I’ve had a pale pink Steven Alan pantsuit sitting in my closet for a few years. I’ve never worn it, which normally means I’d return it. My apartment is so small that I try to adhere to one rule: If I don’t find a way to wear a new purchase within a week, back it goes. Seasons don’t matter — if I love a thing, I will wear it immediately.

But I’ve hung onto the pantsuit, apparently waiting for right now (well, Tuesday). If you don’t happen to have one hanging in the back of your closet, but still want to show your solidarity with HRC and/or cling to your lapels until this terrifying ride is over, it’s not too late. You’ve got a whole weekend to shop for an outfit that’ll make you feel like a boss long after you cast your vote — here are seven of the best.
