The most exciting moment for women in politics is the unprecedented democratic victory by U.S. Vice President-elect Kamala Harris, and the world-renowned Carolina Herrera white pantsuit she wore during her first speech to the nation. Her pantsuit is a nod to the Suffragette movement as a pledge to carry the torch for women’s rights during a time distinguished as both historical and significant, her look will be remembered and looked to for generations to come.
Following in the footsteps of her predecessors, styled in a classic white pantsuit, Harris plays homage to all of the women who worked to secure and protect their rights to vote for over a century, and her message is very clear. Women have made pivotal strides in leadership, and as the very first Black Vice President in congress, it is truly symbolic to show up on this day in an iconic white pantsuit, as a reflection of purity, feminine power and equality.
An apparent fashion statement, yet equally powerful narrative of freedom, Harris’ style is a vision that will last a lifetime. The utmost respect goes to her stylist for pairing the satin pussy-bow blouse with the Herrera single-breasted blazer and trousers with a nude pointy-toe Manolo Blahnik heel that I believe every woman needs in her closet. Styled with intention in a white pantsuit that represents renewal during a time where being a woman of color, with equal rights in politics has become the highest honor.
