“Are we covering Meghan over the weekend?” Lorenzo asked Saturday morning. “Only if she gives us something to work with,” Tom replied. SPOILER: She didn’t give us much to work with.
This is not a criticism, of course. She’s not a working royal, and the Invictus Games don’t call for much fashion-wise. There’s no point in comparing his style to Kate’s anymore because they’re each on completely different trajectories, fulfilling completely different roles. We assumed their SoCal lifestyle and Netflix deal would see the Sussexes attend glamorous Hollywood events at some point, but it really does feel like they’re both no longer in the dresses life. and tiaras, if they ever were. Still, it’s a really cute daytime look. I love this jacket paired with slightly faded jeans.
We’re sorry today that we didn’t like this look at all. Such a picky and voluminous neckline does not require fitted high-waisted pants with flares. The proportions seem far to us. She sticks pretty closely to her all-neutral public style — a bit too tightly, we think. She comes to life in bright colors and prints but she hardly ever wears them, which is so strange to us.
To Brandon Maxwell
If there’s going to be a definable SoCal Sussex style going forward, we suspect it’ll be the jeans and jacket look she pulls off so well. It suits her very well and ticks two of her style boxes: neutral and belted.
