Meghan Markle's Blue Peplum Blouse and Flared Trousers Look for Less

Meghan Markle Blue Peplum Blouse Look for Less
Some might say pants are a little laidback for the Dutchess of Sussex, but of course she wore them with a hint of royal flair! Her beautiful ruffled peplum top is from Oscar de la Renta, in a gorgeous blue hue. We're glad that black flared trousers and suede pumps are easy pieces to replicate on a budget, seeing as how hers, collectively, are over $1,000. This would be a great outfit idea for upcoming holiday parties or dinners!



Look for Less: Meghan Markle's Sleeveless Trench Dress + Matching Pumps and Bag

Meghan Markle's Sleeveless Trench Dress Look for Less
Clearly we can't get enough of the duchess's clean and sophisticated style. Though hard to tell from afar, Meghan's House of Nonie sleeveless trench is a actually a subtle shade of pink, and she nailed the color coordination with the Mulberry bag and Dior pumps. Sadly we weren't able to find a trench of a similar hue, but our find from MANGO in light grey compliments this specific shade quite well. Another option: re-create the look with a darker tones in this trench dress from Forever21!

You ask, we deliver! Meghan Markle makes another splash in the fashion world with this dark denim dress by Carolina Herrera, with suede bow pumps, and a woven clutch. We love her subtleness in all of her outfits, clean and classic yet enviable all the same. These cat-eye sunglasses we've found, similar to her sold-out Tom Ford pair, are marked down from $120 to $50! Though we won't be attending a polo event like the royals, this outfit will certainly work for day or night through the rest of this summer - and even early fall!



Get the Look for Less: Megan Markle's Stunning Yellow Dress and Manolo Blahnik Nude Pumps

Meghan Markle Yellow Dress Look for Less
This dress style is a ladylike classic for the books! Meghan Markle stuns in a bright canary yellow sheath dress (already sold out!) alongside her new hubby during an event in London. This was a refreshing sight, as she usually sticks to a neutral (yet still gorgeous) color palette. Perhaps Jackie Kennedy was an inspiration? This dress deserves all the attention, so nude pumps and dainty curved bar earrings will do, but we added a statement necklace and soft blue clutch to complete it and still look as splendid as a duchess!

One of my favorite looks from the Royal Wedding was Megan Markle's white halter gown by Stella McCartney that she wore to her evening reception. So gorgeous! Of course, I had to search for a little look-for-less action...
