How to Dress Like Meghan Markle on a Budget

The royal wedding of Prince Harry & Meghan Markle is right around the corner…happening on May 19th, 2018 at the oh-so-posh & quintessentially British, Windsor Castle.  If you’ve been watching Netflix’s “The Crown” like I have, or love British culture, chances are you’ve taken an interest in this American girl who’s about to marry into the royal family.  Whether you know anything about her or not, one thing is certain: her style is on POINT.  Which is why I’m explaining here how to dress like Meghan Markle on a budget ~ just not a royal one! 

We’ll take some of her most iconic looks & find great alternatives that won’t break the bank.  In some cases, when there’s not a good budget option, I opted for a pricier version.  But these are usually for “statement” pieces, like the Michael Kors leather jacket.  Because let’s face it: cheap leather jackets just look cheap ~ & that is definitely not Meghan’s style!

These are my favorite looks from Meghan: dressy & posh, but still with an air of casual to them.  The last look, with its combination of soft feminine, white dress & tough black leather jacket, to me, is perfection.  I love the all-denim look as well, but unfortunately couldn’t find a budget version of it!
