On Wednesday, as Joe Biden was sworn in as the 46th president of the United States at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C..
Even thought it is a national event, we at IzzSo take a closure look at all the best fashion looks at the historical 2021 presidential inauguration.
President Joe Biden wears a navy Ralph Lauren suit and topcoat. A fitting pair as the Design House is synonymous with American Fashion.
Dr. Jill Biden wears a custom, ocean blue Markarian coat, dress, and matching silk face mask. The tweed coat, has dark blue velvet collar and cuffs and is worn over a tapered dress with a chiffon bodice and scalloped skirt. The neckline of the dress is hand embellished with Swarovski pearls and crystals in a delicate floral pattern. The same Swarovski crystals adorn the coat and dress, subtly reflecting the light.
The color blue was chosen for the pieces to signify trust, confidence, and stability. The look was carefully crafted by a small team in the heart of New York City’s Garment Center and hand finished by O’Neill in her West Village studio.
The Vice President wears designs from two black designers, Christopher John Rodgers and and Sergio Hudson. She stuns in an ankle length purple coat. Harris’ choice to wear this shade along with Obama and Clinton may have been a calculated choice, nodding to the literal mix of the political party colors, red and blue.
Former First Lady Michelle Obama wears a monochromatic look by Black designer, Sergio Hudson. Her ensemble includes a magenta jacket with matching sweater, and wide leg trousers.
Bernie does it again. Showing up in a fashion statement of his own, he goes for a more casual approach to the ceremony combining a camel puffer coat with a pair of oversized patterned mitts and a medical mask. Best dressed? You decide.
House Speaker, Nancy Pelosi combines a bright blue coat and scarf with navy leathered gloves and a patterned mask.
Hillary Clinton wears a Ralph Lauren purple pantsuit complete with a blazer, trousers, and ruffled scarf and a plum overcoat. Clinton’s color choice is synonymous with other political figures at the event. The shade notoriously known as a symbol of hope and unity is the unexpected trend we all appreciate.
