Hello, and Happy New Year wishes to everyone! I decided to put all of the outfits from the latter part of December into one post, as Vice President Harris did not have loads of public engagements during that time period.
We begin with Monday, December 13, when the Vice President visited an electric vehicle charging facility in Prince George’s County, Maryland.
She delivered remarks on the administration’s “Electric Vehicle Charging Action Plan.”
More from this Utility Dive story:
The White House on Monday unveiled an “EV Charging Action Plan” that sketches out how federal agencies will coordinate on the development of a national network of 500,000 electric vehicle chargers.
The action plan establishes a Joint Office of Energy and Transportation, coordinated by the Department of Energy and the Department of Transportation, aiming to provide stakeholders with a coordinated approach and single point of contact for charging resources.
Also on the 13th, Vice President Harris met with private sector CEOs. The Washington Post reports they discussed “new investment commitments… to help address the root causes of migration from Central America, aiding her efforts on a daunting task on which she has been longing to show progress.”
Vice President Harris wore a still-unidentified single-breasted grey suit with peaked lapels, three flap pockets, and two front buttons. Beneath the jacket, a finely ribbed maroon knit top that also remains unidentified.
Tuesday, the 14th, the Vice President and Treasury Secretary Yellen spoke at the annual Freedman’s Bank Forum.
More from The Grio’s story:
Vice President Kamala Harris and Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen headlined the annual Freedman’s Bank Forum on Tuesday, announcing $8.7 billion in federal funding for financial institutions serving minority and underserved small business owners.
“In America today, deep racial disparities continue to hold people back from achieving all they can,” Vice President Harris said in her remarks at the forum held at the Treasury Department.
The Vice President wore her black Dolce and Gabbana suit with what appeared to be a new Michael Kors Collection piece, the label’s Pleated Silk-Blend Blouse ($595).
Ms. Harris owns the blouse in black, easily identified by the distinctive pleating at the neckline. It is also offered in navy and white, but not the cream color worn by the Vice President. The blouse worn by the Vice president may be a color from a future collection or a bespoke piece.

Also on Thursday, Ms. Harris performed a ceremonial swearing-in of Brian Nelson, the new undersecretary for Terrorism and Financial Crimes at the Treasury Department. You see Mr. Nelson with his wife, Land Dilg, and son Drew in these photos.
The Vice President wore her navy separates by Altuzarra, the Kenton Jacket (no longer available), and Serge Pant ($795). I wasn’t able to discern what top she was wearing.
Vice President Harris and Second Gentleman Doug Emhoff spent the Christmas holiday in California. On Christmas Eve, they visited a Los Angeles fire station.
The duo delivered donuts to those working at Station 94 in Crenshaw. More from MyNewsLA:
“In this Christmas season, this holiday season, I just want you to know that … you are so special and we really do appreciate you and we thank you. And you’re prepared to make sacrifices for people you may have never met. People whose names you don’t even know,” Harris said. “And to be a California firefighter — and a firefighter in Los Angeles — that’s some tough work.
Emhoff noted that his brother is a firefighter and said he knows what families of firefighters go through.
The couple posed for a group photo.
The Vice President was in a blazer and the maroon UFO (Unidentified Fashion Object) ribbed top with a pair of cropped jeans and unidentified black loafers.
On Christmas Day, the Vice President and Second Gentleman spoke with sailors aboard the USS Harry S. Truman during a video conference call.
Below, the view from the sailors’ perspective.
The Vice President was in a checked blazer I don’t remember seeing before and a dark top.
