Fashion on the Campaign Trail

I just wanted to post a link to a great article in the Washington Post by Robin Givhan, who won a Pulitzer Prize for her fashion criticism last year (no you didn't read that wrong, fashion IS Pulitzer worthy). The article is an analysis of fashion at the conventions including the men-folk. Givhan note a definite 60s influence on the women's fashion, which she attributes to Mad Men. I've been seeing this 60's flavor all over stores and magazines this season, and I think it may also have something to do with a kind of Camelot-Obama kind of nostalgia. More on that and the fate of the pants-suits later....
