What Brands of Clothes Does Meghan Markle Wear? Inside the Duchess’ Favorite Designers
Meghan Markle was known for her fashion sense even before she became a member of the royal family. As an actress, as a lifestyle blogger, or as a duchess, she’s always known how to dress her best. Being one of the most fashion-forward celebrities out there (she’s even been officially called one of Britain’s best dressed), many have come to ask what brands she wears to get those looks. Let’s take a closer look at some of Meghan Markle’s most famous outfits, along with the different brands of clothes she wears again and again.
What brands of clothes does Meghan Markle wear?
It should come as no surprise that the Duchess of Sussex has a taste for the expensive. In general, she seems to favor brands from Canada, possibly due to her connection to the country given that her own clothing lines were released through Reitmans, as well as France (obviously). Many of her most iconic looks are from Givenchy and Altuzarra, with multiple outfits sporting something from these two brands. She was also responsible for renewed popularity in Strathberry when she was seen with one of their bags in 2017. Some other favorites include brands like Brock Collection, Jason Wu, Carolina Herrera, and more.
Of course, no luxury closet would be complete without at least a few pieces by HUGO, Oscar de la Renta, Dior, Gucci, Burberry, and Prada. Some brands, Dior being one of them, have even tailored custom outfits for her.
Markle also dresses down with more affordable brands
Despite literally being royalty, Markle hasn’t completely abandoned the clothes and styles of us commoners. One such example is the more affordable brand Aritzia, which she’s been seen wearing from time to time even at more upscale events. Reiss is another, and one of many brands that have seen a boost in sales after she’s worn some of their merchandise in public. While a bit more luxurious, Club Monaco is also a bit more realistic for us to get if we hope to steal her looks. She’s also been seen sporting some Ralph Lauren styles and J. Crew accessories.
She’s had some truly iconic looks over the years
While having some big brands in your closet is nice, they don’t mean much if you can’t put them together into an outfit or two. Lucky for us, the Duchess has a bit more than two iconic looks to choose from. Even before joining the royal family, Markle’s been rocking some fantastic ensembles while out and about.
One of her earliest show-stopping fashion statements came during her acting days. In 2016, she attended the Canadian Arts and Fashion Awards wearing a Jason Wu dress. This elegant black number stunned with its super deep plunging neckline, asymmetric hem, and subtle chevron pattern.
The Duchess followed this up in 2018 when she debuted another of Wu’s outfits at the 100 Days to Peace event, this one a royal blue sleeveless dress, according to Elle. She also added a pair of matching Aquazzura pumps and a gray clutch by Dior to finish the look.
Speaking of Dior, they got to design a custom look for her to wear at the Royal Air Force’s 100th anniversary event. It consisted of a dark navy midi dress and nude pumps. She also added a matching Stephen Jones fascinator, an accessory that certainly earned its name.
To cap things off, we’ve also got one of her trendiest outfits that she wore just for fun. Her white Altuzarra dress featured dark pinstripes and buttons, complimented by a gray Camilla & Marc blazer worn on her shoulders. Dark Tamara Mellon heels and a black and white Orton cross-body finished off this iconic look.
