Get Meghan Markle's Birthday Dinner Look For Less

Since Meghan Markle married into the royal family in 2018, she has been a breath of fresh air in nearly every possible sense, but especially as it pertains to her fashion sense. Not since Princess Diana's iconic bike shorts and crew neck combo have we seen such relatable fashion choices from a royal lady, and since she and her husband walked away from their titles as senior members of the family in 2020, she has only become more admired for her post-royal fashion.

We've obsessed over her wedding day, no-makeup makeup look, her famous nods to her rebellious mother-in-law, and her relatively affordable shoe and clothing choices. Now, Markle has inspired us once again with her 42nd birthday dinner look. The striped, strapless bodycon maxi dress she wore to the occasion is by Posse and is currently available for pre-order for $239. She paired the dress with Cult Gaia's Nia Wooden Bead Clutch ($428) and simple black T-strap sandals by Emme Parsons ($425).

If you're looking for an exact replica of this entire look, you'll likely have to fork over the cash (and wait for the pre-order of the dress). The good news is you have a handful of options if you're just hoping to create a 'fit with a similar vibe.

Wiholl Striped Slim Fit Off Shoulder Midi Dress is an (almost) exact match

Wiholl Striped Slim Fit Off Shoulder Midi Dress provides the same length, cut, color combination, and a similar comfy stretch fabric as Meghan Markle's birthday dress for just $49.00. The stripes are nearly the exact same thickness as Markle's, with the same fun and simple feel for nearly $200 less. 

Yoawdats Fashion Bodycon Ribbed Maxi Dress adds an alluring touch

Yoawdats Fashion Bodycon Ribbed Maxi Dress offers a stripe pattern that is a bit thinner than Markle's dress and the version above. It features a knit fabric that more closely resembles the original and the added detail of a flirty cutout at the waist — all for just $16.99. 

Verdusa Sleeveless Knit Bodycon Sweater Dress for a fun twist

Looking for a dress with just a slightly funkier spirit than Meghan Markle's? Check out Verdusa Sleeveless Knit Bodycon Sweater Dress for $27.99. This dress adds thin straps and a square neck, plus a stripe pattern that reverses as it cascades down the body. 

YIFEI Beaded Acrylic Handbag gives a transparent feel

YIFEI Beaded Acrylic Handbag is constructed of transparent acrylic beads, features a classic tortoiseshell handle, and will set you back just $29.99. The color and the texture provided by the bag's beading give a major nod to the one Meghan Markle carried to her birthday dinner. 

Jessica McClintock Gwen Ball Mesh Clutch is a stunning choice

If you're looking to go just a bit more elevated with your handbag, this Jessica McClintock Gwen Ball Mesh Clutch has the goods for only $46. Its bronzed metal finish will catch every eye in the place while its mesh beading mimics the vibe of Meghan Markle's beaded birthday clutch.

DREAM PAIRS T-Strap Flat Sandals are a simple addition

Meghan Markle chose an exceedingly simple T-strap sandal for her birthday dinner ensemble. You can do the same with the DREAM PAIRS T-Strap Flat Sandals for $36.99. The sandals offer one simple metal embellishment, a square toe, and a non-slip sole for comfort, sensibility, and Markle-inspired style. 

Ipanema Connect Sandal for that extra oomph

If you wish for just a tad more pizazz when it comes to Meghan Markle's choice of birthday sandals, consider the Ipanema Connect Sandal. Rather than a plain center strap, this pair offers a sleek maxi-chain and a studded back strap closure for just $35. For those willing to take inspiration from Markle's outfit rather than replicating it, the entire look can be had for less than the price of the original dress alone.
