Meghan Markle Wore the Skinny Jeans I Now Regret Getting Rid Of

When I was 19, I worked in a small clothing boutique that sold a surprisingly impressive assortment of designer items for a college town. On the ready-to-wear side, its racks were lined with Maryam Nassir Zadeh, Lauren Manoogian, and Samuji. And for denim, we exclusively sold Frame Denim, the brand every L.A. and NYC fashion girl wore at the time. I adored every pair from the brand and too often spent my entire paycheck on jeans. 

One pair, in particular, that I bought and subsequently wore roughly three times a week every summer for years was Frame's Le Skinny de Jeanne style in white. When I graduated and moved to New York, I left a ton of clothing items behind, donating most of them and selling the rest. Those jeans were one of the pieces I parted ways with, an act I now very much regret after spotting the exact same pair of jeans on none other than Meghan Markle. 

Markle was seen exiting an office in Montecito, California, wearing arguably the chicest, most luxurious outfit I've ever seen. It consisted of a camel-colored robe coat, a cream sweater, an Hermès shawl, Chanel slingbacks, and an oversize all-white Goyard tote. But even with all of that draped on her, the fashion item my eyes were immediately drawn to was her jeans, the same white Frame skinnies I owned in college. Envious, I immediately searched the internet for a pair to replace the ones I got rid of five years ago. 

Below, check out Markle's utterly elegant errands outfit and shop the closest pair of Frame jeans I could find to the now sold-out Le Skinny de Jeanne.
