When the Duchess of Sussex was recently spotted at Homeboy Industries in Los Angeles, she was wearing one of her all-time favorite fashion pieces: the white button down shirt. Crisp, clean and professional while still being casual and approachable, the classic shirt is synonymous with polished sophistication. And for the new American duchess–the shirt is functional, versatile and on permanent rotation in her Cali closet.
Here are Meghan Markle’s Favorite Casual Boyfriend Button Down Shirts:
Frank & Eileen ‘Eileen’ White Italian Linen Shirt
The duchess donned this classic laidback shirt for the Royal Tour Australia and later wore the relaxed top for delivering meals in Los Angeles. The practical shirt is perfect for mom life and can easily be dressed up or down.
J. Crew White Perfect Shirt in Piece Dyed Linen
Spotted at the airport in Austin in this tailored long sleeve style–the busy globetrotter proved her fashion prowess by pairing this easy daywear button shirt with distressed denim and later a pair of black skinnies in Cape Town.
Perhaps one of Meghan’s most iconic fashion moments–her debut with Prince Harry as a couple in Toronto was a game-changer for royal watchers who clamored to adopt Meghan’s laidback cool girl style. The future royal wore a modern ‘power piece’ from designer friend Misha Nonoo’s sustainably minded fashion brand.
Givenchy White Shirt
For an evening out while expecting baby Archie, the duchess wore a custom shirt from the famous French fashion house.
Maison Kitsune White Cotton Shirt
In Dubbo, Australia, the modern fashionista wore a new Oxford and opted for a white dress shirt from the contemporary Parisian label.
Misha Nonoo Smart Set Shirt
For her charity clothing launch, the duchess showed off a favorite look from her collection with the ‘Smart Set’ shirt. Part of the Smart Set capsule collection–the workwear friendly blouse was a huge hit and helped raise funds for Meghan’s patronage Smart Works.
