Repping Your Political Stance: Outfit Ideas For A Political Badass

Style can be considered a reflection of an individual’s personality. In fact, individuals often gain a perception of a stranger based on how the stranger is dressed. For example, a person wearing all black, and a trench coat with combat boots and choker may be judged as “goth” or a girl in a long, flowing, loose dress with bold flowers wearing a flower crown may be perceived as “hippie”. While this is not always the case, the way an individual dresses can sometimes be an indicator of their personality. They can also be reflective of our political ideologies. Since the midterm elections are coming up on November 6, 2018, it is important for us to vocalize our beliefs and advocate for change by voting. Here are some outfits ideas for girls to wear to the polling booths (or around campus) that show what a badass you are!
