Meghan Markle back to wearing sleeveless trench dresses
Meghan Markle was spotted wearing a sleeveless trench dress after seeing her mostly wearing British labels since her wedding in May 2018.
The Duchess of Sussex had been donning outfits designed by British designers throughout her tour of Ireland. Although, on July 17th, she went back to wearing a Canadian brand like she used to.
The trench dress, which was from a budding Canadian label called NONIE, brought back Markle’s edgier look.
Since moving to London in the fall of 2017, the Duchess’ fashion choices had changed from casual and edgy to more formal and classier looks, which suits her new role as the newest member of the Royal Family.

Markle stepped out wearing the edgy ensemble with Prince Harry for an exhibition in honor of the celebration of Nelson Mandela’s birth.
Nina Kharey, the founder and creative director of NONIE, spoke to People about seeing her design being worn by the former actress. She said she was very excited to see Markle wearing the piece with such “elegance and grace.”
“Her continuous support of Canadian brands is remarkable, and it is a true honor to be the first Canadian based ready-to-wear designer she has worn since her wedding earlier this year,” she added.
As revealed by the publication, Markle had already worn the $825 button-down dress, which was from NONIE’s Spring/Summer 2018 collection. Markle purchased it while living in Toronto.

The Duchess paired the tan-colored trench dress with a matching clutch and heels. Her makeup was minimal, and she only wore simple stud earrings. Finishing off the look, she wore her dark hair in her signature messy bun.
As for Prince Harry, he wore a gray suit jacket and casual pants.
