5 Strategic Styling Tips We Picked Up From The Politician

Here’s the thing about politics: It’s all one big performance. Which makes it hard to believe that it took until 2019 for someone to create a captivating show that focuses so sharply on the behind-the-scenes machinations of creating a candidate in the modern era. Enter The Politician, the latest collaboration between Ryan Murphy, Ian Brennan, and Brad Falchuk (better known as the creators of Glee), which has been captivating viewers since it dropped on Netflix last week.

Were we mesmerized by not only the incredible performances from Ben Platt, Lucy Boynton, and Gwyneth Paltrow but also the impeccable styling of each and every character. This key facet in the overall look and feel of The Politician can be attributed to its costume designer, Claire Parkinson. Although her IMDB credits go back to 2011, The Politician marks Claire’s first foray into owning the costume design for an entire series, and we have to say, she definitely earned our vote. 

Below, check out Parkinson’s takeover of the Who What Wear Instagram, in which she answered fan questions and shared sneak peeks on set, and the style tips we learned along the way. Regardless of whether you bleed blue or run red, we can all agree on one thing: We can’t wait to see what Payton Hobart and his perfectly styled supporters are up to (and get dressed up in) for season two.
