If you've ever wondered what a royal wears on a date night, well, now you can wonder no more. Meghan Markle and her husband Prince Harry stepped out for a rainy evening together, but instead of re-creating that iconic image of them walking under an umbrella in a downpour, instead, Markle presented us with a look we'd very much like to re-create for ourselves. Oh, and did I mention it involves one of 2023's top trends?
I would like to make one thing clear before we proceed; wide-leg trousers are still very much a thing and remain a chic item in any wardrobe. However, you need only glance at our bumper spring 2023 trend report to notice that skinny trousers are back in a big way for the season ahead. And Meghan? Well, she's already ahead of the curve.
For their low-key date, Meghan opted for a pair of skinny, ankle-crop leather trousers, which she styled with an on-trend Caroline Herrera scarf coat and her trusty Dior pumps. Leather trousers can be tricky to style at the best of times—I know I struggle when it comes to deciding on which shoes to wear with mine—but Meghan makes it look easy. So easy, in fact, that I've broken down elements of her outfit below.
