The Princess Diaries - Trading Out Jeans for A Crown
It wasn’t too long ago that the world was glued to their social media feeds for news of the royal wedding, that is to say, the Duchess’ little sister Pippa’s big day. News from the family has made consistent headlines, a nice break from the post-referendum pre-Brexit news; amidst May’s stern attire we had baby bumps and Phillip Treacy hats. Tied particularly close to the fashion industry, royal news has always wreaked havoc, in a good way, for small and big labels alike. Famously sold out after Kate Middleton and Prince William’s engagement announcement, the blue Issa dress will forever go down in history.
Not long after their tolling stopped, wedding bells were once again heard ringing, their ringing travelling a little farther over the Atlantic this time around. Congratulations are in due course for the happy and newly engaged couple. Whilst we’re happily playing the ‘guess what Meghan will wear on the big day’ game; we’ve already seen her personal style affect a number of fans. Similar to Kate’s blue dress, Meghan’s white ‘engagement announcement’ coat and her designer handbag carried during her first official engagement as a ‘royal’ were sold out in mere minutes. While we’re waiting for the same Kate craze to hit stores, we’ve picked our own ‘royal-worthy’ items from our curated collection. Who says you have to be a princess to dress like one? Side note: These pieces can also double as holiday outfits.
