Last summer, it was revealed that Meghan Markle was the surprise guest editor of Vogue‘s prestigious September Issue – a role she took on while pregnant with her son Archie, completing the work secretly during her maternity leave.
The issue, dubbed ‘Forces For Change’, featured an impressive line-up of 15 inspiring women of all ages, races and backgrounds hand-picked by the Duchess of Sussex alongside the magazine’s editor-in-chief, Edward Enninful. And while we couldn’t take our eyes off the powerful cover, there was another thing that caught our attention shortly after: Meghan’s outfit.
It is no secret that Meghan is a global style icon, and rightly so, because she never disappoints. And this occasion was no exception, as her black sleeveless jumpsuit was quickly identified by eagle-eyed fans as a sleek, eternally wearable design from American retailer Everlane.
The brand is a favourite among the A-list, and known for making timeless garments that you’ll put out again and again: ‘At Everlane, we’re not big on trends. We want you to wear our pieces for years, even decades, to come,’ it explains on its website. ‘That’s why we source the finest materials and factories for our timeless products.’
Meghan’s black jumpsuit, with an elegant double-V neckline neck, easy wide legs, and a removable tie belt to create a more feminine silhouette, is certainly a prime example of this classic, comfortable styling – and now you can get your hands on it for even less.
Thanks to a promotion on the Everlane website right now offering 25 per cent off everything, the Japanese GoWeave Essential Jumpsuit made famous by royalty is now £74, down from its original RRP of £98.
If you’re more inclined to get a little more colour in your wardrobe as we approach the warmer months, you can also get the fit in a pretty dusty blue for the same new low price.
So, for those missing their royal fashion fix since Meghan and Prince Harry’s decision to step back from their official roles, the jumpsuit is currently one of the most affordable ways to get a duchess-approved look on a budget.
We’re ordering ours now before the rest of Meghan’s fans beat us to it.
