michelle obama inauguration dayvia Voices

It goes without saying that Michelle Obama is perhaps one of the chicest First Ladies to step foot in the White House. What Michelle wears is modest and sophisticated yet young and edgier than what has been seen previously by the Presidents’ wives. At 50 years young (it was her birthday on Friday!), we think she still looks absolutely stunning.

Her big day reminded us to take a look at some of her more notable looks, and the above popped up as a perfect winter outfit. Pictured here she wears a Thom Browne coat and dress, J.Crew belt, and Reed Krakoff boots.While the First Lady was praised for mixing high and low with this look, it is safe to say that it still comes in at a hefty price tag.

Here we have outlined just how to recreate this at a fraction of the price. The Mango coat exhibits similar qualities to the Thom Browne in its structured, fit-and-flare nature. Pair it with this $3 New Look belt, and you will be good to go. It is important to remember that the coat is the center of attention here and all you need to do is pinpoint the perfect accessories. The colorful suede gloves and over-the-knee boots are other necessary additions.

Finally, to complete this, make sure you give you hair an all over shine. Michelle Obama is never caught off guard and always shows off her perfectly primped locks. Invest in this Bumble & Bumble shampoo and prepare to exhibit your luscious locks to the world.
