Looks for Less Tuesday: Vote for Fashion!

November is just around the corner, and as Presidential campaigns heat up, the ladies are stealing the spotlight with their knack for fashion. For this week’s Looks for Less Tuesday, let’s explore the styles of these vivacious political pundits and a few better halves.

Cindy McCain

Wife of John McCain, Republican Nominee

Republican First-Lady Hopeful and former beauty queen Cindy McCain shows that she has a few tricks up her sleeve. She made headlines with her estimated $300,000 canary-yellow outfit she wore at the Repulican National Convention. But her gorgeous outfits don’t stop there. Here, she is seen wearing a classic tweed suit complemented with a conservative turtleneck and opaque tights.

Her shoes tend to be classic, with subtle detailing around the toe.

If you like her look, you’ll love the Franco Sarto Gabriel, which rings in at a fraction of her outfit at $84.95 on The timeless patent upper melds perfectly with the contrasting piping surrounding the open toe, with just a touch of pizazz with a lace-up toe.

Michelle Obama

Wife of Barack Obama, Democratic Nominee

Michelle Obama

On the other end of the political spectrum sits fashionista and Democratic First-Lady Hopeful Michelle Obama. Her timeless style has been likened to the trendsetting Jackie O. She’s known for participating in current fashion trends without being too gaudy or flashy.

What’s most unique about her style, though, is the fact that she rarely sports pumps. She shows that you can look elegant and put-together wearing simple flats.

If you love this look, try on a similar pair–the Sam Edelman Erica–for only $89.95 at The gorgeous patent upper has some subtle texture with a reptile print and a shiny buckle over the open toe. And slingbacks aren’t only for stilettos anymore! This fab flat shows that it can be both stylish and comfortable.

Sarah Palin

Republican Vice-Presidential Hopeful

Sarah Palin

Can a woman be both fashion-forward and politically influential? When Sarah Palin was announced as John McCain’s running mate, the question was answered: Yes, it is possible. Palin, hailing from Alaska, might have lived far from the country’s fashion epicenters, but that hasn’t stopped her from dressing chic.

Lately, she’s been spotted wearing an array of pumps, from spicy red pumps to the basic black pointed toe.

If you feel your look is more the latter, try on the gorgeous Charles by Charles David MOD, for only $49.95 on This pump has a mid-rise heel post that won’t break your ankles, and a lustrous satin upper to make you sparkle in the light.

Jill Biden

Wife of Joe Biden, Democratic Vice-Presidential Hopeful

Jill Biden

Just because you’re in politics, doesn’t mean you have to have boring footwear! Jill Biden is also known for her fashionable choices, and her shoes are no different!

In this photograph, she sports a pair of neutral and strappy stilettos, which not only elongates her leg, but also emits an air of celebration.

If you want to capture her look, check out the Nina Kyler, only $89.95 on The ultra-thin straps wrap your foot, revealing an open toe, and helping you stay balanced with an ankle strap.
