Fashion in Politics

Fashion and Politics are two areas of American society that has always had the ability to excite and mobilize people. Though the two fields couldn’t be more different, one of policy making and negotiating the other art and self expression, the similarities between the two are undeniable. The Fashion world, as liberating as the insiders claim it to be, is filled with do’s , dont’s and fashion faux pas.  Just as there are rules in Politics so are there rules in fashion. The ” Merriam Webster’s Dictionary defines Fashion as, “social standing or prominence especially as signalized by dress or conduct.” In Politics social standing and prominence is a vital means for persuasion, which essentially is what politics is all about. The American public has always been obsessed with new trends in fashion and equally obsessed with the fashion options whether good or bad of the First Lady and other prominent figures in the world of Politics.
