Affordable first lady fashion: 11 times Michelle Obama wore Converse sneakers, Timberland boots, H&M, Asos and more high-street brands
Michelle Obama has never been a stranger to affordable fashion. While campaigning for Barack Obama’s first term in 2008, during an appearance on The View, she wore a dress from White House Black Market. The US$150 black-and-white printed dress seemingly sold out overnight and shot designer Donna Ricco to fame.
While attending the G20 Summit in 2009, her outfit came entirely from J. Crew, from the glitzy US$300 cardigan to the US$160 mint green pencil skirt. She layered a US$20 tank top, the most affordable part of her outfit, under her cardigan.
That same year, Obama wore an affordable dress from H&M while appearing on The Today Show. She altered the US$35 polka dot dress to include sleeves, according to InStyle.
She turned heads in an Asos dress while campaigning in Iowa in 2012. The fit-and-flare, ‘50s-style dress originally retailed for US$95, according to Fashionista. Actress Jessica Alba later wore the same dress in 2014.
Obama wore a colourful floral dress from Talbots in 2013. The former first lady was spotted wearing pieces from the brand throughout her husband’s presidency, but this dress stands out as one of her most affordable looks. The yellow printed dress retailed for US$55 when Obama was spotted wearing it, down from its original price of US$170.
