The best Meghan Markle style moments have been tracked with precision since her relationship with Prince Harry first went public—and before that, for all the Suits stans. While she may no longer be a working member of the royal family, Markle's style choices are as interesting as ever for fashion fans…even if we're mostly just seeing tops on Zoom these days.

While there were certainly many a fancy royal look (and fascinator) during the Sussexes' time in England, a good portion of our favorite Meghan Markle style choices are the ones that find her leaning into the casual-cool aesthetic signature to native Californians. Here's hoping we see even more of that going forward, once the world opens back up.

In the meantime, here are 27 of Markle's best looks that you can actually re-create for yourself.

Brown on brown

Little did we know it at the time, but Meghan and Harry were about to drop the bombshell news that they were stepping down as senior working royals right after this appearance in January. They do look very happy, don't they? And the duchess's mixed brown tones are simple enough for us commoners to replicate with ease.

During her first official public appearance with Prince Harry—at the 2017 Invictus Games in Toronto—Markle ignited sales for white button-downs (this one was the Misha Nonoo Husband Shirt), Mother denim jeans, and a still top-selling Everlane leather tote. It was the beginning of the “Markle Sparkle” for brands.

For more notes in the casual-yet-chic department, look to any of Markle's Hunter boot looks. As one of Britain’s most popular brands, Hunter is known for making shoes that are stylish, comfortable, and, above all, rain- and mud-proof. She may have relocated to Los Angeles, where it’s nearly 70 degrees year-round, but we’re pretty sure she packed a pair of wellies.
