Now, here’s how you do summer.
The Obamas are visiting Italy, and while sightseeing in Montalcino, former first lady Michelle Obama wore a one-shoulder rose-colored top, paired with cropped white jeans and white slides. She accented the ensemble with a cross-body white bag.
Hair loose and breezy? Check. Oversize sunglasses? Check.
“Michelle is off-duty!” sums up style watcher and author Amy Tara Koch. “The holiday-happy look revolves around a brightly colored top that is casual but on-trend and proportion-perfect. Michelle makes the most of her buff arms, and works the shoulder-baring shirt by tempering the volume with a cross-body bag and fitted, tapered distressed denim with frayed hems.”
The adorable top from Finnish brand Teija costs $397. The on-trend hoops, meanwhile, are by Jennifer Fisher and cost $295. Finally, the chic sunglasses are by Morgenthal Frederics and will cost you $497.
As for Obama’s shoulders, that’s #MondayMotivation right there. The first lady has made headlines — some positive, some not so much — for displaying her shoulders and arms in the past, most notably in her first official portrait in 2009.
Supporters hailed her modern approach to fashion and for showing off her toned physique, while others s lammed her for being too informal and casual.
Regardless of your stance on Obama’s arms — the first lady showed them off at numerous high-profile events. One of the standouts was her Naeem Khan one-shoulder confection, worn to the Nordic state dinner in May 2016 and her white Brandon Maxwell, also donned to a state dinner in August 2016.
As for her travel ensemble, some on the Internet were impressed:
