Princess-to-be Meghan Markle is proving to be a style influencer in the making. But make no mistake: She isn't new to the ins and outs of the fashion world. Being a Hollywood actress, Meghan has always had a penchant for dressing up for red carpet events. Below, take a look back at her style evolution over the years:
1. Let's start by establishing Meghan's affinity for mini dresses and black-and-white ensembles. From this sighting in 2007, we're already given a glimpse of her keen eye for details. Case in point: this simple bubble-hem dress brought to life with a statement bow.
2. The Suits star is obviously inclined to no-fuss dressing, whether she's attending events or gracing red carpet premieres. She knows how to choose the right pieces with interesting details (like this off-the-shoulder sequined dress) or slip into an eye-catching pair of shoes to elevate her look.
3. Despite her love for all things black, Meghan is unafraid to wear color. Here she is sporting frocks in burnt orange, moss green, and royal blue, all of which perfectly accentuate her golden, sun-kissed skin.
4. By 2015, Meghan established a clearer image of her personal style: classic, structured, and crisp.
5. She nails her sleek style in a power suit and in a relaxed short suit, demonstrating how you can wear office staples beyond work.
6. A quick rundown of her 2016 fashion choice: She stepped out in a Line, P.A.R.O.S.H, and Aquazzara ensemble to announce her royal engagement to Prince Harry.
7. Her no-fuss style we've seen early on is still apparent in her current wardrobe, only more refined, polished, and dare we say, quite British. She showcases this in her expertly put-together monochromatic look.
8. Upon the release of her engagement photos, it's obvious that Meghan has not lost her love for the finer details. Just take a look at her slightly sheer, beaded Ralph & Russo couture gown that also features a tiered floor-length skirt.
9. The princess-to-be has slowly graduated from Rachel's office looks to chic yet effortless outfits that can be achieved through a careful curation of classic pieces.
