This is the reason why Meghan Markle wears shoes a size too big. 1
"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."
Davey explains how it works. 2
"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.
A black blazer is her go-to piece. 3
Forget about the pashmina and the played-out jean jacket, take a cue from Meghan's elegant style and wear a cute summer dress with a black blazer. For a more casual look, just drape it over your shoulders, as Meghan did here.

She prefers classic pieces. 16
"I like really classic pieces," she told Glamour. "I also love that French way of styling, where if your outfit is pulled together, then something’s got to be dishevelled--your hair, your make-up."
But she also likes to dress up! 18

"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."
