If you’re not a little bit obsessed with Meghan Markle’s style, can you really call yourself a royal fan? As one of the most stylish royals out there, we’ve all come to know and love the Duchess of Sussex’s best looks — from that wedding dress to the black Givenchy gown she wore while pregnant at the 2018 Fashion Awards. Instantly iconic. But how can one emulate Markle’s covetable wardrobe in their own life?
Although it might seem like her royal wardrobe is never ending (and it certainly doesn’t come cheap), Markle does have some signature pieces. A lover of denim, top handle bags and block colours, the Duchess’s style isn’t so far removed from our own when you really break it down. We’ve done just that, working out the seven key pieces every Markle fan needs in their wardrobes — because having royal-approved style is easier than it seems.
Made famous on a number of occasions, Markle’s favourite off duty style of jean is light denim, skinny cut and ripped. Tick for chic and even bigger tick for comfort.
Always one to glow up an outfit with a pair of diamond earrings, Markle knows her way around a press stud. And while ours might not be handed down from Princess Diana, they do add instant glamour to any outfit.
A top handle bag
Ever the style icon, Markle loves herself a top handle handbag. Adding a touch of femininity to even a casual outfit, a top handle bag is as ladylike as it is fashionable.
Easy breezy dresses
A lover of breezy summer dresses, Markle tends to sway towards shirt-dresses, button ups and tea dresses, often in block colours. Take cues from Markle by pairing yours with a pair of strappy sandals or simple pumps.
Work appropriate dresses
As a Duchess, Meghan Markle has to look good for a living. She also needs to look appropriately modest. Enter: her covetable collection of work-ready dresses. Block colours, simple lines and sturdy fabrics, copy Markle’s fresh aesthetic for your next corporate-leaning purchase.
The perfect white shirt
Markle loves a white shirt. Slightly oversized and with an elegantly popped collar, the Duchess is a fan of the staple, pairing it with simple jeans and flats for a casual look.
Last but definitely not least (these are one of Markle’s most-worn items) is a pair of classic pumps. A lover of a black heel, Markle’s trusty Aquazzura heels go with just about anything and can dress up any outfit.
