With the highly anticipated royal wedding less than a week away, the Meghan Markle effect is in full swing. The American actress turned soon-to-be British royal has swiftly become a budding fashion icon–with nearly every outfit or accessory she wears flying off the shelves mere hours after its debut.
And who could blame those eager admirers from afar for buying pieces of Markle’s wardrobe? Her style, much like future sister-in-law Kate Middleton’s, is chic, classic and refreshing–full of investment pieces, pops of color, and always seemingly youthful and fashion-forward. What's more, she’s even effortlessly rocking those slightly terrible British hats.
Are you a follower of Markle’s enviable wardrobe? Looking to fill your closet or makeup bag with some pieces the former actress has already worn? Follow our Meghan Markle Guide and you’ll be looking like royalty in no time.
This gorgeous J.Crew coat was on sale before Markle wore it on International Women’s Day this year. Hours later, the store was taking pre-sale orders for the next restock of the coat, which is still months away. So if you’re searching for a stylish coat for next fall or winter, look no further than this pristine, two-toned beauty.
Markle’s engagement ring isn’t her only piece of jewelry that’s catching the public’s eye. The American also loves a Brooklyn-based jewelry store, Catbird, and their one-of-a-kind stackable rings. Scroll through photos of Markle at public outings and you’ll catch her wearing these tiny-but-adorable skinny rings on numerous occasions.
Perhaps one of Markle’s more affordable go-to brands, Everlane is known for no-frills, professional style. The brand is hit among celebrities like Angelina Jolie and Millie Bobby Brown; it’s no surprise, then, that the former Suits actress fell in love with the company’s Italian-made leather tote. There is a waiting list for the cognac tote Markle carried to the Invictus games last fall, but there are other colors of the same tote ready to ship now.
Before Markle made her official debut with Prince Harry, she was walking red carpets and attending morning talk shows wearing the likes of Jill Stuart. Though Markle’s popular red Jill Stuart sweetheart dress is hard to find (eBay is worth pursuing), the blue version of this cocktail dress is still available to snag. It’s just right for those summer evening happy hours.

Long before she became Prince Harry’s fiancé, the Suits actress spoke about her favorite makeup staples, including MAC’s "Teddy" eyeliner and NARS "Orgasm" blush. We can't imagine she would share that blush recommendation with the Queen of England, but you can take Markle’s advice and seize the products for your own makeup bag.
Think you won’t find a princess in denim? Think again! Markle has been spotted out on many occasions sporting pairs of stylish skinnies–even some with holes in them–including numerous pairs of Mother Denim. The jeans, priced at a pretty penny, are fit for a queen.
Markle, an avid professional tennis fan, has sported one of her favorite sunglasses brands—Mykita, a German-based maker—during several matches. And while the brand is pricy to say the least, you’ll definitely want to carry these fashion-forward sunnies with you everywhere you go.
Rumor has it Markle’s favorite new lipstick is none other than Charlotte Tilbury’s "Very Victoria," which is actually inspired by Victoria Beckham, former Spice Girl and rumored Royal Wedding guest. If a nude lip isn’t your go-to, there's also another Charlotte Tilbury pink shade inspired by Kate Middleton called The Duchess.
Back in March, Markle and Prince Harry made a surprise appearance in Belfast, Ireland, where Markle debuted a chestnut, gold-clasped Charlotte Elizabeth handbag that sold out in mere hours. The British handbag designer is already taking pre-orders for the clutch, though, which has an estimated five-month waiting list.
You’ll be hard-pressed to find the original Self Portrait dress Markle wore on an outing just a few weeks ago, but, lucky for us, the brand has a version in red. The future royal covered up the sleeveless, sexy dress with a sleek, modest blazer, but we love this multi-tiered frock all on its own.
A favorite among celebrities, Sarah Flint’s Italian-made shoes are both timeless and trendy. Markle has worn the designer’s shoes many times, most recently on a royal outing with Prince Harry. The tortoise-colored block heels are sure to inspire countless compliments from peers.
Okay, so there’s no confirmation of Markle actually wearing this gorgeous highlighter; however, Becca Cosmetics actually created this pressed powder in honor of the upcoming royal nuptials. Get a royal glow just like Markle’s enviable dewy skin with this shimmery highlighter.
