Meghan Markle is now a podcast host with her and Prince Harry’s multi-year Spotify deal coming to fruition this week. As the Duchess of Sussex promotes the new series, a string of style moments comes with the release of “Archetypes”.
In a recent video posted on the Spotify Instagram account, Markle is seen wearing a smart and stylish outfit. Composed of a classic striped tie-neck blouse in warm browns and neutral tones and Anne Bing’s tan Ellis trousers, the office-ready outfit is a style lesson in transitioning from summer to fall. Markle rocked a necklace and left the blouse undone above for a more relaxed yet professional look, finishing her ensemble with tan pumps, sweet gold studs, her Cartier tank watch and love bracelet, and pink, soft-glam makeup.
The Duchess’s elegant top is reminiscent of Maeve, the anthropologist’s clothing line that references a purple flower, a Greek goddess and an Irish warrior queen, with Markle’s strikingly similar to the $120 retail.
Her business-oriented outfit is a departure from the look she adopted on her podcast’s cover art, which features the mother of two posing against a gray background in a white ribbed tank top. The pared-down, minimal portrait serves to highlight the content of her podcast, which will tackle stereotypes about women, at once a stripped-back and authentic conversation.
For the first episode, Markle interviewed her friend and Vogue’s September cover star Serena Williams about her ambitions. “Oftentimes women are necessarily put into these different boxes when we’re ambitious or when we have goals or when we reach our goals,” Williams said during the recording. “It’s a negative perception of how we can reach the goal.” Needless to say, it’s absolutely worth a listen.
Ahead, admire the video promo, as well as Markle’s stunning cover portrait, and recreate her tie-neck blouse moment.
