The Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, is a fashion icon to many people. Every piece she wears becomes a headliner or a new fashion trend. Fans have even called the Duchess’s ability to influence fashion the “Meghan effect.”

Before marrying into the royal family, the Duchess was a confident woman known to turn heads as an actress and a model. Her ‘Beauty Transformation’ from a wide-eyed starlet to a chic trendsetter devoted to philanthropic pursuits has made her an inspiring role model to women worldwide.

Like many of us coming back to work from the holidays, the Duchess of Sussex went back on royal duty last week. On her way to visit Janice Charette, the High Commissioner in Canada to the UK, she donned a tonal dress matched with a camel coat from the high-street retailer Reiss.

Markle’s caramel-colored ensemble exuded class and humble elegance and has garnered praise across multiple online platforms. The wool coat, which rapidly became a new fashion must-have that fits the season, has been selling out fast.

Fortunately, there are many ways you can mirror the Duchess’s elegant look for a much more affordable price. The lightweight hooded jackets from Woman Within come in khaki and exude the same vibe as Markle’s tonal ensemble. This coat comes in inclusive sizes and different prints to make things even more exciting. When choosing a coat, go for one shaped at the waist to create a flattering silhouette. As for the length, mid-thigh ones are good if you have a petite frame. Those just above the knee are great for people of average height. On the other hand, long coats work best for anyone taller than 165cm.

A roll-neck jumper is underneath her wool coat in a darker shade of tan, usually available in various retail stores. If you want to follow suit, you should go for a roll neck jumper that’s a little more fitted and make from breathable materials, as they are ideal for layering. Chunky or oversized roll neck jumpers are usually best paired with tight-fitting legwear, whether a skirt, a pair of jeans, or leggings.

The Duchess paired the jumper with a long silk skirt that was also a few shades darker than her coat. Silk skirts from Zara come in various cuts, designs, and prints, which can give your inspired outfit a personal touch. When picking out a dress, make sure that the length is perfect for your height to avoid looking short. Generally, go for midis that end just a few inches below your knee.

Meghan Markle then finishes off her look with a pair of court shoes! As you probably guessed, a dark shade of tan.

Court Shoes

Mango’s embroidered court shoes will give you a style point that will not break the bank. Choose some that fit you properly and provide support to the arches of your feet. These two minor considerations can help make walking in these shoes much more comfortable.
