How to Make Meghan Markle & Pippa Middleton’s Matching Clutches a Part of Your Summer Style
When Meghan Markle and Pippa Middleton carry the exact same clutch, it’s bound to sell out. So when the Duchess of Sussex and the expectant mom both stepped out holding a rattan J.Crew basket clutch, we immediately tried to “add to cart” to no avail.
The straw clutch isn’t just a royal-approved summer staple—it’s versatile. At yesterday’s Sentebale Polo Cup, Markle paired hers with a navy Carolina Herrera dress and Aquazzura “Denueve” pumps ($587) with a bow detail on the back for a perfectly classic look.
Middleton went the boho route and carried hers during a Wimbledon outing on July 12 in a billowy Anna Mason dress (similar $758) and white L.K. Bennett espadrilles ($130). She also accessorized a white eyelet Anna Mason dress ($892) with the J.Crew bag on July 5, proving she’s as obsessed with this fresh look as we are.
Luckily, we found a few other affordable options—a mar Y sol raffia pouch with frayed edges ($36), a taco contrast-trimmed Filippo Catarzi clutch ($50) and the ‘Jen Stone’ woven convertible clutch ($205)—that’ll pull together any summer outfit just the same.
It’s official: Raffia clutches are the bag of summer.
