The inauguration of President Joe Biden on January 20, 2021, saw a lot of incredible fashion. And if you’re anything like me, you desperately wish you had a healthy chunk of change in your bank account to splurge on one or two of the jackets that stole the show at the Capitol that Wednesday afternoon.
However, while I sadly do not have the money to splurge on the many amazing designer coats or pair of pants we saw at the inauguration, I decided to take to Amazon to see if I could find anything close to what Vice President Kamala Harris, Dr. Jill Biden, Jennifer Lopez, and others wearing at an affordable price.
And well, lucky for us, I think I found a few pieces online that can make you feel like the first female Vice President of the United State on Inauguration Day despite being on a budget. So, if you’re interested in seeing what we found, keep on scrolling.
Vice President Kamala Harris:
Madame VP Harris wore this stunning long purple peacoat with a matching dress and tights as she was sworn in on January 20 as America’s first female VP. And she looked amazing in it! What an incredibly historic inauguration we all got to witness. But while this specific color is difficult to match, here is what we found:

Dr. Jill Biden:
The newest First Lady of the United States, Dr. Jill Biden stunned in this T-length turquoise coat that came complete with faux fur around the collar, sleeves, and pockets, as well as a matching mask. And while the color she wore on Inauguration Day was again difficult to find, we were able to discover a coat that very closely mimics the one Mrs. Biden wore, just in a different color.

We have to say it, we are loving these monochromatic looks, are we not. The former First Lady absolutely killed it in these plum bell-bottom slacks and matching floor-length coat. I mean, this color is just perfect. And surprisingly, we were able to find a coat and pants that will leave you feeling like Michelle herself gave you her swagger!

If I’m being honest with you, while Amanda Gorman recited her captivating poem at the inauguration, I don’t think I blinked once. From her piercing words to her unbelievable outfit, everything about Gorman was perfect. And just when you thought yellow was an impossible color to pull off, the poet steals the show. Get her look below!

Not only did Jenny from the Block sound good while singing This Land Is Your Land and American the Beautiful, but she also looked good while doing it too! Again, Jennifer Lopez pulled off a stunning monochromatic look while wearing an incredible white floor-length coat with matching slack and a ruffled top. If you want to look like JLo, (and who wouldn’t) shop the links below!

Ella Emhoff is Madam Vice President’s stepdaughter and daughter of America’s first Second Gentleman Doug Emhoff. Ella stole the show in this beautiful collared checked coat by Miu Miu. And while Miu Miu is a pretty unique look, this one was difficult to match, but we did our best! Take a look:

And let’s not forget the true king of the inauguration, no not President Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders. As you may have already seen by now, Sanders turned into a meme when cameras caught him trying to stay warm in his seat at the inauguration. But people also took not of his handmade gloves! And while these gloves, in particular, were a gift to Sanders, we found mittens on Amazon that look similar to the ones the Senator was rocking on January 20!

Well, there you have it! You are now one step closer to feeling and looking like a boss. Allow these articles of clothing to help you feel empowered to go out there and get what you want. Sure, VP Harris may have shattered the glass ceiling Wednesday afternoon at the inauguration, but she would be the first to say there is so much more glass to crack.
So let’s get busy! But first… shopping!
