As they did for Michelle Obama, WWD asked a group of designers what Barack Obama should wear on Inauguration Day. This proves to be less fun than the Michelle piece, because (a) we already know what Barack is planning to wear (a Hart Schaffner Marx tuxedo) and (b) the results are mostly gray, navy or black suits. A few of our favorites are galleried above.
