Meghan Markle Just Wore a Pair of Skinny Jeans With the Most Amazing Story

Today Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are visiting Cardiff in Wales and she has—three official visits in—already adopted the royal art of referencing her visit via her outfit. Meghan is wearing a pair of £195 black skinny jeans by a Welsh denim brand called Hiut denim, which has an amazing local backstory. The brand's factory is based in a small town in Wales called Cardigan, where 400 of the 4000 town residents once worked in the denim factory for three decades, making 35,000 jeans a week for M&S. The factory closed when M&S took its production overseas in 2002, however a local couple called David and Claire Hieatt launched their own brand Hiut Denim in 2012 to bring manufacturing back to Cardigan. 

Meghan paired her black classic skinny jeans with a black coat by Stella McCartney with a statement tie at the waist and a pair of black ankle boots by Tabitha Simmons. She then added colour to her all-black look with her handbag, as she carried a green mini top-handle bag by the affordable designer handbag brand Demellier London. At £295 we have a feeling this Mini Venice bag will feel the benefits of the Meghan effect. Keeps scrolling to see and shop Meghan's latest look.
