Whilst reading Vogue’s piece on Meghan Markle’s 2019 Royal Tour of Africa wardrobe it has the Fashion Boundary team feeling inspired. As the article has been circulating the office, summery dresses, chic monochrome outfits and tailored suit dresses are what we know we're going to be seeing as the weather gets warmer.
We’ve decided to put together four looks inspired by The Duchess of Sussex from her 2019 African Royal Tour with Fashion Boundary to make it easy for you to #stealherstyle.
Markle in a sky blue Veronica Beard shirt dress for a visit to the District Six Museum on September 23. Looking lovely in blue, we love that this is a dress the duchess has worn before, stepping out in the piece during the 2018 royal tour for an official engagement in Tonga.

This is a long Victorian style, button up dress in baby blue. It features large puffy sleeves down to the elbow, a low circular neckline and buttons all down the front. The blue belt and buckle brings everything in at the waist, creating a flattering silhouette. Shop here.
The Duchess wore this pared-back, simple, black Everlane jumpsuit to her visit with female entrepreneurs who work in technology at the Woodstock Exchange in Cape Town on September 25. We love this simple look, can be worn dressed up with heels or toned down with white sneakers.

The trousers are made from a hand weaved, raw silk fabric. They have high waist and wide leg. They feature no side seam for a clean look and drape nicely when wearing. The waistband has a comfortable elastic gathering at back. The fabric has a beautiful texture and shine. Shop the trousers here.
Markle wore this navy Aritzia dress to visit local artisan market, Victoria Yards in Johannesburg on September 30. Simple yet chic. Pair with a pair of flats for a comfortable Summer outfit. We love the pop of red, Meghan (or her stylists) have added with the Everlane red flats.
