It was just officially announced today that actress and activist Meghan Markle is engaged to Prince Harry, but her influence in the fashion world has already begun. It's no secret that everything Markle's future sister-in-law Kate Middleton touches (as in, wears) turns to sold-out gold, so it's no surprise that the world has already become acutely interested in what Markle wears, especially since she made her public debut with Prince Harry in September at the Invictus Games in Canada. Case in point, Harper's Bazaar UK just reported that at that event, Markle wore a pair of round sunglasses by Finlay & Co. (as pictured above), a London-based eyewear brand. Lo and behold, the brand just divulged that since Markle wore its Percy sunglasses, they've seen sales increase by a whopping 1000%.

While this is certainly an early indicator of Markle's sartorial influence, it doesn't hurt that the $180 round shades are as timeless, versatile, and flattering as they come. It also comes as no surprise that the sunglasses are currently out of stock until January 31, 2018, but luckily, they're available in five other equally versatile color options.
