We tend to underestimate the power and symbolism of fashion within major historical moments; however, we can’t ignore what we saw this morning.

Hillary Clinton appeared at The New York Hotel with her husband, former President Bill Clinton, to address the nation after a devastating loss for an opportunity to lead the United States Of America. And their wardrobe choices were as strategic as their words.

Hillary Clinton arrived in her signature pantsuit look, with lapels being a regal purple. Bill Clinton, similarly, showed solidarity with a purple tie. Purple is a color with multiple meanings — not only is the color of royalty, but it is also the color of mourning. The deep color is also one of wisdom and dignity; two characteristics that Secretary Clinton represented on the podium.

Hillary Clinton was undoubtedly the most qualified person to be President of the United States of America, however, a majority of Americans were ready to go in another direction. Her dignity and grace throughout her concession speech was in alignment with her color choice.

Lastly, purple represents bipartisanship – it’s red and blue together.

Hopefully, like this color was able to create something beautiful from red and blue, America can do the same.
