The Vice President-elect had a busy Monday, returning to the Senate to vote ‘yes’ on the COVID-19 relief/omnibus spending bill that passed both houses last night.Embed from Getty Images
She then boarded a flight to Georgia, where she campaigned for US Senate candidates Reverend Raphael Warnock (c) and Jon Ossoff (r).
It was her first visit to Georgia since Democrats flipped the state in November.Embed from Getty Images
Now for what the Vice President-elect wore. She was in a monochrome Argent jacket atop a ribbed black turtleneck, black trousers, and Prada boots.Embed from Getty Images

Called the Plaid Belted Blazer ($388), the jacket is crafted of a poly/rayon/acrylic blend described as a “luxurious stretch fabric.” The piece is done in a classic Glen Plaid (also called Glen check) pattern that features princess seaming, peak lapels, two-button front closure, four buttons at the cuff, two flap pockets, and one welt pocket.
Here is a closer look at the fabric. On the left, one of the lapels, in the center, the removable belt (unused by the Vice President-elect), and on the right, a partial view of one of the pocket flaps.
I don’t have ID on the sweater or trousers but can say she wore a mask by Uniqlo when casting her vote in the senate. More specifically, the brand’s AIRism Mask ($14.90 per three-pack), constructed with the label’s AIRism material that wicks moisture away. The masks are *not* medical grade, but they are three layers. In some photos, it looks like the VPE wore the Uniqlo mask inside-out atop an N95 mask. Below, the AIRism masks.
The mask is quite popular with some in the fashion crowd; this Vogue piece has more.
The Vice President-elect also wore her Prada Ankle Boots yesterday.
Now for IDs on some suits worn by Ms. Harris. We begin with another style from Altuzarra, worn in October of 2019 for a CNN Town Hall focusing on LGBTQ issues.
It looks like then-Senator Harris wore Altazurra’s Fenice Jacket ($1495) and coordinating Serge Pant ($695) for the live event. Below you see Ms. Harris wearing the style at an April 2019 forum in Las Vegas.
The Fenice Jacket is a single-breasted style constructed of a triacetate/polyester blend. It features a slim silhouette with structured shoulders, notch lapels, two front flap pockets and one welt pocket, and double back vents.
The Serge Pant is a stalwart seen in most Altuzarra collections. It is the same style we believe the Vice President-elect wore for her official acceptance speech at the Democratic Convention in August.
It is made of the same fabric as the Fenice jacket and features a high rise, flared leg, a wide waistband with tab belt loops, front zipper, front and back pockets.
This is the third Altuzarra ensemble we know the VPE has worn, so we’re adding Altuzarra to the ‘Favorite Things‘ page.
Our next ID is for a suit I first wrote about back in September, worn for a South Florida campaign trip.Embed from Getty Images
The Vice President-elect was in pieces by Max Mara. On top, she wore the Italian brand’s ‘Daniel’ Jacket ($861, originally $2050), made in a midweight silk/mohair blend. The double-breasted blazer is fully lined and features shoulder pads, peak lapels, two front flap pockets, a breast pocket, and dual back vents. The official colorway for the jacket is called different names at different retailers, including “natural,” “powder,” and “blush.”

The trousers are the ‘Tartufo’ style ($262, originally $875) in the same mohair/silk blend; like the Daniel jacket, they are also lined in silk. The pants are a straight-leg design with a front zipper and hook/bar closure, slanted front pockets, and two back welt pockets. Everyone seems to agree on the color name for the trousers: sand.
Ms. Harris had her pants tailored, removing the decorative silk-chiffon layer dropping down from the trousers’ hem. Other than this change, I believe she wore the pieces as they were sold off the rack without additional changes.
If unfamiliar with Max Mara, the label is based in Italy, and shows its collections at Milan Fashion Week. It was founded in 1951 by Achille Maramotti; the brand is known for its coats, its tailoring, and high-quality fabrics and construction.
