Meghan Markle Wears Classic White Shirt by Misha Nonoo

Let's face it: Wardrobe basics are hard to find, especially when you're in need of elevated essentials that stand up to everyday wear. Whether you're trying to track down the perfect pair of jeans, an effortless leather jacket, or comfortable sneakers that don't cost a fortune, the struggle is real when it comes to striking closet gold.

Enter Misha Nonoo's The Husband Shirt ($185, mishanoonoo.com)—a classic poplin button-down that just may be the answer to our white shirt woes. A tailored collar gives this staple a perfectly proper vibe, but it's the shirt's metal shanks that make this look anything but basic. And if the slightly oversized shirt looks familiar, that's because it is—Meghan Markle rocked it during her first public outing with Prince Harry at the Invictus Games in Toronto back 2017, and she was recently spotted wearing a white shirt by Misha Nonoo this week during the launch of her workwear capsule collection that will benefit Smart Works.

The significance of the husband shirt was lost on us at the time, but it's clear now that we could learn a thing or two about closet staples from the Duchess of Sussex. (Fun fact: It's been rumored that Misha Nonoo herself was the one to set up Meghan and Harry on a blind date back in 2016.) Not only has Markle mastered office-appropriate outfits and laid-back looks alike, but she's been spotted carrying an Everlane leather tote that goes with practically any ensemble.

While we think The Husband Shirt is as close to perfect as the royal newlyweds themselves, Misha Nonoo stands by their humble claim that it's anything but. According to the shirt's description, the customizable design "has a wild side" and the "metal button closures are specifically designed to easily transition from day to play."
