Duchess Meghan's California-cool outfit from over the weekend is our Spring inspo

A Meghan classic.

By Jess Pullar
She's since moved to Los Angeles to pursue a life a little less in the spotlight, but still, Duchess Meghan isn't failing to provide us with some peak fashion inspiration.
The Duchess of Sussex was photographed helping out at a charity event in LA late last week, pictures of which have since gone viral as the world revels in the rare sighting of the royal.
There was plenty of things to take in when looking (read: pouring over every detail) of the unique set of pics - and of course, one thing stood out more than anything else: Her outfit.
Meghan and Prince Harry stepped out to help LA charity Baby2Baby, an organisation providing basic necessities for families including nappies, wipes and clothes.
The event was held as a drive-through (in light of COVID times) at the Dr Owen Lloyd Knox Elementary School.

During the event, the pair helped school children pick out backpacks, handed out supplies and helped with other extra bits and pieces throughout the day.
According to sources, the sizzling 32 degree heat in LA didn't stop the pair's determination to ensure every single person was attended to.

And of course, we couldn't look past the Duchess' outfit choice of the day.
Wearing the perfect trans-seasonal ensemble (she must have been quite warm given the heat), Meghan's white shirt and khaki short combo has officially provided us with all the inspo we never knew we needed for the Spring months to come.

Ever the queen of the humble white shirt, Meghan opted for a Victoria Beckham style for the days events.
She paired it with some casual Adidas Stan Smith Sneakers and was safety conscious by adding a blue and white striped face mask, which was designed by a NYC-based company named Royal Jelly - a company founded by black females.

Of course, we can't go past a new Meghan outfit without taking it upon ourselves to recreate it with our own, affordable twist.
