Unearthing the Connection between Fashion and Politics

There is no denying the fact that the way you dress can speak volumes about your personality. Politicians, for example, often use fashion as a subconscious way to grab voters’ attention. More often than not, voters also judge candidates based on their looks and dress to make a voting decision.

That being said, it wouldn’t be inappropriate if we say that the role of fashion in the political world is evident. We’ve seen many famous politicians who have earned hundreds and thousands of fan following just because the people around them can easily resonate and communicate with them. In this post, we’ll be highlighting some of America’s top political personalities who seem to use their fashion sense to influence and inspire their followers:

Jackie Kennedy

Jackie Kennedy will always be remembered as a true style icon because of her captivating style and fashion persona that has inspired millions around the world. The First Lady of the U.S. was also regarded as an international icon of style and culture. While Kennedy is believed to be a real diva, her style statement was quite basic and minimal. Short hair, basic skirts, mid-length attires, and formal evening gowns and maxis are her everyday staple clothes. Her legendary pillbox hat and pure white gloves are still famous amongst present-day fashionistas and fashion icons. What sets Kennedy’s style statement apart from the rest of her fellow female politicians is her love for exquisite pearls. While we’ve seen her flaunting precious diamonds with utmost perfection, the way she carried pearls were noticeable and praiseworthy.

As far as the impact of pearls on human nature is concerned, psychologists believe that those who wear pearls are genuine souls – very generous and loving. Dr. Carolyn Mair, a behavioral psychologist and author of The Psychology of Fashion, recently conducted an analysis for Laguna Pearl on the state of fashion and the political environment. In the research, she stated that it’s very common for women to get infatuated with precious gems and stones specially diamonds. However, those who prefer pearls over diamonds tend to be more sophisticated, intellectually and emotionally.

Kennedy’s personality is a true reflection of all these attributes. She was sophisticated, down to earth and absolutely loving and caring for the people around her.

Donald Trump

Power suits, formal business attire, baggy trousers, and lapels – yes we’re talking about the current American president – Donald Trump. Trump’s style statement is quite restrictive and conservative. He seems too obsessed with the traditional clothing that we’ve never seen him experimenting with even colors or silhouettes. According to psychologists, Trump’s fashion statement is the true reflection of his stubborn political decisions and rigid practices. His style is confined to just a few basic staples that revolve around authoritarian dress up and style.

Joe Biden

Unlike Trump, Joe Biden’s fashion taste is quite innovative and fresh. Although Biden perfectly knows how to pull off a formal business look, he seems absolutely confident in his casual jackets and hats. This novelty and freshness are also evident in Biden’s personality and this is perhaps the biggest reason why many people love Biden and his policies.

Elizabeth Warren

Elizabeth Warren is yet another popular political figure who’s known for her simplicity and wisdom. While Warren seems least bothered about modern cuts and silhouettes, she still manages to look incredibly stunning and magnificent in her simple go-to attires like jackets, hoodies, coats, and skirts.

Psychologists believe that Warren’s simple and candid style is the true reflection of her inner strength and beliefs. She looks confident and extremely stylish in whatever she wears. The best thing about warren’s style is that the general public can easily connect with her.

Kamala Harris

Cute and contemporary, Kamala Harris’s fashion statement is all about uniqueness and class. Harris definitely knows how she can persuade her followers with her incomparable fashion taste and heart-melting smile. Her inclination towards precious pearls reflects the bright and pure side of her personality. According to The Pearl Source, pearls symbolize purity, integrity, and loyalty of its wearer and all these aspects are the basic elements of Harris’s personality.

Bernie Sanders

Bernie Sanders with his wise and intellectual image has gained immense popularity in recent times. While Sanders also seems to adore formal clothing just like Trump, his candid attitude towards life has made him one of the most sought-after political figures in the US. He is down to earth, generous and very compassionate towards his peers and followers.

Fashion and politics can never be confiscated as both of them are actually intertwined. While all these politicians are celebrities and people adore them because of their distinguished style persona, some of them, however, tend to be more optimistic and can better connect with the public than others.
