The newly appointed royal style icon that is Meghan Markle is at it again, this time with a red carpet-ready look that’s inspiring us to infuse our existing wardrobe with an unexpected pop of color. With Prince Harry by her side, the Duchess of Sussex touched down in Tonga this week, and as locals set about welcoming the newlyweds to Fua’amotu Airport, the sight of Meghan’s vibrant red Self Portrait dress sent all of us mere mortals into a tailspin.

The long-sleeved dress featured a built-in belt and a pleated skirt, but it was the design’s subtle floral embellishments that had us rushing to add a chic look-alike to our online carts.
