15 best tuxedo dresses to emulate Meghan Markle’s sleek style

Make like Meghan and go sleek with a tailored tux dress

Looking for party dress inspiration? Take your cue from Meghan Markle's dress roster and try a more tailored look – a tuxedo dress.

The Duchess of Sussex is such a big fan of the flattering blazer dress look that she's worn the design on not one, but many different occasions. And you’ll find plenty tux dresses on the high street for a fraction of the cost of Meghan’s dresses.

Meghan first wowed in a super chic black number for a special gala performance of Hamilton back in 2018. Stepping out alongside husband Prince Harry, the dress, designed by Canadian label Judith and Charles was a sexy, spot-on outfit for the event.

She next swapped the black neutral for a khaki Antonio Beradi tuxedo dress for the Invictus Games closing ceremony while on the royal tour, and paired it with an edgy Aquazurra nude heel.

And more recently, Meghan wore a white sleeveless version worn on the Royal Tour of New Zealand. The mum of two kept the rest of her look simple and teamed the white Maggie Marilyn dress with navy Manolo Blahnik pumps.

How to wear a tuxedo dress

Take Meghan's styling of her tuxedo dresses as your cheat sheet. The golden rule? Keep legs bare and heels high.

Meghan has always worn her hair up when wearing a tuxedo dress, too, which is tantamount for showcasing the sharp, tailored neckline of this style of dress.

Of course, a black tuxedo dress or the style in nude or white is a classic choice, but don’t shy away from the trend in bold bright hues or textured materials – a sequinned tuxedo dress, embellished or feathered trim are top of the list.
