Although Meghan Markle intentionally went for muted colors in her real life, as she revealed in the Netflix documentary series “Harry & Meghan,” these days her style speaks for itself.
The Duchess of Sussex regularly hits the headlines with her looks, which range from gala-ready glam to cover-girl designer looks.
Even long before she married Prince Harry, she spilled her fashion secrets on the now-defunct blog The Tig, recalling once attending New York Fashion Week and “realizing that clothes aren’t just pieces of fabric, they can be art”.
But while the former blogger’s personal style has evolved over the years, especially once palace protocol entered the picture, one thing has remained the same: her love of a budget buy.
Like sister-in-law Kate Middleton, Markle often ditches expensive pieces for something a little more affordable, whether she’s donning a summer dress from Reforma or J.Crew to chat with Oprah.
So, from Hollywood to the UK, and back to California, we’ve rounded up some of Markle’s most affordable fashion choices that are still available to shop.
While we wait for more secrets to spill in the next round of docuseries episodes, premiering on December 15, shop below for seven of Markle’s style secrets for under $250.
While Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle may not have everything in common, they do share several of the same fashion favorites, including Veja sneakers.
Plus, now that the brand also offers baby shoes, perhaps the littlest Sussexes will soon be matching their mum with sets of their own. (After all, Archie’s shoe collection already includes a pair of pint-sized Ugg boots.)
Markle, along with the rest of the royal crew, is a big fan of J.Crew’s style staples. While many of her favorites are no longer made, the top she wears on the cover of her podcast “Archetypes” is still available and for sale to boot.
For more of her favorites from the brand, shop the Juliette Collarless Sweater Blazer ($158), which she wore to watch the 2019 US Open, and the High-Rise Toothpick Jean ($75, originally $128) that she wore a year before
Markle also owns several pieces from Cuyana, a brand she recently partnered with for a charity initiative. In addition to this wide-brimmed hat, which has become a staple of her casual California style, she and Jessica Alba own the Luna Ear Jacket earrings ($198).
Markle’s closet also contains some affordable Mother denim, including this pair she wore to the 2017 Invictus Games.
Looking for even more duchess-approved denim? Shop the Madewell design that Markle and Princess Eugenie are both. While their exact version in Pinter Wash ($118) is almost sold out, a similar shade is still available.
Among Markle’s other Madewell choices? The canvas version of the brand’s popular Transport Tote ($178).
The former “Suits” star’s jewelry collection isn’t all straight from the palace. She has worn the designs of New York brand Catbird repeatedly, especially this delicate design.
Another of your favorite bling brands? Monica Vinader, whose pieces also have a place in Kate Middleton’s jewelry store. The Duchess of Sussex has worn a friendship bracelet similar to this one on several occasions.
Add your favorite to the cart or stack it on all seven pieces for a look Markle loves from head to toe.
