I recently came across this article featuring Michelle Obama’s stylish combo of a high-lo striped button-front tunic, black skinny trousers, and wide black corset belt. I have long been a fan of Michelle Obama’s personal style, which has always felt so accessible even when she chooses edgy, fashion-forward pieces.
When I saw Obama’s outfit, I immediately thought, “Oh, I have an idea of what to wear!” So I immediately pinned her outfit for inspiration. I paired my thin-striped blue button-front shirt with black ankle pants and black patent leather heels. My wide black stretchy belt mimicked the corset belt of Obama’s inspiration outfit.
It’s so hard to photograph the thin stripes of this button-front shirt! The stripes are more obvious in person.
I felt a little mod in this outfit, with the ankle pants and wide belt. It was a very comfortable outfit to wear for work!
