier hips and thighs—what were the chances I could pull them off?
