Most mornings, I gather the courage open my news app and brace for the worst. Usually, I am not-surprised-yet-baffled by what I read. But occasionally, there’s a glimmer of something lovely that makes me smile. Such was the case with Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s engagement. Sure, we saw it coming from a mile (kilometer?) away, but I think, for me at least, it was pleasant to live vicariously through the couple (if for but a moment!) ‘cuz sometimes it feels so darn good to seal the deal. (I was just graduating high school when Kate and William broke up, and I was *so* concerned. Why was I so invested in their relationship? Who knows! It was kind of like reaching the conflict in a rom-com–will it work out? will we get our happy ending?! Aggh!)
Of course, the engagement isn’t free of negative baggage—there was the whole incident with a particularly nasty brooch, and now Markle’s half-sister is stirring the pot…but let’s just take a moment to be happy for the couple and enjoy Markle’s fabulous style—which we couldn’t help but veganize! The following outfit pieces are free of animal products, and nothing is crazy expensive 😉 Who says you have to be sitting on millions to look like a modern princess? Also, I’ve provided a few options for each component of Meghan Markle’s engagement outfit to aid in the customization process 😀
This classy outfit is ideal for formal family gatherings and work events–or dreamy dates with a prince. The white coat adds an extra luxe touch–if you’re wearing white and you’ve managed to keep it clean, there must be something special about you! Plus, the cinched waist allows you to define your figure in a flattering, comfortable way (no bodycon here, folks!). Meanwhile, the green dress provides a pretty pop of color while flattering a variety of skin tones–yasss! So much more interesting than your standard LBD. Finally, the strappy pale pumps are like a sexy wink–a subtle touch that makes the whole ensemble!
