All the details of Michelle Obama's outfit trifecta
Michelle's chic styles for the inauguration.
She was glowing last night on stage at the celebration reception for President Barack Obama’s second term inauguration in a Michael Kors black sequined cocktail dress. And, as usual, the First Lady shows that recycling dresses is a hot trend — this isn’t the first time that she has been seen in this sparkly number —she actually wore this same dress back in 2009 for an official dinner. But this time around, she added a fab new accessory to the look — a chic new bob with stylish bangs.
During the day for the inauguration ceremony at the White House, Michelle tried out another flawless outfit — a dark blue silk dress by Reed Krakoff with a matching cardigan, reports the Daily Mail.

And today during Inauguration Day, Michelle’s outfit is “an all-American, high-low, coat-and-dress mix,” reports USA Today, consisting of “a navy Thom Browne coat and dress in a reflective fabric and a pattern based on the style of a men's silk tie. Under the coat, she wore a royal blue bolero-style cardigan by Reed Krakoff, over the Browne dress, which appeared to be pale blue or grey, with an A-line, panel-pleat skirt.”

You already know wearing white after Labor Day is cool. But menswear is reinventing itself rapidly, leaving some long-held mandates by the wayside, not to mention a bunch of men with a lot of questions. Sure, some style laws are truly inviolable. Showing a quarter-inch of cuff will always be crucial, but with designers and dandies flaunting so many former taboos it's hard to tell what's in play these days. So we thought we'd take this opportunity to let you know which rules no longer apply.
Put down the wrinkled button-down, step away from the Crocs, and open your closet. We need to talk about the new rules of casual.
