Meghan Markle Went Shopping in a Strapless Jumpsuit and Toe-Jewelry Sandals

I don’t know about all of you, but I still get a rush seeing Meghan Markle in her new, extremely low-key environment in California. After years of strict dress codes at formal engagements, a sighting that involves the Duchess of Sussex relaxing with friends in what can only be described as “California casual” attire is a breath of fresh air. 

For her most recent outing—a shopping trip around Montecito and Santa Barbara—Markle chose a strapless jumpsuit from Malia Mills, a straw hat from Cuyana, and a dark-green Lauren Ralph Lauren knit tied effortlessly around her shoulders. She finished off the daytime look with a Chloé bucket bag, Valentino sunglasses, and, chicest of all, a pair of flat sandals from Emme Parsons with a loop around the toe adorned with a gold, jewelry-like bauble. Think of the shoes as a modern-day take on the toe ring, just a thousand times more buy-worthy. 

Clearly, the impeccable sense of style Markle displayed back in the UK hasn’t skipped a beat. All it’s done is adjust to her new, more chilled-out surroundings in California. Shop the duchess’s casual-chic footwear style below.

The heeled version of Markle’s flats is equally as tempting. 

I needed a pair of these, like, yesterday.

Nice and lifted.

These are downright gorgeous if you ask me. 

The perfect black strappy heels with a toe-loop twist. 

For every type of occasion.

These are a fashion favorite. 

For all your warm-weather holidays this winter. 

Not all sandals can pull off a gem-embellished toe ring. These can. 

These are giving major ’90s vibes. 

Simply stunning. 

There’s really nothing like a pair of Louboutins. 

Gladiators are back.
