MEGHAN MARKLE IN A ROYAL BLUE COAT AND ELEGANT BLACK BASICS

Meghan Markle Blue Smythe Coat and Misha Nonoo Pleated Skirt

It was incredibly hard to choose which outfit to start the series off with, but I decided on this one as it’s pretty recent, it was an important day for the Duchess of Sussex, and it’s an outfit that is really easy to recreate at a variety of price points! Meghan wore this look to an event celebrating the launch of her charity cookbook Together: Our Community Cookbook (just ordered my copy last week!). This was her first royal solo project as the Duchess of Sussex, and she was accompanied by Prince Harry and her mother, Doria Ragland. I’ve included more photos of the event below, so you can see more of her ensemble and also see how proud Prince Harry is of his new wife. That picture of him with his hands clasped together is enough to make anyone melt!

I’m a sucker for blue, so I absolutely LOVED this brilliant royal blue coat she wore to this event. The coat is by the Canadian brand SMYTHE, which is a label I love that you can actually find on Shopbop, Nordstrom and a bunch of other places! Since the coat stole the show, she paired it with a simple black sleeveless ribbed turtleneck by Tuxe, a Misha Nonoo pleated skirt and black suede pumps with a tortoiseshell heel by Sarah Flint.


It’s an outfit that would be wonderful for a work event or holiday party this coming season, don’t you think? I was able to find so many amazing dupes to each piece Meghan Markle is wearing (because naturally, almost all of the exact items she wore are now sold out), and I think you’ll be thrilled with the price points I was able to locate from around the web. See below to shop the collage and more pieces you can get to recreate Meghan’s cookbook launch look!

COLLAGE: COAT // TURTLENECK // SKIRT // HEELS // BOOK

  • If you’re looking for her exact color coat, don’t miss this style! It’s on the more expensive side, but definitely close to what Meghan’s looked like!
  • This MANGO coat is under $200, pretty much the same style as above but in a slightly darker blue.
  • This coat is on sale for only $185, and features a nearly identical color and silhouette! The silver double breasted buttons make this option a little more on flashy than the coat above.
  • The exact skirt she wore is still available!! It’s actually made to order, so that may be why… good news for you! It’s $250, but it’s a worthy desk-to-dinner investment.
  • I found a nearly identical pleated skirt for only $50 here. A great essential to have!
  • This ribbed sleeveless turtleneck isn’t a bodysuit like Meghan’s, but it’s got the same look… and for only $66!
  • If you’d prefer something a little thinner that will lie flat under a skirt, this jersey sleeveless turtleneck is a wonderful style staple!
  • If you don’t mind a little more of a stylized touch, this mock neck top is perfect! Lightweight and ribbed like the Duchess’ bodysuit, it also features a cute scalloped detail at the neck. It’s also now only $15!
  • Meghan’s heels will be available again for pre-order soon! You can buy them here for $395. There’s also a shorter-heeled version here.
  • Or you could go with just a simple pointed toe black pump like this or this for under $150!
