We’re Totally Copying Meghan Markle’s Chic but Casual Work Outfit

If you’re like us, then you were delighted when you noticed that Instagram Stories ring around Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s @sussexroyal Instagram handle today. It’s rare the Duke and Duchess of Sussex offer insight into their personal lives via Instagram Stories. But today, the 38-year-old duchess utilized their IG handle to offer a behind-the-scenes look at her upcoming fashion capsule collection, which will benefit her patronage Smart Works.

In the @sussexroyal Instagram stories, Markle can be seen running the Smart Works collection photoshoot, greeting models and clapping upon viewing the campaign images. It’s endearing to see the duchess in her element. And while we were obviously trying to sneak a peek at her capsule collection, we also took note of her breezy on-set outfit.

The Duchess of Sussex wore a blue-and-white linen menswear-style button-down from London-based brand With Nothing Underneath. Interestingly enough, the brand has some crossover with Markle. It was founded by Pip Durrell, a former British Vogue stylist. Lest you forgot, Markle recently guest edited the magazine’s September issue.

The boyfriend-fit shirt is currently only available to preorder for $104. However,  Frank & Eileen does make a similar white-and-blue multi-stripe Italian chambray version for $228 that you can still snag in time for your Labor Day vacation.

The Duchess of Sussex paired her relaxed-fit button-down with what appear to be the same Outland Denim Harriet jeans ($195) that she wore to Wimbledon and her now-sold-out Stuart Weitzman Legend beige suede pumps. Though her heels are no longer available to purchase, the Stuart Weitzman Leigh pump ($398) in dolce taupe is similar.

All that’s left to do is wait for Markle’s capsule collection to arrive this fall…
