It is frrrrreezing here on the East Coast, which means that the outdoor portion of today’s Presidential Inauguration ceremony necessitated not only an array of amazing coats from Sasha, Malia, and Michelle Obama, but also some serious winter accessorizing.
But rather than opt for basic black like dad, the Obama ladies chose gloves in a similar palette of blues and purples to their outerwear. Sasha, who may top Queen Elizabeth herself as our new Queen of monochrome, wore a knit scarf and gloves in the exact same shade of purple as her bright Kate Spade coat.
Meanwhile, Michelle and Malia chose leather gloves that coordinated beautifully with one another’s outfits. The First Lady’s eggplant leather pair matched her daughter’s cozy snood and J. Crew topper to a T, while Malia’s royal blue set paired perfectly with her mom’s Thom Browne ensemble.

this is some kind of spaceship or something.
