The Obamas headed out in Washington D.C. this morning in both bold and bright coats.

Michelle Obama decided on a navy silk jacquard dress and coat custom-made by American menswear designer Thom Browne. The ensemble is inspired by the a men's silk tie. The outfit and accessories are headed to the National Archives, keeping with tradition.

The New York Times reporter Eric Wilson caught the designer by telephone.

"It's overwhelming. It is one of those rare moments in someone's career that you will always remember. ThereĀ¹s not a word that can really describe it. It's just amazing. She's such a strong woman. I wanted her to feel good in it and to feel comfortable, strong, feminine and beautiful," Browne said.

Styleite reports Flotus added a J.Crew belt and kitten heels.

The first daughters also went with bright colors. Malia picked a plum J. Crew coat, while Sasha chose Kate Spade's purple top coat and matching dress.
