Feeling a bit frazzled after all the American political commotion? So are we. We’ll just leave this here…

FASHION FOR FOR THE OCCASION:

Has fear of what’s coming got you in a chokehold? Wear the wisdom with Karen Walker’s Leska sweatshirt ($250) and runaway as fast as you can. Not keen on Trump? Then this t-shirt from WORLD ($75) may just become your personal slogan. If the continual sight of stars and stripes got you feeling inspired, wear them on your sleeve with Trelise Cooper’s Ride With Me jacket ($499).

FOOD TO WASH DOWN YOUR NEWFOUND SENSE OF AMERICAN PATRIOTISM:

Because emotional eating is definitely on the cards. Head to Better Burger for an All-American style cheeseburger, Miann Britomart for a doughnut or Orleans for the best milkshake in town.

SOMETHING TO HELP YOU RECOUP AND RECOVER:

If the stress just got a little bit too much, dab a bit of L’Occitane’s Aromachologie relaxing essential oil blend ($42) on your temples and flick through Monocle’s How to Build a Nation Guide ($120 available at Fabric) for a few pointers. In need of a new do? Perhaps Dry & Tea will add The Washington D.C. to its blow wave menu in Trump’s signature style.
