Style How To: Remix Your Wardrobe With Michelle Obama Inspired Looks

Our Illustrious First Lady Mrs. Michelle Obama is known for her chic style sensability. In addition to being appreciated for her fashion, Mrs.O is also know for her well edited wardrobe repeats. Gone are the days of outfits, as tailored separates that can be worn again and again are a neccessity to personal style. And thanks to the First Lady, this working girl’s task has become a full on trend.

WHC

White House Casual is a nod to Mrs.O’s stroll’s across the lawn in an a-line dress, cardigan, and bright belt; and again de-boarding the private jet after a well deserved vacation, this time with an off colored flat and hobo shoulder bag.

M&G

Meet & Greet is inspired by the First Lady’s casual book readings and charitable activities in sleek, skinny trousers. Once with a striped tee, eye catching bracelt and peep toe flats and again in a bright top, cool cuff and a fun shoe.

CD

Camp David takes a que from the First Family’s trips to and from the White House. Easy and crisp goes the pleated skirt with a simple tank, belt and sunnies. An encore ensemble includes a colored cardigan, preppy belt and trusty ballerina flats.

Along with inspiration comes accessibility, as the First Lady rocks brands like J.Crew Collection, Old Navy and Banana Republic in addition to designers like Jason Wu and Tibi. While the everyday fashionista may not be able to afford all of Mrs.O’s favorite brands, we can certainly have fun remixing her signature style to suit our own.

Yours,
