Meghan Markle Just Revealed the Perfect £20 Work Dress From M&S

Meghan's first official engagement following the end of her maternity leave was to launch her new Smart Works capsule collection - and she certainly looked the part.

Instead, she entered John Lewis on Oxford Street in London via the back door, smart but low-key in a £120 pair of black pants and an £85 white shirt with rolled-up sleeves, to launch the Smart Set, a collection of interview-appropriate clothing for unemployed women looking to enter the workplace.

The Duchess of Sussex held a press conference in London to launch the new line while wearing two pieces from the collection, a white button-down shirt from Misha Nonoo and some slim-fit black trousers from Jigsaw.

The 38-year-old says that the project is in the same vein of the work that she and Prince Harry will continue to do - strong community-based projects - and they will share more about that next year when they launch their foundation, Sussex Royal.

Speaking ahead of the event, Meghan said: "Since moving to the United Kingdom, it has been deeply important to me to meet with communities and organizations on the ground doing meaningful work and to try to do whatever I can to help them amplify their impact". Today, The Duchess, alongside @SmartWorksCharity - in partnership with @InsideJigsaw, @JohnLewisandPartners, @MarksandSpencer and @MishaNonoo - are incredibly proud to reveal to everyone, #TheSmartSet - a five piece capsule collection that will equip the Smart Works clients with the classic wardrobe pieces to help them feel confident as they mobilise back into the work space.

She also thanked the four brands involved for "placing goal over profit and community over competition" while taking part in "this special project".

After giving birth to her first son Archie just four months ago, Meghan Markle has returned to work.

Meghan has been working with charity Smart Works, which provides interview clothes and training to women who are out of work.

Meghan is its patron and has a long-standing commitment to supporting women's empowerment.

For every item bought from the range, which will be on sale for "at least two weeks", according to the palace, one will be donated to Smart Works.

"Her smiles are very direct, involving the kind of knowing head-tilt of recognition that suggests she's happy to be back at work".

This Thursday, September 12, the royal regarded stylish in a white gown, shirt, black trousers, and tan heels that matched her belt.

Serena chatted exclusively with Access Hollywood at her "S by Serena" fashion show and raved about her royal pal.

Meghan has worn it several times: Twice during her royal tour of Australia with Prince Harry in October 2018, and this past January at the Royal Albert Hall in London. More precisely it's about the launch of a work capsule wardrobe range for the not-for-profit organisation Smart Works.

Meghan Markle's much-anticipated foray into fashion design has finally arrived.
