Meghan Markle Recycles Blue Shift Dress & Affordable Wedges on Cape Town Trip

She may be royalty, but Meghan Markle still loves to rewear favorite pieces.

The Duchess of Sussex plucked a blue Veronica Beard shift dress from her closet to wear today while visiting the District 6 Museum in Cape Town, South Africa.

For footwear, Markle selected another old favorite: Castañer’s Carina espadrille wedges. The Carina has a black canvas upper, a 3-inch wedge heel and a ribbon tie detail at the ankle. It’s available to purchase on Net-a-Porter.com for just $120.

When the duchess first wore her Veronica Beard dress, on an October trip to Tonga, she styled it with completely different footwear. Rather than going for summery footwear, Markle selected baby blue pumps from American retailer Banana Republic.

Like sister-in-law Kate Middleton, Markle often recycles favored pieces for public appearances, from clothing to shoes and other accessories.

The former “Suits” star proved the versatility of her accessibly priced Castañer wedges today, wearing them with two dresses.
