Sounds like it’s time to update your winter wardrobe.
In the holy archive of Meghan Markle coats, there are a few that reign supreme. Her pristine white engagement coat from Line the Label. Her California-girl cool waterfall piece from Mackage. And then there’s one underrated standout, her double-breasted navy blue and green coat by Burberry – one of Meghan Markle’s favourite fashion brands.
Although the latter has been pinned to my Pinterest board for ages, the price tag of £1,995 is a big investment but one brand has swooped in to save the day with a budget-friendly copycat.
Prepare to be surprised. The new dupe is by Tesco – yes, that Tesco – and it’s a part of their affordable fashion line F&F. Rather than shelling out months of rent, the F&F coat costs just a much more doable £39 and it’s a great recreation of Meghan’s statement piece. (It’s a couple of buttons off, if we’re being pedantic.)
I’m not even joking, I’m heading there ASAP to pick one up because I’m pretty certain it’s going to go fast.

Admittedly, it doesn’t look like it’ll be quite on the same level as the quality of Burberry’s gorgeous original. On NET-A-PORTER, it’s described as a cashmere-blend and crafted in Italy so Tesco really can’t compete on that front.
While one day I’ll eventually put aside enough money to finally snag the haute couture buy, the F&F dupe will just have to tide me over till I get there.
Interested in picking your own up? Well, sadly F&F isn’t available online so you’ll have to put your running shows on and head to a physical Tesco. (I know it sounds practically medieval, but we’ve been totally spoiled by the internet.)
I’ve also thrown in the link to the Burberry coat below as well, in case you’re ready to make a designer investment purchase.

It’s such a classic coat that’ll serve you well for years to come.
And given that the weather’s just started turning colder, it couldn’t have come at a better time…
