Here's Everything You Need To DIY A Meghan Markle Costume

It’s no secret we’d all love to be a princess for a day – or at the very least, a princess in waiting. So what better way to fulfill this lifelong dream than to dress up like one for Halloween? Enter the Meghan Markle costume.

Markle, who stars in the hit legal drama Suits, quickly became a household name after the press publicly announced she was Prince Harry’s girlfriend last year. And ever since, we’ve watched the couple’s whirlwind romance unfold – from going on sweet date nights and stealing kisses at polo matches to attending Pippa Middleton’s wedding together. With rumors of a royal engagement on the horizon, we can’t help but envy Markle’s impending entrance into the royal family. But for now, we’ll just have to live vicariously through her.

In addition to her impending princess title, the actress’ wardrobe is equally lust-worthy (she’s even been known to rival Kate Middleton’s impeccable style!) Markle is always the picture of perfection, whether she’s dressed down in leggings on her way to yoga with her mom or wearing a sleek two-piece set while attending a charity event. Below, we’ve uncovered everything you’ll need to embody the American beauty from head-to-toe for the night. Here’s hoping we’ll find our own Prince Charming…

Emulate Markle’s classic look with a tailored dress. For inspiration, we’ve pulled this blue lace number with quarter-length sleeves, similar to the one Markle wore to a red carpet event last October. While her Diane von Furstenberg would cost you a pretty penny, this sweet eyelet version is available for only $99 at Boden.com. With its scalloped hem, bracelet-length sleeves, and skin-baring details, you’ll expertly nail Markle’s look at a fraction of the cost. Plus, you’ll easily be able to wear the dress all year long! Have a formal event or dinner with family you need to attend?  We think this option will provide the wow factor you’re looking for. All that’s left to say is, “Yes, please.”

Like Markle, you’ll want to show off your toned legs with a traditional pump. Try this nude option for only $39.99 at DSW – and if you’re feeling adventurous, make a statement with the bright red pair. After all, who doesn’t need another staple pair of heels in their closet? Like the dress, you’ll easily be able to wear them for a variety of occasions, so you won’t regret making the investment now. Just make sure to find a comfortable pair, as you’ll likely be on your feet most of the night!

While you may look worthy of royalty in this sleek getup, you’ll want to make it clear to whom your heart really belongs. Add an “I Heart Harry” patch to your dress, and no one will have any doubts about where your affections lie! If you’re really looking to spark up some debate, wear a tiara and wave a handheld British flag. If anyone still questions your costume (which would be strange, because we think it’s obvious enough), simply say “Future princess coming through!”
