In support of the Women’s Fund of Central Indiana, Meghan Markle visited Indianapolis to participate in an inspiring chat centered around investing in women and empowering young girls. In favor of Nov. 29, two days before Netflix released first teaser trailer to “Harry & Meghan,” The Duchess of Sussex wore a chic emerald green dress by Giorgio Armani to speak with Rabbi Sandy Sasso in a moderated discussion. The knee-length number came with a twisted keyhole detail at the front and long sleeves in jersey fabric, which she paired with Manolo Blahnik pumps in suede in light purple.

As Markle’s style choices often do, the combination of green and purple can hold something special
sartorial significance. As originally reported by
Page six, the colors, in addition to white, represent the suffragettes at the Women’s Sunday in June 1908. Purple stood for loyalty, green symbolized hope, and white meant purity. Her curated look likely speaks to her support of the women’s foundation’s mission and event.

That mother of two often uses color to send subtle messages through her clothes. Over the years, red in particular has become a powerful color for Markle. After stepping back from her royal duties, she returned to the red carpet at the Salute to Freedom Gala in November 2021, in a Carolina Herrera dress in the lively shade. Recently she wore head to toe red again in a set of portraits with Prince Harry, taken on One Young World Summit opening ceremony. That “Archetypes” host dressed in a long-sleeved blouse with a scarf draped over the shoulder, with straight-leg trousers for the pictures.
