It’s undeniable: the three classiest things in the world are Meghan Markle, tennis and a great work dress. Thankfully, you can now channel all three at the same time — and at an affordable price, no less. 

Earlier this month, the paparazzi snapped pictures of Meghan Markle supporting best friend Serena Williams at the U.S. Open while wearing the cutest J. Crew dress. The cotton, chambray shirtdress is sustainable, mid-length and totally work appropriate. Plus, it’s super stylish.

And thankfully, buying it wouldn’t eat up your entire paycheck. The outfit clocks in at just $128, pretty reasonable for a professional dress. And think of all the wear. You can dress it up with a blazer or sweater, dress it down with a pair of sandals, or, I don’t know, wear it with a pair of tennis shoes next time you jetset to the Big Apple to support your celebrity BFF. The J. Crew site pairs it with a leather kitten heel (very royal) and a pair of statement earrings. 

Denim looks are everyone’s best friend in the fall, so if you’re looking for a cool weather wardrobe refresh, this is your chance. After all, everyone needs some solid work wardrobe staples. The dress was just restocked, so you better get moving. Everything Meghan Markle wears has a knack for selling out.
