I've Got Meghan Markle Taste on an M&S Budget—Here's How to Achieve Her Style

The last week has been all about Meghan Markle. Slow heatwave days and refreshing cooler moments were punctuated by the latest photos of the Duchess of Sussex that set the fashion crowd alight.

If you were on a social detox, or simply busy staring into a fan, then you may have missed the frenzy induced by Meghan's flowy jumpsuit or the sleek tailored shorts she wore for her meeting with feminist pioneer Gloria Steinem. (Don't worry—I've shopped out this look below.) These appearances reminded me of just how wearable Meghan's style really is, and so began my hunt to re-create some of her best looks with the help of the Great British high street.

During my deep dive into Meghan's style, I noticed there were a few specifics she relies on. Classic combinations are key to creating chic looks that still feel modern, which led me to create mathematical-like formulations to follow to replicate Meghan's style, albeit on a budget. Muted tones like blue, white and brown are often combined for preppy daytime styles, whilst for more sophisticated events, a full tonal look always does the trick. A lot of Meghan's outfits rely on great staples like jeans, shorts and shirts that you may already have in your wardrobe. But if you don't, I've found great options (at great prices) from Marks and Spencer, Karen Millen, H&M and more.

I've broken down some of Meghan's greatest looks over the past few years to show just how easy they are to re-create, even on a high-street budget.

Meghan's off-duty style relies heavily on denim, which makes it especially easy to re-create. This particular get-up is perfect for warm summer days.
