If you've done your civic duty and voted in D.C., Maryland, or Virginia today (or you're planning to hit the polls last minute), you've earned the right to celebrate the time-honored electoral process with some patriotic partying. And, since it's no use fretting about who will win and what will happen, the best thing to do right now is figure out what you'll wear to those parties.

Enter: the perfect getup for celebrating your candidate's triumph or drowning your sorrows. A cozy sweater will ward off the chill, while a sharp navy overcoat adds some polish. A walkable wedge boot is ideal for trekking from the polls to your viewing party, and, lest anyone think you're too conservative, some fun patterned pants will liven up the mix.
