KEEPING IT ROYAL

Fashion inspo direct from the wardrobes of Kate and Meghan.

Hat? Check. Champagne? Check. Tissues? Check. Are you royal wedding 2018 ready? The big day is here and we are uber excited about the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. Even if our invitation didn’t arrive. (It must be lost in the post – sigh.)

It’s been an exciting month for the Royals, with wedding fever hitting hard and the arrival of Prince Louie to celebrate. With so much royal love in the air, we have been looking back at some of Meghan and soon to be sister-in-law Kate’s hottest style moments. And wow, can these royals rock a dress. Elegant and never over-done, we love how Kate and Meghan mix modern pieces with timeless classics. In fact, all this royal dress-gazing is giving us some serious spring wardrobe inspo. You can rock a royal look too. With Hire That Look, you can channel your inner princess and hire a little luxury for when you need it most.

Today, we want to uncover the style secrets of our favourite duchess and duchess in waiting. Discover our favourite ready to hire dresses inspired by Kate and Meghan, below.

Make Your Markle

Meghan has always been a bit of a fashion VIP even before HRH popped the big question. With a knack for pairing laid back casual with stunning evening wear, she definitely understands how to make a mark on the red carpet.

Nude Ambition

A few months before it was announced that Meghan and Prince Harry were an item she struck a pose in this simple nude bodycon dress at a World Vision event in Toronto. You can create a similar laid-back luxe vibe with our ALICE + OLIVIA Nude Bodycon Kia Dress. This wearable midi-dress is simple, sensuous and includes a cross strap side panel that adds a little something special to your look.

 

Green Goddess

At a recent Invictus Games reception in London, Meghan showed she isn’t afraid to experiment with colour and print, wearing a gorgeous green number form Hire That Look favourite, Self Portrait. Paired with a demure black blazer, it was the perfect choice for a chilly spring day in the capital. And you can recreate this iconic look with a little dress hire fairy dust from HTL. We have this exact dress in stock now, available to hire for just £69.00. Grab this SELF PORTRAIT Floral Crepe Cold Shoulder Midi Dress while it’s hot.  Be quick though as this dress hire is selling out.

 

 

Little Red Dress

Red is a great colour for Meghan, showing off her gorgeous dark locks. She went old-school Hollywood glamour in this red gown during an appearance on The Today Show back in 2016. You can channel this look with one of our favourite LRDs, this SELF PORTRAIT Ruffled Guipere Lace Dress in siren red. You get added royal bonus points as Meghan has previously been spotted wearing this dress in pale blue.

What Kate Wore

Kate is great at English country house chic without ever feeling fussy or dull. Preferring simple shapes and classic colours, she always looks perfectly polished. To add a little Kate to your evening wardrobe, look for simple, silhouette-skimming shapes and jewel tones. 

Buttoned Up Beauty

This emerald green midi-dress was a show stopper during Kate and Will’s tour of Canada. The Dolce & Gabbana midi dress was the perfect look for Kate’s lean figure and, as ever, she kept accessories muted with a simple nude clutch. If you’re a sucker for this gorgeous dress then why not try our romantic, MORV LONDON Green Velvet Hedi Dress. Created in sumptuous green velvet with button detailing and a flattering ‘V’ neckline, you’ll feel every inch the lady.

 

White, Red and Sassy

Kate hit another fashion home run on her Canadian tour with a white dress that was already a style icon. It was the dress she wore during her engagement photo shoot. (Remember, how excited we were for that royal wedding!) This time she went bold, pairing it with a red Canadian maple leaf hat. Well, we all go a little wild when it comes to holiday style! If you love the look of this pure white dress, then this garden of eden dress from our newest designer Atoir could scratch your spring fashion itch. Maple leaf hat entirely optional…

Frozen Inspired

Sometimes you just have to go full princess, and at the Royal Variety Performance in 2017, Kate seemed to be inspired by Disney icon, Elsa. With an icy blue design, embellished with acres of bling, Kate was definitely dressed to impress. If you have an event that you need to shine at, say, oh, a royal wedding, then we have a similarly show-stopping dress that you will love. This FOREVER UNIQUE IDA Embellished Gown feels like a spring update on Kate’s royal look with shimmering crystals in pink and blue.
