Middleton often sticks to her favorite shoe and apparel silhouettes — opting for nude or black pumps for formal occasions, as well as wedges and other looks for casual outings. Meanwhile, Markle favors pointed-toe pumps and strappy sandals on the red carpet, but when she’s on the run, she wears comfy boots or flats.
If the women have a tete-a-tete, it’s possible that they might find some inspiration in each other’s style.
In fact, the brunettes made public appearances in head-to-toe looks that matched in color and style only one month apart. Markle made a red-hot entrance in a bold, flared dress that was teamed with a pair of nude pumps in July while attending an event in New York City. In August, Middleton stepped out in the same color palette, complementing her red outfit with a pair of nude pumps, too.
The cut-out detail dress trend didn’t escape Middleton and Markle in 2013. The Duchess of Cambridge rocked simple black pumps with a laser-cut dress in November — only two months after Markle stepped out in a similar outfit that she paired with gold sandals.
In July, Middleton shared a style seen on Markle when she posed for publicity shots to promote her “Suits” series in 2011; both women had on striking blue dresses that cut above the knee, with neutral pumps.
