Dress Like Meghan Markle: The Art of a Good Button-Down Shirt

Nneya Richards

The combination of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex stepping away from royal duties and the global pandemic has left us seriously craving Meghan Markle style moments. However, one of her go-to style essentials is perfect for times like these: her classic button-down. This wardrobe staple checks a lot of boxes. It can lend an air of professionalism, which is why it was a main feature in her Smart Works collection, but it also has a cool-girl, borrowed-from-the-boys look. Meghan has worn the white button-down everywhere from outdoorsy royal duties to charity galas. She has worn a sporty striped option to Wimbledon, as well as a classic design on a virtual call, just like many of us! Easy on, easy off, no fuss, no messing up your hair, and super comfortable - we've realized a button-down can be the perfect work-from-home look!

One of our favorite retailers, Gap, is great for a variety of button-downs, from a crisp white pick to Wimbledon-worthy stripes. We've selected some great pieces for you, all on sale, for you to be dressing like the duchess in no time.
