Dressed to Impress
Meghan Markle sure knows how to rock a frock, and we're about to break down her all time best dress moments— and show you how to get the look for less.
That yellow Brandon Maxwell dress
Sleek, slimming, and sophisticated sum up The Duchess's yellow midi dress that she recently wore to a reception in London. Meghan's dress retailed for about $1,500 USD, but don't fret, if you're not ready to make such an investment in a dress, we have some tricks up our sleeves.
All of the dresses below, in this entire article, were found using Shop It To Me. These are our best Meghan Markle inspired yellow sheath dresses, each under $390:
When Meghan wore a pinstripe Altuzarra dress
Elle Magazine compared Meghan's look here to that of Princess Diana and we have to agree! We love The Duchess's pinstripe dress and we immediately want to find a look that mimics hers. Our stylists found some seriously chic ensembles to get us inspired. What do you think?
The above dresses range in price from $55 to $498 - not bad to get the style of a Duchess!!!
Lady in Red
Meghan looked magnificent in her midi red flowy dress (picture #9), a similar look as seen by Kate Middleton. Both ladies looked like royalty, and with Shop It To Me it was easy to find plenty of affordable women's red flowy dresses:
The red dresses above range in price from $167 to $245.
Stylist Tip: Don't forget that a tailor is your best friend, and they can alter/hem the dress to give you the desired look you want.
The navy dress that fit like a glove
Meghan Markle wore this Dion Lee navy dress during a Melbourne Australia royal tour she took with Prince Harry. Navy is always a chic alternative to a black dress, so we rounded up some navy numbers fit for British royalty, but you know, cheaper:
We found our favorites for only $99 - $180! Some of the dresses we found on sale, and we couldn't of found them without Shop It To Me!
Best dressed baby bump
It's no secret that Meghan Markle's maternity style is impeccable, she definitely knows how to work a maternity dress. Here we wish to not exactly replicate, but rather to draw a broader inspiration from The Duchess's style.
For example, Meghan wore this velvet Givenchy black dress for the British Fashion Awards ceremony, and as soon as we saw it we immediately knew that Hatch made a similar dress, in a rich chocolate brown velvet color, that needs to be noticed:
Meghan was also spotted in a blue Carolina Herrera dress, and while this one from Hatch is shorter, it's definitely Meghan Markle inspired:
Early on during Meghan's pregnancy she sported this Philip Treacy black dress, and we couldn't help but notice Hatch's casual take on this dress with its front button black dress:
The icing on the cake
In addition to chic dresses, Meghan Markle also has first class taste in accessories. She's more often than not sporting Aquazzura heels, and when her Aquazzura pumps aren't an option, she relies on her trusted Rothy's flats to get her through the day. We covered the topic of Rothy's here, and the brand's flats are fit for a Duchess, but made with an everyday American's budget in mind. (phew!)
The Duchess is also a big fan of her black Givenchy clutch that she often wears. Shop It To Me has tons of Givenchy handbags available, some on sale, some waiting to be "hearted" so that a price alert can be set when the price drops for you!
