We found 10 lookalikes in case it runs out.
Meghan Markle has never been chic. The Duchess of Sussex maintains a certain air of elegance, even when she’s doing less-than-thrilling things like running errands and working out, thanks in part to her reliance on timeless wardrobe staples. Because if there’s one thing I know Markle will wear, it’s a polished basic. And while speaking at the 2023 Invictus Games this week, that’s exactly what she did, and it reminded me of a smart fall essential that’s currently missing from my wardrobe — but not for long.
Markle wore a crisp, pleated black shirt dress from Banana Republic. The piece cinched at the waist, further accentuated by her elegant black belt, and fell just below her knees. The look was simple yet sophisticated and a reminder that there wasn’t much you had to do to look put together. And somehow, her exact dress still comes in white And on sale for just $56 with an additional 20% off at checkout (although it won’t be around for much longer).

A classic shirt dress is one of those items you’ll never wear not use it – you can do it day or night by just dropping a button. So, in anticipation of her style going out of stock, we found nine lookalikes from Gap, Everlane, Reformation and more.
Amazon shoppers are obsessed with Sopliagon’s shirt dress, which has over 1,600 five-star ratings. It’s available in 22 colors, including a classic black like Markle’s, and designed from a lightweight cotton blend meant to give it a linen feel. “[It’s] cute, comfortable and stylish at the same time,” said one customer. Another person wrote that they were “impressed with the fit and material” of the dress and noted that they had received “many compliments” on it. And while it may not have the same cinched waist as Markle’s, customers note that they simply add their own belt to give it a little more shape.

If you like Markle’s style but prefer it a little shorter, I recommend grabbing Gap’s Ruffled Mini Shirt Dress while it’s 50% off. This style has the same buttoned front and crisp little collar, but swaps a pleated mid-length skirt for a tiered mini skirt. I love the slightly puffed shoulders and sleeves – which I think look a little less corporate – and the fact that I can wear them with my favorite knee-high boots thanks to the length. And according to shoppers, the “flattering” dress is extremely versatile, considering it’s a great transitional piece that they can wear casually or to work.

Personally, I like a little more color, which is why I can’t help but think of Everlane’s buttery yellow satin shirt dress, which expertly combines comfort and elegance thanks to its loose, flowy fit and its luxurious fabric. But if you want something other than black and are looking to save a little, Old Navy’s midi dress is another great option. The army green style, which shoppers call “beautiful,” features a belted waist that contributes to its “flattering fit” and utility chest pockets.
