Fashion might feel beside the point on Election Day, but stylish voters used their looks to make statements that were symbolic, personal, and powerful.
I voted as I did so many things this year—in sweatpants. The convenience of the absentee ballot may take a little of the glamour out of the voting process, but it hasn’t divorced the process from fashion entirely. After all, whether it be suffragettes or civil rights activists, fashion has always played a role at the polls. While in 2016, a wave of women voters wore white suits, in tribute to the suffragette uniform, this election cycle seemed more focused on comfort and stability—especially for in-person voters faced with multi-hour waits.
