Purple seems to be the statement color of the political season
Looks like US President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris’ leadership is off to a stylish start, as political figures attend the 2021 Inauguration Day in their best garbs.
Fashion plays a lot in a politician’s life these days. After all, the clothes we wear present a message as fashion itself makes dressing up a form of communication. Taking it to the political stage, fashion can be a protest. Just think of our very own State of the Nation Address.
For what it’s worth, wearing the right outfit on the first day on the job is the best way to start. And as the US turns another chapter in its history, country leaders and inauguration attendees did not disappoint on their first day.
It’s all about the classic look for US President Joe Biden in Ralph Lauren and First Lady Dr. Jill Biden in a turquoise number by Markarian.
