Celeb Look for Less: Meghan Markle

Meghan Markle in three outfits

What’s buzzier than an actress who happens to have killer style? An actress who’s a potential princess and a badass humanitarian to boot.

If you’re not already tuned into the Suits star Meghan Markle’s way with clothes, you won’t be staying that way for long. Word has it the leading lady is packing up and heading across the pond to be with boyfriend Prince Harry, after finishing her final season with the show. If that happens, you can her name and her style will be all over your social feeds.

It’s not surprising that Markle’s look has been characterized as a California Cool version of Kate Middleton. Meghan manages to stay classy even while rocking the bandage dress — a Hollywood staple — with the best of them. But it’s Markle’s casual ensembles that turn the most heads, like the now-infamous Invictus Games outfit. Who knew a pair of jeans could cause such a stir?

With all that backlash over torn denim, we’re worried that a place in the Palace may add some formality to Meghan’s outfit choices. So let’s celebrate her style now, before the weight of the Palace rules come into play.

Invictus Games Inspired

The press went wild over Markle’s laid-back look at Prince Harry’s sporting event. We’re not sure what the fuss was about — the Prince himself wasn’t exactly dressed up either. Join us in a show of support for Markle’s casual outfit choice by mimicking her look with a lesser-priced pair of ripped jeans and a classic white button-down.

Solid Color Sass

For dressier occasions, Meghan loves to go monochrome. We’ve seen her do this look in navy, blush and white. She wears it so well, it’s easy to see why it’s become a favorite.

ASOS has a dupe of Meghan’s navy side slit skirt. Pair it with a navy sweater and overcoat to complete the look!

Blazers with Attitude

Velvet Blazer, $57, Vera Moda

Striped, tweed, double-breasted and satin lapels. We’ve seen a rainbow of blazers from this gal. The best part? She mixes up the bottoms, too. One day she’s pairing it with relaxed denim, and the next it’s with a coordinated suit short or tailored skirt. You can do this same with this on-trend velvet version.

Flats for a Lady

When she’s on the move, feminine flats are her shoe of choice. Keep your eyes peeled for classic ballerina flats and sassy, pointed-toe pairs to anchor your Meghan Markle look.
