The Mindy Project creator posted a snapshot of her outfit to her Instagram feed yesterday and captioned the gorgeous look “Learning from the Meghan Markle power coat.” Isn’t that the truth. If there’s anyone who inspires a major topper moment, it’s Meghan — and she’s had quite a few of them over the past few months of her engagement to Prince Harry.

So how did Kaling make an homage to the stylish royal to be? With the ultimate power coat. Not only did her classic gray-checked calf-length plaid topper have a black tartan pattern on the inside and on the collars, but the sleeves, which she rolled up, were gingham. Talk about a chic statement.

But Kaling’s daring style prowess proved itself further with the choice of a chic black and white patterned sheath dress underneath. To accessorize: a classic Chanel 2.55 bag and black suede pumps.

In other words: Mindy’s project was to take Meghan Markle’s signature style and make it her own. And she definitely succeeded.
