When the Duchess appeared at the Invictus Games held in the Netherlands in 2022, she nailed transitional season chic as she teamed a pair of cropped boyfriend jeans from Moussy with a classic white tee and the ultimate goes-with-everything Chausser bouclé jacket by Céline.
As someone who is a royal style spotter for a living, I can tell you that Meghan has proven that if there's a wardrobe staple you'll be wearing for seasons to come, it's a bouclé jacket in classic black. It gives French designer vibes and can be worn with so many different outfits.
Whether Chanel, Céline, Mango or Zara, it looks great with trousers or over a dress for work or, like Meghan, you can team it with the always-cool white t-shirt and jeans to elevate what might otherwise be a more casual look. Denim trends are constantly changing, but the jacket is timeless – meaning this combination will always look modern, just switch up your jeans.
The Duchess' designer threads had fans swooning, and if you're in love with her bouclé jacket then look no further!
Duchess Meghan wore her luxury designer black bouclé jacket at the Invictus Games in 2022
Priced at £79.99 ($129.99), I've found the perfect lookalike, and I think it would get the royal seal of approval.
Mango’s Pocket Tweed Jacket is in a cotton-blend tweed fabric, with a straight, slightly cropped silhouette and the same style of gold metallic button detailing as Meghan’s with four patch pockets. It’s lined and comes in sizes XXS to 4XL - plus it also comes in cream and red, too.
Not sure how to accessorise your new-season purchase? Why not take a leaf out of Meghan's book? The Duchess looks so put together with her accessories: aviator sunglasses and a chain handbag - the gold hardware picks up on the jacket's button details - and Chanel cap-toe flats (I love Steve Madden's lookalikes) which are another timeless choice.
Meghan looked so glam in her Newman Aviator Sunglasses (£675 / $950) from London-based brand, Linda Farrow. If you don’t want to splash out on designer shades, I'd recommend a similar look by a budget-friendly brand Meghan loves, Le Specs.
The ‘Charmer’ aviators have a similar gold frame and at £64.49 ($79.99) are a fraction of the price.
And don't forget the jewellery! Meghan also added a pair of diamond starburst stud earrings from Serena Williams' collection, as well as a duet pinky ring set by Shiffon.
During the Invictus Games, Meghan debuted a number of stunning new looks, but I have to admit my favourite was this jacket and jeans combo - so chic!
