Meghan Markle Swears By These Affordable Clothing Brands

Kate Middleton isn’t the only royal who swears by affordable clothing brands. Meghan Markle does, too!

From her affordable tote bag that caused a media frenzy (page 4) to the one budget-friendly brand Middleton and Markle swear by (page 6), we share Meghan Markle’s favorite affordable brands — plus her tips for styling lower-priced items.

1. She mixes high fashion with affordable pieces

Like Kate Middleton, Meghan Markle likes to style her outfits with a mix of high fashion and budget-friendly pieces. Mixing high and low prices is a great way to save money on trendier items that you may not wear as often as a designer coat or handbag.

In addition to mixing price points, Meghan and Kate have both repeated a few items, too. While this is a more normal thing for commoners to do, it’s rare that you see a celebrity — let alone, a member of royalty — do so.

2. She is loyal to a few affordable brands
