Meghan Markle Wore the '80s Trend Zara Made Famous Again

It’s a busy day in the life of Meghan Markle. Today the duchess stepped out for two events (so far) in two different wardrobes. As Markle is nearing the end of her pregnancy (she’s rumoured to be due in April or May), she’s relying on easy dresses and coats and is still very much devoted to her trusty heels (pumps, in most cases). And, as always, she’s still injecting the latest trends into her regal wardrobe. One of the easiest ways to do so is via print, and the particular pattern Markle chose for the Commonwealth Day service at Westminster Abbey is undoubtedly a product of the recent ’80s revival. Markle wore a chain-print dress from Victoria Beckham’s A/W 19 collection, along with a cream coat, pillbox hat and green pumps.

Hermès and Versace really made chain print famous (see the S/S 18 runway proof below from when they officially revived the trend), but over the past year, Zara has really embraced it and made it more accessible. Currently, blouses, blazers, skirts, and scarves abound in the expensive-looking trend, and we’re guessing the retailer might add to its stock even more now that Markle has endorsed the ’80s-inspired look.
