Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced in October 2018 that they are expecting their first child and, needless to say, we can’t wait to meet the newest royal baby. As Markle’s due date gets closer, we have no doubt that the two are becoming even more busy preparing for their new arrival. In fact, Markle was recently spotted attending what seems to be her baby shower (in the U.S., no less), and her daring outfit is redefining how we think about baby shower style.
E! News reports that the Duchess of Sussex arrived in New York City for the event, which took place on February 19th. By all accounts, the event was a festive celebration of the new baby, who is expected to arrive sometime this spring. Sources told the news outlet that Markle’s former Suits co-star Abigail Spencer was in attendance, bringing the mom-to-be a gift from Book Culture. The decorations were reportedly pink and floral, with cherry blossoms and roses featured prominently.
The duchess arrived at the venue in a private SUV, and she stepped out of the car wearing a surprising yet chic outfit for her shower. Pictures of Markle show her clad in black skinny jeans, nude heels, and a dark gray pea coat, one hand cradling her baby bump. According to E!, the jeans are from the Hatch Maternity line and retails for $248. While dark shades may be surprising for a baby shower look, Markle’s ensemble gives off serious secret service agent vibes, and we’re in love.
If you feel inspired to emulate Markle’s style, check out some of these options:
This cute swing coat from ASOS definitely has princess vibes. And it’s only $47.50! Get it here.
Or this wool-blend pea coat from Abercrombie & Fitch, which is currently on sale for $60. The black and brown herringbone pattern calls to mind the texture on Markle’s coat. Get it here.
We also love this $80 jacket from StyleWe. The A-line fit and three-quarter sleeves have the same retro feel as the original. Get it here.
Markle never fails to serve us with style inspo, but her latest look is definitely one to remember. And we’re sure that her baby shower itself was just as memorable.
