Pantsuit-palooza The Sartorial symbol that took Social Media by Storm

The ballots are being cast and counted, but one clear winner has already emerged: the pantsuit. In a show of support and solidarity with Hillary Clinton, voters (and a few civic-minded canine companions) have elected this ensemble the fashion statement of 2016 by donning pantsuits to the polls and sharing photos with #pantsuitnation and #pantsuitpower on social media and in private Facebook groups. More than 40,000 people shared their pantsuit photos on Instagram leading up to the election and the 2 Million-deep Facebook group provided a steady stream of voting photos and anecdotes.

Not just relegated to virtual communities, organizers even designated meet-up locations across the country where pantsuit-clad men and women gathered to take selfies and group pictures. Photographers even donated their time and services to capture pantsuit-clad voters in a nationwide photography project. Check out the scene at San Francisco's meet up location:

In an election marred by divisive hate speech, we love this social media activation for bringing a little levity to the day and celebrating daring women and their powerful sartorial symbols. Check out some of our favorites #pantsuitnation photos.
