Chinese New Year just passed and since it's the year…
Welcome The First Lady of fashion, Michelle Obama. Move aside pant suits and drab cookie-cutter ensembles, we can all learn a little something from the last four stylish years of sophistication and fun fashion that hit the white house. Regardless of your political views, no one can deny the impeccable taste of our current First Lady. Since Michelle has taken on the role as First Lady, her fashion choices have been closely scrutinized. Michelle has been more open and unique with her clothing selections, indulging fun prints, bold colors and form-fitting dresses, extremely different from the monotonous fashion of First Ladies of years past. Remeber when she posed in a sleeveless dress and everyone was shocked – so nuts! What we admire about Michelle’s style is that she knows how to add a fashion-forward twist to the usual boring business attire, giving everyone hope that fashion doesn’t die at the work place. Whether it’s a presidential debate or a day with the kids, Michelle looks effortless in her apparel. Here are four style lessons we can take from our fabulous First Lady.
1. Play with Prints. Dresses are encouraged and fun prints and colors are welcomed, as long as the length is appropriate.
2. Embrace clean-cut lines. This gives you a sophisticated, eloquent look. It is a simple way to look put together and at your best at all times.
3. Dare to wear leather pants. They’re not just for the club, but they sure are fun. If they’re not too edgy for the First Lady, then add a blazer and try it out for casual Friday.
4. Pop that color. Mrs.O has been spotted many times with colorful shoes. Take a cue from her bright style and add some color with a bright pair of pumps. P.S. The dress above is H&M. Mrs.O knows that cheap can be chic!
