Meghan Markle's Trench Dress Is a #TBT to Pre-Royal Days (in More Ways than One)
Meghan Markle may be a bit homesick, according to her wardrobe choices. Today, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended the Nelson Mandela Centenary Exhibit at London's Southbank Centre to honor the former South African president's 100th birthday.
Markle wore a House of Nonie trench dress in a dusty pink. But it wasn't the color (a signature Markle shade that's reminiscent of the Carolina Herrera off-the-shoulder dress or her Goat sheer-sleeved dress) that was a departure from recent wardrobe choices.
The fashion label, House of Nonie, is Canadian and may be a tribute to Markle's former residence (she lived in Toronto before moving to London to be with Prince Harry) following a slew of French and British designers worn during the couple's recent Ireland tour.
Another understated #TBT point involving the trench dress: According to People, Markle’s look is a re-wear she pulled from her own closet. The duchess actually bought the dress back in fall of 2017, so she’s decided to take a step back from new fashion purchases and get some more mileage out of her own pre-royal wardrobe instead.
So does this mean we can expect more Markle throwbacks in the coming months? (Praying the leopard pumps make a reappearance sometime soon.)
