Inauguration 2013: The Obama Ladies Color-Coordinate (Again) in a Stylish Spectrum of Coats
After the lemon Isabella Toledo ensemble she wore on Inauguration Day in 2009, we could hardly wait to see what the First Lady wore this time around. And judging by Mrs. Obama’s inaugural outfits so far — and the stylish ensembles worn by first daughters Sasha and Malia — the Obama’s second term in the White House promises to be chic and color-coordinated.
While yellow may have won out at the 2009 inauguration, the color theme for this year’s inauguration appears to be a palette of purples and blues.
As practical as she is posh, Mrs. O used some smart styling tricks to jazz up her look before heading to the Capitol for President Obama’s swearing-in ceremony, cinching her coat with a jeweled J.Crew belt and swapping her pumps for black suede boots. Offering a chic contrast, Mrs. Obama’s berry leather gloves popped against her coat’s darker print.
inaugural-worthy gowns Mrs. Obama has worn over the past four years for an idea of what she might wear to this year’s fetes.
