Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton are undoubtedly the two most fashion-forward royals. Everywhere they go, the two duchesses seem to be either starting a trend or perfecting one. And this week has been no different as both ladies were spotted in this fall’s best accessory—a blazer.

While making an appearance on her first official royal tour, Meghan stepped out in New Zealand wearing a $437 blazer by New Zealand designer Karen Walker. The jacket, known as the Fathom Blazer, comes in dark navy and features a tailored, cropped design. The jacket, the designer’s site explained, also comes with peak lapels and a single button fastening, along with front pockets and back vent.

Not to be outdone, Kate also wore a blazer this week to a visit to the Royal Foundation’s Coach Core program. For her outfit, Kate chose a $795 blazer from Canadian brand Smythe. That jacket also comes in an ultra-tailored design, along with a single-breasted silhouette and contrasting corduroy collar.

Though both jackets are still available, you may be looking for one at a less royal price point. Here are five options to get the same Duchess jacket look for just a little less.



For the same tailored feel as Kate's, go for the Treasure & Bond blazer in plaid. The deep brown hue is ideal for fall, while the tweed material will keep you warm well into winter.

The Gap’s girlfriend blazer gives off the most relaxed vibes thanks to its straight silhouette and padded shoulder design. Best of all, the slightly oversized design means you’ll be able to rock a chunky fall sweater too.

For an ultra-warm blazer this season, look no further than Banana Republic’s unstructured wool-blend jacket. The coat, which comes in four different colors, sits right at the hip like Meghan’s and gives the defined waist everyone is looking for.

Perhaps the jacket of the season is the Zara oversized plaid blazer. The boxy coat goes with just about everything and is flattering on just about everyone. And its timeless print means you can wear it every fall forever.

To buy: $100; zara.com.



For a bit more dressed-up feel, go for the Trina Turk gala blazer. The coat comes in a fitted design with a slightly cropped finish and includes a dazzling crystal button closer for an upscale feel.
