Meghan Markle Just Showed Off Her Styling Skills in a New Video For Her Workwear Collection

The Duchess of Sussex took to the @SussexRoyal Instagram Stories to document her work on a fashion capsule collection in partnership with her friend and fashion designer Misha Nonoo that was announced last month.

In the video posted to Instagram Stories, Markle surprises the women from Smart Works, one of her patron organizations, which helps women prepare for the workplace. The video is set to Bill Withers’s 1977 hit “Lovely Day” and features a beaming Markle as she hugs the women, who appear to be her photoshoot participants. We also see the new mama help with on-set styling, evaluating photos and, finally, a final shot of her clapping excitedly in front of the camera.

The duchess is dressed in dark skinny jeans, a blue-and-white loose-fitting striped collared shirt by sustainable British women’s brand With Nothing Underneath and nude heels. 

“Sneak peek at the new Smart Works charity capsule collection shoot, ahead of the autumn launch,” she captioned the Instagram Story. “An initiative supporting the Smart Works collective which will equip women entering the work force with the key work wear essentials they need…coming soon,” she added.

As announced during her reign as guest editor for the September issue of British Vogue, the workwear collection includes a one-for-one component. So, for each item purchased, one will be donated to a woman in need via Markle’s patronage, Smart Works.

The organization offers unemployed women coaching and clothing to help nail their next job interview. Markle has served as patron of the foundation since January of this year.

The duchess tapped Nonoo, a close pal who attended the royal wedding, as well as Marks & Spencer, Jigsaw and John Lewis to help create the line of workwear, which will become available later this year.

And you better believe that when that date arrives, we'll fully embody *the duchess clapping excitedly at the camera* mood.
