An Ode to Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s Supreme Style

Bold Accessories and Statement "Collars" Pay Homage to RBG's Sartorial Legacy

BY // 11.11.20

We’ll be taking notes from the Ruth Bader Ginsburg playbook for years. Just the second woman appointed to the Supreme Court of the United States, the notorious RBG set an impressive precedent when fighting for women’s rights and gender equality, but her lasting mark on the culture’s subconscious extends to the sartorial world as well.

Known predominately for her lacy collars (aka “dissent” or “majority opinion” collars), Ginsburg’s notable accessorizing went beyond neckwear. There were clip on earrings, delicate gloves (which she came to favor after undergoing chemotherapy), and even jabots — considered touches that made a traditional black robe somehow feel glamorous.

“People ask me … when will there be enough women on the court? And my answer is: when there are nine.”
– Ruth Bader Ginsburg
