History will be made today, as the first female to be elected into the White House will be inaugurated as Vice President. We’re popping into your inboxes a day early this week in honor of this momentous occasion. As stylists, it’s part of our job to predict the fashion at major events such as these, as well as pay close attention to the fashion during said event. We did our homework, and the conversation revolving the Inauguration and what to expect in the wardrobe department is quite interesting, yet not surprising.
“This time around representatives for Jill Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris have made it clear they are not interested in conveying a fashion message, according to a few designers and executives, who were asked to submit sketches and designs for both women.”- WWD
Based on each of their styles and what we’ve seen from them in the past, we are forecasting Inauguration Day looks for President-Elect Joe Biden, First Lady-Elect Dr. Jill Biden, and Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris.

Dr. Jill Biden is no newbie to sartorial dressing. After 8 years of supporting her husband in his role as Vice President, she understands the power and practicality of what it means to dress accordingly on a monumental day like this. One of the things we have noticed about First Lady- Elect is her love for a good dress and her willingness to play with color. From bold blues to floral prints, but she does it all with staying true to her classic style.
Knowing that Dr. Biden has participated in inaugural events before and what she wore during the campaigning, we believe that she will reach for a statement dress accompanied by a stunning coat. Fully invested into the message of unity and hope that President-Elect and Vice-President Elect are championing, Dr. Biden’s look will communicate her support of exactly that.
We love the idea of this stunning dress by Akris Punto that is the most lovely deep red allowing, her to show American spirit, without being too loud in the line up. The fabrication is also a key to note because it is wool making the choice even more practical for the outdoor event. We’re completing the look with a white topcoat that will beautifully compliment this belt dress. And to finish, much like the last Inauguration , we think she will reach for tall boots, complimentary leather gloves and her preferred earring choice, a pearl.
