As someone who keeps track of the Duchess of Sussex's style as part of my job, I can tell you that the Meghan Markle effect (and the struggle to find her fave pieces before they sell out) is real.
Even though the Duchess is generally keeping a lower profile these days, the minute the Duchess of Sussex is spotted in a look – from the Invictus Games to off-duty L.A. outfits – it’s in danger of flying off the virtual shelves and you’ll be waitlisted before you know it!
That's why I'm keeping track of what clothes Meghan has been wearing - and where you can shop them. Here's the latest...
Meghan Markle clothes that are still in stock
When it comes to royal style shopping, perennial looks that are constantly stocked or restocked after selling out, are a godsend, which is why I was able to find quite a few of the Duchess' looks that she has worn over the years that are still available.
And Meghan’s particular style – lots of monochrome and simple silhouettes – is a fabulous one to follow if you’re adding to your own wardrobe.
She has a modern classic aesthetic which means that her pieces are usually a great investment because they’ll be in style for seasons to come, plus they’re versatile enough to fit in with the looks you already own.
If you’re looking for a Meghan Markle look under $150, there’s some good news - I’ve found quite a few styles she loves that fit the bill. The Duchess might be a royal, but she also embraces more affordable labels, especially ones that are eco-friendly.
Meghan Markle's accessories - shoes, shades and more
The Duchess of Sussex's accessories are as easy to wear and stylish as the rest of her wardrobe, from well-made comfortable footwear to movie star sunglasses.
The Duchess' Le Specs sunglasses
Meghan has been known to wear designer shades, but her collection of LeSpecs sunglasses is unmatched.
Rings and bracelets by Catbird
This sustainable brand has been part of Meghan's jewelry box for years.
Meghan's Sarah Flint shoes
The Duchess of Sussex owns around a dozen pairs of Sarah Flint's beautiful handcrafted shoes.
Where to shop Meghan Markle looks
Meghan’s known to wear seasonal looks from both designer labels and affordable ones, so once those pieces are sold out, there’s little chance of getting your hands on it unless you track it down on second-hand retailers like eBay, or designer fashion rental sites like Rent the Runway.
But thankfully a lot of Meghan’s fave looks are perennial hits that are likely to be restocked, like her classic handbags from labels like DeMellier and Strathberry, or her go-to pieces from smaller labels like NYC-based Catbird and Magic Linen.
And Meghan’s been adding some trendy labels to her wardrobe - I loved her bold striped bodycon dress from Posse, which she chose for her 42nd birthday dinner in August 2023.
Where to find Meghan Markle looks on sale
I’ve become pretty familiar with Meghan’s go-to labels over the years, and there are some secrets to grabbing the best deals on the labels she relies on.
A lot of the Duchess’ wardrobe winners have year round sales – you’ll definitely want to check out the sale sections of affordable Meghan-approved labels like Magic Linen, Everlane and Le Specs, where the already budget friendly prices are reduced even more.
Plus you’ll want to keep an eye out for the big seasonal sales at Veronica Beard and Reformation, or for jeans, Frame and Mother, which are high-end denim labels that are the Duchess’ must-haves.
