The Wardrobe Staple in Meghan Markle's Closet That Helps Minimize Her Growing Baby Bump

It's not easy to strike a pose when you're feeling bloated and tired and bleh. That's why we're bowing down to Meghan Markle for stocking her closet with a piece that doubles as a winter-friendly maternity style hack. 

The item? An ankle-length coat. Based on pics, she's got a boatload of them in a variety of colors ranging from neutral hues to bright (and Queen Elizabeth-approved) jewel tones. 

A fan of the wrap style in particular—her M.O. since she first got engaged to Prince Harry—it's forgiving and sleek, but it's also figure-flattering and flexible for the days she'd like her waist defined (she can belt it)...and the frumpy-feeling days she'd rather not (open, the length still helps create a long, clean line).

So, brava, Meghan, for reminding the world that maternity stores aren't your only option for stylishly dressing your royal bump.
