Looks We Love: Meghan Markle's Royal Blue Coat

Autumn is officially here 🍁

We Love…

Meghan Markle’s cobalt blue coat by Smythe Jackets. The Duchess of Sussex joined her mother Doria and Prince Harry to attend the launch of the cookbook she is supporting. The book features 50 stories and recipes passed down by women who were affected by the Grenfell Tower tragedy.

Why It Works…

Not only does it look fantastic over a black pleated skirt and stilettos, the rounded lapels are a great detail in an autumn coat. It’s also a rich colour that tends to go well with both warm and cool colours worn around the winter time such as oxblood reds, mustard yellows and bronzed browns.

Also Seen On…

The Duchess of Cambridge has worn a range of royal blue coats in the past but a favourite of ours is the electric blue coat dress by Eponine London. This shade of blue is fitting for most seasons.

Follow Their Lead…

If you like this colourway, this L.K. Bennett double breasted coat will do (£179). However, if you’re looking for something lighter, a waterfall coat is perfect for your date night (Silk Fred, £32). On the other hand this darker blue wool coat may be our new favourite classic (Mango, £89.99).
