The First Lady of Style
If you really want Michelle Obama’s exact look, her yellow dress and jacket, designed by Isabel Toledo, will beon sale at Barneys in March for $1,500—or you can snap up this Barneys New York Sundress (1) ($750) right away.
Or for a little less, go for yellow for daytime with this Diane von Furstenberg Justin Wrap DressShumaq Fiona Dress (2) in yellow ($308). Take the conservative route with a Tahari Yellow Skirtsuit (3) ($538) or wow them at night with the Chetta B Cage Bodice Dance Dress ($400).
Michelle Obama picked up on an underutilized material when she sported this Narciso Rodriguez suit around town. Camel hair is a classic, but it’s more interesting when the cut is modern. This Laila Azhar Pleated Cape Coat (1) in camel ($350) puts a practical spin on this fall’s cape trend.
If you’re lucky enough to live someplace warm enough for lightweight clothes at time of year, Juicy Couture’s Double-breasted Jacket ($360) is the way to go. And, of course we know the first lady likes J.Crew, so put together a black-and-camel ensemble with J.Crew’s Super 120s High Pencil Skirt (2) ($118) in black and their Wool Cashmere “Dana” Coat (3) ($229 on sale) in camel.
