When Markle wore a classic formula of a white shirt, skinny jeans, and tan pointed ballet pumps, Google searches for the denim brand she had chosen—Mother—rose by 60% that week. And the day after Meghan showcased her designer denim of choice, Mother's website traffic increased by over 200%, and the brand experienced a stellar October, beating its own sales forecast by almost 20%.
