NBCNEWS.COM - Michelle Obama wasted no time showing off her signature style on inauguration weekend, rolling out a series of polished outfits for events from the Kids' Inaugural Concert to the president's swearing-in ceremony on Monday.

The first lady stepped out in a sophisticated blue Thom Browne coat and J. Crew shoes for Inauguration Day, accessorizing with a Cathy Waterman necklace. Browne, an American designer better known for his menswear, designed the coat based on the style of a man's silk tie.

"This is not a designer that you would wander into your local mall and find," fashion critic Robin Givhan said on TODAY Monday. "He's hard to find; he's very unique."

According to the White House, at the end of the inaugural events, the outfit and accessories will be donated to the National Archives.

Her outfit was carefully coordinated with the first daughters, who dressed in similar hues. Malia Obama wore J.Crew, while Sasha donned a Kate Spade coat and dress.

For President Obama's first swearing-in on Sunday (he will be sworn in again on Monday in a public ceremony), the first lady wore a navy blue Reed Krakoff Dress in the Blue Room at the White House.

Later that night, she sparkled in a black sequined Michael Kors boat neck dress for an inaugural reception at the National Building Museum.

The first lady is known for mixing designer looks with low-key fashions, often alternating between high-end pieces and more casual clothes from J. Crew or H&M.

On Friday she opted for a more relaxed look at the Kids' Inaugural Concert for the children of military families, wearing a white Alexander McQueen shirt and black pants. The event was emceed by Nick Cannon and featured performances by Katy Perry and Usher.

All eyes have also been on Michelle Obama's most striking style choice this weekend: her bangs.

The president even addressed them at a reception to thank donors, saying, "I love her bangs. She looks good. She always looks good."
