Today Americans vote to decide who will be their next president. Sounds important. Maybe you’re thinking, as you might with any important occasion, “I would like to go, but I don’t know what to wear.” So I have put together this handy FAQ to help you with your decision:
“Can I wear red, white, and blue?”
Yes, go vote in that. Navy suit, white shirt, maroon tie is a classic, tasteful combo.
“I only have a grey suit, can I vote in that? Is there a red, white, and blue combo that will work for me?”
Yes, go vote in that. Blue shirt, maroon tie, and white handkerchief is another classic, tasteful, combo.
“What if I want to wear red, white, and blue, but spandex?”
Yes, go vote in that. One of America’s greatest heroes wore precisely this outfit.
“Red doesn’t work for my complexion. I would like to wear just blue and white.”
Yes, you can vote in that. Navy suit, white shirt, and a navy tie make an impeccable outfit.
“I was thinking more like…blue jeans and a white t-shirt. Can I vote in that?”
Yes, you can vote in that.
“Actually I can’t find my blue jeans. All I have are pajama pants.”
No problem, you can vote in that.
“And the t-shirt has some holes in it…also it’s got Teletubbies on it.”
Don’t worry, you can vote in that.
“Are you sure? I feel like I’m not respecting the moment if I’m not dressed appropriately.”
The only way to disrespect the moment is by not voting. A huge number of people around the world don’t have the right to vote. You do, whether you’re wearing a suit of finely tailored Super 160s or a suit of wrinkled pajamas. Go vote.
