Tuesday’s presidential election may have split the country down the middle, but thankfully there’s one thing upon which both red and blue states can agree: the Obama girls have got some serious style.
From Michelle’s captivating magenta Michael Kors dress on Election Night to Malia’s hip bomber jacket at O’Hare the next morning, there are some great looks being turned out by all the President’s women.
Michelle is known to love bold patterns, but as a busy working mother her choices are always practical and chic. And she keeps in line with the latest trends, like when she showed off her penchant for sparkle on Tuesday night. And her daughters seem to have inherited her great taste.
On Wednesday morning the Obama family showed off its jet-setting style while boarding Air Force One. Michelle sported luxuriously long leather gloves while Malia wore a trendy bomber-style jacket, polka-dot shirt and ankle boots. Sasha looked sweet in a fashion-forward pair of colored denim jeans and a graphic tee.
Here’s how Milwaukee fashionistas can replicate the Obama look.
