As the Obamas get ready to vacate the White House, one thing I am definitely going to miss about them is Michelle Obama’s amazing sense of style. That woman knows how to make anything look FAB! I am yet to see her photographed wearing a piece that doesn’t look great on her. She is the definition of Elegant Style and she knows it!
Michelle Obama’s legacy of style can never be forgotten so Mrs Trump better bring her style game with her. Mrs Obama inspired generations of women like me every time she stepped out. Her support of American fashion and the up-and-coming American designers was like a breath of fresh air. She supported the likes of Jason Wu, Narciso Rodriguez, Tracy Reese, Rachel Roy, and Thakoon over the larger fashion houses like Carolina Herrera, Alexander Wang, or Ralph Lauren.
I must confess I didn’t take to her fashion sense at first. I found it a little too boring but the more I paid attention to her style, the more I got it. She is definitely a fashion lover and she knows her stuff. I love the fact she looks effortlessly chic and comfortable in whatever she wears. She is Style Goals right here.
Michelle Obama also connected fashion to the broader popular culture –
“Fashion is really about passion and creativity, just like music or dance or poetry,” Obama said during her welcome to students. “For so many people across the country, it is a calling; it is a career. It’s the way they feed their families.”
The fashion industry will never forget Michelle Obama. She was and still is a fashion force to reckon with, and she knows it. I hope she continues to look as stylish and as fly as ever.
