We don’t like to get political over here at Who What Wear, but being the female-led company that we are, there’s an undeniable excitement in the air about having a woman in the presidential race. Toss that in the ring with our love for a good throwback outfit and you have the angle of today’s story: Hillary Clinton’s very best style moments.
We’ve always spotlighted first-lady style (hi, Michelle Obama), but now that we can say it’s a possibility to spotlight the first female president’s fashions, we’re jumping at the opportunity. We dug through the archives to see what Clinton wore over the last few decades, and what we found was a fresh, youthful assortment of outfits. No matter your political inclinations, we hope you get a kick out of today’s post, and don’t forget to tell us which ensemble feels most nostalgic to you in the comments.
