Aside from gaining notoriety through her former acting career (R.I.P. Rachel Zane) and as a member of the British royal fam, the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle has also garnered plenty of fame through her outfit choices alone. Ever since Meghan and Prince Harry's relationship went public last year, fans have been quick to dissect every article of clothing the royal bride has ever sported in order to hop on the Markle Mania bandwagon and recreate her style for themselves. The fact that the American-actress-turned-royalty influenced specific wedding dress trends a whopping two months before her own wedding says it all: the Meghan Effect is so real.
While it's safe to assume most of us don't have the royal budget to snag the Duchess's many recent Givenchy looks (royal wedding dress included), you can still recreate her style for less, thanks to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Still lusting over her blue and white striped Wimbledon top? We found the perfect lookalike with a dash of floral embroidery. Ready to jump the gun on fall jackets, inspired by Meghan Markle? Check out a lavender wrap coat that has her style down to a T. Check out our nine Meghan-inspired picks from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale so that you, too, can feel (almost) like royalty.
Eliza J Fringe Hem A-Line Dress
Pale pink has proven to be a favorite hue of the royal bride's following her wedding. Take a cue from the duchess with a tasteful blush, A-line midi, complete with a subtle fringed hem.

Cole Haan Tali Bow Skimmer Flat
Get the look for less! For a more affordable spin on the brown flats Meghan wore during her first public outing with Prince Harry, turn to a similar pointed-toe rendition with bow detail.

Ditsy Bouquet Print Pleated Camisole Dress
Meghan changed into a purple pleated number for last year's Invictus Games closing ceremony, topped with a purple leather jacket. We love the small floral spin on this nearly identical version.

Eliza J Back Cutout Ponte Sheath Dress
This royal bride loves her boatneck dresses (Exhibit A: her wedding gown), and she took to a highly identical navy number for the Royal Air Force's centenary event earlier this month. Although we're not sure the Queen would approve of this Nordstrom frock's back cutout.

Charles by Charles David Maxx Pointy Toe Pump
What would a royal wardrobe be without a powerful pair of pumps? Put your best foot forward and #SparkleLikeMarkle in black stilettos that take after Meghan's go-to Sarah Flint shoes.

1901 Midi Shirtdress
The Duchess of Sussex served up outfit goals at the Royal Ascot horse racing event last month, taking to a white, collared Givenchy button-front midi dress, which she cinched at the waist with a black belt. Ditch the designer label in favor of a striped rendition, waist tie included.

J. Crew Dover Blazer
Meghan's Suits career naturally taught her a thing or two about rocking menswear, and she donned a black Alexander McQueen pantsuit for an event last February. Keep the spirit of Rachel Zane alive thanks to this tailored topper.

Badgley Mischka Double Face Wool Blend Wrap Front Coat
Starting with her engagement announcement look, Meghan planted herself firmly as the queen of wrap coats last winter. Get a head start on your cold-weather style with a jacket we can easily envision the Duchess sporting.
