Get yourself a "husband" shirt like Meghan in Misha Noonoo

Every girl needs a standard button up blouse in her closet that she can wear to work or on the weekends when she's off duty. Just ask Meghan Markle who donned this version by Misha Noonoo while attending the Invictus Games with her fiance Prince Harry last year.

She wore it with ripped hem jeans from Mother with a hole in the knee, an Everlane brown tote bag and matching Sarah Flint flats and a pair of tortoise sunglasses.

Perfect for any outing and occasion, this look ticks all the right boxes. Whether it's a casual brunch, day-time date or watching tennis, this is a classic go-to outfit.
