With her announcement that she is running for president in 2016, Hillary Clinton has emerged as new style icon, especially for women over 50s.
 
Following her announcement, the 67-year old grandmother and former first lady of the US has caused a 27 per cent increase in tailoring, according to a recent JD Williams State of the Nation report.
 
The report, which surveyed women aged 50 and above, found that Hillary Clinton is the new style icon driving womenswear sales.
 
Clinton’s style is simple: prefers classic separates and tailoring but mixes them with bold colours and statement jewellery which help her look fresh and modern.
 
Commenting on Clinton’s style, Carie Barkhuizen, spokesperson for JD Williams, says, “She has moved on from the dreaded scrunchie and inspired a nation of over 50s with her inspirational attitude to ageing.”
 
However, this is not the first time that Hillary has become a fashion icon. Much before she met the former president Bill Clinton, she was seen wearing bug-eye glasses and brightly coloured pants with occasional stripes.
 
When she became the First Lady of the US in January 1993, television screens and newsstands flashed her cardigans, pantsuits, costume jewellery and the headbands.
 
In fact, she is said to have been photographed wearing monochrome pantsuits in various colours, especially during her years as senator and secretary of state. (RKS)
