10 cool and comfortable shirt dresses Meghan Markle would love

The Duchess of Sussex adores this versatile dress style

Fiona Ward

The Duchess of Sussex loves relaxed yet tailored styles, and one of her most-worn items is most certainly the shirt dress.

Meghan showed her love for the chic silhouette during her 2019 royal visit to South Africa, when she wore four different but equally gorgeous dresses, including a white midi shirt dress, a sleek khaki number, an elegant full-length outfit - and our personal favourite – her trusty Veronica Beard shirt dress, which she first wore during her visit to Tonga in 2018.

Meghan loves to wear chic 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. When she wore a gorgeous Club Monaco style to introduce baby Archie to Archbishop Desmond Tutu during the South Africa trip, searches for the brand rose by nearly 600 percent.
