Luckily, Michelle Obama has taken the basic dress to a new level. And with the weather getting warmer, it's time to start getting dresses for Spring. Before she was First Lady, Michelle Obama was a high-powered VP making over $200,000 a year, had 2 young daughters, and balanced a household while Barack was campaigning for Senate. Now with a schedule like this, who has time to think about what to wear? That’s why Michelle’s style is effortless, simple, elegant, and oh so fab! She probably doesn't have a lot of time to put outfits together, so she creates instantly great looks with dresses and statement accessories. I think we can all take a lesson from Michelle and invest in a few "go-to" dresses for our closets.
Arden B.; $78
The belt and floral print are so Michelle
Forever 21, $22.80
Michelle always looks great in purple and the bubble hem gives the dress a youthful feel
J. Crew; $69.99
I always J Crew was over priced and for white suburban moms, but Michelle has made J Crew the place to shop. They offer bright colors and flattering cuts, and their sales are great!
Delia's, Purple "Lavia dress; $19.99
Definitely wear this with some pearls and belted with a black or brown belt
