If there’s one thing we know, it’s that the worlds of politics and fashion are very much alike: You’re in one month then out the next, appearances are everything, competitiveness abounds and the general public has a distinctly love-hate relationship with both. History shows us that fashion is ruled by politics, and politics are inextricably linked to fashion.
One woman that knows this more than most is Hillary Clinton, First Wife to Bill Clinton back in the ‘90s and subsequent Democratic Presidential nominee. You can’t deny that women in politics have it harder when it comes to dressing—they can’t just throw on a well-tailored suit and run a comb through their hair before making a big speech. But back in the day, Hillary knew (and arguably still knows) how to put together a polished look—a set formula that got her through every meet-and-greet and public appearance.
Incidentally, Hillary’s throwback outfit formula happens to be exactly what we want to be wearing right now: headbands, blazers, statement earrings and roll-neck knits. Clearly, the politician was ahead of her time. She even threw in a little tonal dressing—what could be more 2019? So if you’re a little tired of the repetitive nature of Instagram fashion, journey back with us to the ’90s and discover a whole host of new-season style inspo courtesy of America’s former First Lady.
