Among the Vice President’s many styles by Akris is a stylish jacket with pleating at the back waist; she often pairs the jacket with a skirt. Here you see Ms. Harris in the piece in November 2016 as she celebrates winning the race for one of California’s US Senate seats.
As the Vice Presidential nominee, then-Senator Harris wore the piece at a September 2020 memorial service for Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

The Vice President wore the jacket for when she took part (virtually) in the memorial service for civil rights leader Vernon Jordan in March 2021.
The current version of the design is the Pietro Jacket ($3590), a single-breasted style made of double-faced wool (99% wool/1 % polyamide). It has a concealed front snap closure, back darts for a tailored fit, and distinctive pleating at the back waist.
It also features slits at the sleeve cuffs and notched lapels.
