But while their happiness was clear for all to see, it was actually Meghan’s choice of outfit for the big day that caught our eye.

The former Suits actress chose a decidely less formal (but equally gorgeous) look for her engagement announcement, wearing a stunning white wrap coat by Canadian designer Line The Label.

The 36-year-old paired the look with some nude ‘Matilde’ heels from one of her favourite brands, Aquazurra. And her dress hidden underneath was a dark green pick, from Italian brand P.A.R.O.S.H.

But of course, although stunning, Meghan’s outfit offering is likely slightly out of our budget.

However, if you’re looking to copy Meghan’s chic and sophisticated style this winter, there are plenty of similar options on the high street.

In fact, there a numerous pieces that make for a great copy of Meghan’s cosy-looking coat.

JD Williams has a near-identical coat priced at £22.50, down from £45.


The company revealed that sales of the coat rocketed by 73% in December, thanks to what they call ‘The Meghan Effect’.

Perhaps the most similar to Meghan’s original is this £139.99 version for high-street retailer Mango.

Like the bride-to-be’s, this pick also had those trademark wide lapels, with a belt to cinch in the coat at the vaist. It’s also a similar colour and length, meaning you’ll be looking like Meghan in no time!

The coat is currently available in an XS to a M, but is selling out quick. So be sure to grab yours ASAP!

But if £139.99 is still a little too much to spend, Boohoo have a cheaper offering that could be ideal.

They have a belted collar coat, available in a range of colours from white to grey. This pick has the same, wide collar and belted waist – although it is a little thinner than Meghan’s pick.
