The Duchess' SA fashion: Best and worst looks of Meghan Markle

Meghan Markle has been a powerful presence in Mzansi during the royal tour in Africa - with words of encouragement and an interest in South Africans struggles, we have to admit we're going to miss her.

The Duchess' every move was photographed and she looked stunning fulfilling her duties. However, we loved some of her looks more than others. compiled a list of the former Suits actress' best and worst looks on the royal African tour.

Best Looks:

1. African print wrap dress

On her first day in South African, the Duchess rocked an African print wrap dress by Malawian brand Mayamiko, Times LIVE reported.

The stunning black and white dress allowed Meghan to honour African culture in a subtle, yet respectable manner.

2. Sleeveless jumpsuit

The Duchess looked royal in a sleeveless black jumpsuit - which she wore on her first solo day in Cape Town.

Meghan accompanied the stylish jumpsuit with sleek black heels, golden earrings and a perfectly styled low bun.

3. Casual outfit while honouring Uyinene Mrwetyana

Being a royal does not mean glam all the time. Meghan looked stunning in a white sleeveless blouse and pair of jeans during a trip to honour Uyinene Mrwetyana.

4. Rocking the nude colours

Throughout the tour, Meghan rocked trench dresses in natural colours like the ones she wore to the University of Johannesburg and the final day's meeting with Graça Machel.

On both occasions the Duchess paired the dresses with a nude heel that elongated her toned legs.

Worst Looks:

1. Shoe fail

Like we said, the Duchess looked amazing on the tour but she did make a couple of fashion mishaps that could have been avoided.

While visiting Arch Bishop Desmond Tutu, Meghan wore a light summery dress that looked amazing. However, we do feel the dark navy stilettos threw the look off.

2. Green button-up dress

Meghan wore a green shirt-like dress during her visit with a charity in Johannesburg. The dress looked creased and we personally did not love the shoes with it as well. A pair of wedges in an earthy colour would have fit better than the black pointed heels.

And, although we love the Duchess' hair, we think the outfit would have gone better with a low-bun or a ponytail.
