Eileen Fisher twist front dress

Michelle Obama was photographed at Andrews Air Force base (to meet the families of those killed during last week’s Fort Hood tragedy) and, well, to be frank, she’s put together exactly how anyone ought to be when something terrible happens. While it’s nice when everything’s coming up roses, it can’t hurt to be prepared to look somber, dignified, and yes, a mite bit stylish, for more difficult times. A simple black, twist-front dress is a good place to start.

Of course, Michelle doesn’t stop there.  She rounds out the look in true First Lady style with a short strand of de rigueur pearls and pointy, low-heeled black pumps – we like this equivalent pair from Calvin Klein.
