It's this particular area of Smart Work's remit that Markle has been working on, partnering with British retailers Marks and Spencer, Jigsaw, and John Lewis & Partners - along with her good friend, US-based fashion designer Misha Nonoo - to create a capsule collection of office-ready attire that will benefit the Smart Works charity.
The capsule line includes the shirt, plants, a blazer, a dress, and a purse.
Her return from maternity leave coincides with the beginning of London fashion week, but after the furore that surrounded her trip on Elton John's private jet, the Duchess of Sussex was not about to make the mistake of facing photographers from the glitz of a catwalk front row.
"When you buy any item in the Smart Set Capsule Collection for Smart Works, the same item will be given to a Smart Works client, and with it, the confidence and support she needs to enter the workforce and take an important step in building a career". Meghan eschewed typical royal style by wearing an outfit that would be at home on any fashionable woman in the poshest neighborhoods: a crisp, white button-down blouse, slim, black slacks, and a matching brown belt and stiletto pumps.More news: Democratic candidates bash Trump's tariffs, but agree China is a problem
'She looked attractive and relaxed and comfortable, and I think it's really essentially who she is, ' Misha said of Meghan's choice of ensemble - which resulted in a surge in sales of the Husband shirt.
The reception was one of her first royal engagements since the birth of her and Harry's son Archie in May. For every item bought during the sale, which will last for at least two weeks, one will be donated to Smart Works, which helps vulnerable women get back into employment.
As we mentioned, Meghan was wearing a blouse and pants from The Smart Set - the latter was designed by Jigsaw and the former, by Misha.

Judi continued: "She holds her hands high as she greets her hosts to act as an announcement gesture to let them know there's a warm greeting involving a partial hug on its way and her raised brows and teeth-baring smile as she chats signal recognition and excitement".More news: European Central Bank cuts interest rates to record low; ASX to rise
Ms Nonoo said: "The duchess told me what she was thinking in terms of a white shirt, that she wanted it to be tailored".
"In convening several companies rather than one, we've demonstrated how we can work collectively to empower each other - another layer to this communal success story, that I am so proud to be a part of".
Saunders said: "Give people what they need to get back into the workplace".
