With the final presidential debate set for tonight and election day right around the corner, it’s now more important than ever that Hillary Clinton conveys to the American public that she’s the perfect woman for the job.
While the Secretary of State has never had any problems dressing for the job she wants (those pantsuits have POTUS written all over them), Reebok had a few athleisure-inspired suggestions for how Clinton could give her look a sportier update, and perhaps attract a few more style-conscious millennial votes in the process.
According to a release from the brand: “Focused. Nimble. Cool. Calm. All attributes that both elite athletes and successful debaters need to survive the heat of battle.” And sure, we guess we could compare her to an Olympian (at least in terms of stamina).
To bring her pantsuits into the 21st century, sportswear future, Reebok suggests construct everything out of their ActivChill fabric to keep Clinton cool as a cucumber, while giving her some very modern detailing like a mech neckline, a strappy sports bra, and swapping out her blouse and slacks for a very streamlined jumpsuit.
Reebok’s Senior Director of Brand Management, Inga Stenta, said of the brand’s designs for the potential first Madame President, “We wanted to imagine a collection of pantsuits that highlighted power and strength. Women like Clinton are tough and unapologetic. Although we don’t often see candidates sweat, the bright lights of the debate and the pressure of the national stage can raise temperatures. Performance wear seems to be the perfect choice for situations like this.”
In the end, not only has Reebok given HRC some food for thought when it comes to some modern, trend-centric updates on her tried and true conservative pantsuit, but if the brand has anything to say about it, come January, everyone will be wanting to rock their Hil-leisure track suit.
