Meghan Markle’s sartorial approach is far from conventional. While her wardrobe for royal engagements saw the Duchess in Stella McCartney, Gucci, Chanel and Alexander McQueen, Markle knows how to mix high-end designer labels with high street fashion well. If you follow her style closely, you’ll know that just like her sister-in-law, the Duchess of Cambridge—the 38-year-old also has a love for accessible labels.
Over time, she’s been seen in the likes of & Other Stories, J. Crew and Castaner. Here, we round up five wallet-friendly brands the mother-of-one has been championing.
& Other Stories
This Swedish label has celebrity supporters including Kendall Jenner, Selena Gomez, Bella Hadid. Markle was seen in a burgundy polka dotted dress during her Australia tour in October 2018. On another occasion, she wore a green shirt by & Other Stories with a forest green skirt by Hugo Boss at the University of Chichester’s Engineering and Digital Technology Park during an official visit to Sussex.
Meghan has supported a number of Canadian fashion brands, including budget-friendly Aritzia. For her very first public meeting with Prince Harry, Markle broke the internet in a pleated wine hued dress by Aritzia—and since then there’s been no looking back. Fast forward to 2019, for an outing she styled a purple midi dress from label’s affordable Babaton collection with a long red coat that highlighted her baby bump.
Favoured by the likes of Meghan Markle, Kate Middleton, Pippa Middleton, Gwyneth Paltrow and Anne Hathaway, the Spanish brand Castañer is known for creating wedge espadrilles. The Duchess of Sussex is a fan of the black lace-up Carina wedges that she loves pairing with bright printed midi dresses.
Meghan Markle is an avid fan of on of LA’s best denim exports, Mother Denim. From sporting their signature skinny jeans to flared pants, the Duchess can’t seem to get enough of the brand. Case in point: It was in 2017, when she wore a pair of skinny blue jeans with a relaxed boyfriend shirt for her first public outing with Prince Harry.
Given that outerwear is her strength, Meghan Markle has also worn some great styles by J.Crew that don’t break the bank. Our favourite look? The navy and white coat she wore on International Women’s Day 2018. That’s not all, she also wore a denim dress to support Serena Williams at the US Open tennis final which got sold out within a few hours of her being spotted in it.
