Welcome back to Fashion Philosophy! This week we’ll take a look at the style of one of America’s most powerful women, Hillary Clinton.
Regardless of one’s political views, Hillary Clinton is an excellent source of fashion inspiration for all of us ladies with summer jobs that require more professional outfits. She’s a smart, tough, and classy, with a can-do attitude — an excellent role model for us modern women.
Today, I’ll tell you all about Hillary Clinton’s accomplishments as well as break down the elements of her personal style. Plus, I’ve created four Hillary-inspired outfits that work perfectly for a summer job or internship. Read on to learn more!
Brightly-colored pants are everywhere this season and for this week’s Fabulous Find, I found a super-trendy and budget-friendly pair of neon coral khakis.
These Old Navy trousers are a cropped “boyfriend skinny” style, making them the perfect mix of casual and polished. Also, these are the type of pants I can see working with a lot of different fashion aesthetics — from boho, to classic, to feminine — meaning these khakis are so, so versatile.
Not a fan of coral? No worries, Old Navy has a bunch more colors — neutrals and brights — in stock over on the site. Simply scroll on down to check out the trousers, as well as three cute ways to style this Fab Find for spring:

Pastels and springtime seem to go hand-in-hand, so for this week’s Fabulous Find, we’ve found an on-trend and versatile lavender-hued blouse. The cream-colored trim creates a pretty contrast on this sleeveless, button-front top, while the lace yoke adds a soft and romantic vibe. This blouse can work with anything from jeans to shorts and skirts, plus — at just $ 17 – this JCPenney blouse is quite the steal!

Welcome back to Fashion Philosophy! I don’t know about you guys, but I’m a huge pirate fan. I’m a sucker for a good pirate movie and have always enjoyed reading up on pirate lore.
Classic piracy was always a predominately male enterprise, but that’s not to say that there weren’t a fair amount of awesome female pirates. Grace O’Malley, The Terrible Alvilda, Ching Shih and Charlotte de Berry were just a handful of women who terrorized the seas. (Alvilda even had an all-woman crew!)
Even though temperatures across the continental United States have been less than spring-like, the weather report is bound to perk up soon. As soon as it does, we’re bringing out the dresses and shorts! In hopes that posting about warm temperatures will help them arrive sooner, here are four outfits to get you in the mood for spring. Keep in mind, you likely already have similar items in your closet, so most of these outfits will ring in for a lot less than $ 100.
Outfit 1: $ 93.44

NBC’s Parks and Recreation is one seriously underrated comedy. Now in its fifth season, Parks follows the ordinary (yet awesome) adventures of a group of city government employees, and it is consistently one of the funniest shows on TV. (Really, though, with Amy Poehler in the starring role, how could it not be?)
Like HBO’s Girls, Parks and Rec is often praised for its authentic styling and diverse characters. From Leslie’s Hilary Clinton-esque power suits, to Tom’s fashionista flair, to April’s surprisingly sweet wardrobe, “Parks”, style-wise, has something for everybody.

Every other week, I break down the best of TV fashion, featuring my favorite looks from the last two weeks.
Every obsession must begin somewhere. With my love for musicals, that moment came at the tender age of 6, when a visiting relative accidentally left a cast recording of Les Misérables at my house. Though the sweeping themes of redemption, love, justice, freedom, and morality went right over my little head, I was smitten.
Sixteen years later, my adoration of the play has only grown. When the film adaptation of the Broadway musical was first announced, I couldn’t decide whether I was thrilled or scandalized by the notion. However, the adaptation – in theaters now – definitely didn’t disappoint! (Although I have to say that, compared to the stage version, it’s a much more sobering experience to see scenes of horrific poverty, desperation, and violence played out in graphic realism.)
Note: we’ve previously covered fashion inspired by the stage version of Les Misérables in the Stage Inspiration series, but this post will focus on the 2012 movie adaptation.
