Don't even try to deny it—you are just as weirdly obsessed with the royals as the rest of the world. The pristine mystery of their lives is something that will fascinate us common folk for years to come, including their wardrobes. While I know Mehgan Markle and Kate Middleton (or should I say Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex) are all anyone can talk about right now, there are a few other royals with incredible style whose style I'd like to emulate too.
Now, I'm not trying to fool anyone here—I love shopping on a budget. I'm Who What Wear's resident Zara Scout, for crying out loud! But I tend to dabble in the world of H&M for more classic pieces and, apparently, when I'm trying to copy all of my favorite royals' style. Ahead, shop the looks I'm buying at H&M (for under $50) to try looking as chic as royal family members from all over the globe. If they can do it, I can, right? Maybe my budget isn't as high, but my thrifty shopping skills are, if I do say so myself.
Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge
This Kate Middleton dress is actually from Zara, but since it's sold out now (naturally), the below options from H&M will do just the trick.
Some might say Meghan has "basic" style, but that isn't always a bad thing. Meghan continuously makes a strong case for the classics, as proven by this striped button-down look. Lucky for us, most affordable retailers sell the basics, including H&M.
A bra top and printed skirt? Now that's a fresh look I'd love to wear to a party. Sadly, H&M didn't have a matching set available, but I did find this adorable skirt and crop top that will tide me over in the meantime.
