Meghan has a styling trick we can all steal

When it comes to great personal style Meghan Markle is the perfect example of it’s not what you wear, it’s how you wear it.

On Wednesday, she stepped out in a £1,450 Altuzarra dress with a Camilla and Marc blazer nonchalantly draped over her shoulders.

It’s a style tip that’s been referred to as the ‘editors cape’ as it’s a look that started on the front row (FROW) at New York fashion week a few seasons ago.

American Vogue editor Anna Wintour is fan, emerging from her chauffeur driven car and darting to her front row seat with a designer jacket perched deftly on her slender shoulders.

It’s a look that says, ‘I’m busy, I’m somebody.’ It also means you’ve probably got a driver and someone big and burly to open doors for you.

For Meghan it’s also a clever fashion move because it means you can still see her outfit underneath. If she’d worn her blazer we would have lost a lot of the detail on her pinstripe dress.

The jacket over the shoulders also has a more feminine, romantic connotation. It resembles the look when a women borrows a man’s jacket on a chilly evening and drapes it over her gown.

It’s no coincidence that Victoria Beckham is also fan of this trick. No one knows more than putting in a good red carpet appearance and making the best of an outfit than the A-list fashion designer.

It’s also a little trick we can all try. Now, where’s my driver?
