When it comes to inspirational female candidates, few have a story as moving as Amy Wasyluka. Cancer survivor, lawyer, and mother, her life story reads like a motivational letter to women everywhere.

At 17, Amy Wasyluka was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. She survived, went on to study political science at Auburn, and then graduated from the University of Alabama law school (who she roots for when her two alma maters play football we can only guess).

She is currently the Democratic candidate for State Senate District 2, in the far north of her home state and including the town of Madison.

Although she is running as a Democrat, it’s clear that party labels are not her priority. “People over Party” is her campaign slogan, in fact.

“As a cancer survivor, an attorney and a mother, I know the value of determination, hard work, transparency and a commitment to succeed,” she says on her website.

Inspiring as her life story and political campaign are, we are also inspired by Amy’s fashion sense. Here are our favourite style moments from her campaign thus far.

Sizzling style

No event is too informal for looking your best, especially on the campaign trail. Wasyluka attended a “bi-partisan community cookout” in Limestone County and, as expected, she didn’t disappoint in the style department. What’s not to love about her chic ensemble? The combination of sleek grey plus black and white print is fit for anything from a formal office meeting to a relaxed barbecue. She spent the day sharing details of her campaign with her electorate clad in a high-waisted pencil skirt paired with a soft V-necked blouse adorned with swirling floral motif. “Cookout chic,” if ever we’ve seen it!

“Cancer is a disease which not only impacts those going through it, but also their friends and family,” says Wasyluka. She should know, having survived Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, a form of blood cancer that affects the lymphatic system in the body. Here we see her at the Live Bald event hosted by the St. Baldrick’s Foundation for Childhood Cancer Research. Diagnosed at the age of 17, Wasyluka addressed the crowd as a guest speaker and her style choice was predictably on point. She chose a body-skimming shift dress in a shade of dusty pale pink. Inspiring and elegant… it’s all in a day’s work naturally.

Her work as a family lawyer has given Wasyluka firsthand experience in tackling issues that affect her neighbors directly. Wasyluka poses alongside one supportive member of her community who held a special fundraising event in her honor. For the prestigious occasion, it was all about radiant red roses for Wasyluka in a stunning shift dress made up of large crimson blooms on a bed of jet black. Striking and sophisticated – just like the woman herself.

Poised in pride

Among her many campaign issues, Wasyluka advocates increased funding for public schools as well as the growth of small business within Senate District 2. Another one of her passions? Support for Alabama’s LGBT community. Here we see her celebrating both Pride and Juneteenth in Huntsville. As always, her outfit was prim and pretty perfect. Her bright red A-line dress met the mood and jovial nature of the day flawlessly.

As the daughter of two teachers, Amy Wasyluka knows the difference that educators can make in a child’s life and to society as a whole. We see her here at her stylish best addressing a room full of teachers in a beautifully patterned knee-length dress. The fit-and-flare silhouette is perfectly suited to the formal event and, paired with nude-colored stiletto heels, is simply smashing!
