Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton wore a coordinated crewneck shell top and suit in white at the Wells Fargo Center on Thursday.
The 58-year-former first lady of the U.S., stated her case to become the 44th president of the U.S., aside of becoming the first female one. She was a vision in her pristine white pantsuit, which indicated new beginnings.
Hillary Clinton paired her blazer with matching boot-cut pants, WWD reports. She accessorized with a delicate sterling silver necklace and small matching hoop earrings. Designer Nina McLemore has been taking care of the presidential nominee’s sartorial style over the years.
She is always seen in pantsuits, which has evolved from her being first lady of the U.S. to currently the Democratic presidential nominee.
Hillary’s power-dressing style is thanks to McLemore, who is known for her “specifically perfectly tailored blazers.” According to the designer, her blazers “help women to navigate what she calls the ‘C-suite’.
Hillary Clinton has mastered the art of high-powered boardroom dressing with style, ease and confidence. Through her white pantsuit, she made a political statement of “new beginnings” for America. It is not known whether her suit was by McLemore.
Hillary Clinton has worn McLemore’s suits on many occasions like her bold turquoise jacket she wore to meet the South Korean president Lee Myung-Bak when she was secretary of state. She mostly wears a pink blazer for her frequent TV appearances.
“The first message that women need to learn at a young age is that if they’re serious about their careers they need to dress a certain way. The fashion industry has adopted this very sexually provocative image so if you look at clothes in retail it’s very hard to find clothes that are projecting a powerful confident image,” said Nina McLemore. She added that for Hillary, “fashion is not her strength,” The Telegraph reports.
Nina McLemore has a few tips to dress for the White House:
- Blue is the color to stick to for everyone, as a person can’t go wrong with the color.
- You need to dress like you are serious about your career.
- According to McLemore, a great jacket can just make the right statement.
- It is always best to understand what works for you, and dress accordingly, and be consistent with the style.
