Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is primarily known for her history-making position in the United States Congress and her headline-making tweets, but everyone was talking about her fashion during Tuesday night’s State of the Union Address.
Ocasio-Cortez joined the other Democratic women in attendance by wearing an all-white ensemble. She wrote in her Instagram story that the outfits were “for women’s rights,” as the colour white is often tied the women’s suffrage movement.
She opted for an eye-catching caped blazer that ended up stealing the show.
The design appears to be Zara’s $US89.90 Cape with Slits, which is still in-stock at the time of publication. A representative for Zara told INSIDER they are fairly certain she is wearing the brand’s design, though are not able to 100% confirm.
The caped design quickly became the talk of social media, meaning it might not be easy to get your hands on a similar Zara design for long.
Thankfully there are other options to choose from if you can’t get your hands on the Zara version, such as this slightly longer $US18 design from Boohoo.
Amazon also has a split-sleeve design by Verdusa, which begins at $US28.99.
Venus also sells an extremely similar option for $US40.
Representatives for Ocasio-Cortez did not immediately respond to INSIDER’s request for comment.
