This Zara blazer will help you channel your inner Meghan Markle

Ever since she joined the royal family, Meghan Markle has become a style icon in her own right. When she isn’t giving us sleek chignon inspiration or showing us how to wear minimalist jewellery, she’s bringing back classic fashion trends – namely, the Bardot neckline (or the Meghan neckline, as it’s quickly becoming known).

We saw it on her wedding day earlier this year with her beautiful custom-made ivory dress designed by British fashion icon, Clare Waight Keller, then again at her first post-wedding event, when she wore a stunning dress by Carolina Herrera to Trooping the Colour, pictured above.

Now, it looks like high street retailers have been taking note, with Zara among the first to take inspiration from Meghan’s wardrobe for their new designs. The popular Spanish brand has just launched a open neckline blazer, and it looks almost identical to the Duchess of Sussex’s famous Carolina Herrera number.

It may come in a bright red colour as opposed to delicate blush pink, but the fold of the top is the same as Meghan’s – not to mention the chunky buttons down the front.

Priced at £69.99, the blazer is exactly what you need to channel your inner Meghan Markle. Not only is it chic, on-trend and perfect for the upcoming festive season (yes, Christmas really is just around the corner), it’s sure to get you the royal seal of approval.

This week, it was announced that Meghan’s wedding dress would be put on display at the Windsor Castle alongside Prince Harry’s suit.

The news broke on Twitter when the official Kensington Palace Twitter accounted tweeted: ‘The wedding outfits of The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will go on display at Windsor Castle in 2018 and the Palace of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh in 2019 in a special @RCT exhibition “A #RoyalWedding: The Duke and Duchess of Sussex”‘.

We can’t wait to see it in person!
