How to steal the first lady’s style.

Michelle Obama look for less

At a recent musical event at the White House featuring Harry Connick Jr., Michelle Obama played the radiant host in a perfectly balanced ensemble that exudes confidence and sophistication. Here’s how to get her look – for less!

Forever21 Sweater 1. Cardigan
Michelle wraps up in a cropped cardi like those made famous by White and Warren. These cashmere cover-ups will run you about $220, but we found a similar style at Forever 21 for just $15.92!

 

 

 

J Crew Skirt2. Dress
Our first lady had this perfectly proportioned dress custom made by Jason Wu, whose ready-to-wear styles typically cost around $1,500. The printed top and black pencil skirt perfectly balance out her pear shape. But even if you don’t have a famous designer at your beck and call, you can still pull off this look. J. Crew’s black pencil skirt is pleated in front and back, for a super-flattering fit that’s almost as good as custom — and at $98, much less expensive!

 

White House Black Market blousePair it with a v-neck in a black and white print, like this $68 top from White House Black Market, to subtly enhance your figure.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Michael Kors Belt3. Belt
Mrs. O shows off her tiny waist with this patent belt from Alaia, that’s priced at about $500. If your wardrobe budget isn’t exactly presidential, you can snag a similar cincher for just $35, like this MICHAEL Michael Kors belt.

Charlotte Russe bracelets4. Bracelets
The first lady of style is fond of jewelry from edgy designer Tom Binns, whose pearl bracelets cost $900, but you can snag a whole stack at Charlotte Russe for  $4!

Madden Pumps5. Pumps
Michelle Obama’s black patent Stuart Weitzman pumps are a manageable height for a busy lady, and the toe is a perfect balance of round and pointed. Such classics are worth the splurge at $298, but you can also find a perfect pair at a lower price. These pumps from Steve Madden Madden Girl are just $39.95.
