What are Faye De Lanty & # 39; s for getting the royal look on a citizen's budget?

Be picky about outfits and look for princess-worthy details such as beautiful buttons, natural fibers such as silk, wool, linen and high-quality cotton (photo: a look inspired by Meghan Markle)

1. Take your Princess inspiration photos with you when you visit a second-hand store and challenge yourself to get your look as close as possible.

2. Be picky about outfits and look for princess-worthy details such as beautiful buttons, natural fibers such as silk, wool, linen and good quality cotton.

You also have to be picky about how a piece of clothing falls on you and sits – take the time to fit things. They always look different.

3. Decorate with beautiful details such as vintage brooches, stylish hats, gloves, bags and shoes.

4. Add highly stylized elements that take your look to the next level – whether it's to let your belt run, drop your collar, or fold your cuff.

5. Repeat Outfit. The Duchess of Cambridge is especially good at turning her wardrobe and wearing pieces more than once.

Meghan Markle's wardrobe during her tour through Australia and New Zealand was a master class in relaxed royal tour dressing.

But you don't have to spend thousands of dollars to make the Markle shine.

In fact, only $ 55 is enough to imitate the Duchess. Faye managed to find an old MAJE white coast with black ribbon decoration for a bargain at $ 25.

She combined this with a simple black turtleneck for $ 8 and a black Wrangler skinny jeans for $ 10.

A stylish $ 12 carrying case, such as Meghan's Oroton number, perfectly completed the look, while the same $ 12 shoes provided extra bloom.

& # 39; If you want to dress like a royal, be fussy and look for princess-like details such as beautiful buttons, natural fibers such as silk, wool, linen and cotton of good quality while shopping, & # 39; said Faye.

& # 39; You also need to be picky about how a garment falls on you and sits – take your time and always try things. & # 39;

6. Meghan Markle & # 39; s Hollywood Night is looking for $ 47

* Black suit turned into a top with one shoulder – $ 10

* Pencil skirt – $ 15

* Bangle – $ 2

* Link – $ 8

* Shoes – $ 12

TOTAL: $ 47

The cheapest look of all the outfits was the replica of Meghan Markle & # 39; s asymmetrical black glamor dress from Givenchy Hollywood – which she wore during the British Fashion Awards evening in 2018.

But although Meghan & # 39; s outfit might have a few extra zeros at the end, you don't have to spend big money.

Although Faye did not find an exact replica dress, she did find a black body suit that she turned into a one-shoulder top. This only costs $ 10.

She then combined it with a $ 15 pencil skirt, a $ 2 bracelet, $ 8 clutch and the same $ 12 shoes as before.

& # 39; Keep an eye out for vintage clothing, they are often made with much more attention and detail than fast fashion and tend to be natural & # 39; have an expensive & # 39; look that a princess would be proud to wear, & # 39; said Faye.

She also said that she had seen all three royals wearing vintage on different points.
