Meghan Markle's Most Affordable Looks To Copy ASAP
Move over, Kate Middleton. Middleton's style has been oft-copied for years and she has been known to rock Topshop. But her future sister-in-law Meghan Markle also has quite an enviable style. Markle's Self-Portrait dress, which she wore to Christmas Lunch with the Queen, sold out on the quick. However, the British brand has plenty of similar and budget-friendly options if you want to copy the look.
Markle wore a gorgeous and glam Ralph & Russo black gown with feather detail and sheer elements for her official engagement photos, which showed off her personal taste — ladylike with her own edge.
Overall, though, Markle's fresh, yet chic and classic style is pretty easy to copy, since she tends to favor affordable, modern brands, such as Everlane and Aritzia. She also has a tendency to wear Barbour's outerwear pieces.
If you find yourself gawking at Markle's ensembles moreso than her dynamo ring, which her fiance Prince Harry designed and features diamonds that once belonged to his mother, the late, great fashion icon Princess Diana, you will be pleased to know that her style is as affordable as it is easy to replicate. You can purchase the exact pieces she has worn, provided they have yet to sell out. Or you can create outfits that are totally inspired by her attire, putting your own spin on them.
Here are seven affordable Meghan Markle looks that you can copy ASAP.
1. Skinny Jeans
While at the Invictus Games, Markle rocked a classic American sportswear look with high-rise jeans and a white button down, which she only tucked in the front. It was a super basic look that she turned up a notch with her oversized, brown bag. According to Business Insider, the jeans and the bag were both Everlane, which is a direct-to-consumer brand with a strong code of ethics when it comes to the factories it uses to produce its wares.
These jeans will never go out of style! You can grab a pair and add any crisp, white button down.
2. A Roomy Tote
What a sharp and sophisto bag.
The roomy, Italian leather tote looks and feels luxe, but it won't break the bank with a price tag under $200.
3. A Basic Black Belt
Markle accessorized a black, long-sleeved top and ankle-length, tan skirt with a shiny black belt from Aritizia.
Here's another look at her outfit, complete with slouchy black boots.
It's under $40 and will work with so many outfits!
4. A White Coat
Markle wore this white wrap coat from Canadian brand Line the Label when the engagement was announced. It's hard to find, but there are affordable alternatives out there.
This ASOS coat is just one stylish option for copying Markle's chic, white coat look.
5. Midi Dress
Markle wore this Self-Portrait dress to her Christmas Lunch with the Queen. It promptly sold out. But this fit and flare style is popular and the brand has many other choices in a similar silhouette.
This peek-a-boo dress with cutouts is a bit sexier than Markle's, but it is of the same shape.
6. Camel Coat
Markle wore a camel-colored, belted coat by Canadian brand Sentaler for Christmas services.
Markle's coat is majorly expensive, so it'd be an investment piece meant to be worn for decades. It's also not available until February. That said, there are cheaper —but just as chic— options.
This version is equally as sophisticated but comes at a fraction of the price.
7. Over-the-Knee Boots
Markle's over-the-knee boots by Stuart Weitzman were were a key component of her Christmas outfit.
The super sexy boots are nearly $800 so the exact pair Markle wore may not suit your budget.
This ASOS version is much easier on your wallet.
Overall, Markle does wear pieces you can afford. But when she rocks something luxe, her look and accessories are still easy to copy.
