Meghan Markle's Sleeveless Turtleneck In A Call With Malala Yousafzai Turns Heads

The royal shared her outfit and her views on girls' education over Zoom.

Leave it to fashion icon Meghan Markle to turn even the most bewildering of clothing items into a fall fashion trend.

Google searches for “sleeveless turtlenecks” saw a noticeable spike, after the Duchess of Sussex wore a black knit sleeveless turtleneck in a Zoom interview with activist Malala Yousafzai on Sunday.

The Sussex royals united with Yousafzai for an eye-opening conversation on International Day of the Girl, which covered girls’ education and how their family has spent time together throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

The bold look, which she’s rocked in 2018 with a similar turtleneck, caused a stir among Royal Family fans who adored Meghan’s professional aesthetic.

Among the fashion-forward, Meghan received nods of approval for figuring out a use for a clothing item that calls for bare arms and cosy necks.

If you’re looking to replicate Meghan’s ensemble, you’ll need cash to spare as it costs around $306 from designer brand Annie Bing. But if you don’t have a royal bank account, round-ups by outlets like People show that more affordable dupes are available.

Loving Meghan’s turtleneck? Her other autumn outfits have been just as stunning. Story continues after the slideshow.

And luckily, it’s possible to follow in Meghan’s footsteps in other ways: As big fans of Malala’s organization, the Malala Fund, Meghan and Harry are asking viewers of the conversation to “join them in helping girls continue to learn during and after COVID-19.”
