The pussy bow has become the most poignant fashion statement you can make this election

Fact-checkers were busy this morning reviewing every claim that Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump made last night in their cage-wrestling style debate. Perhaps one of the oddest facts that came out, however, had nothing to do with policy or even the personal allegations the candidates made against each other.

Rather, it was in regards to Melania Trump’s outfit. The potential First Lady wore a bright pink Gucci blouse that featured a high neck bow known as a “pussy bow.”

Clinton supporters were quick to claim that Melania’s sartorial decision was a slap in the face to her husband and the comments he made in a video leaked this weekend, while Trump supporters argued that she was making a bold statement against the Clintons.

Whatever Melania’s reason for wearing the shirt (a favorite of the late Margaret Thatcher’s), the fact that she did has suddenly made the style culturally and politically relevant. Below, some fierce pussy bows you can wear to make a poignant statement at your next dinner party or even a great Halloween costume.
