Replicate Meghan Markle's stunning looks with these affordable options we have curated just for you. 

Meghan Markle's stunning looks and almost rule-breaking style has captivated us since she first stepped out with fiancé Prince Harry. The newly minted Duchess' public appearances have since continued to pike the general interest into her enviable closet. And, rightfully so. 

While on some days Markle and her stylist Jessica Mulroney prefer to go with high-street. On others, they add her effortless enchant of haute couture into her outfits. Either way, Markle looks like the billion bucks she is soon going to inherit and has surely made us huge fans of her style.

But her looks don't come easy because they aren't that affordable. However, if you love her style too but don't want to shell out as much, you can always try the affordable options we have curated for you.   

Cop Meghan Markle's stunning looks

You can now replicate Meghan Markle's stunning looks with these affordable dupes. 

1. Jackie O Dress from Black Halo

Meghan Markle recently wore the Jackie O Dress from Black Halo at the London Women's Empowerment reception. This is a cult favourite and has been worn by various celebrities before and costs a whopping $375.

But worry not, you don't have to shell out that much to replicate Markle's look.

The Lavish Alice Asymmetric Neck Midi Dress for S$100.90 does pretty much the same job as far as flattering the body structure is concerned. It hugs you in all the right places, is just as stretchable as the Halo dress and looks just as effortlessly chic. 

2. Jason Wu Belted satin wrap dress

The 36-year-old former actress wore the Jason Wu Belted satin wrap dress at the first inaugural Royal Foundation forum in London. Paired with Altuzarra heels, Markle looked like a million bucks in the $1,415 dress. But we have a great affordable option for you to replicate the same look.

You can try the ZALORA Double Layered Insert Dress in green for S$27.90. It looks just as fashionable as the Jason Wu with the exception of the colour and the fact that this dress has a halter back. If you like to experiment with Markle's look, this double layered find is our pick. 

3. J Crew two-tone wrap coat 

The Duchess joined Prince Harry in Birmingham, where the couple marked International Women's Day with their visit. The stylish Markle made her public appearance in a $448.61 two-toned wrap jacket by J Crew.

While the brand is relatively affordable as compared to her other picks, you can do with an even more affordable option from Sunnydaysweety. Try their Blue Long Sleeves Coat for S$187.00. While it is not an exact replica, we love the fact that the white detailing makes this option look better than the one Markle wore. 

4. Line The Label's white wrap coat

Markle's now sold-out white wrap coat by Line The Label has become a rage with young girls since she first wore it to her engagement announcement. The $750 coat has since been on the radar of most fashion-forward girls but most haven't been able to get their hands on it because of the price point.

But Mango has created somewhat of a dupe of this coat with their Double Breasted Trench Coat that costs only about S$159.00. The fabric of the Mango coat makes it suitable to be worn on hot days and it looks just as classy as Markle's now-famous white coat.

5. Joseph Lauren full midi skirt

For Markle's first engagement as a royal-to-be, she chose a Joseph Lauren full midid skirt. The $474 beige cotton and silk-blend twill looked amazing on Markle. But worry not, we have a cheaper option for you.

This River Island Jacquard Flared Hem Pencil Skirt for S$69.90 is the perfect dupe for Markle's skirt. It has a similar cut and clings onto your hips just as Markle's did. Plus, the skirt being white can be dyed in any colour you so desire.  

6. Alexander McQueen trouser suit 

For her first official evening engagement with Prince Harry, Markle wore a slimming Alexander McQueen trouser suit. This is perhaps the poshest of attires Markle's so far worn with the suit jacket retailing for $1,995, and the trousers for $795.

However, Sunnydaysweety provides a cheaper alternative with its 2017 F/W Black V Neck Long Sleeves Coat With Pants retailing for S$189.00. While the silhouette and the look is almost similar, the coat differs in its length. In fact, Sunnydaysweety's coat is longer creating a more elongated look. 

7. Mackage's Mai Belted Wool Coat with Waterfall Collar 

Markle's vast coat collection is worth drooling over. And her Mai Belted Wool Coat with Waterfall Collar from Mackage has perhaps got the most love from so far. The gorgeous fall, cut and colour, make Markle's coat a perfect addition to any fashionista's collection. But the $750 coat is too expensive for our pockets.

But if you really want to replicate her style, try the MISSGUIDED Oversized Waterfall Duster Coat for S$85.90. In fact, the dupe is not only affordable, it also has more detailing on the sleeves. 

8. Altuzarra's Audrey button-detailed ottoman midi dress

Another addition to Meghan Markle's stunning looks and royal-ready wardrobe was the striped Altuzarra dress and black Camilla and Marc blazer she wore at the Commonwealth Youth Forum in London. The $1,995 Audrey button-detailed ottoman midi dress was a knockout and is difficult to replicate since it from their latest collection.

But worry not, we've found a dupe in the Anna Alba Cherish Dress retailing for just S$31.76. You can also pair it with a jacket and fabric belt à la Markle.    

9. Emilia Wickstead jacket and skirt

For the traditional Anzac Day ceremony at the Westminster Abbey, Markle chose a custom Emilia Wickstead jacket and skirt combination. For the uninitiated, Wickstead's designs cost anything between $1200 and $2,000.

But there's no need for you to shell out so much when you get a similar look from ZALORA's Fitted Peplum Dress at just S$38.54. While Wickstead's cropped top gives the attire the look of a boxy pop-over dress, the peplum dress adds curves at all the right places. 
 
These affordable dupes are proof that you don't have to shell out a million bucks to replicate Meghan Markle's stunning looks. You can do that for much less and still look as fashionable and stunning as the Duchess of Sussex.
