Michelle Obama's "Becoming" Book Tour Fashion: What we want to see her in

First Lady Style Fashion
From the jeweled gold lamé Micheal Kors gown to the Balenciaga Thigh High knife boots, Michelle Obama has given us looks no other political figure could. Her second part of "The Becoming" book tour is set to began this week and we've got a few looks we'd like to see our faorite FLOTUS in. Before we get to them, lets recap last year's fashion from her sold out tour.

For the book tour Michelle Obama didn't want to remind us of the First Lady we all knew. She wanted us to get to know Michelle and her own power as a woman. Her stylist Meredith Koop told New York Times last year that she wanted to work with more brands that she hadn't worked with before. Michelle's wardrobe has spanned from brands like Cushnie to Thom Browne. And Meredith has been the mastermind behind the style.

Last tour she wore several designers that were fresh to the game and that appeal to different audiences. Pyer Moss, Akris, and Loewe are a few of those brands.  Koop suggested in her last interview that Michelle would be wearing a lot more suits and pants. And that she did.

We are in the midst of the second part of the tour and we are loving every look as usual. This time the "Becoming" tour kicked off in Washington and will be headed to Europe in April. Here are some outfits and runway looks we'd like to see her in.


Michelle surprised us when she wore the yellow high slit Balenciaga dress just when we were getting acclimated to suits but if she remains in suits here are some recommendations:

During Michelle's First Lady days there were a few brands that dressed her and that she wore often. These brands included Thakoon, Jason Wu, and J. Crew. Here are three more designers she has worn multiple times:

When Meredith Koop has dressed Michelle Obama, they take the location of said appearance in consideration. It has also been known that designers from different countries will dress a figure when they visit.

When in Sweden, Stockholm based Acne Studios Spring 2019. When in Paris, wear Chloe Spring 2019. When in Canada, wear Beaufille's Monet floral embroidered dress.


Jamila Jones, designer of Jamila Mariama and a designer at Macy's, weighs in with her picks for Michelle Obama:
Look one: "I’m obsessed the colors and texture of this matching plaid set by designer Stella Jean from her recent Fall 2019 collection. Michelle’s style consists of a lot of structured pieces and this outfit does that but with a eye-catching edge!"
Look two: "This shade of yellow would look so stunning on her. I love how the volume sleeves and fit and flare skirt creates a strong silhouette. This knit two piece design is from Italian designer Roberto Cavalli’s Fall 2019 collection."
Look three: "Black designer, Laquan Smith, is known for his ability to create glamorous but sexy designs. Michelle has always supported black designers during her time as First Lady and I think she would rock this trench coat so well. Animal print has been a huge trend on the runway and this piece is a show- stopper."

Lastly, Jamila would love to see Michelle Obama in one of her dresses from Macy's. "Michelle Obama has great sense of fashion and has always worn a variety of designs ranging in price and popularity. I designed this striped wrap midi dress for Macy’s and it has such a classic style and great fit." You can shop the piece here.


I personally have loved Michelle Obama's fashion transition from First Lady to a best selling author. She has always graced us with elegance, poise, and a hint of "I'm still a grown women and I'm sure in my own skin." From shoulder baring dresses to thigh high heeled boots she shows that she can make a statement, be sexy, and still be a boss. For the continuation of the tour I'd love for the suits to stay and I'd like to see more independent owned fashion labels. Or even better, black designer brands.
