Meghan Markle has been relying on this style trick to make her look sexy and appropriate, say fashion experts.

The Duchess of Sussex is a huge fan of boat neckline, and she has worn it during various occasions in the past couple of months. Last week, Markle wore three dresses that featured the boat neckline. One of them was the Ralph Lauren olive green attire she wore to Prince Louis’ christening.

During her trip to Dublin, Ireland with Prince Harry, Markle was once again spotted wearing a dress with the same neckline. Her grey attire was designed by Roland Mouret.

Fashion experts said that Markle’s go-to neckline allows her to look sexy while following royal protocol. Lucas Armitage, a stylist, told the Daily Mail, “The boat neck in an often overlooked neckline in fashion, it’s safe to say it’s not one overlooked by Meghan. I think it’s her way of respecting royal tradition but wanting to appear slightly uncovered and still a little sexy.”

“Royal protocol means necklines must be quite covered so a boat neckline is a clever way of being revealing but not actually showing any cleavage or arms. It has become her signature look and one that shows her amazing figure off to perfection,” Armitage added.

Alexandra Fullerton, a stylist and brand consultant, also talked about Markle’s fashion choice.

“Meghan is putting her own demure but modern spin on the now ubiquitous Bardot neckline, which continues to dominate the high street. The shoulder is this year’s hottest erogenous zone – thanks to the Bardot – and the Duchess of Sussex’s adoption of the boat neckline cements this,” Fullerton said.

“It also feels a little bit sexy as there is more skin on show than a crew neck, and slightly subversive as it looks fresher than a V-neck, and reiterates her modern royal style. The actual shape makes her already elegant neck looks positively swan-like, and puts the focus on her face,” she added.
