First Lady Style

It's always wonderful to see history unfold in front of our eyes, especially when it's the second inauguration for the first black president of the United States of America. Millions of viewers tuned in to watch President Barack Obama's inauguration. And regardless of political preferences, there was no doubt that fashion enthusiasts would have plenty to say about First Lady Michelle Obama's outfit choice.

Her swearing-in ensemble was a beautiful one designed by Reed Krakoff. The blue dress was a variation of what we've seen on the First Lady before. An A-line dressed paired with a bolero or cardigan is not a new concept for Mrs. Obama's wardrobe.

However, what I found to be stunning was her outerwear designed by Thom Browne. The coat-and-dress pairing in the navy, jacquard print was inspired by a men's necktie, which should be no surprise given Browne's background in menswear. Plus, it complimented the president's necktie of choice, which was blue (at the last inauguration, he wore red).

The pop of color with the J. Crew gloves was a beautiful way to top off the ensemble. And did I mention my love for the bangs! Her look was fresh and modern take on a very classic silhouette, which is totally befitting for the occasion. 

What did you think of the First Lady's ensemble?
