Dressing Like A First Lady With The Right Accessories

In the wake of the election there’s no denying there’s always been a slight fascination with the presidential first family especially the First Ladies for us ladies.  Let’s be real though, Michelle’s arms don’t help our economy, Hillary’s hair does not dictate our foreign policy and Jackie O’s sunglasses don’t shield us from war however I have no problem obsessing over it all and they will always be a bit of a fashion icon.  So in honor of their chic lady like style here’s my red white and blue election day look.

First Lady Like Look

First Lady Like Look

The key is in the accessories!  A skater dress lays out the perfect canvas.  I personally find this navy jersey dress from Loft outlet to be perfect.  By itself this dress is not nearly as exciting or flattering but add a wide belt from White House Black Market and you have a fit and flare style highlighting all the right places.  Pile on the right accessories and you’ve bumped the dress from common to presidential!  That and maybe my Jackie O influenced Marc Jacobs sunglasses…

Lady Like Accessories highlighting the Over Ice Necklace

The spotlight of this look is the Over Ice necklace ($30) from mark.  It has that 60’s appeal but made modern.  The chunky hematite chain makes this necklace wearable with a casual sweater or your best LBD.  Also from mark are the Star Studded Earrings ($14) and the Glove Story Gloves ($24).  Gloves are having a major moment right now worn with everything from your parka to your chic office wear and these red genuine leather version are the perfect price, quality and style!  They kinda hide my watch and navy and rhinestone bracelet but I love it when they peek out!  Last but not least… the red lips!  I also lined my eyes in blue and used white eyeshadow but you can’t see… anything to theme out the day I tell ya!
