2019 has been a big year for the Duchess of Sussex, who not only welcomed her first child with Prince Harry in early May, but also completed two international royal tours (including a 10-day one in Africa with a newborn and up to four engagements a day!), guest-edited British Vogue, gave countless speeches on gender equality, launched her own fashion capsule, met a number of high-profile dignitaries and took a firm stand against the media, all with her own style.
And it's clear why the duchess was named the year's most powerful dresser. Her style may not always be in line with royal tradition, but no matter the engagement — no matter if it's a high-end designer or more affordable retailer — the duchess wears her outfits with conviction. 2019 was her year — and we can't wait to see what she wears next.

Jan. 14, 2019
The Duchess of Sussex kicked off one of her first engagements of the year with a visit to Merseyside's Birkenhead to meet with local organizations and charities.
The mom-to-be made quite an entrance for the occasion, ditching her go-to navy and black ensembles in favor of a bright purple Artiza Babaton Maxwell Dress ($50, but sold out) which she paired with a bright red Sentaler coat (a shorter version which is on sale for $1,095), Stuart Weitzman "Leigh" pumps (40 percent off right now) and a brown leather bag by designer Gabriela Hearst.

To celebrate one of her four new patronages, the Duchess of Sussex paid a visit to Mayhew, an animal-based charity in London.
For the occasion, the duchess opted for a tight, turtleneck maternity dress from budget-friendly H&M (it's on sale for $10!), which she wore underneath a cashmere Armani coat (on sale for $1400). She accessorized the look with the Stella McCartney Falabella Mini Reversible Shaggy Deer Tote Bag ($1145 at Neiman Marcus) and nude heels.

Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry stepped out to watch a special performance of the Cirque du Soleil's show "Totem" at the iconic Royal Albert Hall in London as part of Prince Harry's organization Sentebale, which he established in 2006 to raise funds and awareness about the HIV epidemic.
To mark the occasion, the mom-to-be opted for a sparkly navy blue number by designer Roland Mouret (it was on sale for $3357 at Orchard Mile, but is currently out of stock), Stuart Weitzman's "Nudist" heels in Black (on sale for $330 at Zappos) and Givenchy satin clutch, along with a gold bracelet that reportedly once belonged to Princess Diana.

On Tuesday, Meghan joined Prince Harry for a production of "The Wider Earth" in support of the Queen's Commonwealth Trust and The Queen's Commonwealth Canopy to raise awareness on forest conservation. The duchess nailed the winter white outfit by cozying up in a turtleneck dress by Calvin Klein and a chic coat by Amanda Wakeley ($1,190). She paired the radiant look with olive green pumps and matching olive clutch, both by Ralph Lauren.

To introduce baby Archie to the world, the new mom went with a white trench dress by designer Grace Wales Bonner, a poignant choice for the duchess. Like Meghan, Bonner is of mixed heritage, having been born to a British mother and Jamaican father. Despite her young age, the creative boasts a long list of prestigious industry awards including LVMH awards, acknowledgment from the British Fashion Awards and was a 2019 finalist of the British Fashion Council's Designer Fund.

Sept. 23, 2019
Meghan underwent a few outfit changes in Cape Town for a variety of engagements, but we have to say her Veronica Beard dress, one that she first wore on her royal tour of the Pacific, is one of our favorites. While the blue dress is no longer available for purchase, we found the same style in red; it's on sale from The Outnet ($178 but in low stock). She paired the look with $145 wedges from Castañer.
Sept. 24, 2019
For the second day of the Sussexes' 10-day royal tour of Africa, Meghan recycled yet another look from when she was pregnant with baby Archie during her royal tour of the Pacific last fall: A gorgeous green dress by Australian Melbourne-born designer Martin Grant. She's said to have paired the maxi dress with Manolo Blahnik BB Point Toe Pumps ($625 at Nordstrom) and earrings by jewelry designer Nina Bosch.
Sept. 25, 2019
The tour's third day was met with a visit to Cape Town's Woodstock district so Meghan could meet with an "inspiring female entrepreneurs who shared their passion for ideas, technology and making a positive social impact."
For the solo outing, which hones in on the duchess' passion for women's empowerment, Meghan wore the $120 Japanese GoWeave Essential Jumpsuit from Everlane, Manolo Blahnik's iconic "BB" heels and $200 gold earrings from jewelry designer Gas Bijoux.
