But let's get superficial here, after all this is a lifestyle and shopping blog. The Inauguration must be one difficult occasion to dress for: First of all, January in Washington, D.C. is usually cold and windy. Our 9th US President William Henry Harrison caught a cold at his inauguration and died one month later; so don't layer for warmth at your own peril! And yet, bulk up like an Eskimo and people criticize your lack of polish and style!👀

So secondly, the 1st impression the country has of the new President and First Lady matters. Everybody and her mother and cousins have an opinion, especially foes! A bad first impression is hard to walk back.
Thirdly, it's best on this day of great patriotism to wear American designers to support the fashion industry; and finally let's not pretend otherwise, a man's suit is not what catches our eye. A well-made fitted suit for a man literally fits the bill. Check, blink, and next!

It's the attire of the women we notice and remember. Yesterday all the Former First Ladies, as well as, members of government branches looked appropriate, i.e., clean, put together and in their Sunday best!👗
IMHO the following attendees excelled: First Lady Dr. Jill Biden, Madame Vice President Kamala Harris, and former First Lady Michelle Obama. Their bright colors, warmth and practicality, as well as, the flow of the outfits as they walked and stood during the ceremony were sensational!
