National Pantsuit Day Is a Real Thing and It's Happening Today
There comes a time in every woman's life where she has to don a pantsuit—and today is that day. That's right, ladies: Oct. 22 has been declared National Pantsuit Day. It even has official web domain and an epic tagline ("b*tch, pleats"), so you know it's legit. According to the site, the one-of-a-kind event will consist of people taking to the streets wearing "awesome, '90s-fabulous thrift-store ladies' pantsuits" in support of the 2016 democratic presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton.
Why? Because, as every Clinton supporter well knows, she appreciates a good pantsuit above all else, and the gathering also hopes to ignite a national movement that encourages young people to vote. To do so, the organizers are partnering with Daybreaker, the early-morning dance party collective, and have confirmed marches in New York, Philadelphia, Detroit, Los Angeles, Boston, Dallas, and San Francisco, with more expected to be added.
If you can't make it to any of the aforementioned cities, you can still participate thanks to social media. Snap a photo of yourself and your friends in your pantsuits and upload it to your app of choice using the hashtag #NationalPantsuitDay. If you don't own a pantsuit, the site also encourages "professional attire that would make your mother proud," "sweet, sweet matching tops/bottoms (matchsets encouraged)," and/or "Hillary gear for days." Spread the word, people.
