Meghan Markle loves an organza top, and so do we. This effortlessly chic style will work for all your spring events - and Meghan’s exact blouse is available to buy for £29.
When it comes to high-low dressing, no one does it quite like Meghan Markle. Unafraid to rip up the rule book and experiment with her fashion choices, whether she’s wearing an emerging sustainable designer or a high-street favourite, her incredible sense of personal style always shines through.
Now the Duchess of Sussex has proved once again that she is style icon after our own heart wearing one of the biggest trends for spring 2020 – an organza top. On one of her last official royal duties, Meghan visited the National Theatre in an impeccably chic all-white ensemble that included a stunning ivory organza blouse. Though her pencil skirt may have been Roland Mouret and her shoes Aquazzura, her headline grabbing top came from high-street stalwart Topshop. You can buy the exact same style for just £29.
The blouse is currently available in Topshop stores and online in sizes 4-18, and if you don’t want to replicate Meghan’s exact ivory style, it’s available in blue, blush and black too. But hurry, anything that Meghan wears turns to fashion gold, and we predict it will sell out in hours.
If you missed out this time, don’t panic; there are similar sheer, puff-sleeved styles available. From ultra-romantic sheer sleeved designs to more structured, office-appropriate versions, there is an organza top to work for every occasion. Wear yours with blue denim and chunky-soled dad trainers for a laidback weekend look, or take your styling cues from Meghan and wear with a chic midi skirt for a polished look that is just as elegant by evening as it is by day.
