As Alex discussed last week, she always dresses up for voting…We invited readers to send us their sartorial civic expressions, and got pics from Missouri, Illinois, Ohio, and Massachusetts! Send us yours when your state votes! #sartorialscholars or tag us on Insta: @sartorialscholars or Twitter: @sartorialschols.

There seemed to be two major trends: 1) denim/chambray, which has an interesting history with being ‘American’ (more to come on that) 2) colors or patterns inspired by the U.S. flag: red, white, and blue, obviously, but also stripes. And of course, the real reason we vote: the voting sticker! [joking].

Presented with poster’s original comment on social media.

Jackie: [Did I dress]*Up*, no. Thematically, yes! This isn’t a day-of picture, but this is more or less what I wore. Midwest is Best.
