When Meghan Markle announced her pregnancy back in February there was never any danger of her reaching for the comfort step shoes and slipping on a pair of comfy leggings.
But no one could have predicted quite how influential her maternity style would be.
The Duchess has clocked up an impressive 75 plus maternity outfits to date, experimenting with a selection of new labels, continuing to champion her designer favourites and managing to source a selection of incredible vintage finds.
And even more impressively she’s attended all but one official engagement wearing four inch heels, except for one occasion in Melbourne where she wore a pair of ballet flats to the beach.
Which any mum will tell you is no mean feat.
According to lovethesales.com Meghan’s top brands during her pregnancy have been Aquazzura, Givenchy, Stuart Weitzman and Outland Denim.
Meghan wore the Australian jeans brand six times in the space of one month and according to Vanity Fair the ethical brand saw sales increase by +2,300% with searches for the brand also shooting up +3,000%.
So you can see there’s a serious side to Meghan’s style as she has the influence to boost sales and give small businesses massive exposure.
Thanks to the ‘Meghan maternity effect’ searches for brand Karen Gee shot up by 5,800 per cent, giving the designer a global reach she would probably never achieved without the influence of the Duchess.
The designer’s website crashed after the Duchess wore her bespoke ‘Blessed’ shift dress.
“It’s an absolute honor to have Meghan wear our dress,” Gee told BAZAAR.com.
“The fact that she could choose anyone in the world and she’s chosen Karen Gee on her first day is phenomenal.”
Mum-of-five Karen added: “The purpose of the brand is to encourage women to feel good no matter what size and shape they are.
“I truly believe Meghan is empowering because she is confident, backs herself—and who doesn’t love her?”
When Meghan was spotted wearing a pair of Veja V-10 trainers during the royal tour of Australia searches for ‘Veja sneakers’ went up by 300% overnight.
It’s no coincidence they’re now one of the most popular and fashionable trainer brands.
Lovethesales.com have also reported her most liked outfit was the black one shoulder Givenchy gown she wore to the Fashion Awards in December which received over 356K likes online.
Another favourite was the golden Dior gown she wore to a state dinner in Morocco on February 24 which received 287,000 likes.
Her least liked outfit was a Givenchy semi see through sweater and skirt worn in October, which received only 39,000 likes, still not to be sniffed at.
Meghan, 37, has incredible style so it’s not surprising she’s aced maternity chic.
But her love of fashion has meant she’s tackled maternity style with a fresh approach and there are some simple style tips we can all learn from.
Here’s how to steal her maternity style.
