Meghan Markle’s Little Black Dress


I will never stop hyping little black dresses. But even better than itty bitty black dresses are powerful black dresses, ones that you can wear to work, then out, and then to a London Women’s Empowerment reception when you are a princess-to-be.

Meghan Markle’s power dress is the Black Halo Jackie O Dress, which designer Lauren Berman created in 2006 after her go-to high-waisted pencil skirt and silk cami look always came untucked when she sat down. The dress, which retails for $375, comes in black (obviously) and also eight other colors, like red and eggplant, navy and tan. Also? It goes up to a size 18.

The Black Halo Jackie O dress is luxe gabardine, with a draped asymmetrical neckline, squared cap sleeves, a pencil length skirt, and leather belted waist. Markle wore it with strappy black heels, others before her have opted for a peeptoe. Markle, of course, wasn’t the first celebrity to appreciate the insane versatility of the Jackie O dress.

In 2013, the Wall Street Journal wrote about the longevity of the Jackie O dress: “At around $375, the dress is calibrated to attract a fashion-oriented consumer but not at a scary luxury-designer price. It appeals to working women, in part because the neckline doesn’t reveal cleavage and the below-knee length is office-appropriate.” At that time, Black Halo had sold more than 50,000 Jackie O dresses. After today? We’re guessing they’re sure to hit 100,000.
