Your inclination may be to stay the heck out of the election controversy. After all, you run a fashion blog, not a political site. And your instincts may very well be correct. But some fashion (mine included) sites opted to tackle the issue in their own way—by focusing on women, the workplace, community and, yes, fashion.
Here are some great examples of how fashion-centric sites covered the election issue in a way that fit with the tone of their site and moved the issues forward. There's plenty of inspiration to be had for the next time a political story crops up that's important to your audience—and with the state of civic affairs at the moment, you know it won't be long. (P.S. Did you know Hillary Clinton was the first first lady to win a Grammy?)
I was particularly impressed with Leandra Medine's thoughtful commentary and even tone, especially considering she had to click “unpublish” on posts she had ready to go assuming Hillary Clinton's win.
This is possibly the least political fashion site that I can think of, but they managed to capture the mood of the moment without being overtly political.
This stylish site for moms published a street style roundup (disclosure: I'm in there) and asked each of the women their thoughts on the results of the election, as well as a news roundup.
The site has an entire section devoted to Election 2016 coverage with too many posts to list, featuring everything from what it all means to the female workforce to the fears of undocumented immigrants attending college.
