Ever since announcing her engagement to Prince Harry, the world's eyes have been fixed on Meghan Markle — and her style. We'll be following the Meghan Markle Effect with our column, "Meghan Markle Wore a Thing."

It turns out that being a member of the royal family on a royal tour is a lot like being an influencer at fashion week (except — no disrespect to the influencers — much more important): Pack as many outfit changes as there are photo opportunities and try to be strategic about which brands you wear when you wear them, where possible.

At least, that seems to be the task currently taken by Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex, who has worn so many things on her journey through Australia, Fiji, Tonga and now New Zealand with her husband, the Duke of Sussex Prince Harry. On Monday, the Duke and Duchess started their day by meeting with local youths in Wellington, and wouldn't you know it, the Duchess had just the right look for the occasion.

The Duchess went back to her trusty Outland "Harriet" jeans, paired with a black "Twain" sweater from Jac + Jack (shout-out to Meghan's Mirror for identifying even the wardrobe basics!) and Stuart Weitzman's "Veruka" boots. She topped the look with Club Monaco's Ellayne trench — currently sold out, natch, but there's a similar style currently on sale. But our personal favorite touch is the small bouquet of gerbera daisies given to the Duchess by a small child; you can likely find those at your local bodega, or for something longer lasting, in silk at your nearest craft store.
