The first lady’s signature style is stylish and confident as she combines a selection of colourful items that help her stand out from the huge crowds waiting to meet her husband.
From brightly coloured day dresses to vibrant skirt and trouser suits and printed shift dresses, Michelle’s wardrobe she’s not afriad of colour or vibrant prints. However, at the same time she keeps the look classy by picking clothes that are classically tailored. Michelle shows that if you have the right clothes you can be bright without being brashy. Fabulous !
Her well-cut skirts fall to just above the knee and you’ll often see her wearing a cardigan so she doesn’t flash too much flesh on more conservative occasions. Her cover ups are extra cute as they’re belted at the waist, giving a more flattering feminine look.
Would you like to take inspiration from Michelle and get smarter without compromising on style? Here are our top there ways to get the look of the First Lady.
Start with a sophisticated dress, the Evans rose printed dress has a brilliantly bold yellow and black print and is fitted at the waist but it’s knee-length and not too low cut. The Obama style black cardigan is great for when you have to go from the outside to the inside and the black bow courts are comfortable enough to wear from day to night as well as being elegant and classy. The pearl on chain earrings add a touch of glamour and sparkle, final proof that you can be formal and stylish.
Recreate Michelle’s tailored appearance with trousers that flatter your figure like the black wide leg sateen trousers and then you’re free to express your personality with a vibrant top. Try the Praslin Tie Blouse Tunic, which is printed so the colour really stands out, style with block heeled sandals and the raspberry clutch bag to complete the look.
If you want something that’s as classy as it is colourful then you can’t beat the purple embellished tunic with black spanx leggings. It looks even better when worn with the two part heel sandals, sometimes it’s good to match! If you’re wearing this on a busy day you need a big bag to be prepared like the black barrel bag. Add some sparkle with the imitation agate drop ear-rings in a gorgeous shade of purple.
