Meghan Markle has her work outfits down pat. 

The bride-to-be donned a $298 wool coat from J. Crew, a white All Saints turtleneck sweater and a pair of skinny trousers from Alexander Wang on Thursday for an outing in Birmingham for International Women's Day. She completed the look with a pair of Manolo Blahnik black pumps and an Altuzarra leather bag. As for her hair, she mixed it up by sporting a deep side part instead of her usual center part with big, princess-like curls.

It's not the first time we've seen Meghan wear this combination before. In fact, she's turned this look into her official work wardrobe! 

During her visit to Scotland last month, the former "Suits" star she Burberry tartan coat, Veronica Beard trousers and a crossbody bag by Scottish brand Strathberry. In Marks & Spencer.

Celebrity stylist Lucas Armitage told Daily Mail that the "fail-safe look" is meant to put all the attention on her work rather than her outfit. 

"While she looks suitably chic perhaps she wants her important work to take center stage today," Armitage said

Meghan's International Women's Day appearance marks her seventh appearance with Harry, and it's the fifth time she's worn trousers. Her most memorable look, perhaps, was the Alexander McQueen suit she donned for a black-tie affair last month.
