Following a Tuesday morning visit to the University of Johannesburg, Meghan Markle arrived at ActionAid, an international charity working with woman and girls around the world, as she continued her royal tour in South Africa.
Having worn a $145 trench dress by Banana Republic that morning, the 38-year-old changed into an ethically sourced khaki shirt dress for her second engagement of the day.
The tailored garment was made by Room 502, an American label which describes itself as a “holistic luxury brand” and uses ethically sourced materials, production and labor.
Meghan wore the “Stephanie” dress, which is currently sold out. The dress is made out of 100 percent cotton and features a built-in waistband belt and practical front pockets.
Although Meghan’s utility-inspired dress had a minimal silhouette, the royal gave the look a statement finish with a pair of dramatic earrings.
The brass stud earrings featured woven rope embellishments with copper beads and were made by Pichulik, an ethical accessories brand in Cape Town.
The earrings also held an additional meaning, as the website stated,“The Labyrinth earring represents our hero's journey into our center to know ourselves intimately so that we may venture out in the world strong, clear and wise.”
