male mondays – presidential style

In honor of President’s Day, I thought it would be nice to reflect on the fashions of 3 influential American presidents, that not only brought change to the White House, but originality and style.

1. Theodore Roosevelt was the 26th president of the United States of America and famous for his big personality, “cowboy” persona and robust masculinity. He was part of the Republican party and best known for expanding the powers of the presidency and supporting public interest in the face of big business. His style reflected that of his legacy with his 3 piece suits, iconic no-rim glasses and famous mustache. He was a manly man indeed.

2. John F. Kennedy was the 35th president of the United States of America and the youngest elected into office at the age of 43. JFK was also the only Catholic president and only president to winner a Pulitzer Prize. He had a challenging presidency which included such world changing events as the Bay of Pigs Invasion, the Cuban Missile Crisis, the building of the Berlin Wall, the Space Race, the African American Civil Rights Movement, and early stages of the Vietnam War. He’s iconically known as the most handsome president of all time and his New England style supported that opinion. Always in sharp suits or polo shirts, JFK was something out of a JCrew catalogue and that was a great thing.

3. Barack Obama is the 44th and current president of the United States of America and the first African American to hold office. He is a graduate of Harvard Law School where he was the president of the Harvard Law Review. Most famously known thus far, as the man who got Bin Laden, Obama has some time left in office before possibly being re-elected, so we’ll see where his legacy takes him. Style wise, the man is one cool cat. A product of the 70s and 80s, young Obama rocked a fro and stylish duds to boot. Today, he keeps it classy with well-fitted suits and presidential ties, while all eyes are on our First Lady and her fabulous fashion taste. 
Happy Presidents Day!
