Meghan Markle attended her first solo royal engagement without Prince Harry at the Royal Academy “Oceania” Exhibition opening in London on Tuesday. If she was nervous, she calmed her nerves the best possible way we could think of: by wearing her favorite go-to shoes, her Aquazzura ‘Deneuve’ cutout-side bow-back pumps.

There’s nothing quite like a trusty pair of shoes to help you feel like you’re in your comfort zone.

The Duchess of Sussex used her Aquazzura pumps to accentuate an elegant, black Givenchy midi dress with velvet chest paneling and velvet-cuffed sheer plissé sleeves.

We love her addition of a velvet belt to the frock. You can compare it with the belt-less and shorter-hemmed version of the same Givenchy dress, which retails for $3,300 at Barneys and Farfetch.

We’ve already written extensively about the Aquazzura ‘Deneuve’ pumps. Now, it’s time we showed you how to get the look for less!

Check out our two under $50 alternatives below. The Qupid ‘Show 39’ pumps have the same side cutouts and back bows and get additional support from ankle straps. The ‘Sayde’ pumps from Kurt Geiger‘s Miss KG label, on the other hand, are almost an exact replica.
