The purple suit Hillary Clinton wore to the concession speech is symbolic


Throughout her presidential campaign, Clinton's outfits have been symbolic. A popular color for her has been white: the color of the suffragette movement. She wore it when she accepted the nomination at the Democratic National Convention; at the final presidential debate; and on Election Day itself.

While making her concession speech to president-elect Donald Trump and the nation on Wednesday, however, Clinton went with another color: purple. This, too, holds a lot of symbolism.

Purple -- along with white and gold -- are the colors of the National Women's Party according to the New York Times. An early statement by the party stated that purple symbolizes "loyalty, constancy to purpose, unswerving steadfastness to a cause."

While Clinton's speech was met with sadness by many, her outfit was a reminder of what she was fighting for.
