It’s fair to say Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex's time on camera and in the public eye has made her an expert in curating a signature, go-to style. A court shoe, tailored trousers, pencil skirts, and jeans are some of her favourites, indicative of her capsule wardrobe style of pieces that can be worn again and again. One of the key pieces in her inherently polished, yet low-key arsenal? A crisp white shirt, of course.
Markle understands the perennial allure of a white button-down shirt to a tee, making it appropriate for any event, from a red-carpet appearance to a day of work. Dress it up, dress it down, wear with ripped jeans, or even a floor-length skirt, there is no end to the versatility of how she wears the white shirt. The duchess’s take on the wardrobe classic renders it comfortable but not too casual, refined yet effortless, simple but chic, making it the epitome of the effortless glamour that has become synonymous with Markle's style.
Here are some of her most memorable white shirt looks, along with ways to recreate them.
