The perfect time to dress up like Meghan Markle holding a fake baby Archie—and not be branded a stalker—is Halloween. The day is dedicated to dressing up like your favorite alter ego, after all. For anyone wanting to channel the Duchess of Sussex, we've rounded up some of Meghan's most iconic looks to recreate. The duchess wears a lot of contemporary outfits, which is great—you can look in your own wardrobe for similar pieces—but to stick out and really become Meghan, you'll need the right energy. Study the photos of Meghan below (her poses, smiles, etc.), then shop the pieces needed to get her look. A tiara to top off all the outfits won't hurt, either.
To announce their engagement, the couple appeared together for a photocall at The Sunken Gardens of Kensington Palace. Meghan stuck to a classic look, choosing a trench coat to wear over a knee-length dress and lace-up heels. This outfit marked the beginning of her journey to becoming a royal.
