4 Power Dressing Lessons We Learned From Suits Star Meghan Markle

Meghan Markle is trending at the moment thanks to rumors of a romantic relationship with Prince Harry, and while people are delving into her life, reading into her every Instagram message and discussing her suitability as a member of the royal family (chill guys!) we decided we’d look into some of her finer moments as Rachel Zane in our favorite show, Suits.

If you haven’t started watching Suits yet, you definitely should. It’s a legal drama, but it can really teach you a thing or two about being a formidable boss, building relationships with your colleagues and dealing with drama. We love it! Meghan plays Rachel Zane, a paralegal climbing the corporate ladder who knows the importance of power dressing, so here are a few of our favorite outfits . . .

Try Soft Pinks

Soft pinks are often thought of as too feminine for power dressing, but Rachel proves this is not the case. You shouldn’t shy away from wearing the same color top and bottoms, create some contrast by looking for a top with movement that’s a slight variation of the shade of your bottoms – and you’ll nail this look.

A Good Old Pencil Skirt

Don’t knock a good old fashioned pencil skirt, especially in a dependable shade like gray. We often see Rachel wearing a staple skirt with some incredibly beautiful tops and shirts, all you need to do is find one that suits your body shape.

Lace Details

Lace can be classy and make you feel on top of the world if you pick up a beautiful lace detailed skirt all you need to do is pair it with a basic shirt, Rachel usually wears hers with the sleeves rolled up to give an effortless, laidback look.

All White

You don’t have to shy away from white (unless you’re clumsy!), Rachel often wears a fitted skirt and blouse in the same combo. This all-white outfit looks angelic and very chic. Find a shirt with some interesting white details and combine it with a basic skirt and white shoes.
