Street Style: Day 1 at the Republican National Convention

5 years ago

The style quotient was high inside and outside the Republican National Convention on Day 1. From reporters in stylish galoshes to delegates in tailored leather blazers, storm conditions didn’t dampen (pun intended) the style of GOP convention attendees.

Day 1 Trend: Lots of blue sheath dresses on women (interesting considering blue is usually associated with the Democratic Party) and high-end cowboy hats on men.
