With another historic moment under her stunning belt, Mrs. Obama continues to inspire us to incorporate fashion and comfort into our everyday work wear. Her ensembles repeatedly convey the importance of building a reliable wardrobe, one that consists of staples and silhouettes (like her A-line dress) that you know work best for you. Focus on playing with textures and prints to add an element of surprise and capture interest. We look forward to taking style notes from the First Lady for the next four years.
Mrs. Obama wears a Thom Browne coat, J.Crew gloves and belt, and Reed Krakoff boots.
