Meghan Markle Wears Braided Flats & Denim on the Beach in South Africa

Even when she’s just wearing denim and flats, Meghan Markle knows how to put together a stylish look.

The Duchess of Sussex dressed down Tuesday for a visit to Monwabisi Beach in Cape Town, South Africa. She sported a Madewell denim jacket with a J.Crew button-down and black skinny jeans.

For footwear, the former “Suits” star went with flats from Brother Vellies. She selected woven brown leather sandals made in Michoacán, México. The shoe, a version of the traditional Mexican huarache, is available on the brand’s site for just under $200.

Founded by Aurora James and based in New York, Brother Vellies was a fitting choice for Markle’s royal tour of Africa. James aims to widen the reach of African footwear with the brand, while also employing artisans across the continent.

“I think that working with artisans across Africa has been really grounding for me because it does make me understand the scale of the issues that I’m having,” James told FN.

Markle completed her look with a Madewell canvas tote bag ($78 on Shopbop.com) and Jennifer Meyer jewelry.

The Northwestern alum has worn Brother Vellies before. She selected the same huaraches in July on a casual outing to a polo match in Wokingham, U.K., alongside sister-in-law Kate Middleton.
