Michelle Obama was known as a seriously fashionable first lady, but her style has remained strong since she left the White House. It is possible that his family has taken a deserved vacation since the presidency of Barack Obama, but most of the best outfits of FLOTUS were worn while the work was being done.
From imparting inspirational speeches to encouraging students to stay in school, Obama has been presenting his A game in style, all while making a difference. Here are 15 of her best looks since her days as first lady.
Obama looked elegant and relaxed as she left Upland, a restaurant in New York City, where she and her husband enjoyed lunch with U2 Bonus in March 2017. We love how her blouse brings a touch of white in the overall scheme Black and gray, but still ties in the darker shades at the top. His gray coat is perfect for a rainy day in the city.
Next: She is as prepared as ever.
Make a public appearance
When making one of his first public appearances since the departure of his family from the White House, Obama did not stop bringing his style of play. He gave a speech at the American Institute of Architects in Orlando, Florida in April 2017, looking as balanced as ever. Her asymmetrical black, white and beige dress with color locks from Lafayette is elegant, but a little more relaxed for the former FLOTUS.
Next: She knows she looks good.
Take care of business
Obama looked stunning in this black dress with hood sleeves and white polka dots. From the look on his face, he knew he was rocking her too. She and her husband were doing business in Chicago, revealing plans for the Obama Presidential Center on May 3, 2017.
Next: casual had never looked so close together.
We have never seen a completely gray outfit so cool. Obama kept him informal while repeating his alma mater, Princeton, at MMS 2017 College Signing Day on May 5, 2017. His gray jeans, cardigan and sneakers definitely look like his version of college fashion, and we love it.
Next: She goes from casual to completely elegant.
As fast as Obama can be casual, she can get her best evening dress. He looked as impressive as ever in Boston, Massachusetts, while the former president received the 2017 John F. Kennedy Profile in Courage Award. Next to her husband, Obama’s dress with jewelry tones makes her look royalty. Completed the look with drop-down earrings and a beautiful updo hairstyle.
Next: Not many could achieve this style.
Rocking a statement blouse
This is definitely a statement blouse if we have ever seen one. The dramatic structure of ups and downs could not be uprooted by many, but Obama shook it. We love how he wrapped his waist with a large black belt and tied the black with straight leg pants and pointed heels.
Obama had a busy May 2017, this time bringing his taste for fashion to the Summit Healthier America in Washington, D.C.
Next: Italy got its best style so far.
Daring style in Italy
On a trip to Montalcino, Italy, Obama gave another kick to his style. We can not get enough of his one-shoulder look on top for Teija, along with his white jeans, sandals and a Jimmy Choo bag. Their silver hoops and oversized sunglasses definitely add an extra dose of cool factor.
Next: She plays with shoulder designs once again.
High Waist Goddess
Obama looked like a goddess in these elegant high-waisted green pants. We love the looks of high fashion, but at the same time casual, that she brought in her trip to Italy, this time in Sienna. She played with shoulder designs once again in this white Club Monaco blouse. Her gold accessories were the perfect touch, but we especially love the contrast in color with her dark red bag.
Next: You will not believe how impressive it looked.
Asymmetric and ferocious
Only two words can properly describe the Obama set here: asymmetric and fierce. Her black shoes and the Cushnie et Ochs dress almost look like a set, with funny angles that perfectly complemented each other. She complemented the look with two Hearts on Fire rings, which are supposedly worth more than $ 20,000.
We are confident that she felt safe presenting the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at the 2017 ESPY Awards in July 2017.
Next: She looks elegant while defending women.
Obama looked very feminine in this pink flower dress with white stilettos in Together with The Women’s Foundation of Colorado. Lauren Y. Casteel, during the live conversation with the executive director of the foundation, Obama had an important message for women. According to The Denver Post, she “[urged] women to harness their power without hiding their scars.”
Next: He put the perfect summer touch on this suit.
During a July 2017 visit to Dunbar High School in Washington, D.C., Obama sent an inspiring message to his students. He even captured the moment on Instagram, writing: “I am very proud of you for overcoming difficulties and getting the education you need and deserve.”
She brought her classic style while making a difference, giving her brown suit an elegant touch of summer. His white V-neck, cropped pants and fashionable sandals give a completely new meaning to casual business.
Next: She looked nothing fancy.
Striped fabrics in Pennsylvania
While in Philadelphia for the Pennsylvania Women’s Conference in October 2017, Obama’s striped style was nothing more than elegant. Her midi dress in black and white was adorned with white buttons, adding a modern pop with details.
Next: This pattern definitely appears.
Experimenting with patterns
Obama’s wardrobe is definitely familiar with black and white designs, and this Naeem Khan dress is no exception. This funky pattern could show that she is experiencing a little more with fashion now that she is no longer the first lady, but the silhouette is still polished and professional.
And yes, that is David Letterman with whom he is sitting on the stage. They joined in October 2017 for a special evening with former first lady Michelle Obama at The Streicker Center in New York City.
Next: His fashion was definitely on the point.
Pretty in plaid
Obama’s fashion lived up to this beautiful checkered dress by Preen by Thronton Bregazzi. We could not think of a better shoe to match with the dress, which includes thick heels and a simple strap. He watched the Obama Foundation Summit on November 1, 2017 in Chicago, where he sat with the poet Elizabeth Alexander.
Next: She looked radiant in this black and white outfit.
Obama looked positively radiant between her husband and Chance the Rapper. The three met on the last day of the Obama Foundation Summit, where the first couple spoke and Chance the Rapper was introduced, among many other leading artists.
We can not take our eyes off Obama’s structured black robe combined with his white top with unique ruffles. It looks comfortable, but it brought its characteristic modern elegance to the stage.
