In a page taken directly from the pages of The Princess Diaries, Megan Markle has undergone something of a transformation in 2018. Markle’s princess training, which began before she became a member of the Royal Family, continues as she navigates the treacherous waters of Royal Protocol. Adjusting to her high-profile position and official duties can’t be easy! But, Markle has quickly adapted to a long list of etiquette rules, such as curtsying to higher-ranking royals, sitting with a poised “duchess slant,” and refraining (mostly) from hugs in public.
Luckily, many of the Royal Protocol dictates are not nearly so onerous. In fact, Markle’s transformation from glamorous Hollywood celebrity, to elegant and gracious member of the Royal Family, has been nudged along by some of these very rules! For example, women in the Royal Family wear hats on all official occasions. And, sleek nude stockings (even in the summer) are a must.
Want Markle’s look? Berkshire Hosiery makes it easy, even in the summer.
Summer Hosiery Solution: Breathable Thigh Highs
For Markle, sweating through the waist of constricting pantyhose on the banks of the Thames at the Henley Royal Regatta or during the races at Royal Ascot is unthinkable. And, if you have outdoor summer weddings or garden parties planned this summer, Berkshire Hosiery’s Thigh Highs offer a perfect summer hosiery solution. Light and breathable thigh-highs provide sheer, seamless leg coverage. But, the simple banded top gently grips thighs with a textured inner surface. They are so easy and so comfortable.
These are available in four sizes and 10 beautiful shades. But, here’s a cost-saving, side benefit that I’ve found. Buy in multiples. If you run one, simply pair with another in the same color! Retail $5.95.
Summer Hosiery Solution: Open Toed Stockings
For Markle, open toes (stockings or no) are a big no-no. And, if you looked closely during the Royal Wedding, you would have noticed that closed toed pumps ruled the day.
Since I don’t have to follow Royal Protocol, I recently invested in a pair of stunning open toed shoes for work. My simple fix? Berkshire’s smart summer hosiery solution for peep toed shoes: Hose without Toes! These stockings have a thong style foot. So, you can embrace those open toed shoes, show off the perfect pedicure, and still have the silky sheer coverage that only stockings provide.
Available in four great neutrals (including “royal” nude) and five different sizes. Retail $7.95.
