<span style="font-weight: 400;">As First Lady of the United States, she often wore the appropriate, conservative fashion of the 90’s. An American fashion version of Princess Diana; it was common for Hillary to wear pearls, headbands, and soft, feminine colors. </span>

<span style="font-weight: 400;">In early 2001, Hillary won her seat as a Senator for the state of New York, and smart pant suits were added to her closet arsenal. Minimalistic with clean lines became her aesthetic of choice while in office, with the occasional pop of color. </span>
