Getting dressed up for a job interview or a first date is a well-known opportunity for experiencing outfit anxiety. But getting dressed up to break bread with Gloria Steinem — and also possibly influence the political future of the nation — well that's a whole new level of "what the hell am I supposed to wear?"

Meghan Markle, in her infinite grace and style, took the challenge with ease. Her solution? An all-white ensemble featuring smart Anine Bing striped trousers and the most popular accessory of the summer: a wide-brim straw hat.

The warm-weather classic has had new life breathed into it since designers like Jacquemus sent high-end versions down the runway, and so many celebs from Halle Berry to Reese Witherspoon have adopted the trend. Markle's exact hat is by Janessa Leone and retails for $265, but we've found some close matches selling for much, much less. Shop the most celeb-loved accessory trend of the year, starting at just $21, below.
