FASHION FAB: First Lady Michelle Obama Is Crazy For POLKA DOTS!
First Lady Michelle Obama isn't shy about her love for polka dots. And since she's become a fashion icon in her own right, it's a trend everyone is going for this summer.
See how Mrs. O rocks it inside...
Prints, bold colors, and bright mismatches took over the spring. Now stars, stripes and dots are taking over this summer. And we've noticed Mrs. O is crazy for dots!
This Tuesday, pictured on the far left, the President's better half made an appearance back home in Chicago at The Standard Club in a white flowy Jason Wu dress doused with black polka dots and a black sheer overlay with white polka dots at the top. And completed the look with her signature belted waist.
The Mrs. O retail effect was in FULL effect as the black and white layered and ruffled polka dotted H&M dress she rocked at the "Today Show" back in February (middle), with yellow heels and a red belt, sold out in minutes. She decided to modify the dotted dress to a sleeveless version (far right), and belt it with her fave Alaia belt, for her appearance in Colorado last Thursday on the campaign trail.
And back in May at a Mother's Day Joining Forces Event in DC, Mrs. O paired her dotted blue shirt with a red striped and dotted cardigan for a bold look.
First Lady Michelle may be all about business as she makes her nonstop rounds all around the country for various causes. But her style is all (fabulous) play. Are you feeling the dotted looks for the summer?
BONUS: President Obama just received great news today as the Supreme Court upheld an integral clause of his Affordable Care Act, which in turn rules the plan, also called Obamacare, Constitutional. As it relates to individual health insurance/health care, citizens will now be afforded more protection and more opportunities to attain healthcare. But there are still logistics to be worked out. Get the lowdown HERE. How do you feel about the decision?
