Forget about who's wearing what on the runway. Today, it's all about who's wearing what behind the debate lectern.

The next Republican presidential debate takes place Wednesday night. While we've parsed over the candidate's platforms and statements, their looks are just as important.

A red color tie may convey one thing to voters than a striped blue one. A vibrantly colored pant suit may help you visually stand out among your black-suited challengers on stage.

Michelle Dalton Tyree, founder of Fashion Trends Daily, joins Take Two to assess the importance of campaign couture.
