Ever since Meghan Markle and her now-husband announced their engagement last year, women all over the world have looked to her as a fashion icon. Pieces she wears out in public consistently sell out at an astonishing rate, which has led people to name this phenomenon the “Meghan Markle effect.”
Meghan’s new minimalist approach to dressing probably has much to do with the rules the members of England’s royal family must adhere to, but it’s clear that everyone loves the new wardrobe. Here we break down some of her most-loved jewelry styles, so you can dress like a royal too!
Soon after the birth of the couple’s first child Archie, Meghan was spotted wearing a gold chain necklace sporting the letter A. The daintiness of this piece makes it perfect for everyday wear, and is ideal during the hotter months when statement jewelry pieces are more trouble than they’re worth.
Look to Tacori’s Love Letters collection for sterling silver pendant necklaces you can personalize with your initial or that of a loved one. If personalized jewelry isn’t your thing, the designer also offers many other minimalist styles inspired by the landscape and laidback feel of California.
Cluster Stud Earrings
For occasions where you want to dress up your outfit a little, consider a set of cluster stud earrings for extra sparkle. Choosing a playful design will add personality to your ensemble without being over-the-top, while a more subdued pair emulates the look of a larger stud earring at a smaller price tag.
If this is a style you want to add to your wardrobe, check out KC Designs line of diamond earrings. In addition to artfully arranged diamond clusters in a variety of shapes and designs, the brand also offers simpler sets with diamonds arranged in a mosaic-like fashion.
Classic Diamond Stud Earrings
When classic and simple is the look you’re going for, nothing beats a pair of diamond stud earrings. Hearts on Fire, the creator of “the world’s most perfectly cut diamond,” is the designer to look into for this style. With stud earrings styles ranging from simple diamonds to hearts and stars, the brand has a look for every woman.
Open Gold Rings
Open rings are a relatively new trend, one in which the ring band doesn’t form a closed circle. Instead, the two ends are usually capped with diamonds, gemstones, or another material for a look that bridges the gap between minimalist and statement piece.
Tacori and KC Designs both offer much in terms of this style, and each brand’s design signature makes for some beautiful pieces that would look great in any woman’s wardrobe. Explore Tacori’s selection of open gold rings for chunkier, rounded shapes or KC Designs for stunningly delicate and feminine silhouettes.
Meghan Markle is often seen wearing simple cuffs to adorn her wrists at formal events, dressing up her outfit without going over-the-top. Similar to the open rings we talked about earlier, cuffs encircle the wrist but leave a small opening to slide your wrist in and out with ease. Get this look with Elle jewelry; the brand offers classic designs as well as more avant garde and abstract shapes that flow rather than follow straight lines.
