Michelle Obama has brought style back into the White House. We haven’t seen a political fashionable movement like this since Jackie O. With the entire world looking at her, it’s almost her duty to bring it everywhere she goes. Her style is bold, sophisticated, and full of attainable glamour. No boring power suits for this First Lady!
Michelle Obama is a big supporter of up-and-coming designers and appreciates a little cheap-chic action as well. Here’s a fun fact: Michelle reportedly paid for all of her inaugural looks out of her own pocket. Talk about a boss. The first lady’s style advisor is Ikram Goldman, owner of Ikram boutique in Chicago – best boutique in Chicago is you ask me.
When you’re out shopping for your Michelle Obama inspired wardrobe, stock up on all of the First Lady’s favorite brands/designers including; Tracy Reese, Thakoon, Rachel Roy, Narciso Rodriguez, Alaia, Jason Wu, Naeem Kahn, and J. Crew. Look for sophisticated and elegant pieces in bold colors (prints aren’t a bad idea either). Dresses are always a win especially shift dresses, A-line, and empire waist silhouettes.
A few more Michelle Obama finishing touches include fitted cardigans, belts (a cinched in waist is her specialty), pearls, and brooches.
In case you didn’t get enough, here are some more stand out looks from FLOTUS. Do you have a favorite Michelle Obama look? Leave it in the comments and if you have an icon you’d like me to feature, drop that name in the comments section too.
