Meghan Markle's Sheer Dress Was Seriously Stylish & These Are The Best High Street Dupes
Another day, another stylish outfit from the Duchess of Sussex. On Tuesday night, the royal took on her first solo engagement. Attending the opening of the Royal Academy Oceania exhibition, she stuck to her usual style, choosing an elegant black dress. Except this time a portion of it was sheer. Her midi-length Givenchy dress appears to have been custom-made so is therefore priceless. But here's a few ways to dupe Meghan Markle's sheer dress without spending the earth.
Markle's design featured sheer long sleeves, what appeared to be a velvet V-shaped bodice, and a slit at the front of the skirt. Understated but seriously chic, was the ideal look for an art exhibition. Accessory-wise, she chose her favourite bow-adorned heels by Aquazzura and a black box clutch by Givenchy. If you'd like to get an identical pair, you can buy her exact shoes for the mere sum of £546.
The 37-year-old's ensemble is a great way to transition from autumn to winter. Luckily, versions of it can be found all over the high street with the sheer sleeves providing much-needed warmth. Perfect for Christmas parties as well as a wintry night out, Markle's style of dress is super easy to replicate.
Being a royal, Markle must adhere to certain rules, namely that her dresses must be of an appropriate length. She may be restricted in her wardrobe choices but mega fans of the Markle certainly aren't. So whether you're into teeny tiny mini dresses or elegant maxis, you're guaranteed to find something for a good price. Here are some of my favourite.

If you're used to covering up, showing some flesh can be a little unnerving. But as Markle proved, going to the sheer side needn't involve baring all.
