The Meghan Markle effect has begun! The same day that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced their engagement, the coat that Meghan was wearing sold out online.

The pink wrap coat, now named “The Meghan” is made by Line the Label. As an extra bonus for Canadians, Line the Label is a Canadian brand popular with celebrities and, apparently, the Royal Family.

Unfortunately, the Meghan is not only sold-out, it’s also super expensive, retailing for over $500.00.

As much as I wish I did, I don’t have that kind of money to spend on a coat., even one worn by Meghan Markle So, I found some cheaper alternatives! All prices listed are in Canadian dollars.

This Trina Turk coat is closet in colour to Meghan’s coat, although the pockets are different.

This Banana Republic coat is probably the most accessible for Canadians.I love how structured the collar is, although I’m not the biggest fan of the visible inseams. YMMV, of course!

This coat also matches the pockets on Meghan’s coat, although the coat is more on the purple side than the pink side. Still, it’s super cute. Plus, it has buttons so it stands out among the other coats.

I checked to make sure that all these coats are in stock for any Meghan Markle fan! And all coats are amazing, and affordable, but I think my favourite alternative is the Trina Turk Ali coat.
