Meghan Markle's Fashion Sense Seems To Take Cues From This High-Profile Woman

Meghan Markle, the soon-to-be bride of Prince Harry, has become something of a fashion icon ever since getting attention from her high-profile relationship. At first, many wondered if the young actress would take some fashion hints from the Duchess of Cambridge, whose became a fashion icon when she married Prince Phillip.

It doesn't look like their styles are very similar, however. Markle's fashion sense seems to mirror a different well-known woman, who also happens to be involved in politics because it's in the family: Ivanka Trump.

Markle, Middleton and Trump are all closely watched for their fashion sense. Kate's style has an air of conservativeness and tradition, but a modern flair. No matter where she goes, she's always dressed appropriately for the occasion.

Markle seems to be more of a fashion-forward kind of gal, and her look appears to be much more in line with Trump's trademark look: trendy, yet timeless. The two have even been spotted wearing the same Caroline Herrera gown, though it's true that Markle wore it first for the cover of Vanity Fair.

Markle from the start has broken free from the royal family's usual rules and brings her own sense of style to the table. She's worn crossbody bags instead of carrying dainty clutches, and appeared in pants at royal events instead of donning skirts.

Her hair, while gorgeous, is sometimes tossed back in a messy bun while she's running around on more casual days.

The future royal has toned it down a bit since becoming engaged to Harry. Her former Hollywood look was a bit more risqué and she was definitely dolled up in sexier outfits.

But getting engaged to a prince hasn't seemed to stop Markle from showing off her own style sense.

Like Ivanka, she's infused some high-fashion styles into her daily looks, such as trendy knee boots or empowering female pants suits. The clothes are used to make a statement that they are capable women in positions of power, yet still very feminine.

Where Markle and Ivanka don’t seem to agree is politics. Markle has been a very outspoken critic of Ivanka’s father, President Donald Trump, ever since the 2016 election. She’s disagreed with just about every one of his policies.

Ivanka, on the other hand, who once showed some signs of liberal thinking, has pretty much just rolled over when it comes to President Trump. She, and her husband, have been complicit in his administration’s agenda. Because of these vastly different points of view, it’s unlikely you’re ever going to see these two ladies sitting together having tea, or out browsing at high fashion boutiques together.  

Still, fashion-wise, they do have a lot in common. Not only do they both have similar styles, but they both have their own fashion lines. Trump still owns an eponymous fashion line, though she's stepped down and put it into a blind trust while working at her father's White House.

Markle has her own fashion line for Reitman’s, a Canadian retailer.

It’ll be interesting, after the wedding, to see how Markle’s fashion sense continues to evolve as she settles into life as a royal with Harry. Will she and Trump continue to take fashion cues from each other, or will Markle start trending more toward the looks for which Middleton has become famous?
