It shouldn't come as much of a surprise that anything bride-to-be Meghan Markle sports instantly increases in demand (we're talking coats that she wears selling out within minutes kind-of-demand here). The 36-year-old former actress has proven her impeccable fashion taste time and time again as of recent, from her engagement photo dress to her Alexander McQueen pantsuit ensemble, making the rest of us commoners want to hop on the Markle Mania style bandwagon, stat. Her influence has even trickled over to the bridal market, where she's already upped a few wedding dress trends for the year.

The good news is that you don't need to be equipped with a royal budget or be BFFs with multiple clothing designers to mimic some of Markle's clothing choices. Browse our roundup of some of the future duchess's go-to's from recent public appearances so you can add some posh pieces (with a hint of regality) to your engagement wardrobe. Be warned, however, that if Meghan Markle was spotted wearing them, that means every fellow fashionista wants to get their hands on them, so waste no time in snagging these items while they're still in stock (the Markle Effect is truly in full force). Next up, perfect your messy bun, and you're all set.

Mother Denim

While the identical pair of Mother jeans that Markle sported during the Invictus Games in Toronto sold out (...again), you can still shop a similar denim style. You won't regret splurging on this everyday staple, especially knowing that a future duchess signed off on them.

Unsurprisingly, Markle's black Sarah Flint heels with a cheetah heel (from her second public appearance with Harry following their engagement) already has limited sizes available. But, put your best Markle-inspired foot forward with a similar, shorter style, perhaps to pair with new back pantsuit look. Plus, having a trusty pair of black pumps on-hand is about as crucial as owning the perfect LBD.

The bride-to-be's outerwear choices have also caused quite the stir among Markle Maniacs—she sure knows how to layer in style. Get your hands-on one of her favorite jackets, which she sported during a surprise trip to Ireland, before everyone else gets the same idea.

Aritzia Dress

Markle rocked an all-purple look during the Invictus Games Ceremony last September, which included this completely affordable midi dress from Aritzia. While the exact shade she sported is only available in XS, you can still #SparkleLikeMarkle in the Apple Butter hue.

Cole Haan Coat

If you're dreaming of owning Markle's engagement announcement look, we come bearing bad news—every item, from her nude heels to the green dress, is either completely out of stock or close to it. But, on the bright side, you can easily replicate her white Line the Label wrap coat at a fraction of the jacket's actual cost. Say hello to your new spring layering obsession.

Rupert Sanderson Pumps

Markle and Kate Middleton sported matching blue heels to commemorate Commonwealth Day earlier this month (which also marked Markle's first public event with Queen Elizabeth). So, if not one, but two royal women have added these shoes to their collections, naturally you should do the same. The identical shoe currently has limited availability, so opt for a cool gray version instead.
