She only announced her engagement to Prince Harry a few months ago, but Meghan Markle is already making her mark on the fashion world. The bride-to-be made an intentional fashion faux pas look royally stylish when she donned mismatched earrings back in January, but her most recent style mistake appears to have been an actual oversight.

Markle's $298 J. Crew coat matched perfectly with Harry's navy outfit, but the Daily Mail pointed out a detail that completely changed the fit of her ensemble.

Markle forgot to remove the coat's "tailor's tack," which is an X-shaped stitching added to the bottom to help garments with a vent or slit keep their shape when transported or hanging on display.

It's an easy mistake, as the "tailor's tack" can often look like a purposeful design. Removing the stitch will allow the slit in the back to open, leading to a less boxy and more tailored appearance.

Even though it's a fairly subtle mistake, it's still comforting to know that even future royals aren't above making a fashion faux pas from time to time.
