While an athletic event usually calls for your best jersey and a functional skirt or pair of shorts, for Meghan Markle, a day of sports means something a bit more refined. On Sept. 13, the Duchess of Sussex attended her husband Prince Harry’s sixth annual Invictus Games in Düsseldorf, Germany, a multisport event catered to wounded servicemen and women after serving in Afghanistan. For the occasion, Markle, 42, wore an ensemble that nodded to the quiet-luxury trend, while maintaining her signature sophisticated style. Her preppy outfit included a black scoop-neck top, pleated shorts from Staud, black-and-beige Chanel slingbacks, and an ivory cardigan with black trim and gold buttons from J.Crew, the latter of which caused an unsurprising temporary crash of the company’s site when excited fans tried to shop it. Markle completed the look with a Givenchy logo buckle belt and a host of elegant accessories, including Anita Ko studs, a gold Love bangle and tank watch by Cartier, and a diamond pinky ring from Lorraine Schwartz.
The mom of two has become a sartorial inspiration for many people around the world, and her latest look is further proof. Most recently, Markle enjoyed a sweet coordinating moment with her husband, wearing a sleeveless turtleneck and matching tube skirt from Bleusalt while Harry wore a classic white button-down and slacks. She also takes a tip from her late mother-in-law, Princess Diana, for many of her outfits, including the off-the-shoulder Khaite bodysuit she wore to last year’s Invictus Games and the navy dress and Stephen Jones Millinery hat combo for an appearance at Trooping the Colour. Apart from her affinity for clean silhouettes and inviting colors, Markle often dabbles in her pre-royal style with bolder pieces. For the 2023 Women of Vision Awards in May, she effortlessly rocked a gold strapless cutout dress by Johanna Ortiz, and she wore a pastel Staud shorts suit to an LA Lakers game in April.
