Michelle Obama: FLOTUS’ 5 Fly Fashion Tips

flotusThere are so many things that we’re going to miss about the First Family, the Obamas, like their elegance, grace and style which was on display Tuesday night at the First Family’s last State Dinner.

“Today is bittersweet for Michelle and I because this marks the final official visit and state dinner of my presidency,” President Barack Obama said earlier in the day. “But it’s OK. We saved the best for last.”

Michelle Obama’s stunted once again at the final state dinner, looking absolutely radiant in a shimmering rose gold chainmail gown by Atelier Versace.

This dress and FLOTUS’ style whenever she steps out seems to be on point, which led us to dig deeper and find some consistent style tips that even your everyday fashionista can follow too. Take a look below:

Accentuate Your Assets
Instead of going for the latest style of skirt or top, do what works for you. Take a page out of Michelle Obama’s style book and highlight your best features instead of obsessing over the worst. The First Lady emphasizes her enviable, toned arms in sleeveless sheaths and draws attention to her narrow waistline with wide belts.

Discover “Your” Color
Give black (and navy…and charcoal, etc.) a break! Whether you look best in jewel tones or pastels, wearing color brightens your skin tone (and can have a similar affect on your mood). The First Lady doesn’t shy away from printed brights, either.



Show Off Your Silhouette
It doesn’t matter if you’re big or small, fitted sheaths (like this from Thakoon, far left) highlight the First Lady’s long, lean line, and full-skirted dresses like this Azzedine Alaia design (left) draw attention to her small waist. Find cuts that flatter your figure-and stick with them. Find the perfect styles for your shape
