Michelle Obama certainly brightened up a drab Veteran’s Day in Washington – she wore this eye-catching, J.Crew tweed coat today for a ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery. It’s no secret that the First Lady has a soft spot for the prepster brand – she’s made many an appearance in a J.Crew frock – but we like how she jazzes up the ensemble with a contrasting black belt and ultra-opaque tights under her rain boots. According to Mrs-O.org, this particular jacket hasn’t been around since January, but luckily, their new tweed “griffin” coat is just as cute.
For a slightly funkier, equally colorful look, try Boden’s plaid tweed jacket or some fun, tall rain boots (not necessarily together) from all-weather footwear brand, Hunter. Or just check out our guides to winter coat trends and rain gear.
