WATCH: American women are wearing white as an homage to the suffragette movement which fought for women’s right to vote.
Since the third presidential debate on Oct. 22 when Hillary Clinton donned a much-lauded white pantsuit by Ralph Lauren, Democratic supporters across the United States have embraced the monochromatic look and dubbed it “suffragette white.”
As citizens made their way to the polls today, many took selfies showing them in white garb, posted them to Twitter and tagged them #WearWhiteToVote.

This isn’t the first fashion trend Clinton is credited with inspiring. In the last two weeks, secret Facebook groups called Pantsuit Nation have popped up and #pantsuitnation has been trending on Twitter, all in homage to the presidential hopeful’s famous penchant for pantsuits.
It’s almost as though Michelle Obama is passing her fashionable baton on to the next resident of the White House.
