Meghan Markle is a sucker for shirt dresses! 

Since announcing her pregnancy and kicking off her Australia, Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand tour with Prince Harry, the Duchess of Sussex has been wearing the button-down frock for multiple occasions -- four times to be exact. 

From bright blue to stripes to polka dots to olive green, the style star opted for the elegant A-line, waist-cinching silhouette that flatteringly drapes over her growing baby bump and never fails to look appropriate and chic thanks to its modest midi length. 

Even if you're not expecting, the shirt dress is a wardrobe staple every woman should add to her closet. Whether you need a new easy, throw-on piece for the office or are heading to brunch with the girls, the elevated number can be dressed up or down for any season.

Pair them with knee boots now, swap for pumps in the evening and sport with sandals for spring next year -- it's a timeless piece that looks good at any age and on any body type.
