4 Ways to Incorporate Political Style Into Your Wardrobe
With all the talk about the current political candidates, it makes me think about how the fashion industry has made an impact on politics and vice versa. Whether it’s a famous designer creating one-of-a-kind pieces for the first lady or it’s something as simple as the vice-president wearing a hot pink tie, fashion plays a huge part in politics. It’s about moderation and making it fit your lifestyle.
Here are 4 easy ways to bring that presidential look to your everyday wear.
1. Keep classic silhouettes in mind. A-line and shift dresses are your friend. They look good on any body shape, at any age. Spice them up with modern prints, textured fabrics, and trim.
2. If you don’t have one already, a must-have is a small sewing kit. That one loose button or hanging thread won’t stand a chance when you are prepared…or if you’d rather not go through the hassle, visit your local cleaners and their seamstress will fix any tailoring issues.
3. The power of the pantsuit still rings true. A monochromatic look will speak volumes when in a room of your constituents. Modernize the look with a pair of high-waisted flared leg trousers.
4. Accessorize, Accessorize, Accessorize!
The way to really build up your political career (or at least look like it) is to use accessories that work cohesively with the outfit but also grab attention as stand alone pieces. The Angi Satchel not only compliments the structured style of political wear but demonstrates the classic lady-like style when worn at the crease of the arm or at the wrist.
