This Is How You Wear Denim Like a Royal


From a neutral-nail-polish-only protocol to a strict pantyhose rule, royal style isn’t exactly what we’d call free-spirited. So how do Meg, Kate, and the rest of the noble set get away with wearing (gasp!) jeans? Here are five tried-and-true denim outfit formulas that make the cut – and ways to recreate each one.

Ripped Skinnies + White Button-Front + Tortoiseshell Frames

Proof that ripped skinnies can be sophisticated. Meghan elevates them by wearing a crisp white button-front on top, complete with a French tuck and chic sunglasses for the perfect Sunday outfit.

Skinnies + Stripes + Wedges

Take a cue from Kate and pair your darkest skinny jeans with laid-back stripes and a crisp blazer. Wedges add an extra layer of sophistication, but you could easily swap them for casual flats or trendy ankle boots.

Boyfriend Jeans + Trench Coat + Loafers

If you thought cuffed boyfriend jeans weren’t, well, royal enough for the royals, Lady Violet Manners is here to prove you wrong. She shows us how it’s done by upping the polish with a long trench and leather loafers.

Denim Dress + Heels + Clutch

Think outside of the jeans box and switch things up like Meghan by wearing denim head to toe as a belted midi dress. The dark wash keeps it sleek and regal, and the contrasting accessories are a stylish finishing touch.

Grey Jeans + Red Coat + Knee-High Boots

All of fall’s trends rolled into one look (in the most tasteful way ever, we might add). Grey denim brings a little edge to the duchess’s preppy red coat and knee-high boot combo.
