Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have graced the streets of New York City once again after an absence of over five months. The couple's recent outing to the World Mental Health Day Festival not only emphasized their dedication to their Archewell Foundation and parenting roles but also shed light on the couple's distinctive fashion choices, with Meghan, in particular, turning heads.

At age 42, the Duchess of Suss*x confidently took center stage in an elegantly tailored white off-the-shoulder blazer paired with coordinating wide-legged pants, both designed by renowned New York brand Altuzarra. While the pants maintained a minimalist appeal with their gentle flare, it was the jacket that drew the most attention.

Instead of a conventional lapel, Meghan's blazer showcased a unique fold-over detail that seamlessly transitioned into two buttons down its front. This unique design was completed with two symmetrical pockets and a tasteful center slit.

She paired this look with sophisticated suede heels, subtle jewelry, and her hair fashioned in a trendy high-low bun.

Meghan's Consistent Style Evolution

Meghan’s fashion choice aligns seamlessly with her penchant for a luxurious yet understated style.

In fact, observers pointed out that she had previously donned a similar design in dress form approximately a year ago. Rewinding to last December, the Suss*x duo had another New York appearance dedicated to promoting mental health initiatives.

For this event, Meghan sported a Louis Vuitton dress, mirroring the distinct folded, off-the-shoulder neckline she embraced at Tuesday's festival. These recent style choices follow closely on the heels of their trip to Germany for the Invictus Games.

There, Meghan's diverse wardrobe ranged from casual J.Crew sweaters to the more festive Cult Gaia dresses. It's worth noting that this NYC visit marks the couple's first return since their attendance at the Women of Vision Awards in May.

During that event, Meghan notably wore a flashy jacquard dress by Johanna Ortiz, a stark contrast to her understated Altuzarra outfit. It's clear: whenever Meghan and Harry land in New York, the fashion world takes notice. The Duchess, with her signature style, never fails to impress, blending classic elegance with contemporary flair.
