With her good friend Serena Williams in the finals of the U.S. Open, the Duchess of Sussex made a surprise trip to the Big Apple to catch the match — and provided some serious style inspiration.
Sitting in Williams' box last Saturday afternoon, the former Meghan Markle sported the perfect summer-to-fall transition piece from J. Crew.
According to style blog Meghan's Mirror, the duchess wore the brand's denim shirtdress with a tie belt.
Since her appearance, the dress sold out but now it's back and available for preorder at J. Crew with an estimated delivery of Oct. 28.
While we haven't tried it on ourselves, it does seem like a great style to take your closet from warm September days to chilly October evenings. It comes in a bright medium wash and features a matching belt to accentuate the waist.
The duchess paired the look with a collarless cardigan from the same brand in a "heather dove" color. The "sweater blazer" is one of the brand's bestselling items with a 4.5-star rating from nearly 300 reviews. Originally the exact sweater was only available at Nordstrom, but since the duchess wore it, J. Crew brought back the popular soft gray color and we're sure it'll also sell out quickly!
We haven't gotten a good look at the footwear Meghan opted for, but it's the kind of dress that seems like it'd be perfect paired with flats right now. In a few weeks when the forecast is a little cooler, we can easily imagine adding a pair of over-the-knee boots.
