Since Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex became friends with Gloria Steinem, they've spoken of their shared beliefs surrounding women’s rights, the need for representation and the very timely conversation on voting. Read their exclusive Q&A on MAKERS today, #WomensEqualityDay at the link in bio!
The 39-year-old wore the Janessa Leoné Serena Hat ($515.49), which is currently available for pre-order. The elegant hat is one of the brand's most protective styles, thanks to its wide brim and thick braided straw. It has a UPF rating of 50+. The natural straw hat also comes with removable black ties for versatility.
Janessa Leoné is a Los Angeles-based brand that was established in 2013 to create the highest quality accessories with a focus on elegant minimalist designs. The brand boasts many celebrity clients, and it is a fitting choice for Meghan to wear to protect herself on a hot California day.
Meghan paired the hat with Anine Bing pinstripe trousers, a short-sleeved white top and Stella McCartney sandals. She also accessorized with bracelets Gloria had given her with the phrase "Linked, not ranked."
The pieces of jewelry were significant because they highlighted the activist's message in a succinct way and touched on equality, women's rights and voting.
Janessa Leoné revealed on Instagram that it was supporting the causes by donating 10 per cent of proceeds from all orders made until Aug. 30 to I Am A Voter.
