A somber Hillary Clinton made her concession speech, telling supporters and campaign staff members in New York City that she was proud of their effort and pledged to work with President-elect Donald Trump.

NEW YORK — During Hillary Clinton’s concession speech Wednesday afternoon, she wore a dark gray suit with bright purple lapels and Bill Clinton wore a suit with a purple tie.

Purple, white and gold are the colors of the National Woman’s Party, according to AOL. The colors symbolize “loyalty, constancy to purpose, unswerving steadfastness to a cause.”

With disappointment, Clinton stood in front of a large crowd of supporters, urging American citizens to have an open mind to what President-elect Donald Trump plans to do moving forward, also reminding women to stay empowered.

“And to all of the little girls who are watching this, never doubt that you are valuable and powerful and deserving of every chance and opportunity in the world to pursue and achieve your own dreams,” she said.

The Clinton campaign did not release an official statement regarding the purple suit.
