Meghan Markle might be off the hook when it comes to her royal duties, but we definitely still consider her to be our biggest style muse. And now that she’s allowed to dress more casually again, she’s going to bring back ripped jeans with sneakers and denim jackets over dresses. Right?

Here are the six easy-to-copy outfits we hope to see Meghan wearing in the near future.

1. Striped Blazer + Turtleneck + Black Pants

Meghan favored minimalist shapes and clean lines long before she moved to the U.K., so we don’t expect her to stray too far now that her dress code has loosened up. We bet she’ll be living in this cozy-yet-chic outfit formula during those cold Canadian winters.

2. White Button-up + Ripped Jeans + Sunglasses + Pointy Flats

This simple white shirt, ripped jeans and tortoiseshell sunglasses combo is perhaps one of the easiest Meghan outfits to replicate. She wasn’t yet married to Prince Harry when this photo was snapped, which explains why she was allowed to rock (gasp!) ripped jeans in public. We have a feeling she’ll once again be slipping into her favorite Mother skinnies every chance she gets.

3. Striped Dress + Blazer + Strappy Heels

While we can expect the Sussexes’s super formal appearances to slow down, we’re excited to see more of Meghan’s polished, modestly priced sheaths make their way back into her wardrobe. While her striped dress (pictured above) was from Altuzarra, we’ve discovered a dupe that’s attainable at $158. Plus, with the addition of a tailored blazer and sleek pumps, it looks like it costs ten times that.

4. Denim Jacket + Button-up + Skinny Jeans

We can picture Meghan strolling the farmers market in this casual outfit—with Archie in tow, of course. The button-up and dark skinnies give off a tailored vibe, while the denim jacket makes the whole outfit feel much more approachable.

5. Sporty Half-zip + Black Jeans + Trainers

This photo marks the first time Meghan stepped out in sneakers as a duchess—granted, she was a few months pregnant and on a royal tour Down Under. Now she can step into a pair of comfy trainers whenever she pleases, and we hope she does so often. We can already see our sneaker collection multiplying by the dozens.

6. Sleeveless Jumpsuit + Statement Earrings + Suede Pumps

Meghan is pretty much Everlane’s biggest fan. Want proof? Consider this simple jumpsuit (which she’s already worn multiple times) and her go-to Day Market Tote. We expect her to add more of the brand’s sustainable, easy basics to her closet, especially with a toddler to chase after.

Get the look: Everlane jumpsuit ($120); Kenneth Jay Lane earrings ($90); Manolo Blahnik shoes ($625)
