Look Like a First Lady: Michelle Obama Style!

With a new presidency comes a new look and I'm not just talking politics here... Now I love myself a good pantsuit, but if I have to see one more badly dressed woman walk through the doors of the White House I am going to add a proposition to the next election ballot: First ladies much have stylists.

Truthfully, it is well-known that Michelle Obama does not have a stylist (although I am certainly up for the task!) It is true, she does falter here and there, but overall her taste is that of a future first lady. She exemplifies chic sophistication with an overall ore of accessibility that we haven't seen, well, ever. There will be no $150,000 shopping sprees at Neimans on this side of political town.

To acheive this look is quite simple. Political chic always starts with the right jewelry. A short strand necklace portrays class, elegance and appropriate aristocracy. You are of the people, but just happen to look better than them:) By Michelle using this turquoise color for her accent piece she acheives an extra stylish look instead of stuffy.

The blazer is a flattering style that cinches at her waist accentuating one of the smallest parts of her body. Can we say "boxy blazer" bad, cinched and fitted blazer good. It also has a trendy safari-like feel yet stays under the "blazer" heading which constitutes a more professional feel. Thank you to our new first lady for not only bringing class and elegance to the White House, but a kick ass new style that I am sure will only get better (just like her husband's presidency) over these next four years.... YES WE CAN (bring style back).
