We get that not everyone works in a creative office environment in which jeans are an acceptable wardrobe choice. And even when you do, sometimes it's nice to switch things up. Since most celebrities don't work in offices at all, when we see one serving up outfit inspiration for a conservative environment, we're quick to take notes. One of our favorite examples as of late came when Meghan Markle stepped out for a surprise official appearance with Prince Harry in Northern Ireland.
For the occasion, Markle paired a cream-colored sweater with forest green (because Ireland) fluted pencil skirt and then layered on a draped wool coat. To finished the three-piece outfit, she opted for velvet pumps and a brown top-handle satchel. Markle has a couple more months to go before becoming an official royal, but she's already the unofficial queen of pants, stepping out in a plethora of chic styles for many of her recent appearances, but the polished pencil skirt was a refreshing way to mix things up (it is spring, after all).
