It’s a busy day in the life of Meghan Markle. Today the duchess stepped out for two events (so far) in two different wardrobes. As Markle is nearing the end of her pregnancy (she’s rumored to be due in April or May), she’s relying on lots of easy dresses and coats, and is still very much devoted to her trusty heels (pumps, in most cases). But that certainly doesn’t mean that she can’t try some of the latest trends. One of the easiest ways to do so is via print, and the particular print Markle chose for the Commonwealth Day service at Westminster Abbey was one that’s undoubtedly a product of the ’80s revival. Markle wore a chain-print dress from Victoria Beckham’s F/W 19 collection, along with a cream-color coat and pill-box hat, and green pumps.
It was Hermès and Versace that really made chain print famous (see the S/S 18 runway proof below, where they officially revived the trend), but over the past year, Zara has really embraced it and made it more accessible. Currently, blouses, blazers, skirts, and scarves abound in the expensive-looking trend, and we’re guessing they might add to their stock even more now that Markle has endorsed the ’80s-inspired look.
