Do you want to be the best-dressed wedding guest this season? Learn from Meghan Markle.

The Duchess of Sussex, 42, and Prince Harry arrived in Nigeria late last week where they met and talked with schoolchildren at Lightway Academy. For the day abroad, Meghan wore a Heidi Merrick maxi dress that didn’t cut down into a V-neckline or scoop really low. Rather, the $1,350 dress had a higher neckline that would look so classy at any spring nuptials.

To accessorize the A-line gown, she also added a pair of Emma Parsons sandals and some chunky gold earrings. Harry, on the other hand, followed an Oprah-approved styling hack, and sported a monochrome look, minus his shoes.

While she wasn’t actually attending a wedding, her silky spring dress would be good for said celebrations. Along with the high neckline (which she also wore last month), it looked perfectly breezy for outdoor cocktail hours, while the longer length made it more appropriate than a mini dress for any black-tie ceremonies.

Grace Karin Satin A-Line Midi Dress



This satin dress from Grace Karin, which comes in sizes S to XXL, is “soft like butter” and “complements whoever is wearing” it, according to one Amazon shopper who got the dress for free. It shows less skin on the shoulders thanks to the cap sleeves, but shows off your legs a bit more since it’s a midi length that should hit closer to your calves. There’s also an adjustable tie in the front that helps highlight your figure.

Lulus Classic Elegance Blush Satin Sleeveless Mock Neck Maxi Dress



While Meghan’s dress appears to have more of a crew or boat neckline, don’t rule out everything else altogether. This $88 sleeveless dress from Lulus has a mock neck, which won’t cover your entire neck in fabric. Plus, it has breeze in other places, like the two slits on both sides of the legs and the small keyhole in the back. Two sizes in the blush color are already sold out, but it also comes in five others.
