Keep Up With The Obama Girls With These Colorful Coats

By  January 23, 2013

Although the world’s attention was on the President as he swore into his second term of office, we couldn’t help but notice the style successes of the women in Barack’s life, from Michelle who glowed in Thom Browne, to his daughters whose fashion lit up the stage as well. Sasha and Malia Obama bundled up warm in a couple of colorful coats at the Inauguration ceremonies January 21st. Older sister Malia, 14, chose a magenta style from J.Crew and 11 year old Sasha looked pretty in purple in a Kate Spade one. Heavy, button up pea coat styled coats in standout hues, like the ones the Obama girls chose, are the perfect pieces of outerwear to don over any outfit. With tights and a pair of pumps poking out from under the hem, the coat is instantly dressed up, but thrown over a pair of jeans, boots and a sweater, you’ll be staying warm and looking bright in your weekend wear as well. What color suits you best?
