Who wears it best?



Presidential fashion

We have long closely followed presidential fashion in and around the world.

We saw Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe standing out from the rest at the Indian-African forum summit last year by not following the status quo of wearing the Indian traditional Kurta Sherwani attire while all the leaders present donned it.

This evidently shows that a public figure’s fashion choices reflects or conveys their intent and state of mind.

We have seen our President Ian Khama wearimg his safari gear as if to say: ‘Hey, I am trying to reduce taxes, look at me. You can talk to me. I am one of you”.

Moreover, we have seen vice president, Mokgweetsi Masisi donning a flat hip cap which somehow indirectly spoke to the youth.

We have seen US President Barack Obama’s button-down shirt with rolled-up sleeves, that could mean: “hey, I am a people’s person, you can approach me”, “I am relatable”.

Fashion speaks to an audience and transforms mindsets.

A color choice plays a significant role as it states a circumscribed choice.

A simple Botswana flag lapel can stimulate an audience visually, while a poor tailored suit can cause more damage.

Today we ask, whose voice are you following because of their fashion choices?
