Let Meghan Markle Inspire Your Denim Dress Style This Summer
The Duchess never disappoints when she steps out for a public outing. Whether she's cheering her man on at a polo charity event or — you know — getting married in front of a televised audience, Meghan Markle knows just how to dress with regal style.
While we may not all be able to get a custom Givenchy gown, taking tips from Markle's style book is definitely possible — even when you're not on a royal budget. So, when Markle sports a denim dress, as she did recently, you should definitely have out a pen and paper to take notes.
Her denim dress still wasn't cheap — Yahoo reports it costing a little over $3,000 — but the good news is that denim dresses in a similar style aren't hard to come by for much, much cheaper. Especially during the summer season!
So, get ready to be majorly inspired by Markle's fashionable denim choice:
This effortlessly chic look is great for the summer season, whether you're a member of the actual royal family or no.
She looks perfectly put together!

Paper London Wallace Denim Dress, $560, Anthropologie
Seriously — was this dress made for Markle? We may have just found the denim dress she'll wear next! This sleeveless dress with giant gold buttons is just posh enough to be worn by a royal or, you know, added to your very own closet.
6. Denim Blazer Dress
