It is no secret that here at Who What Wear we are in love with the personal styles of Meghan Markle and Anna Wintour. Whether the Duchess of Sussex is photographed during a tour through Morocco or the editor-in-chief of Vogue during a fashion week as we walk the streets, we quickly take style notes when these fashion icons get off in front of the cameras.
Although it is clear that Markle and Wintour each have their own different styles, we have noticed a few important pieces that are essential in both wardrobes. First, there are the trench coats, the timeless outerwear that is, perhaps, the most difficult to use pieces in both respective tailor’s wardrobe. Then there are the sunglasses, also known as the trademark accessory of the editor in chief of Vogue, which the duchess is just as fond of.
Do you want to know with which other wardrobe basics Markle and Wintour go by and how they style these styles? Keep scrolling to find out and shop the essentials that these style icons carry over and over again.
Classic Trench Coats
When it comes to outerwear, both Markle and Wintour are known for their timeless basic wardrobe: a classic trench coat. The versatile staple is the perfect lightweight laminated piece for transition periods, as the style icons show below.

Nude Pointed-Toe Pumps
If we have learned something from the style that Markle and Wintour stole, it is that a pair of naked pumps is worth investing in. The duchess wears them so often that we are her favorite shoes and, although the in-chief Vogue editor often gets off in her signature velcro sandals, neutral pumps are also clearly a staple in her shoe cabinet.
The modest zoom line is a favorite of both Markle and Wintour. Whether they attend a wedding or go to the fashion week, the Duchess and the editor-in-chief of the Vogue are known to wear a midi dress almost every occasion.
This “boring” basis gives every look an enormous amount of shine, as evidenced by the looks of Markle and Wintour below. If anyone can provide convincing evidence for this often overlooked item of clothing, it is the impossible chic duchess and the always impeccably dressed Vogue editor.
