Meghan Markle took quite a break from the spotlight, but royal style lovers around the world rejoiced in September 2023 - the Duchess of Sussex was back and rocking her signature stylish looks at the Invictus Games in Germany, wearing dresses, skinny jeans and trenches to die for. 

And the good news is that you can shop most of Duchess Meghan's looks, from budget friendly brands like Banana Republic, POLO Ralph Lauren and J Crew, to luxury pieces from Cuyana and Cult Gaia.

Duchess Meghan's Invictus fashion for the win

The Duchess had my attention even before she made her public debut alongside husband Prince Harry in Düsseldorf, when I spotted that she was wearing one of her three pairs of under-$100 Le Specs sunglasses. The former Suits star opted for the round Le Danzing style that you can shop for $85 (£49).

While we’re used to Meghan stepping out in her luxury staples, like her Chanel cap toe slingbacks or her Goyard tote, I loved that for her first appearance she chose a very accessible look: a Banana Republic shirt dress that fans flocked to shop. And it’s no wonder - the super chic midi was on sale for less than $60.

I’ve been keeping an eye on Duchess Meghan’s style for years, and one of the great things about her fashion choices is that they’re as wearable as they are stylish, and always in a pared-down palette, so her pieces are always timeless whether they’re high-end or budget-friendly.

She repeated quite a few of her fave wardrobe must-haves- like minimalist pieces from affordable J Crew - which is a brand also loved by her mother Doria Ragland - and skinny jeans by A-list denim brand Frame.

It looks like Meghan might have a whole closet full of Frame skinnies - she also wore a white version by the Hailey Bieber and Gigi Hadid-approved label earlier this summer.

    Cult Gaia 'Raylene' Gown

    After a week of neutrals, Duchess Meghan ended the Invictus Games with a burst of gorgeous color - the Cult Gaia 'Raylene' gown in the shade Seamoss. 

    While the dress is nearly sold out, the designer has a shorter version of the look, the pretty 'Anelia' dress ($498), which is a mini length with spaghetti straps.

    On Day Five of the Invictus Games, Meghan wore her Chanel cap toe flats with a white J Crew knit jacket ($158) with contrasting black piping - and while the JCrew look quickly sold out it's now available for pre-order!

    The Duchess teamed the two-tone cardigan with pleated 'Luisa' shorts by Staud ($175).

    You may remember that Meghan wore a longer pair of Staud shorts in pink for a Lakers game over the summer.

    L'Agence blouse + Miu Miu sunglasses

    Meghan’s love of tonal dressing took center stage with her ‘quiet elegance’ look - a $345 bronze silk blouse by L’Agence, a label you’ll find in the closets of celebrities like Taylor Swift and Nicky Hilton, with the Duchess’ beloved wide leg trousers by Gabriela Hearst.

    And what would a luxe look be without designer shades? Meghan’s are the Miu Miu ‘Artiste’ sunglasses that we’ve seen her wear before.

    The Duchess of Sussex opted for an affordable look for her first official appearance at the Invictus Games in Germany. The pleated Banana Republic shirt dress, which originally cost $140, has been reduced to just $59.50.

    While the actual dress is only available Stateside, we found some amazing lookalikes for UK royal fans.
