Leave it to our fashionable FLOTUS to drop some winter styling inspiration just as we started to dream about spring. MObama wore a bejeweled bridal sash from J.Crew around her Thom Browne coat, instantly personalizing her look for the outdoor portion of Monday's Inauguration festivities.
While, sadly, you will not be able to snag that exact J.Crew sash, we did find ten fancy belts to dress up your winter coat. Get a similarly bedazzled option at Club Monaco; toughen up the look with a silver-plated version by Nicholas; or go for slimming colorblock with a Miu Miu two-tone option. Click through the gallery above for all ten of our picks and give your coat a much-needed second wind this month.—Nicola Fumo
