On September 16, the Duchess of Sussex attended the sporting event’s closing ceremony wearing a $798 Cult Gaia strapless tube dress that plays into some of the season’s sexiest trends while remaining appropriate for fancy client dinners. Though 100% polyester, the Raylene Gown—which is, unfortunately, sold out on the brand’s website—has a leathery appearance with lazercut floral cutouts. Though that might sound too risqué for drinks with the boss, the thigh-length underlayer leaves just enough to the imagination.
Dare I say it, with Meghan Markle’s slick bun, nude pumps, and classic smoky eye, this ’fit could also serve as major bridal party inspo—if you’re still doing all of that. Luckily, a shorter version of the dress with ’90s-inspired spaghetti straps is still available for $495 in the same color, as well as a more bridal white. Can anyone say reception outfit change?
After a week of linen rompers, structured layers, and monochrome ’fits, I couldn’t think of a better conclusion to Meghan Markle’s week of covetable fashion moments, which resulted in a J.Crew website crash and a mad rush to sell out Banana Republic shirt dresses. Thank you, Meghan Markle, but it’s time for our wallets to take their lunch break.
