The Duchess of Sussex, 38, got off in yet another shirt dress when she visited an art studio in Johannesburg today on day eight of the African tour.

The royal, who arrived for four months without son Archie, or husband Prince Harry, opted for a midi dress of $ 148 (£ 120) with buttons on the front in indigo by designer Aritzia.

The mother-of-one combined the shirt dress with red suede slingbacks, which cost £ 129 by Everlane, and adorned with a distinctive pair of black studs with earrings she had picked up in Cape Town from a local & # 39; ethical & # 39; designer, Pichulik, for just £ 46.

Exclusively speaking to FEMAIL, a number of stylists have unveiled the wardrobe's tricks – including a shirt dress to show off her hourglass figure, mid-length to hide unwanted attention, v-neck to show off a waisted waist and cap sleeves to wear add femininity.

& # 39; The best thing about these shirt dresses is that they are very flattering for the figures of many people & # 39 ;, expert Rochelle White explains. & # 39; They have a good fit and with Meghan she makes smart choices when matching and fitting each of her dresses. & # 39;

And it's not the first time she chose a shirt dress during the 10-day Royal Africa tour – like her carried an olive oil to the ground during a visit to the Auwal Mosque on Heritage Day on 24 September.

She also turned on the same loose-fitting £ 525 Veronica Beard & # 39; Cary & # 39; dress when she arrived in District 6 museum in Cape Town on September 23, as she did in Tonga last year when she was pregnant with Archie.

According to stylist Susie Halser, who runs Styled By Susie, the shirt dress is the perfect option for an hourglass silhouette because it shows off their & # 39; perfect proportions & # 39 ;.

& # 39; Meghan wore a shirt dress with a blue belt that accentuated her small waist. This is also a nod to her chic style and personality, & she said.

& # 39; It is feminine with just the right amount of masculinity to make it a powerful piece. It ensures that she looks sleek and timeless without too much frills or hassle. & # 39;

V-NECK

During the Royal Africa tour, the mother-of-one also opted for different ensembles with a V-neck finish – whether it's a dress or a classic jumpsuit.

& # 39; She has beautiful curves and a waisted waistline and must choose a cut that shows off this, & # 39; Susie explained.

& # 39; A V-neck is flattering for its shape, because high necklines on an hourglass can enlarge the bust and upper body. & # 39;

She added: & # 39; It shows off her beautiful cleavage and combines a conservative mid-length dress nicely. & # 39;

MIDI LENGTH

Another style that Meghan likes in the last days is the midi-length dress or skirt, which stylists suggest to hide unwanted attention.

The duchess attended an engagement in Cape Town in a striking monochrome ensemble, consisting of a weekend of £ 145 J. Midi-skirt and £ 66 tank top by Misha Nonoo.

The minimal yet chic knit was characterized by an elastic waistband, A-line silhouette and contrasting stripes that created the illusion of pleats.

& # 39; A midi length is practical and conservative, but is still trendy & # 39 ;, Susie explains.

& # 39; This allows Meghan to wear flat pumps or wedges because it works with any shoe. It also complies with the royal dress code of modest zoom lines. & # 39;

HOOD SLEEVES

And according to stylist Susie, a cap sleeve is one of the most flattering sleeve lengths of a woman.

& # 39; It boasts Meghon's tuned arms without exposing too much meat, and it was a suitable choice for when she recently drank tea with Archbishop Desmond Tutu, & # 39; Susie remarked.

"A cap sleeve flatters the arm more than a T-shirt sleeve because it fits looser and adds femininity."

Meanwhile, fashion expert commentator Karine Laudort explained how a cap sleeve works in the same way as a V-neck.

& # 39; V-neck will make you look slimmer and divert attention from the face, just as cap sleeves will flatter the upper part of the body, & # 39; she said. & # 39; This is demonstrated in almost all of Meghan's looks. & # 39;
