How Meghan Markle’s Invictus Games outfit nods to her wedding dress

Meghan Markle is keeping the bridal vibes alive.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex traveled to Germany yesterday for the Invictus Games “Dusseldorf 2023 – One Year To Go” launch event, and eagle-eyed royal fashion fans might have noticed Markle’s look was reminiscent of one of her 2018 wedding gowns.

Wearing a white halter-neck sleeveless sweater by Anine Bing ($229), the duchess’ top gave off a similar look as the Stella McCartney dress she wore at the royal wedding reception.

While her boat-necked ceremony gown was a Clare Waight Keller by Givenchy creation, the new duchess chose a sleek, silk crepe Stella McCartney style for the reception that featured a halter neckline resembling her ribbed Anine Bing tank.

Her German trip was a decidedly more casual affair, with the duchess pairing her white halter top with tan wide-legged trousers by Brandon Maxwell ($1,295) and white pumps.

Her accessories for the Invictus event were also much more low-key than the dazzling jewels she sported for her wedding reception, which included Cartier diamond drop earrings and a massive aquamarine ring that belonged to Princess Diana.

In Dusseldorf, she wore simple gold-plated CZ studs by Alexis Bittar ($85) along with Shiffon’s “1972 tennis” diamond pinky ring ($2,580-$2800) stacked with the brand’s “Duet” pinky ring ($300-$855).

She also wore her favorite Cartier watch and the designer’s gold “Love” bracelet, along with a thinner gold bangle.

Earlier this week, the Sussexes attended the One Young World Summit in Manchester, England — with Markle wearing a red suit from Another Tomorrow — and we’ll see one more fashion moment from the duchess tomorrow at the Well Child Awards in London before Meghan and Harry head back to California.
