I don’t know about all of you, but I still get a rush seeing Meghan Markle in her new, extremely low-key environment in California. After years of strict dress codes at formal engagements, a sighting that involves the Duchess of Sussex relaxing with friends in what can only be described as “California casual” attire is a breath of fresh air.
For her most recent outing—a shopping trip around Montecito and Santa Barbara—Markle chose a strapless jumpsuit from Malia Mills, a straw hat from Cuyana, and a dark-green Lauren Ralph Lauren knit tied effortlessly around her shoulders. She finished off the daytime look with a Chloé bucket bag, Valentino sunglasses, and, chicest of all, a pair of flat sandals from Emme Parsons with a loop around the toe adorned with a gold, jewelry-like bauble. Think of the shoes as a modern-day take on the toe ring, just a thousand times more buy-worthy.
Clearly, the impeccable sense of style Markle displayed back in the UK hasn’t skipped a beat. All it’s done is adjust to her new, more chilled-out surroundings in California. Shop the duchess’s casual-chic footwear style below.
