Outerwear, Monochrome Trend at the Inauguration – WWD

GetResponse Pro

Wednesday’s inauguration brought forth a variety of exciting fashion trends, with monochrome dressing at the forefront. Purple, a prominent hue of the day worn by Vice President Kamala Harris, and former first ladies Michelle Obama and Hillary Clinton, represents unity, a blend of red and blue, while jewel tones added a royal nod. 

Outfits worn throughout the day by President Joe Biden’s granddaughters Naomi, Natalie, Finnegan and Maisy, as well as Dr. Jill Biden and poet laureate Amanda Gorman, varied from pink, green and yellow, as well as classic camel, navy and white. Much like Wednesday’s fashions, the spring 2021 runways displayed monochromatic dressing as a prominent trend. Ella Emhoff, stepdaughter of Vice President Kamala Harris and breakout style star of the inauguration, joined in on the jewel-toned theme in a Batsheva frock while making her own statement in a Miu Miu plaid topcoat.

Here, WWD rounds up the best monochromatic looks from the spring 2021 runways that represent yesterday’s fashion-filled looks.

Vice President Harris’ purple ensemble, designed by Christopher John Rogers, was the sartorial embodiment of unity, a message that was oft-mentioned throughout the day. Former First Lady Michelle Obama and Hillary Clinton, too, wore shades of the prominent color, which were also seen on the spring 2021 runway at Roksanda, Tod’s and Prada.
