Hillary Clinton took the stage in white to accept the nomination to be the Democratic Presidential candidate on day four of the Democratic National Convention and the color she wore was symbolic of the history she made that evening.
The color white portrays many qualities her opponent is not known to depict. White represents calm. The color also represents fairness and equality. These attributes are ones that Hillary Clinton would like people to associate with her.
Additionally, suffragettes who fought for women to be able to vote, wore the color white. So the fact she is wearing white pays tribute to these women and the many women have continued to fight for equality and helped her to be the first female presidential nominee.
This suit is by far the most flattering I have ever seen Hillary Clinton wear. She has struggled with her suit style, but everything about this suit worked in her favor. The cut, material and color all looked fantastic. Wearing a great fitting suit, can be critical for a candidate. People will not be caught up on your aesthetics and will be able to focus on your message. The only thing about her white suit designed by Ralph Lauren that people were caught up on, is that she looked amazing.
“Tonight, we’ve reached a milestone in our nation’s march toward a more perfect union: the first time that a major party has nominated a woman for president. Standing here as my mother’s daughter, and my daughter’s mother, I’m so happy this day has come. Happy for grandmothers and little girls and everyone in between. Happy for boys and men because when any barrier falls in America, it clears the way for everyone. When there are no ceilings, the sky’s the limit. So let’s keep going…until every one of the 161 million women and girls across America has the opportunity she deserves to have. Because even more important than the history we make tonight, is the history we will write together in the years ahead.” —Hillary
