During a meeting at the White House Wednesday, photos of Nancy Pelosi emerged that set the Internet on fire, thanks to a five-year-old burnt-orange coat, which—for reasons you'll see in a moment—will henceforth be referred to simply as The Coat.
The Coat was such a thing that director Barry Jenkins wrote a love letter to it via tweet. “And she knew exactly what she was doing wearing THIS coat on THIS day coming out of THAT room, placing THOSE shades on JUST so."
Elsewhere, Instagrams like @excellentcoatsonirritatedwomen gained thousands of followers overnight. Anthropomorphic Twitter accounts like Nancy Pelosi’s Red Coat and I Am Nancy Pelosi’s Coat were born.
The attention was so overwhelming, in fact, that MaxMara—the label behind The Coat—told us they’d be rereleasing it next year. But if waiting for The Coat isn't in your plans, here are nine styles to shop now that are highly similar, and will give you the same powerful vibe as Mrs. Pelosi strutting out of the White House.
