Meghan Markle Is Inspiring Us To Invest In These Classic Striped Shirts

Sometimes simplicity is best.

Since Meghan Markle wore a blue striped shirt to Wimbledon, we’ve been on the hunt for the ultimate classic shirt. There is nothing groundbreaking in the Duchess of Sussex’s choice, which she paired with silk cream trousers (by Ralph Lauren), a panama hat and black heels, but it is a reminder that sometimes the simplest things can have the biggest style impact.

The secret behind how Markle’s shirt makes such an impact, is that it is classic but with a point of difference - the loose but tailored fit prevents this look from being dull.
