Blink and you might miss her: In a newly released video from Clevr Blends, Meghan Markle—who has been an investor in the California-based coffee company since 2020—takes on multiple jobs during a tour of the company’s busy offices. She also wears a crewneck cashmere sweater from COS ($250) in the loveliest sky blue hue. (Watch to the end of the clip to see her dash through.)

OK, so the bad news first: The COS sweater in this colorway sold out immediately as nearly everything Markle wears tends to do. But the good news is that we found a few alternatives that feature the same crewneck style and come in a similar blue.

For example, this cashmere option from Uniqlo ($80) which happens to be a third of the price of the sweater Markle wears. We also like this alternative from Nordstrom ($149; $100) which again comes in cashmere and at an affordable price point, too.

To wear it like Markle, simply French tuck it into denim and pop on a pair of white sneakers. Sunglasses are optional, but encouraged. (For this particular video, Markle wore the ‘Triomphe’ style from Céline.)

One final PSA: If you love the OG COS sweater worn by Markle, you can still snag the exact same style, but in a different colorway. (Black and gray are both still in stock.)

Dressing like a duchess has never been so easy.
