From her chic sunglasses to her functional dresses, Meghan Markle knows her way around a wardrobe staple — a fact she proved most recently with the launch of her Smart Works line for unemployed UK women in need earlier this month. There’s one piece of clothing in particular, however, that we covet from the Duchess of Sussex’s closet more than any other: her coats.
The royal’s outerwear collection is breathtakingly gorgeous, and for good reason: According to OK magazine, “royal women never remove their coats in public, as it is deemed ‘unladylike.'"
This surprising British rule serves to explain why Markle and her sister-in-law, Kate Middleton, are oftentimes photographed in coats — even while indoors or on warmer days.
Luckily, Markle’s toppers, which include everything from edgy, leather moto styles to chic full-length wrap trenches, are a joy to behold: She’s practically the picture of sophistication when wrapped in the wool and cashmere finds she regularly sports.
Fans of her look will be pleased to know that we’ve managed to track down many of her favorite jackets online for easy recreation.
If you’re looking to cop the former actress’ elegant style, but can’t afford the hefty price tags that go along with it (the royal’s outerwear ranges anywhere from $550 to upwards of $1,000), not to fret — we've also located plenty of similar styles you can scoop up that feature a shockingly similar aesthetic at a fraction of the cost.
That now-famous Line the Label white wrap coat Markle captivated the world in for her engagement photos, for instance? There’s a $44 knockoff that’s currently up for grabs on ASOS (yes, really!).
