She’s pragmatic. She’s tough and smart. She’s a driving force behind an important man. Yet, I do not see many primary hued pantsuits on this woman. Instead, Michelle Obama chooses to wear silky fabrics in rich feminine colors.
The jewel tones and soft chiffon layering soften her approach. Politically, this is a chic strategy, not to mention getting to dress up and be pretty with her two girls.
After Obama’s speech at the DNC on Thursday evening, the whole gang got up there and the color palette was bubblegum, cherry, fuchsia and B&W….. WOW!
Good-bye red, white, blue stripes and stars…welcome turquoise, amethyst and ruby flower brooches.
One of her designers of choice is Maria Pinto featured below (middle).
Her suits and dress designs are elegant, minimalist and architectural. Does she use an organic hemp/tussah silk blend? No, but all the fabrics are made in Italy at least. We can look pretty and be smart at the same time. Go girl!
