Fashion Saga of Indian Politics

What you wear gives an outlook of your personality to others. There are various meanings people draw out from the fabric you wear, the patterns you sport, and the design you flaunt. This is why it is very important for politicians to shrewdly choose their OOTD. Wear anything simple and humble and you will attract comparison of Gandhian levels; wear anything flashy or flamboyant and you would make the headlines for all the wrong reasons. Over the years, key political figures have typified how an average Indian politician should look—men in white kurtas and women in simple handloom sarees. The iconic white cap that Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal wears in almost every rally has its political roots in colonial India. This hugely popular head accessory was introduced in mainstream politics by none other than Bapu himself during India’s struggle for independence. Since then, the “Gandhi cap” has become an integral part of an Indian politician’s attire. A fashion trend of big political significance was the Khadi Movement, which Mahatma Gandhi started to encourage Indians to boycott British-manufactured clothes and wear home-spun Khadi garments—another unique form of protest devised by the preacher of non-violence in the era of British brutes.

Due to its significant role in India’s freedom struggle, Khadi still stays strong in India’s political sphere. Another freedom fighter whose fashion sense has become quite the norm among politicians is the first PM of India Jawaharlal Nehru. The sleeveless, buttoned jacket Nehru sported throughout his political career, dubbed as “Nehru jacket”, is still prevalent and quite popular among the general public as well. The inaugural PM’s jacket is so quintessentially timeless that even the current PM has adopted the apparel, although with his own custom Modi-fications.
