If you've been struggling to grasp that late summer, early fall transitional season style, then look no further than Meghan Markle's perfect denim and light layers look from the U.S. Open. On Saturday, September 7, the supportive friend attended the Women's Singles Finals match in New York to cheer on her pal Serena Williams as she competed against Canada's Bianca Andreescu.
But Markle also provided a masterclass in how to dress for the balmy meets breezy days of early September. For the occasion, she sported a knee-length denim belted shirtdress paired with a gray jacket draped casually over her shoulders. She topped off the look with aviator sunglasses, loose waves, and her signature no-makeup makeup.
And here's the Duchess chatting with fellow tennis fan Anna Wintour. We'll just assume they were chatting about what it's like editing Vogue, considering Markle recently guest edited the September issue of British Vogue (casual).
Popular Twitter account Meghans Mirror reports that the dress is J.Crew. Better news: The dress is still available for $118—even less if you take advantage of seasonal sales. If you're not already a fan of the denim dress, this easy-breezy version with a belt will likely be a closet staple for the season. It's still in stock...for now.
Markle, who was seated in Serena's box during the match, also spent time chatting with the tennis champ's husband, Alexis Ohanian. Photographers caught the two hugging, proving the Duchess is very close with the couple.
The royal arrived to New York on Friday (don't worry, she flew commercial this time) sans Prince Harry and baby Archie. Soon after landing she took a yoga class at her favorite West Village studio. No reports on what other plans Markle has for her quick trip—royal sources confirmed she'd be headed back to England after the weekend—but last time Markle was in the city for her baby shower she was spotted with Serena at the Polo Bar in midtown, so keep your eyes peeled in the area.
