It was the day Meghan Markle’s style entered our lives. She has been a star and a potential royal since then. The perfect mix of casual yet polished, sophisticated yet effortless, chic yet classic—it’s all almost too much to handle.
It’s no surprise that Meghan’s style is so iconic. We’ve tried to replicate her looks for quite some while and have come up with many reasons why Meghan is so fashionable. There are a few things that make Meghan’s style so iconic:
- Her affinity for monochrome looks.The Duchess often appears in outfits with different shades of the same color in different fabrics. This daring but simple look is always elegant and stylish.
- She knows the value in well-tailored items. This is something Meghan can be proud of, regardless of whether you are a fan or not. Meghan’s looks are slim-fitting but not too tight. Her hemlines are modest, in keeping with her royal image, but still stylish and on-trend. Sometimes she will wear a large button-down and a more form-fitting skirt, or jeans in her casual outfits.
- She wanders from the patterns.Although it is not often that you see the Duchess wearing clothing with pattern, it does happen occasionally. There’s most likely one main reason for this—pattern doesn’t photograph well. It’s why you’ll see most royals wearing solid-colored clothes. Although this is not a strict rule, well-tailored solid-colored pieces can be timeless and classic, and will allow you to get the most out your closet.
Meghan’s style isn’t necessarily about her unique choices, but rather her effortless ability to know how to dress. Her. She repeats the colors that she feels most confident in. She is familiar with the styles that highlight her best features. She only purchases pieces that are comfortable and can be worn in many different outfits. These facts can be used to design our wardrobes, regardless of whether or not you like the individual outfits.
With that being said, there’s more than one of her outfits that have become beyond-enviable—and imitation-worthy. And, fortunately, it’s 100% possible to get these looks at a reasonable price point—if you know where to look. Below are some of the top outfits from the Duchess, as well as budget-friendly alternatives. Take into consideration the style elements we’ve mentioned above, and then shop.
Invictus Gaming 2017 Day 3
Ah, yes, Invictus Games 2017. This was the time when Meghan gave us all her amazing style for many days. Although they weren’t yet engaged, Meghan had captured our hearts with her effortless elegance and casual chic style. Because it’s so easy to recreate, this is my favorite Meghan look. Honestly, it’s the surprising effortlessness of the entire outfit that I believe draws so many people in—the ability to look incredibly chic without even trying.
Invictus Games 2018 Day 8
One year later, we see a slightly more polished Meghan, right after her official entry into the royal family. Her look is polished and approachable. She traded her loose, beachy hairstyle for a half-up style. I’m channeling her energy for 2022 return of work and normalcy because even four years later, it’s still as good as the day she wore.
Visit South Africa
I love this dress because it is so versatile. It was worn here by the Duchess with black suede closed toe heels. But, it would look equally stylish with sandals or ballet flats for a casual look. It’s refreshing to see Meghan choose versatile pieces in her closet, especially in an age when celebrities are reluctant to wear the same outfit twice.
Visit Canada House
It’s an understatement to say that this look is iconic. This is one of the most iconic looks by the Duchess and shows her ability to seamlessly pair pieces in the same family but in different fabrics.
Another monochrome look that Duchess of Cambridge absolutely loves. This outfit is not easy to recreate because it is difficult for one to find the right shades of green. But it is possible. You could also opt for a satin-green skirt and cotton shirt, or a different type of leather.
Because Meghan’s trousers are not visible in all the photos, Meghan’s outfit is really hard to see in many of these photos. I love that striped shirt. But, what if you pair it with the wide-leg linen trousers. It’s amazing. It gives the whole outfit an elevated and polished feel.
Johannesburg 2019, Day 2
Many of Meghan’s looks from their South African trip are easily copied. This dress can be worn with heels to make it more elegant and sophisticated, but could look equally good with sandals or wedges.
I’m honestly amazed that the Duchess wore this outfit in 2018 because it’s still relevant today—if not more so. The oversized blazer is trendy and looks great layered with a white button-down, which Meghan has worn many times.
