The 2012 presidential debate is just around the corner, and if you know anything about the history of these debates then you understand wardrobe selection is critical. Kennedy vs. Nixon is a great example of the power and influence that fashion holds. Kennedy to the left wore an all black suit that demanded the attention of the audience. On the contrary, Nixon’s suit matched the grey backdrop and lets just say his answers didn’t seem as strong. There was much speculation on whether or not it made a difference, but needless to say, Kennedy went on to win the candidacy. Nevertheless, the question still stands, was it his choice of outfit that made him the winner that night?
