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."

On Friday, the Duchess of Sussex joined young leaders who are driving meaningful change at a roundtable discussion on gender equality with The Queen's Commonwealth Trust and One Young World at Windsor Castle. 

Wearing a burgundy leather BOSS pencil skirt with a crimson-colored deep V-neck pullover by Joseph, the Duchess arrived at the event with Prince Harry, who had not been billed to attend. The Duchess leaned heavily into fall trends with this skirt-and-sweater combo. The mid-length skirt, which is available for $595, encapsulates the richness of the season with its ruby hue and the luxe look of the lambskin leather. The sleek cashmere knit (shop here) boasts a deep V-neck — a popular neckline this autumn and one that is giving its circular counterpart a run for its money. 

The Duchess rounded out this cool-weather look with custom Sarah Flint suede pumps (purchase similar ones here) in a cabernet shade, proving she is a master at tonal dressing. The sartorial lesson to be learned here is that mixing different textures and fabrics will add contrast and depth to a monochromatic ensemble.
