Meghan Markle brought her sharp style to the racetrack on Sunday, cheering on Prince Harry at a polo match in Santa Barbara, Calif.
For the occasion, the “Bench” author arrived in a black and white polka-dot blouse with a bow-accented triangular neckline and cuffed sleeves. Tying her look together was a pair of white high-waisted shorts. Diamond stud earrings and a wide-brimmed black woven sun hat, similar to those worn in derby attire for decades, completed her ensemble. She also donned a pair of black sunglasses during the event.
Due to her outfit’s black-and-white palette and polka-dotted print, Markle also appeared to take style cues from Audrey Hepburn in “My Fair Lady” and Julia Roberts in “Pretty Woman” — two of the most iconic fashion moments from horse racing scenes in cinema.
Though her footwear wasn’t fully visible, Markle donned a pair of coordinating pumps by Aquazzura. Her now sold-out Savoy style featured a pointed-toe silhouette crafted from black suede, which included curved paneling in a light nude mesh. The pair was complete with 4.13-inch stiletto heels for a sleek finish, which further complemented Markle’s ensemble’s neutral tones and geometric shapes.
This isn’t the first occasion the “Suits” actress has worn the pair from the Florence-based luxury brand, either. Previously, she slipped on the same style to visit London’s New Zealand House and honor the victims of the Christchurch mosque attacks in 2019.
During the match for his team Los Padres, Prince Harry was also sharply outfitted in a dark green riding shirt with white trousers and black riding boots.
Later on, he swapped the racing attire for a white polo and jeans with gray New Balance sneakers, a silver cuff bracelet and gray baseball cap, creating a monochrome look that mirrored Meghan’s color palette.
One of Markle’s go-to shoe styles is pointed-toe pumps, which she wears in neutral and tonal hues from Jimmy Choo, Manolo Blahnik, Aquazzura and more top labels. When off-duty, her streamlined, versatile style also incorporates Valentino flats, Nike sneakers and Hunter boots.
