8. The Navy Coat

Kate Middleton made fashionable outerwear the next must-have trend, but with all the cold winters working on Suits in Toronto, Meghan Markle has proved to have quite the impressive coat collection as well! Kate stepped out in 2016 to attend a service at St. Paul’s Cathedral wearing a trapeze-cut coat that cinched in at the waist to flatter her pregnant figure! The coat had structured, blazer-style lapels and she paired the look off with a beret, navy clutch and sleek low bun.

Markle took on an edgier vibe with her navy coat and paired it with leather leggings, a bold red pout and glossy side swept curls. The wrap-style coat featured a chunky belt detailing that flattered her waist and similar lapel detailing to Middleton’s navy garment. Who does navy outerwear better — Middleton or Markle?

7. The Belted Look

Both Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle are fans of belting their flowy dresses, but the question is — who styles a belt better? Back in 2015 Kate Middleton visited the Anna Freud Centre in London wearing a checkered knee length dress that buttoned down the front and added a thin leather belt to cinch in the waist. She paired the dress with black pumps and a matching clutch and topped the look off with dainty pearl earrings.

Meghan Markle is also a fan of belted dresses but opted for a much edgier version of this look with the chunky black belt layered on top of a brocade-style midi dress that featured pleats at the bottom. Markle sleeked back her hair in a polished updo and wore no jewelry to really show off the belt. Who wore the look better?
