Meghan Markle’s rule-breaking dress is back in stock

Remember the first dress Meghan Markle wore as a royal, to attend a garden party celebrating Prince Charles’ 70th birthday at Buckingham Palace?

Let me refresh your memory then: it was a nude number by British brand Goat, and got everyone talking as it featured a sheer neckline and sleeves – which is quite unusual when you think about how many sartorial rules there are. It was also a bit controversial at the time, as Meghan wore tights, which the internet just wasn’t happy about.

Anyway, at the time, it sold out within minutes (the Meghan Markle effect was born), and Goat has finally restocked its Flavia dress.

It comes in the nude colour that the Duchess wore, but also in a chic black colour that will be perfect come party season.

You’ll have to be quick if you want to get your hands on the dress though, as it’s while stocks last, and no word yet as to whether they will restock it again.

Brings a whole new urgency to the old ‘you snooze, you lose’ adage.
