Hillary Clinton's white pantsuit could be a shout out to suffragettes



Hillary Clinton is a self-professed pantsuit aficionado.

She is also the first female U.S. presidential nominee -- and to accept the nomination at the Democratic convention, she wore a white pantsuit. 

Business of Fashion reports that Clinton has been consulting Vogue  Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour on what she wears for important events during the campaign.

What's more, as Quartz reports, white was the color of the suffragettes, making her color choice that much more significant.

For candidates today, their image is scrutinized just as closely as their actions.

As BoF puts it, "Clothing can support a politician's agenda... or undermine it."

With her all-white wardrobe, Clinton is setting the tone for her agenda.

Meanwhile, daughter Chelsea Clinton, wore a dress by French label Rouland Mouret.

The cost of and designer behind her all-white pantsuit is unclear. BoF reports Clinton's campaign normally pays for her clothes, typically made by U.S. designers.
