From chic outfits and gorgeous handbags and hats to her collection of pointy pumps, Meghan's style is elegant without being too over the top. She knows what she likes and what she doesn't.

Meghan has some wardrobe staples, such as oversized coats and sheath dresses, and she always gives her own touch of glam to her look. She is never overdone, but always impeccably put-together with a beautiful natural look. That natural look goes from her makeup, which is naturally nude chic, to her clothes, which are always minimal and classic.

Meghan is not only an icon of fashion, but also of beauty. Her hair always looks flawless, whether she's wearing it in a messy bun or rocking some gorgeous beachy waves. We're not sure how she does it, but we're sure it's not as carefree as it seems. Regardless, she's showing us how to do understated perfection with style. Here are some of the style lessons ww have learned from Prince Harry's wife.

"Celebs often go a size up, or even two, in the shoe department when they're at an event or on the red carpet, and it's for one reason we can all relate to: to avoid blisters," fashion expert Harriet Davey told The Sun. "There's nothing worse than uncomfortable shoes (we've all been there on a night out) and when celebs like Meghan are wearing heels for a long period of time their feet can often swell up."

"A trick of the trade is to stuff the toe with padding like tissue or cotton wool, and this can be taken out once they feel like they need a bit more room in their shoes," she said.

"Even though things look amazing on the hanger, it doesn't mean they're going to look amazing on me," she told Glamour. "For example, I love Victoria Beckham dresses, but I don't have the long torso to support that silhouette."

She also told MatchesFashion.com, "Wear what makes you comfortable, and isn’t going to make you cringe in three years when you see the photo."
