Always a fan of the power suit, the former US Secretary of State used to step out on numerous important occasions in varying shades of the same tailored pantsuit.
In her book What Happened, a recount of her experiences as the Democratic Party’s nominee and general election candidate for 2016 presidency of the United States, Clinton wrote in detail about her love for her signature outfit.
“When I ran for Senate in 2000 and President in 2008, I basically had a uniform: a simple pantsuit, often black, with a colourful shell underneath,” she wrote.
“I did this because I like pantsuits. They make me feel professional and ready to go.”
Along with wearing the same thing as an anti-distraction technique and to minimise time spent ‘overthinking’, Clinton cited one other major reason for wearing a pantsuit every day: to help her fit in with the male politicians.
“I also thought it would be good to do what male politicians do and wear more or less the same thing every day,” she wrote.
Also amongst the ranks of fashion royalty with a penchant for a work uniform, Venezuelan designer Carolina Herrera considers her signature white Oxford shirt her “security blanket”.
“Fashion is supposed to be for the everyday. I have worn the white shirt since I was very young,” Herrera told Instyle.
She also praised the classic white shirt for its easy day-to-night versatility.
“It doesn’t always look like a white shirt even though it is. With trouser or a short skirt it can be worn for day and then later with evening jewels and a ball skirt for night. Sometimes I see people wearing sequins for lunch, and I think there is a right time and place for what you are wearing. You must follow that in whatever you wear,” she said.
