It was pretty cold in Washington, D.C. on Monday, Jan. 21, when President Obama was sworn in for a second term. His family – wife Michelle and daughters Malia and Sasha – donned chic, colorful coats and accessories for the ceremony, which took place outside in the freezing air.

Their attire was about fashion and function — and there was no reason they couldn’t look slammin’ while staying warm.

Mrs. Obama, who is a style icon on the level of Jackie O. when it comes to First Ladies, opted for a dark blue, checked, fitted and flared coat custom-made by Thom Browne, which she paired with plum leather J. Crew gloves. Beyond chic.

The New York Times reported that the coat (and the similarly-shaped Thom Browne dress she wore underneath, which was paired with an Reed Krakoff cardigan) was made of silk jacquard necktie-style fabric. She looked polished, pulled together and classic, adding a little sex appeal with her J. Crew boots.

Overall, her coat was incredibly unique and totally “Michelle.”

First Daughter Malia wore a bright pink J. Crew coat with violet tights for bright pops of color, while her sister Sasha donned a bluish Kate Spade coat and bold, colored tights. They looked like mini-Michelles — and future style icons.

It was anything but basic black for the First Family when it came to their fashion choices.
