One of the Duchess of Sussex's favourite summer styles is the classic shirt dress, and back in 2019, she donned a crisp white design from Hannah Lavery. Looking as lovely as ever while visiting a township in Johannesburg alongside Prince Harry, the Duchess' appearance has since caused sales in shirt dresses to soar, and Mango is selling a near-identical version.

Meghan loves wearing shirt dresses
According to Lyst, thanks in part to the Duchess effect, searches for shirt dresses have been on the rise since Meghan has been appearing in them.
