First Lady Fashion

Inaugural Outerwear?

Awhile ago, BeansTalk promised to choose a selection of coats we think would look pretty on almost-First Lady Michelle Obama. We know she likes color -- she's been known to favor J. Crew's colored jeans -- and she'd look great in a vibrant color. Given the average temperature in Washington D.C. (today, for example, it's 37-degrees, feels like 29-degrees), she's going to have to wear a coat. While she'll undoubtedly have a custom-designed outfit, we thought we'd pull some samples of coats we think would look lovely on her. We especially love this on, by Tevrow+Chase, but we also are fond of the Nanette Lepore and Nicole Miller. Favorites aside, she'd look great in any of these. What do you think??
