Ok, so everyone’s a little obsessed with Michelle Obama’s clothes. But at least they’re interesting and good, and actually deserving of attention. Like this Tracy Feith number she wore yesterday to a post-inauguration prayer service. It’s a particularly timely choice, since Feith will design Target’s next capsule collection.
To pull off a similar look, pay attention to a few key details that make this dress work so well: the lively print, defined waist, and modest neckline.
We love the crazy, statement-making print on this satin dress ($1,135) – and that the simple cut keeps it wearable. We could see the First Lady in this more spring-y version ($25) come April. For a relaxed take, pair this floral silk dress ($158) with opaque footless tights and black patent flats.
As far as footwear, you can copy Michelle’s clean-lined look with any number of black patent pairs. These from Tommy Hilfiger ($75) are simple and classic, while this DV by Dolce Vita pair ($36.55) adds a tiny ¾” heel. Hollywould’s Hetty flats ($206.36) could even take you from day to night, thanks to the pointy toe and D’Orsay styling.
