Meghan Markle's Canada trip wardrobe has been, as expected, second to none. 

After nailing snow chic in the coolest affordable boots on the Whistler ski slopes, and wearing a 60s mod-inspired coat from a coastal California brand that fashion editors are obsessed with, the stylish duchess has reverted back to her signature sartorial agenda: sophisticated, casual and quiet luxury.

At the Invictus Games 2025’s One Year To Go Winter Training Camp in Whistler, British Columbia, Meghan stunned in the Quilted Reversible Bomber Jacket from Hermès.

Though Meghan wore hers with the navy design on the outside (like a true minimalistic fashion muse), the coat features a bold black, white and yellow interior for on the days the pared-back style icon is feeling a little more adventurous.

She paired the look with black skinny jeans, walking boots from Kamik, a black cashmere beanie and dazzling rings to amp up the glam. The piece de resistance and the piece to prove she's a designer fashion icon? Her black Bottega Veneta phone case with a quilted design replicating its iconic Cassette bag.

"Its unique silhouette has managed to transcend the trend cycle and now the bomber is an outerwear classic that pops up on the runway, season after season," explains Hello! Fashion's Orin Carlin, "A bomber jacket derives from military origins, having evolved from the flight jacket style. It was intended for functional use, to be worn as a lightweight layer that would keep aircrews warm while not restricting their movement."

Meghan's entire look embodies preppy-cool, with designer pieces to give her off-duty look an air of elegance that Sofia Richie would wholly approve of.

As much as we'd all love to purchase Meghan's exact bomber, French luxury label Hermès may be just slightly out of budget. But fear not, we have a list of 15 incredible bomber-style jackets for you to shop now.
