Meghan Markle Just Made a "Boring" Work Staple Red Carpet–Worthy

Given her acting background, Meghan Markle is certainly no stranger to the red carpet, so it should come as no surprise that she knows exactly what to wear for such an occasion. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended the Endeavor Fund Awards in London on Thursday night and Markle nixed a traditional red carpet gown in favor of a crisp white button-up shirt and a maxi skirt, both custom pieces by her go-to brand, Givenchy. The look reminded us of one of Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy's iconic outfits from 1999—and you know we always love a '90s homage. 

A white button-up is arguably the #1 workwear staple everyone should own, but Markle managed to make it look glam with the addition of metallic Aquazzura heels and a strategic slitted skirt to add just the right amount of sultriness for a night out. Her slicked-back hair and Givenchy clutch also made the office item look anything but boring. Scroll down to see the expectant mom's new red carpet outfit and shop a similar look.

Erin Fitzpatrick
Senior News Editor

Erin got her start as a Who What Wear intern over 12 years ago—back when the site only published a single story per day. (Who What Wear has since increased that number twentyfold.) She graduated magna cum laude from USC, which is how she ended up moving to Los Angeles from her hometown of San Diego. In college, she also interned at Refinery29, where she was promoted to editorial assistant and then assistant editor. After nearly three years at R29, she came back to WWW in 2016, where she currently holds the title of senior news editor (as well as the unofficial title of resident royal expert—in case you haven't noticed her numerous Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton stories). She spends her days trying to incorporate her idols, Anna Wintour and Roger Federer, into as many stories as possible. Outside of work, she loves tennis, classic rock, traveling, and smothering her dog with affection.
