The State of the Union Address took place Tuesday, Jan. 28. President Barack Obama sure had a lot to say. So did some of the fashion statements that took place that evening, according to the Washington Post.

First Lady Michelle Obama made a statement in dark green. The first lady wore a dark green silk dress with a wide leather belt.

The outfit consisted of a bolero jacket with elbow-length sleeves and a flouncy skirt. In previous years, the first lady wore sleeveless dresses. This dress simply stated that she was feeling cold that night.

She had every right to feel cold. The tension between the Democrats and the Republicans was rather chilly. Also, it was snowing outside in Washington D.C.

Jill Biden, Joe Biden's wife, wore a purple sheath with a matching pashmina. She had to accessorize her look with an arm cast and sling over her left arm.

There were also plenty of bright blazers in the office audience. Viewers probably took notice of the sea of colors at home. One would notice that there were plenty of reds and yellows.

President Obama kept it simple with a dark suit and blue tie for his State of the Union Address. Blue is the color of choice when it comes to Democrats. Maybe he wore the color to make a statement to the Republicans in the room.
